Blocks done for original pattern. Think I wanna make it a bit bigger with a round or two more before I assemble. #menwhoquilt #logcabinquilt
Time to make new friends, & they needed a good forever home right? My new @babylocksewing
Solaris & Acclaim.
I’ve added a few photos with some highlights but oh, machines that really thread themselves & an embroidery machine that scans a drawing & then stitch it out?
Giddy like a fresh box of crayons with a sharpener on the back 🖍.
Went to a HUMONGOUS #quilt
shop today and spent far longer than I probably should have looking around. Picked up a few items, including this pattern by @huntersds
. Not sure when I'll actually start it, but it looks like it will be fun to do

Finally getting the binding on this quilt. I don’t mind the hand sewing...but king-size takes me forever! #menwhoquilt #binding
Working on Curved Log Cabin from my class at Houston Quilt Festival. Loving the Christmas fabric. Now to make more of Block B. #menwhoquilt #logcabinquilt
Named this one "Mad For Plaid" it was a good learning experience. #menwhoquilt
Next up on “A few of my favorite things”, a curated bookshelf of treasured reading.
If you’re not familiar with my love of @quiltfolk
, troll back on my feed & catch up! Outstanding photography & writing about quilters.
Also Zoom in to see just a few amazing books I’m thrilled to own from groundbreaking pioneers.
We may learn from doing, but most importantly we learn & grow from those who pave the way before us.
If you have a quilt book you treasure, won’t you let me know about it in the comments, I’d love to know!
I like that there is one quilt on there from the sketch to the finished product.
My good friends @quiltnow
sent over this giant box of #issue55
that I am featured in. I would love to send a few copies to my friends on ig and see what fabrics you would use to make my #orbiequilt
. If you haven’t had a chance to get your hands on a copy of this great magazine, here is your chance.
All you need to do is:
1. Follow me here on IG (if you already do, thank you! Just tell me you have already)
2. Follow @quiltnow
(I will check)
3. Leave a comment for a second chance and tell me what fabric you would use in your very own #orbiequilt
(which is in this issue and on the cover of my new book, #modernquilting
I’ll randomly pick some winners on Monday the 17th of December.

Improv quilt. Mix of hand-tied and hand-stitched. Super cozy, vintage, modern vibes.
Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God!
The top of the Swirling Branches tree skirt is complete! 🎉🎉 I'm am beyond pleased with this. There's no such thing as imperfections. It's character.
Still have to piece together the back, baste it, and then I can start quilting. I hope my Singer Tradition 2277 is up to the task
Pattern is by RaNae Merrill @ranaequilts

Quilting studio getting into shape. I kicked myself out of the master bedroom to make room. 😎 #menwhoquilt
This past June my cousin, who was battling breast cancer, commissioned me to make 6 quilts for her family for Christmas. Sadly she passed away the end of June. She had planned to pass them out during their family Christmas. That job will now fall to her husband. Today I finished this labor of love and the quilt are now on their trip to Illinois. Besides my day job, this is all I have been doing for the last five plus months. Here are 5 of the six quilts and the label that goes with them. Towards the end, when she was too weak to write, she was able to convey what the quilt labels should say. The quilt labels are her words. #remembrancequilt #quilts #quilting #menwhoquilt #montanaquilter #breastcancerawareness #breastcancersucks #alternateendingquilt
