Recently I’ve been participating in the #mysmallworldqal over on instagram. The original pattern is by Jen Kingwell (I worship at her quilty feet) and it’s found in the Spring 2015 issue of Quiltmania. I’ve just finished part 2 and expect to dive into part 3 today. The pattern is written in a fairly inefficient way, […]

New Paper Pieced Pattern: Flying Geese Expansion
I originally designed this pattern to go along with the triangles for arrows expansion pack, and it IS good for that, but it’s good for so many other things I decided not to limit its description as just going with the arrows. You can stick these little blocks together to make straight lines of tiny […]
Conversion Project: X Plus Variable Sizes
The people have spoken – I got a couple of requests for alternate sizes for X Plus blocks, so here you go. I’ve done an additional set of templates for both 3″ and 6″ blocks in the same document for convenience. Here’s the button. Clicky clicky! It’s free!
Conversion Project: Apple Pie Block (free pattern!)

Conversion Project: Caesar’s Crown PDF Pattern Now Available!
I LOVE THIS PATTERN. That is all. I did my mockup with Catnap, obviously because one must. Mom made the tester for me, and she used a bit of Indian Summer and Les Amis. They turned out to go really well together! The original Caesar’s Crown pattern is technically curved around the star in the […]
Free Triangles for Arrows Expansion Pack Now in Shop
Hey y’all. I’d like to think that people really want this, but actually no one’s asked me for it, so why not give it out anyway :p I loved making this triangle section for my low volume arrow quilt, so figured I’d share the template for it, because I’m nice like that. I’m pretty sure […]
