Split Arrows in Batiks

I get to share a finish this week that was actually finished almost a year ago!! This quilt was made to show off the Reflections fabric collection by Island Batik, and it appeared in their catalog to sell the fabric. But that meant that I had to make it in secret - starting over a year ago!

A Solar Eclipse Quilt

It's been a few weeks since the total solar eclipse passed across the US, but I wanted to share the quilt that I made to mark the occasion!

Raw edge applique circle themed quilt for pi day

Every year, I make a circle themed quilt for Pi Day. I've been doing it since 2017, so it's definitely a tradition!

Dancing in the rain!

Sometimes, I get wild and crazy ideas. This is one of those times!

A Third and a First

The Exploding Heart quilt pattern launched in 2020, and four years later, there's now a MINI Exploding Heart quilt pattern! When I was looking for fabrics that would work well for the smaller version, I was immediately drawn to Tilda fabrics. They're from Norway, and more pricey than typical fabrics. This makes them special - and perfect for making a wall-hanging sized Exploding Heart quilt!
