Teacup Pincushion

I made this teacup pincushion last year from a vintage Fiestaware cup and saucer. It was a fun little project, and now it's featured in Issue 18 of Make Modern Magazine!

Modern Quilt Guild Block of the Month

A quilt block I designed is featured as the Modern Quilt Guild's Block of the Month. You can find the pattern and an article on utilizing foreground/background in quilt design to give your quilts movement for MQG members only,  here .  The block is called "Mod economy square" and it has a ton of versatility!

Quilted Prayer Rug

As part of the  Quilted Prayer Rugs  initiative, I designed and made this small piece, using traditional shapes from Colonial American quilts and Islamic tile to create a prayer rug that's infused with elements of two cultures. It's finished with interlocking diamond-shaped quilting and backed with a linen blend material. The finished piece has been donated to my neighbor's mosque, where it is displayed as a wall hanging.
