Are you excited for Week 2 of our Celebrate Christmas Quilt-Along? I know I am. Let’s head to the sewing rooms and get the party started…
How does the quilt-along work? Over a 12-week period, 36 fabulously talented designers will be making 12″ blocks that you can make. You can pick and choose which blocks you want to make. Sash them, add borders, baste it, quilt it, and have it ready to give-away or keep for yourself this Christmas. Or you might want to use some of the blocks for a mini quilt, a table runner, bags, whatever you like.

What is your quilting style?
Simple, quick & easy! I love designing quilts for children – using cozy flannels and embroidered designs to inject color and personality into the project.
How did you get started quilting and/or designing?
My grandma taught me to sew, using her ancient Singer sewing machine. Once I had our first child, I wanted to make him a baby quilt. I took a quilting class, loved every minute of it and didn’t ever want to stop quilting.
Do you have a favourite quilt?
My favorite quilt is an Ohio Star pattern that I made using Robyn Pandolph fabrics. The muted, complementary colors of these fabrics sold me immediately!
