Fretwork Quilt Made with CoCo Fabric: Basics Blog Hop

Welcome to the Studio R Quilts stop of Michael Miller Fabrics’ Basics Blog Hop! Today, I am sharing with you my Fretwork quilt made with CoCo fabrics. How It All Started When Michael Miller Fabrics put out a call for designs for their Basics Blog Hop, I couldn’t wait to submit a few ideas. Those that know me, know that I love working with basic fabrics, especially those that read solid from a distance. I say “read solid” because once you take a closer look, you find so much more.

High Rise Quilt Featuring Calm Lagoon from Island Batik

Welcome to the Calm Lagoon Blog Hop! As the weather turns colder in Wisconsin I am escaping to a warmer place (if only in my mind) with this fun Calm Lagoon High Rise quilt. Calm Lagoon from Island Batik is the latest signature collection by Sherry Shish of Powered by Quilting. Clear hues of blues and greens remind me of some of my favorite island vacations. And the whales, turtles, and seashells make me want to go diving. Where does this fabric take you? What to make, what to make? When [...]

It’s Time to Spring Clean the Studio

The annual Spring Clean Your Studio Blog Hop, hosted by Cheryl Sleboda of Muppin.com, couldn’t have come at a better time. Back in January, I proclaimed that 2021 was going to be the year I put order and organization into my quilting studio. As a pattern designer, my studio space not only serves as my place to sew but also where I run my business. This means the space also has my inventory, shipping materials, and office supplies. While I have always dreamed of a large, working studio space, the reality is that I work out [...]

The tree is decorated, the presents wrapped, and the Christmas lights are all aglow. The sights of the Christmas season are all around.

You see it all everywhere this time of year but really, this is a classic color combination that looks great together year-round and will never go out of style. I found this Christmas photo and it was a great example of how [...]
