Cabin in the Woods
This scrappy style quilt uses the traditional pattern called the log cabin block. I really love how the blues and pinks change from light to dark. It was so much fun using low volume white fabrics to create this child’s quilt. The center animal prints are so cute too! They were individually cut out- each one selected for variation.  I think my favorite block is the mother duck with her little ducklings as it reflects...
Behind the Seams- Cabin in the Garden

This quilt reminds me of a little cabin in the countryside surrounded by the bounty of a diligent hardworking gardener.

The fabric came together by inspiration of the center square. This fabric is from a well know designer called, Kaffe Fassett. He designed the fabric with all the many fruits of summer in mind. I love how

How to Wash a Quilt

Learning how to properly care for your quilt will ensure many years enjoyment. Quilts require lots of time and skill to create. It can take months or even years of practice with trial and error to perfect the skill of quilting. There is also the large investment of all the supplies and notions, like a sewing machine, rulers, patterns, and loads of fabrics and batting. Considering those things the worth of a quilt should be highly valued. Below is all the directions I have curated to ensure your quilt lasts for generations.

Behind the Seams - The Strip Quilts/Children's Collection

The Strip quilts are closely related to "Guatemala Meets America" in their strip size but made using kid prints and a different color scheme.

I wanted to create a quilt that kids would find appealing but that would also go with their nursery or bedroom and still be beautiful for mom. 

 

Behind the Seams of "Guatemala Meets America"

"Guatemala Meets America" was a quilt that took me out of my comfort zone to work with colors I don't normally work with. 

The inspiration for this quilt came as a way to honor the heritage of my Guatemalan neighbors before we moved from Washington to Virginia in August 2020.

I found pictures of the traditional dresses...

Behind the Seams- "The Modern Wedge"
The "Modern Wedge" was designed with the modern style home in mind. This quilt uses soft colors, non-traditional style blocks, straight lines, and a cotton/linen blend of fabrics. 
Behind the Seams- "The Classic"

Before creating "The Classic" quilt, I knew I wanted to offer a traditional style quilt.

While designing it, I knew it had to have a pattern that was typical of quilts 100 years ago, as well as the colors and prints that were common during that time.

This block is an "Irish Chain" block with the center pieces modified just a bit to give the quilt a bit more variation when gazing upon it. 

Behind the Seams of "The Love Birds"
I love making the "Flying Geese" which are the triangles of pinks and magentas with the white or grey background. I love the irony of this block being a bird related block for a quilt that is all about birds.
