I am slowly, but surely filling up our house with quilts.
I grew up in a home with quilts on every bed and every couch. If you came to my house you would see it's my goal to do the same.
My roots are on the plains of northeastern Montana where I grew up on a farm and ranch. Now I live in Bozeman, Montana with my husband, 2 young kids, and dog.
Besides filling my house with quilts and trying to keep up with my kids...
a few of my favorite things are getting outside, growing food in our garden, and discovering books and podcasts I want to recommend to everyone.
I've been designing modern star quilt patterns since 2020 and it brings me joy to see other people bring these patterns to life through their quilts.
In addition to designing quilt patterns, I've also come to love helping fellow quilters be more confident in their quilting skills through sew alongs and workshops.
From modern quilt patterns, to the Quilt Company membership, to Workshops, to the Block of the Month there is something for every quilter.
I have always been drawn to the Lone Star quilt so designing modern star quilt patterns has brought me so much joy.QUILT PATTERNS

I haven't made a quilt with diamonds before so which pattern should I start with?
The Homestead Star quilt is a great pattern to start with. While there is cutting and sewing on a bias, the pieces are larger and it comes together quickly.
Why star quilts?
My love and appreciation for the Lone Star quilt started young. I grew up on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation in northeast Montana so I would see these quilts at star quilt giveaways (usually at basketball tournaments). You can read more about this tradition and my appreciation in these blog posts.
