Christmas Chaos

The Christmas Chaos pattern is the first pattern that I have made that I feel really passionate about. First of all, I have always felt like the majority of the Christmas quilt patterns out there are very traditional looking. I wanted an alternative- not just for you- but for my own home! Second of all, […]

Paper Lanterns Quilt

The Paper Lanterns quilt pattern looks tricky, but is broken down into easy steps! I’m a very visual person- so I like to make sure that my patterns are written clearly and broken down into picture steps! So even though this pattern is an Intermediate level pattern, I’m confident that any skill level could accomplish […]

Ironing Board

I think it is safe to say that we all have that dream craft room in our minds! Well, currently my craft room is my bedroom. It’s not ideal, but we make it work. About 8 months ago, my husband’s younger brother came to live with us. So, I moved my craft room out of […]

Quilt Coat 2.0

Some of you may remember that my first quilt coat did not go so well. I bought a coat pattern that I thought was my size, but turned out to be an AU size and not a US size… so it was actually 2 sizes too small. I was devastated! It was such a huge […]

Comic Relief Quilt Pattern

The Comic Relief quilt pattern is here! I’m so excited to share it with you. I also wanted to share a little bit about this pattern and why I chose to design and publish it. Last year I released the Evolve quilt pattern. It was all about how we have struggled through 2020 and the […]

Modish Quilter Magazine

From the Beginning I want to share the story behind Modish Quilter Magazine and how it came to be. If you don’t mind, I’d like to start at the very beginning! My father grew up with meager means and bold aspirations. He recalls his first entrepreneurial endeavor to be a paper route in seventh grade. […]

Paper Planes

I’d like to introduce my next quilt pattern, Paper Planes! And like my last pattern, Evolve, this one has a bit of back story and meaning as well! This pattern has several significant meanings to me and to our family. There was a particularly drab day during this past winter when our family was all […]

Assembling Your Backing

Let’s talk backing. Assembling your backing should be as painless and easy as possible. I don’t know about you, but by the time I get done with my quilt top, I want to spend as little time as possible on the backing. I’m too excited to have it done! Most patterns come with backing instructions […]

From Craft to Career

Growing my craft into a career has been an evolving process. I started this journey about a year ago, and it has been a wild ride. Last year I spent a lot of time psyching myself up to shifting gears with my business. I had spent 5 years growing my longarming clientele and loved my […]
