Georgia Quilt Show.

I got some awesome news this week. My Palmetto (not the version pictured above, but this one) won 2 awards at the Georgia Quilt Show–second place and judge’s choice! I’m super thrilled and honored.


For anyone in the Duluth, Georgia area (near Atlanta) you can go check it out. The show runs through tomorrow. And you might even be able to find my patterns at one of the vendors, or for sure at Intown Quilters in Decatur.


Happy Friday folks!

Ah, texture. Such a wonderful thing. And one of my favorite things about quilting.

It’s been nice to be able to enjoy some of my quilts since getting them back recently. I finished my aerial cover sample right before her launch in Kansas City, and she’s been touring quilt shops ever since. So we haven’t had much time together outside of her making.


While laying it out yesterday, I was reminded of how much I love texture and my obsession with it in this project.

I am also one of those people who enjoys both sides of a quilt, especially when the back allows you to see the front in a different way.

Also recently, I have been killing rotary cutters. I’m not sure if I’m using the wrong type, using them the wrong way, or just totally unaware of my own brute strength, but I’m on my third in about 2 months.

I’m down to the little guy on the right, and based on my track record with the big ones, he’s not going to last long.

I’m taking recommendations…
