Check out my latest collection: Mix It Up!

As I was developing the concept for Mix It Up! I knew I wanted to create a collection that encompassed two things specifically.  I wanted it to be gender neutral and I wanted it to be a stash builder collection.  I get many requests that I definitely keep in mind and many people ask for more “guy friendly” collections.  Mix It Up! offers so much.  With a myriad of plaids, stripes and geometric prints that incorporate practically every color from our Quilter’s Candy palette, the possibilities of this collection are endless.

Rest In Pieces Collection

Last year’s Halloween collection was well received, so we were determined to do another Halloween group this year!  As many of you know by now, I try to be really versatile in my artwork, so I wanted to do a collection that was different from last year's.  Rest In Pieces has a  rustic feel which is a contrast to last year's All Hallows Bash that was bold in color.

Cornflower Blue

Taking this project on was a bit of a dare; I was challenged to use our solid Cornflower from the Quilter’s Candy collection in a creative yet innovative way. One of my favorite quilting inclinations is to use a touch of applique with every quilt.  How can I design a quilt using our Solid Cornflower and not use the actual flower?  NOT!  Introducing… Cornflower Blue…

Spring Into Bloom

Oh, my, gosh! How I love brights! So, I’ve been carrying around in my head for months this quilt image that is only pieced with bright fabrics with a white-on-white background, and the brights were given ample room so they explode off the white space. I’m so ready for spring and the pick-me-up we get from the sun and beautiful flowers, hence, Spring into Bloom!
