Home again.

I’m back in LA after a great visit to New Hampshire. It’s always so nice to go back. I grew up there and then moved to LA for college and stayed. I’ve lived in LA for 17 years now. It’s surreal to think I’ve been away almost as long as I lived there. Anyhow – it was a great visit with family and old friends and it was nice to take a break from everything for awhile.

And now I’m diving right back in! A couple of friends having are baby boys. In fact, one was born just yesterday so I have to get cracking!


Just getting started on them but they will be simple and come together quickly. Just need to add some more negative space to this one…

And I dove into some fabrics I haven’t touched in ages with this one! Hi brown. It’s been a while… but their registry was all blues and chocolate so it should work out!


I hope to make a lot of progress on these in the next few days.

    Welcome home. I hope you were able to dodge the weather. Love your boy quilt.

    Really loving that first one! I’ve been making a sample for the shop where I work from a pattern that we sell, and it really has me itching to do something less constrained. And your quilts are driving that feeling home. Beautiful!
