About

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.  Sort of.  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.

I live a ferry ride away from Seattle with my husband and three small 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, long naps, 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!
