About Me

I am a stay at home mom to two little monsters children.  My husband works as an analyst for the government and enjoys helping me with quilty stuff from time to time.

I've been quilting since 2009.  I started on my mom's old Janome, and then bought a larger Janome MC 6300p to keep up with my sewing.  I learned the very basics of sewing and quilt piecing from my mom, and everything else I've picked up on the internet--via quilt alongs, tutorials, videos, etc.  I <3 the internet.

I love to free motion quilt (FMQ) and quickly become obsessed with the details of a quilt.

I am not obsessed with Doctor Who, or the TARDIS, though it may appear that way sometimes.

Someday I dream of having a long arm machine and making quilting my business.  For now I do occasionally take on commissions--please contact me if you're interested in having a quilt made, or quilting done for you.

    1. I think people find my email address by clicking on my name on the left hand side--but I will add it here as well. All comments are emailed to me, and I reply via email unless someone is a no-reply blogger--which you are, so I hope you come back to read this!

  2. Hi Renee!!
    I would love to pick your brain and get advice on how to make an exploding tardis quilt. I have a friend who has asked me to make a tardis quilt using your pattern for the tardis. I have no experience paper piecing without a pattern but that is what I feel like an exloding tardis needs. Some impressionistic, random looking pieces but I have no idea where to start. Thoughts?comments?guidance?

    Thank you!

    1. This blog post explains how I made it: http://www.quiltsofafeather.com/2014/03/making-of-pandorica-opens.html So I did use a paper piecing pattern for the tardis and then I cut it up into the approximate right shapes and built the rest of the quilt around it. I hope that helps and that you get this response! You are a no-reply blogger, so I was not able to respond to you in an email :-)

  3. I hopped over here from Yvonne's and I'm SO glad I did! Your work is absolutely stunning! And since I see you are holding a little one in your pic above AND you quilt on a domestic machine AND you're a Whovian, I am beyond amazed. Guess I'll just have to stalk--Uh--follow you :)
