The woes of an independent designer

It’s been a hard year. At times scary. Challenging, frustrating, even annoying. And also exciting, invigorating, inspiring… happy.

A panel quilt

A gazillion years ago I purchased a whole bunch of fabric panels on a super sale. Fast forward to today… and I still haven’t done anything with any of those panels.

My Dream House

It’s back! The CD version of this collection, published initially by The Electric Quilt Company, was discontinued a couple of years ago. As I keep receiving requests for it, I finally got around to putting a  downloadable version together, which is now available through our online shop!

Sneak peeks

Because of all the time taken in house building this year, work in general and this blog in particular have fallen way behind. I am now scrambling to catch up!

Some of my favorites this year

Since I really haven’t done much sewing this year, I’ve been living vicariously through my designs. Looking back over the years, I can see growth in my drawing skills. More perfection, and more ambitious designs.

Even more complex hexies

After my last post I recalled I have worked with a slightly different concept for pieced hexies before. Actually, they are even more complex than those Mickey Depre teaches in her Pieced Hexies class on Craftsy.

Still can’t draw a straight line!

Thursdays are dedicated to sewing/teaching/learning with my niece, Ana Lía. Though she is a relatively new quilter, she is extremely talented and catches on very quickly. It’s been fun to design and sew with someone who thinks way beyond traditional beginner quilts.

Floral whimsy… finished at last!

This project has been sitting on my table for months! Christmas and the New Year came and went by, and over that holiday week I actually quilted it. And since then it has continued to sit, waiting for the binding.

A seven-patch table topper

My beginner piecing class focuses on block design and piecing: 4-patch, 9-patch, 5-patch, and 7-patch. I tell my students that if they learn how to draw and sew blocks based on these four grids, they will have enough to make quilts for a lifetime.

Aha! moments

Earlier this week I stopped by the post office to pick up a fun package sent by the Electric Quilt Company, with copies of my recently released book and a few other goodies. Love the larger format. LOVE the spiral binding! 🙂

    I am a self-learner. I taught myself to sew and to quilt. And I taught myself how to draw. I am learning how to dye my own fabrics and am dabbling with mixed media. I am a quilt designer and teacher, and design and publish my own line of quilt patterns. With this blog I would like to share the bits and pieces of my life.
