Emery Dress




I wanted to post another one of the samples that I made for Quilt Market — the Emery Dress by Christine Haynes. Lots of people asked about the pattern, so I thought I’d share. It’s now available in a .pdf version as well as a paper pattern. You can add the optional collar, bow at the waist, or longer sleeves. The fit of the dress is perfect and the instructions were easy to follow. It came together very quickly.

This dress above is made from one of my double gauze fabrics with metallic ink from the new Charms collection for Kokka. The double gauze fabric sews really well and makes the dress so comfortable!







My friend Laura made these sweet needle-felted sheep for display in my Quilt Market booth. You can buy your very own sheep in her Etsy shop, Felt Jar!

You can see the sheep fabric colorways below. These are printed on cotton/linen blend fabric and the neutral colorway has gold accents. Again, this is from my Charms collection for Kokka which will be shipping to stores in December or January.



Quilt Market Booth


I’m back at home, but Quilt Market is still going on in Houston. Here’s a photo of my booth. I didn’t get a chance to look at many other booths this time, but you can see a few images over on Instagram. If you’re interested in ordering the Charms collection for your shop, please contact their U.S. distributor Seven Islands Fabric. It should be shipping in December or January, so it will make it to your local quilt shop in just a few months!

And below you can see some of the samples that I made. You can find my Framework collection now at Pink Castle Fabrics and Miss Matatabi.




Introducing Charms, my new fabric collection for Kokka! Another collection with three prints in double gauze cotton and three prints in cotton/linen blend. And a metallic gold colorway!

This collection will debut at Fall Quilt Market in late October and should be shipping to stores shortly thereafter. Contact Seven Islands Fabric for wholesale ordering information in the US. If you’ll be at Market, come visit me in booth #656/756.

Quilt Market Sewing


It’s that time again! I’ve just started sewing samples for Quilt Market. Here are some peeks at my next collection for Kokka. If you own a fabric shop, feel free to email me for more photos or contact Seven Islands Fabric (in the US) or Nunoya (in Europe) to pre-order.

I’ve had some distractions lately:


Don’t worry. No kitty was harmed in the making of this photo! My older daughter wanted to adopt a black cat when she found out that they have a difficult time finding homes due to superstitions. This little guy is named Lionel to go with our dog, Peabo. It’s been over a year since our 17-year-old cat Kiki died and I miss her so much. And you know, I wanted to invite more chaos into my life!
