A little over seven years ago I had a crazy idea. Over the past seven years I’ve sewn hundreds of quilts, published 75 individual patterns, published three books through traditional routes and self-published three more books.
For a little celebration, seven of the most popular Carolina Patchworks patterns will be on sale for $7 each for 7 days.
Emily took a wrong turn on the way downstairs and found herself at the hospital, where they mistook her for a patient and operated on her shoulder. While she’s recuperating, replies may be slower than usual and orders will take a few days longer to ship out. She’ll be back to capacity in a few weeks.
Or in other words: Emily fell. Surgical repair. Shipping and emails slow. Back to normal soon.
Friday 9/19 Update: Orders went out Tuesday and today. I got through some emails but not all. One handed typing is not fun! Thank you for your patience!
Wednesday 9/24: More mail out!
Monday 10/6: Mail went out twice last week and will again today. I’ll be back to the normal shipping schedule by the end of the week.
Emily likes to play with rotary cutters much like Edward Scissorhands likes to play with hedge trimmers. ‘Smithereens’ is what happens when Emily and her rotary cutter meet a roll-up. Much chaos ensues.
Uses one roll-up plus background yardage.

Color Continuum — no. 02 Polychromatic, a new book with five modern polychromatic (rainbows!!) quilt projects is here! All of the projects are precut friendly and would work wonderfully with scraps too.
In quilts, as in life, few things are more important than color. Color evokes a mood, color sets a contrast, color is the spark that can make the everyday — extraordinary. Color Continuum is an exploration of how different approaches to creating a unique palette for a quilt can imbue it with emotion or suggest anything from an everyday scene to a classic painting.
Color Continuum — no. 02 Polychromatic will be available on Amazon and all the international Amazon sites but not for another week or so. I will update with a link here once it works its way through the system.
In no 2. polychromatic, pure white light is split into its intrinsic components: the rainbow. This most elemental of natural phenomena provides, with a basis deep in optics, provides the most fundamental organization of the color spectrum. Yet at the same time its ends are found deep in our collective imagination, evoking a powerful sense of wonder and beauty. It’s no surprise, then, to find that it can be applied in innumerable ways to give the same fantastic charm, simultaneously peaceful and lively, to our creations. This volume explores this idea, imbuing a set of five quilts with every portion of the spectrum short of a pot of gold.
Inspired by our Technicolor Yawn Bedroom.

Angela Walters did the quilting on four of quilts. Amazing work once again!
One more teaser… notice that it was no. 01 and now no. 02? Vague, random Instagram pictures already started because there might just be a no. 03.
But for now, we’ll enjoy another wonderful release that is totally me. More pictures over the next week over on Instagram!
