So excited to announce my newest quilt pattern, Fly By! Designed exclusively for Stash Builder Box July subscription. You can sign up to receive the box on their site now through July 14th. Pattern includes two sizes- baby and throw size- and four color-way suggestions. Cheers y'all!
Am so excited to share with y'all this commissioned twin size Cascade Quilt for a little boys room. The client requested a blue/grey ombre color-way but with more blue and less grey. We worked together until we had a color-way that we liked. Custom monogrammed initials were included on the bottom as well. Perfect detail for an heirloom quilt. Happy Monday y'all!
Am so thrilled to participate in the What Shade Are You Blog Hop with RJR Fabrics. With springtime’s arrival, I wanted to create something bright and fun to reflect the warmer weather and sunshine as well as challenge myself with a minimal quilt block design. Thus the Mini RJR Springtime Quilt! For the front I used the following solids: Beach Coral (355), Chili Pepper (49 T), Bougainvillea (361) and Kerchief (364 C+S).
For the back I used Cotton+Steel 2015 Penny Arcade line by Kimberly Kight – it was a perfect fit with the solids. Overall, I really loved working with the fabric! The solids were a dream to sew with and I loved how quickly the mini came together!
Head on over to instagram for a chance to win this 1/2 yard bundle! Happy Friday y'all!
It's been a labor of love over the past few months, but I'm so excited to announce that the Migration and Modern Waves Quilt pattern are finally ready for release!

I am so excited to be the final stop of the Dryad Blog Hop + Giveaway with Shannon Brinkley and Fabri-Quilt!

Shannon's debut fabric line Dryad (which you can read more about here) is filled with awesome nature inspired prints and I was thrilled with the opportunity to work with her collection!
If you follow me on instagram, I shared a sneak peak of my project on Monday.
Below is the full reveal - the Arrowhead mini! Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Thanks again Shannon for this opportunity. Your new line is beautiful!

I had the chance to meet the very talented surface designer and quilter Alison Glass while at Quilt Market this past October, where she debuted her new fabric collection Sun Prints 2016. You can imagine my delight when she emailed later that month asking if I'd like to sew with her new line. Needless to say, her new line is absolutely stunning and was the perfect fit for the Cascade Quilt pattern. This is the first time I've made the Cascade Quilt with prints and I am so thrilled with the results.
For those of you in the Dallas area, I'll be teaching the Cascade Quilt workshop at Urban Spools on February 13th. Details about the workshop can be found here. Would love for y'all to join me! xoxo

Happy New Year y’all! To celebrate the start of 2016, this 8x10 art print PDF is available as a free download. Inspired by my love for the flying geese quilt block, I wanted to explore this pattern in three different color-ways. The yellow color-way is my ode to Robert Kaufman’s 2016 color of the year Highlight, which you can read more about here. Who knows, y’all just might see a new quilt pattern appear in the next few months. Regardless, cheers to a creative, fun-filled 2016! xoxo

Part 2 of Alaska continues with a trip to Homer to go halibut and salmon fishing with the folks from Deep Strike. We really lucked out with the weather and the boat captain and deck hand were amazing. Highly recommend booking a trip with them if you're ever in the area! xoxo
If you follow me on instagram, you knew that September was the month of travel for me. The summer was filled with some not so fun personal stuff and it left me feeling completely tapped out creatively. So when I had a chance to visit a close family friend of mine in Anchorage, Alaska, I jumped on it. Because we all know traveling is the one way to get your creative inspiration back right? Right.
Day one was a late breakfast at Snow City Cafe followed by biking the coastal trail and then grabbing a much deserved glass of champagne (or two) at the Bubbly Mermaid Oyster Bar.
All I can say is that if you ever get a chance to go to Alaska, go. xoxo
So happy to share the latest quilt in the studio - Neutral Courthouse Steps. Made with Kona Cotton Solids - Snow, Natural, Oyster, Ivory, Putty, Sand, Champagne and Tan. Perfect throw to compliment a home! xoxo
To celebrate the Geometric Bliss quilt being featured in the Sept/Oct issue of D Home Magazine, I'm launching this as a free quilt pattern in the shop! If you have a chance, please check out this fabulous nursery, curated by the talented Jamie Laubahn-Oliver - it's chock full of beautiful, creative products. Happy Friday friends! xoxo
This past week I headed down the to south Texas coast to spend time with my family. Days were filled with early morning walks on the beach, family time with my adorable niece and nephew, and lots of creative sewing.
I've been wanting to conduct a quilt study with neutrals and greys and decided that a quilt maquette would be the perfect answer. Luckily, the maquettes came together rather quickly - despite a small mishap with the rotary cutter (documented via instagram).
When comparing the two, my graphic design eye is drawn more to the neutrals, as the colors blend rather seamlessly. Overall, I think the dark greys and blacks were too dark to use compared to the lighter greys. Next time, I'll probably use 6 shades of grey, rather than 8 shades.
Regardless, it was a great experiment and more than likely will be making a few more maquettes in the near future. My next thoughts are what to do with these samples? Lucite frame? iPad cover? The possibilities are endless. Keep your eye on the shop - more than likely will list them for sale in the near future. Happy Monday! xoxo
A new color-way has been listed in the shop for the Arrowhead quilt - Grey! Made with Kona Cotton Iron, Titanium, Graphite, Charcoal, Pepper and Black on the front and Carolyn Friendlander's black crosshatch on the back. The grey arrowhead is great neutral to compliment any home or nursery. xoxo
