Oh, my poor neglected blog! I wish I were here more often to share things with y’all. But, sadly, I am a giant hot mess. Time management and organization are not my strong suits.

But, I did a really cool thing, so I needed to hop on here and share. I recently had one of my quilt designs published in Fons & Porter’s Quilting Quickly!

Available on newsstands now!
Spring Has Sprung

I just got the quilt back from Fons and Porter’s, and before my daughter claims it for her bed, I needed to do my own photo shoot with it so you can see this quilt in all its glory.

My daughter isn’t at all spoiled! ? I would have just died to have her (or any of my kids’ rooms, for that matter) room when I was a little girl.

Also, I would be remiss if I didn’t share this adorable Daisy Chain Sampler I made for her room.

Anyway, the lovely people over at Quilting Quickly have made this video tutorial to help guide you through these quilt blocks, so be sure to check it out (below), and show them some love!

And if you follow along with my quilting adventures regularly, you know that for me no quilt is complete without a custom label block. So why would this quilt be any different?

One of the best things about this quilt is how far a jelly roll can get you! I created this whole quilt, including the label and pieced section of the back with a single jelly roll. That makes this quilt really easy on the pocket book too!

And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for (and likely the reason you’ve stopped by my blog today)…the GIVEAWAY!

That’s right! I have an extra copy of Quilting Quickly, featuring my Spring Has Sprung pattern. And I’m going to sign it and give it away to one lucky reader!
