Looking Back

3-16-2014_thumb[2] IMG_7458_thumb[4]
2012 was a full, wonderful year and I’m a little sad it went by so fast.  I had my Sophie, made lots of quilts, wrote a book (I’ll show you soon!), visited 2 quilt markets, painted like a mad woman,  moved to Seattle, and in between all of the “big” things we enjoyed all the little things that matter the most.   I have a feeling that 2013 will be just as full…but I sure love it that way.
Happy New Year to you all!

    Welcome to the great Pacific NW! What an exciting year you had!

    I'm making a quilt with your Spin Cycle pattern and I'm loving it (even if my squares are only 12.5"….oops with my cutting or sewing :) )

    Can't wait for your book!

    I just began my very first quilt ever this week. It's simple, easy, and I've gotten help and advice from an aunt and a friend who are both avid quilters. I subscribed to your blog after seeing links to it on Pinterest. Your quilts and patterns are so inspiring, and I'm looking forward to creating some of them in the future!
