Playing with all these colors-- who knew there were so many greens!?!? Not me🤷🏻‍♀️. But it made me think about how they are all different, yet so similar. And at the end of the day, they're all called green! Which made me think about how ALL the colors are so different -- yet all interconnected.🌈 And then that made me think about people. And how we're all so different and unique within our own categories-- whatever those may be-- and yet all part of this bigger picture, in which we're basically the same. And in the end, the bigger picture only makes sense, and feels balanced, when we're all a part of it being our unique/same selves. So, let's take care of one another. Respect our differences. 🌷And celebrate our sameness. 🙌🏻That's all my thoughts for today. 💕You can thank the color green. 😊💚

Is there a particular quilt that you've made that you feel speaks from your soul? For me it's this #chicopee quilt. The color combinations find their way into my work to this very day, over five years later. It's one of the first quilts I ever made, and will always be one of my favorites! ❤️

I found this great wall in NYC to photograph a quilt on... but I didn't have a quilt with me...so I had to settle for the next best thing. My husband. 🤣🤣🤣

Finished. Gifted. Loved. Before I even had the chance to realize it, I started sewing the #hoopquilt together with no regard to the order in which the background would complement the foreground. After all that!🤦🏻‍♀️ Sometimes done is good enough. And sometimes, you get lucky, and done is great! Loved making this little project with so much love. And I've been told that it is already hanging in its new owner's house and is very much appreciated. Thanks for all of your input, everyone!

Getting ready to use this summery stack of @alisonglass fabric to make a thank you gift for the director of my sons' preschool. All three boys went there at some point in their early years, and I'm feeling grateful for the experience, though it's quite bittersweet to say goodbye to this stage of our lives. ❤️

Talking about Making with Intention and quilting as a form of Meditation on the (recently dusted off) blog today. After worrying for too long about what I need to do next, I've come to realize that as long as I am creating with intent, I am doing what I am supposed to do. Making with Intent connects me to something greater than myself, it's a way to be present, and it allows me to express myself where words might fail me.
Why do you make? Would love to hear your thoughts.

Wishing everyone a beautiful Memorial Day. We are so thankful to all of the men and women who have served in our armed forces to protect our freedom and for all of the sacrifices that have been made so that we can continue to live peacefully at home in our country of abundance and beauty.

My block is up this week in the @quiltersplanner. Are you playing along with @gnomeangel? The entry requirements and prizes have changed - now it’s even easier to play along. Check out the link in her profile for all of the deets! Meanwhile, I’ve decided to test my tutorial out using all of the jewel tones to make a bright an happy summer quilt!

Repetition is a funny thing. Sometimes it can be boring. But sometimes it can be so soothing in its familiarity and predictability. Enjoying this morning of #straightlinequilting

Prepping for a mini-lecture and workshop on improv with intent (my way) with @limqg. For anyone that is feeling nervous about doing it "right", I just want to say before we even start-- the seam ripper is still your friend. Just because it's improv doesn't mean you have to love everything that happens on the first try!
Looking forward to seeing you all on Wednesday!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there, all those who are missing a mom, and all those wishing to be a mom! Sending love and hugs to every one of you! I made this quilt for my own mom this mother’s day, titled A Mother’s Heart is a Garden of Love. Made with outback wife fabric and chambray, it is both cozy and light weight at the same time. I stitched a heart in the bottom corner and quilted it with curved lines to represent a beating heart — the connection between our lives from before we even met. I am grateful to my mom for her eternal love and for showing me how to love so that I can pass that love on to my own boys. Sometimes it takes a quilt to say all that. Happy Mother’s Day @lauragoosie

Like Montell Jordan said, it's Friday night and I feel alright! Especially since I just pre-ordered my copy...okay, copies!!! You can get one, too. Details are on @themqg website. I'm excited to share that Lincoln will be hanging out in the best of company somewhere inside the pages. Have a great weekend, everybody!
