My Stop on the High Tea Blog Hop :)

Photo Aug 27, 4 06 58 PM

The best gift of designing fabrics is seeing the creations made with them. These last 3 weeks watching my High Tea blog hop have been truly inspiring. I feel so blessed to have had all the participation from so many talented makers & designers. You can see a recap of all the beautiful projects shared from week 1 and week 2 of my High Tea blog hop, and I’ll be posting week 3 soon. But first, I have a little stop of my own. πŸ™‚


This is a special sneak peak of my second quilt as you go book in the works.

I’ve been working away on this specific quilt every night for the last couple of months. I wish I could share more, but here are some glimpses and up close photos of my fabrics.

This wouldn’t be a proper post without throwing in a couple glamour shots of my quilting buddy, Paige.

Thanks to all of your support, my second book should be out next year, along with my 2nd fabric collection. Thank you so much.Β  I wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing if not for all of you.


Over the years I’ve really become infatuated with vintage style quilt and dishes, drawing lots of inspiration from them (hence my first fabric collection called High Tea). πŸ˜‰ My 2nd book will reflect my love for all things vintage, while putting a modern spin to it.

My first QAYG book was very modern with improvisational quilting and quick cutting techniques. My 2nd book will build upon the first with an additional QAYG joining technique, but it also takes on a more classic approach with timeless and traditional heirloom style blocks.

My husband and I read your reviews on my first book , and we listened. Thank you to all that have taken the time to post a review. Reading the comments where people found so much creativity from the technique, or are now quilting because of the book (where it was once too daunting), encouraged me to write book 2. Thank you so much.

That’s all I can say for now. πŸ™‚


The red fig and dusty pink colorways from my High Tea collection have been my favorite to work with.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my High Tea party stop. πŸ™‚ By now my fabric should have shipped to shops that ordered it, so please be on the lookout. Some shops that I know of that carry my fabrics can be found here.

I’ll be back with a recap from week 3 next.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

    As a retired quilter without the means to hire someone to finish my quilts your QAYG book is a way to continue my quilting. Thank you.

    how lovely! I am always drawn to the old-style quilting as I received several from my grandmother, and great grandmother who were quilters. And I love the name of your blog! I grew up in the Pacific Northwest (Portland) and find crafting so relaxing on a rainy afternoon!
