Special News!

I regret not having a heart-themed post or tutorial to share with you all this Valentine’s day. However, I do have some special news that is just as good! :0)  It’s been many late nights leading up to this moment…in fact, it’s 4:45 AM as I type this (I know, I’m screwed!) but I just had to share my news with you before saying good night (or good morning?). If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, then you may have already seen a glimpse of my selvages!


It feels unreal to finally say this, but I am designing my first fabric collection with Lecien Fabrics for you all! Below is a little sneak peak, with more sneak peeks on social media happening this week.

My love for vintage quilts and china dishes have been my inspiration for this collection. It has been quite the journey and a lot of hard work, but it has been worth every minute.


I plan to do a blog post in the near future on how I started this journey authoring quilt books and designing fabrics. I want my journey to be an open book to hopefully inspire anyone that reads me.

By the way, notice anything different about my blog? : ) It’s been a long time coming, but my blog finally had a makeover! Please take a look around & explore…my goal was for it to be more user-friendly. I also needed a fresh look for the new year.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!!!

    Lovely. I love strawberries since I live in Marysville. We have a strawberry festival every year. Will this fabric be sold in shops around here?

      Thank you, Marilyn! I’m so happy you like the strawberries! My fabric will be available worldwide, so your local fabric shop can have it if they order it through their distributor 🙂 It never hurts to let them know to look out for it. It will be in stores this Summer 🙂

    Stunning selection, beautiful! Must go to my quilt shop and see if they have a range of these so I can buy them! Been so hot here in Auckland New Zealand I feel like a wrung out sponge so as soon as the weather gets cooler I will be away with my fabrics going madly where no man is allowed, my sewing room, hahahaha
