Log Cabin Quilting: Creativebug Workshops


I'm so excited about my new Log Cabin Quilting workshops with creativebug! Each week in May, a new hour-long class premieres: Square Within a Square Pillows, Baby Quilt, Modern Crosses Table Runner, and Quartered Log Cabin Tote Bags. Each project includes variations and personalized details to add. I got to share some log cabin quilting history and alternate block settings, and film at some of my favorite fabric stores in Portland, too. I'd love to see what you make!

Easy Embellishment: Interweave Workshop


For my Easy Embellishment class, I shared my favorite techniques for creating unique garments and accessories with simple and pretty embellishments. This class will teach you the basics of choosing different design elements; all about the building blocks of good embellishment design; how to make gorgeous hairclips, fascinators and shoe clips, and much more.
