About Me

UntitledI’m a 30-something crafter that became addicted to quilting in the Spring of 2010.  I’m divorced and I have three corgi doggies and a greek tortoise.

My first quilt project was a kit I purchased at a craft store on sale for $7. I started it one year and picked it back up five years later determined to finish it. Finish it I did and I was instantly addicted to quilting.

I’ve always been intrigued with quilting ever since I saw my mom put together a quilt block for a church quilt one year.  She also let me sleep under her wedding quilt sometimes and  that was always a special experience since it was usually reserved for times when I was sick and would sleep on the couch.

I’m a serial crafter.  Past crafts I’ve dabbled in:  miniature house painting, knitting, cross stitch, needle punching, latch hooking, and sketching.  I’ve never taken a formal sewing class.  I took my first quilting class in January of 2011.

I love the medium and the finished product is something everyone can love for years to come.

I also dabble in photography, writing, and pattern design.

  1. Hi Katie
    I started to listen to your podcast about 2 weeks ago and I’m on episode 25. Still a long way to go 🙂 I was gladly listening that You guys are coming to New York City in March. If you want to meet up I would be glad to get together. Jean (Quilted Cupcake) was talking about Pearl Soho in her podcast and it just happened that I got a gift certificate for my birthday to shop there. I’ll go and check it out with my friend next week and I think it would be fun to go there together. I’ve been to City Quilter, it’s a really nice shop. So just let me know if you’re interested and you have the dates when you’ll be around, I would love to meet you! I’m so glad that finally I got to see a picture of you 🙂
    Take care and keep on podcasting! 🙂

    • We had to postpone that trip due to changes in both our jobs – but we might look to schedule a NYC trip late 2013 or 2014. When we finally have a chance to schedule a trip I will certainly let you know!

    I found your podcast a couple of months ago and really enjoy it. i started back at podcast #1 and am starting 53 or 54 on my way to work today.

    I am a relatively new quilter- starting my 3rd project and first larger size quilt and am trying to find the long arm quilters information on your blog that you recommended. (I think it was .01 per inch or something like that) I hand quilt the first two but am just not going to be able to do that for the twin size I am working on now.

    Also, I am glad that you review products. I just ordered an accuquilt go set on amazon through your site- Hope it helps in some way. I ordered it based on your comments and the customer service you talked about recently.

    Thanks again- keep it up.

    Hi Katie!

    So glad to have stumbled upon your page.

    I am in my mid-thirties and am married, have a son (7) and a daughter (15) along with our 2 Havanese pups.

    I just started quilting after my husband bought me a Topaz 20 for my Birthday (October)/Christmas present (I make a lot of garments). Since then I have made a 9 patch baby quilt and my most prized possession I just finished a queen sized Double Irish Chain quilt. I have become addicted and actually find quilting to be quite therapeutic.

    I’m looking forward to listening to your podcasts.


    • Welcome April! I know you’re going to enjoy quilting but I hope you’re ready for the addiction that machine embroidery is! I wasn’t prepared. 🙂

  4. Hi Katie

    I just came across your site a few minutes ago and seen the quilt on the embroidery machine, i have been trying to figure out forever how to do that as i have a lot of quilt tops to finish.I got addicted to buying quilt tops on ebay so i have maybe 20 or so, i cant wait to get started and i will let you know how my first comes out -)

    • So excited to hear you’re ready to take the plunge and use your embroidery machine to finish your tops! Please let me know how they turn out, I’d love to see.

  6. Hi Katie. Love your blog and all of the info you share. I too am addicted quilting and I also love my embroidery machine. I purchased the single run designs through your post and I am ready to get started. I love to piece but not crazy to quilt. It just takes practice I guess. I think I am afraid to mess up and have to rip out of my beautiful quilt top. I am going to try first on a baby quilt. Will keep you posted!

    I am so excited to have found your website. I am a 67 and have been quilting for about a year and a half. I am totally addicted to the fun of quilting. I am really interested in the sewing machine mat you are making. Do you ever make them to sell? I would be interested in one for both of my machines and my serger. Thanks for your website.

  8. Hi Katie: Just wondering if you still like your cordless iron. I have a Rowenta and hate it. Too heavy and it leaks. I was looking at an Oliso but too expensive for me. I saw the cordless at Walmart a little more in my price range. Just wondering how the steam setting works? Last time I listened to your iron review you hadn’t tried the steam. Love your podcasts and blogs. You are someone I would love to have as a friend. Your mom must be so proud of you! Take care and thanks, Char S. from Wisconsin.

    I was looking at your blog about the Pfaff power quilter 16 las t fall. I’m hoping to get something like it. How have you enjoyed yours in the meantime. Any problems and good points to think about?

  11. Hey there! I followed you here from Reddit, I fell in love with your hopscotch lane and corgi quilts and couldn’t stop looking at them. I’m so excited to find out you teach classes locally, I’m in Tampa! Do you think you’ll have any more classes coming up this year? I’d love to learn from you!

  12. Hi there love your podcasts subscribed on stitcher Looking for that curling iron do you have a link?

  13. If I don’t use Google or Yahoo email, how do I get in touch with you regarding a tutorial that you posted quite a while ago.

  14. Helen White says:

    Lovely site. My note vanished. Please if possible give fur babies a hug fr me.

  15. Hi Katie. I’ve been listening to your podcasts from the beginning. Appreciate all the time and effort you put into producing your show. I listen while quilting, so it’s like you’re in my sewing room with me keeping me company! Very fun.
    I’m going to be in Tampa mid-November for a work conference and thought I might check out some quilt stores while I’m there. Thought you may have some suggestions. Thanks in advance!
