vintage made modern

If you swoon for reproduction fabrics and traditional quilt patterns, here's a treat in store for you. I've taken some unfinished vintage quilts and made them into patterns you can use today.  Whether you're using feed sack cloth you've found on Etsy or eBay, or you're ready to cut into a bundle of pre-cuts from your favorite designer, I've got some fun patterns for you soon!!

Putting food by

If you are looking for some resources for canning and preserving the harvest, I've shared a few of my go-to books and recipes.

bits & Pieces

Make do, or do without.  My mama taught me to use every last little string, scrap, & crumb from my fabric stash. I'll share some of my favorite tips, tricks, & techniques, as well as ideas for scrap management plans.  Find yourself falling in love with bits & pieces, too.

Paper piecing

English Paper Piecing (EPP) and foundation paper piecing are fantastic ways to use your fabric scraps. I'm sharing my favorite techniques and materials for creating beautiful quilts with paper piecing methods.  English paper piecing is great on the go, and foundation paper piecing can help stretch your quilting boundaries with precision piecing.


Big stitches

If you need to unwind and slow down the harried pace of life, hand quilting is a perfect past time.  I'm not talking teeny, tiny perfect stitches for an heirloom quilt.  Give your quilts an unforgettable, vintage look with big stitches and just enjoy the process. 

Ramblings & sundries

Simply because it's nearly impossible to quilt 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, I've got some great recipes to share with you, as well as some little peeks into daily life and the challenges of living with MS and single parenting, even with a half-empty nest.  Just for fun, I'll share some strategies for controlling the chaos and finding contentment at home.  Less housework equals more time for quilting.
