After trying out another platform for a while, I have made the decision to move back to wordpress. It’s much easier to post and manage comments, so I will be gradually shifting things back over here again. I may repost a few things so be ready for an onslaught of updates!
I’ve been building a website for my design portfolio and I decided that while I was at it, I would make one for my crafts/sewing too. You can still read my blog here, but my blog is integrated into the site as well as a few other things including a page of finished quilts. I used Squarespace and it was really easy. I whipped this up on Saturday in about 3 hours.

Well, my long, wonderful spring break has come to an end…sigh. If you’ve just recently started reading my blog, don’t think I’m amazing because of how fast I’ve been cranking out quilts. It’s because I literally slept and sewed ALL break. I’ll still be doing quite a bit of sewing because I’m getting ready for the INDIEana Handicraft Exchange in June and just applied for another smaller show in the beginning of May. (Wish me luck!)
I am so excited for the Handicraft show. Look! There I am!
Also, I had a HUGE spike in my views on here and flickr. A friend informed me that Jeni of In Color Order had linked to my banner quilt on her blog. She also linked one of my sewing buddies, elle square. I am honored to be on her blog. I love all of her work.
I am totally eating up all of the love my quilts have been getting. I am so proud of my work and it’s always so nice to know others like it too! I am also really happy to announce that the Best in Show pattern is now available in my shop. If you are in Indianapolis, you can also purchase a paper pattern at Crimson Tate.
Thanks for the love everyone. I’ll try to keep updating often, just maybe with fewer projects now that I’m back to my day job.
