A 20th birthday gift for my son's oldest and best friend for his single dorm room. I mean you NEED big floor pillows, right?

I used IKEA decor weight fabric and contrasting zippers. Simple and functional. Stylish too, but boys in college don't think about that, do they???

Also in August: sent off my Open and Shut quilt to the AQS Quilt week- Chattanooga, TN Special Exhibit of the Bad Ass Quilters Society. And my Stitched quilt to AQS Quilt week in DesMoines, IA. My "Fade into Gray"  and "Colorado 4x4" quilts to the Modern Quilt Guild Special Exhibit for the International Quilt Show in Houston. I won't be able to attend Chattanooga or Des Moines, but if ANYONE reads this and goes, please take pictures for me. (Thank you).

Lastly, but by no means the least, a quilt I made for a very dear friend. Some of you have read the post already, but if not, you can see it here.
Twenty Questions

And I received a quilt in return, titled "Costal Oddessy" which I love, thank you Whitney

I also picked up with teaching again, after a bit of a break from traveling and getting children back to school. Come visit me in Boulder at Fabricate if you want to take a class or just say hi.


  1. I hope to make it to Houston and see your quilts in person. The fade to glory is really so special.

  2. It is a beautiful month. And all those shows will be so nice with your quilts in them.

  3. I love your quilts,especially the quilting. The wavy lines are great. How do you get that look? I would love to try it.

  4. Block looks fabuloso! Thank you so much for stitching it together.
    And I love love all your quilts--so inspiring. Have fun teaching!



If you don't speak up, I won't know what's in your mind…….
