4 Year Blogiversary {and a giveaway!!}

It’s hard to believe that it was 4 years ago when I started this blog.  I have gained a lot of new friendships and so much inspiration and knowledge along the way.  In an effort to celebrate this milestone and give back to you all who have given me so much support and love, I have decided to do a little giveaway! I will send one lucky winner all 4 of my paper patterns along with a copy of the book 75 Fun Fat Quarter Quilts that includes more of my designs. It seems that Instagram and other social media outlets have slowed down the quilting blogs, but I’m hoping to revive mine this summer.  Maybe a new quilt along would be fun.  Any special requests or ideas for a quilt along?  For a chance to win the book and patterns, please leave a comment with suggestions for a quilt along or anything else you would like to see here on

To go along with the new look, I have several new patterns available in the shop.  And as a bonus, all three of these come in multiple sizes! To celebrate what felt like a HUGE accomplishment in getting this done, how about a sale!  Use the code “PDFSALE” to receive 20% off all pdf patterns in the shop through Sunday.  Paper patterns for those listed will be available soon. So, what do you think of the new look?  Let me know if there are any issues you have with the new blog design or if there is something
