My Quilts in Modern Patchwork Magazine and Other Happenings

I just got the news today that the latest issue of Modern Patchwork Magazine is coming to news stands April 21st and two of my quilts are going to be featured!  How do you spell EXCITED?!  I am beyond humbled and flattered by how my quilts are shown in an article by Cinzia Allocca titled “Minimalism in Modern Quilt Design”.

Check out their website for more on what’s inside and there is a link there to purchase a copy as well if you are interested. (Modern Patchwork Spring 2015 – Special Issues – Blogs – Quilting Daily)

With precious free time, I have been playing more with bags, this time using recycled suede.  Believe it or not this is my first Lonestar quilting project.  I have so many other ideas for this topstitching technique.  The possibilities are endless.

Although we have had to stick close to home this Spring Break because of work, I have been doing a lot of secret sewing for friends (can’t wait to share what I have been working on) and we made a quick trip to Pt. Reyes National Seashore in Marin County for some hiking.  The hills were full of wild irises, California poppies and other wildflowers.  The area was at it’s finest.

And although I can’t share yet my secret sewing, I can share a simple boy sweatshirt I made for a friend that includes an impromptu cloud out of a washcloth and leftover vinyl.  As I was making it, much needed rain started to fall with more on the way.  Who needs rain dances when one can make rain clothing instead? 😉

  1. Congratulations on the magazine! This is very exciting!! I’ve been enjoying your new foray into modernhandcraftesque topstitching projects. I just might have to try one myself. I’m a suck for Lonestars, and this might be just the new twist for me to try.

  2. The bag is too fab. The blue is electric against the gray. And that is great news about the magazine. If this is the first time, I know it won’t be the last! Glad to hear ya’ll got some rain. Limantour is one of my favorite places in California; so many great hikes there.

  3. congratulations on your magazine feature! I can say I knew her when 🙂 I’ve already told you how disgustingly gorgeous that Lonestar bag is. I’m curious about the adorable sweatshirt. Did you make the sweatshirt or embellish ready made one? The embellishment is wonderfully darling and something I must copy. But you have downplayed your sewing skills if you made the sweatshirt as well.

    1. We’ve been inspiring each other from the start. I must admit it is a little unnerving to see my stuff in a magazine but I am obviously completely flattered to see it there. I did not make the sweatshirt, just altered it BUT am using my serger now-so fun!

    1. I will always be a doctor Beth (and of course a mom and wife) but the making gig-it soothes my soul. Feel so lucky to have a creative outlet and friends like you to share the journey with.
