Thank you to Northern California Quilt Council and Southern California Council of Quilt Guilds for each hosting Meet the Teachers events this week. It's a bit like speed dating for quilt teachers. We each have 3 minutes to share about what we teach to guild representatives in attendance. The best way to stay in touch with me and what I'm teaching and creating is to subscribe to my newsletter.

My workshops are a bit of a choose your own adventure and a whole lot of fun! Students are encouraged to play while learning new improv piecing techniques. And I pack in tips and tricks along the way. I have lectures about color, 100 day projects, and improv piecing. I'd love to visit your guild on Zoom or in person.

If you've made it to my website because you're interested in having me teach or lecture for your guild or group, please check out my Teaching Page. You'll find descriptions for all my workshops and lectures and can reach out to me in email to start the conversation so I can answer any questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks for visiting!


Earlier this month I was honored to be one of nine teachers presenting at the Northern California Quilt Council All-Star Review. This is the same organization that hosted the Northern California Meet the Teachers event I presented at last year.

All-Star Review fell the day after I taught in Tehachapi. It was a whirlwind week to go from teaching in the mountains of Southern California to multiple presentations the next day in Northern California. A fun, exciting whirlwind!

I had such a great time at All-Star Review. Each of nine teachers had a presentation space with room for attendees to sit for a demonstration. I shared my Planned Improv: All About Angles technique for seven 13-minute presentations. In case you've never given the same presentation many times in a row, about four presentations in I no longer knew what I'd said or what I hadn't said. It was reminiscent of Back to School night when I was teaching middle school and had to give my teacher spiel six times in a row.

Naturally I started a new project for the demonstration. I chose this beautiful bundle of Meadow from Cherrywood Fabric, plus yardage of Cherrywood Indigo.

The presentation was a chance for guild representatives to get a glimpse of my workshop and get to know my personality and presentation style. There was even time for a little Q&A during the presentation. Here's a peak at one of the units I put together during my demo. I look forward to pulling this project back out and working on it.

I'm currently traveling throughout California (and happy to travel beyond) to lecture and teach 6-hour technique-based workshops on Planned Improv. You can read more about what I have to offer on my Teaching page.

A great big thank you to Mel Beach for taking photos of me during my presentations and to NCQC for organizing this well run event.

On Thursday I shared the launch of my latest pattern, Floating Hexagons. Today I'm sharing the three lovely versions my pattern testers created. Like my Petting Zoo version, Laura also chose to use a colorful palette for her hexagons.

Anja chose this pink and red palette. I love her wishbone quilting in the hexagons!

And I absolutely love the color combo that Mary chose, Kona Berry and Cerise.

Floating Hexagons quilt pattern contains three sizes:

  • Baby: 30 1/2" x 42 1/2"
  • Lap: 45 1/2" x 63 1/2"
  • Throw: 60 1/2" x 84 1/2"

My pattern includes:

  • fabric requirements and cutting instructions in clear charts
  • detailed precision piecing instructions, tested and professionally edited
  • clear diagrams
  • three block sizes
  • a coloring sheet for planning your design
  • quilting ideas
  • instructions for creating binding
  • photos of testers' quilts for inspiration

Thank you Laura, Anja, and Mary!
