Favorite Quilts

I am a prolific quilter, the passion and drive within me hasn't waned over the years & my skills are constantly improving so I can make better quilts. These favorite quilts are skill building quilts that helped me get to where I am today! 

Machine pieced hexagons, one of my 2013 quilts

There are 196 hexagons. Made entirely from scrap fabrics purchased on Craigslist!

Dogs Galore
This quilt contains blocks that use; redwork embroidery, paper piecing, applique, printable fabric and a T-shirt panel. This quilt truly allowed me to try new techniques and challenged me.
It began as a paper pieced dachshund block, my first ever attempt at paper piecing, I loved it so much that I made other blocks and designed the quilt just to use this block:

Broken Herringbone QAYG to explore color
Nine blocks made using a quilt as you go technique that allowed me to back each block in a different color to match their sashing 'bones' on the front of the quilt:

The backing is my favorite, even more scraps!


I then moved more into the arena of paper piecing pattern design:
In 2015 I offered a FREE BOM on my blog for the first time and it was great fun so I've continued
In 2016 I offered the Adventurous Stars FREE BOM:
