The Star of the Show Has Arrived!

Updated: Feb 3, 2021

This release has been a long time coming. A super long time if you are a 10 year old kid, waiting to release your first quilt pattern.

That's right, I said 10 year old.

During Christmas break of 2018, we were visiting family and I was sitting down to design my latest pattern, Land of the Free. My daughter Mackenzie, who was nine at the time, sat down next to me and asked if she could draw up some designs too. I gave her some papers and we began talking about how I come up with and draw out my design ideas.

In about an hour, Mackenzie had about 4 different quilt ideas. I looked at them all and we decided she should refine and try out one of them. We went to the store and started picking out some fat quarters to use, in turquoise and aqua - her favorites, of course.

Then we went home. Life happened and I got busy. I pushed off helping this quilt come to reality.
