Louvered Mini Quilt

As a member of the Modern Quilt Guild, I'm able to participate in a couple quilt challenges they do each year. This spring, Riley Blake sponsored the challenge. I received five fat eighths of fabric and decided to revisit a couple techniques from previous quilts for this one.

Embracing Imperfection - A Rayon Quilt

You all know I love quilty experiments and trying new things, so you know how excited I was when I found out this month's Island Batik ambassador challenge was to try something new!

It was time to cross "rayon quilt" off my quilty bucket list!

USA Map Quilt Surprise

A few months ago, a local friend gave me a box of fabrics that she no longer wanted. When putting the box in my car, she pulled one fabric out (a USA map panel) and said, "I planned to make this for my son, but I'll never get around to it." I knew right at that moment that she would be getting that back!

Fast forward to last weekend, and I gifted her the finished map quilt for her son!

Boho Chic Baby Quilt

As part of the Aurifil Artisan program, I received three fat quarters from Anna Maria Horner's Passion Flower collection and a spool of coordinating Aurifil thread. I could make anything I wanted - so of course I made a quilt!
