Hi there, I’m Allison! I started this blog in 2007 as a way to keep record of the things I was making. I also started quilting around that time, so this blog has followed my journey from a brand new quilter, to a quilter that sort of knows what she’s doing. Blogging is my first love, but I also write and publish quilt patterns, author and contribute to quilting books and magazines, and design fabric sold in quilt shops with Windham Fabrics.
I live a ferry ride away from Seattle with my husband and four kids. I work as a Dental Hygienist here and there, but mainly I stay home with my family now and enjoy this quilty stuff. I also love visiting beaches around our house, anything with sugar, wandering around Target alone, raising bunnies (see this post…so cute!), and long lazy naps (but who doesn’t?).
If you’re a quilter I hope you’ll find some inspiration here, and if you’ve never quilted before I hope my site will help and encourage you along.
Thanks for stopping by! -Allison
