2024 Quilty Plans

 Hello and Happy New Year!

Since the kids have been back to school I've spent many hours getting ready for quilty things that are happening this year. I thought I would share some of those with you so we can be excited together!

First of all, the upcoming new Felicity pattern is underway! The pattern will be finished soon, the kits are 90% ready, and I've got someone sewing one of the samples for me. I'm shooting for mid-February on that one. The 1930s prints for that are used as the rainbow prints are so dang cute, and it comes in two accent color ways- pink and blue. 

I've ordered a custom grouping of Ruby Star fabrics in a bright, warm rainbow which I plan to sell in different cuts that people can use as they like, and those who purchase the 24 FQs will be able to make this Scrappy Trip quilt with me. No dates on a sew along yet, as some of the fabric here but some is backordered. I'll keep you updated! Hopefully around March. 

I have my eye on a grouping of scrappy pastel ginghams and plaids that I want to use for my Mariposa pattern, which will be getting a reworking this year with expanded instructions. An Easter time project if all goes well!

My kids will have a normal summer since we switched schools and have a traditional schedule now. I won't have any projects at that time, ha! We hope to fit in two big camp trips- one to the beach and one to the mountains. 

I plan to attend Garden of Quilts in Utah this September 11-15. Proposals for classes are still in motion, but I'm submitting some things that I've gotten many requests for, and I'm very excited to do that with you! Here are few sneaky peeks of what I hope to teach there.


It's a wonderful event that I've attended twice before. I plan to stay longer this year and really enjoy the gardens and all of you! This year they will not be providing kits for classes, you can either create your own with the given requirements, or purchase one from the teacher of the class separately. I hope to provide different kinds of kits for each of my classes. 

I know I've had this one on the list forever, and some of you have been waiting and waiting, but by golly I'm going to start the Jumping Jacks quilt for my music room this year. Of course I'll share some tips and tricks along the way. Here is the one I sent to my aunt, which will be very similar to mine. 

Other than that, the camellias and amaryllis are in full glory over here, and the kids are all trying out for the Peter Pan musical and really hoping to get the parts they want! I hope your January is off to a good start wherever you are and whatever you're up to. I appreciate you stopping by today!
