My latest block, Field of View, is the block of the month for The Modern Quilt Guild this month! The simple construction block is adaptable to so many fun quilt patterns!

Members of The Modern Quilt Guild (MQG) can log into the site and find it in the Resources section. Once logged in, you’ll get directions on how to make the block, as well as a free quilt pattern using the block. The MQG also provides several other quilt examples to see the versatility of the block.

It’s so much fun to collaborate with The MQG! I’ve said before and will say it again – they take my work and make it even better than I could imagine. The samples they have are amazing and I’d like to make one of each please :)

If you’re not a member of The MQG it’s easy to become one! You can join a local chapter in your area or become an “individual” member and that will give you access to all the amazing resources and connections with quilters all around the world. I was an individual member for several years. After moving, I found a local chapter and have made many wonderful connections.

Be on the lookout in 2019 for a new block I’m working on that will give you so many possibilities that you don’t even need to decide which quilt top layout to do until the very end!

2020 Planning

I recently learned about Yvonne Fuch’s ( QuiltingJetGirl on Instagram !) #2020PlanningParty and I thought it was just the swift kick in the pants I needed to really think about my professional and personal quilting goals in 2020. Here are my thoughts leading into the new year. Professional Goals 1. Teach new quilters. The wheels have been set into motion for an opportunity to teach a quilting 101 class in my community in the spring. I’ve spent the last several months developing a beginner sampler pattern and I’ll be wrapping it up in a few weeks. Here’s hoping there are a few people interested in learning how to quilt! 2. Print four of my patterns. A few shops and guilds have asked me about printed patterns for their stores or for upcoming lecturers. Currently I only offer patterns as PDFs so I have a goal of getting a small batch of four specific patterns printed in 2020. 3. Release three new patterns. With some of my other professional and personal quilting goals in 2020, I’

Quilt Project Tracking Document

Have you ever found yourself staring at a WIP not knowing where you left off? Have you ever started to fill out a quilt show form and realized you didn't have all the details needed? There are several missing details on quilts I've made that I sure wish I would have better tracked! A couple years ago, I started a quilt project tracking document to keep better record of my quilts. The document has basic information like project name, year started, pattern, fabric, status (cut, pieced, quilted, bound) and year finished. There's also a general notes field so I can add whatever detail I'd like to have down the road. It's been exciting to look back at the document and see what I've accomplished! I have a current projects tab and a completed projects tab so I have an accurate look at what I'm working on. I tend to work on 10-20 projects at a time, so it's easy to forget where I was or what else I need to work on without the document. Since I am a pattern w

Hera Marker - Quilt Notion Review

I have used a variety of marking pencils and chalks to mark my quilts but nothing compares, in my opinion, to the hera marker. What is a Hera Marker? A hera marker is a small piece of plastic with a curved tip used to make a crease in the fabric. I use the “Clover Hera Marker Slim” which is a slightly longer, slimmer version than the regular “Clover Hera Marker.” Honestly, I couldn’t tell you why I chose the slim version – all I remember is trying to find one online because I wanted to try it and this is what I ended up with. How Does it Work? To use the hera marker, line up the curved tip on the fabric and press down, like you're using a pencil, to create the lines or shapes you desire to quilt. I use my quilting rulers in order to achieve straight lines. The curved plastic creates a temporary crease in the fabric. I’ve used it on all shades of fabric, from light to dark, and have always been able to see the crease as I quilt on my machine. Also, there’s no harm if you deci
