Foundation Fabric Blog Tour

I have been on a color wheel kick lately, making a variety of them from my Fractured Color Wheel pattern. When I was asked to make something with the brand new Foundation fabric line, I knew a color wheel would look amazing in these fabrics.

A combination of geometric designs and every rainbow-colored hue, this fabric could not have been more perfect to create my color wheel.

And now for my project!

You know how sometimes you’re walking down unused railroad tracks and you spy a rusty pile of metal wire and you think to yourself, “if only I had a rainbow-colored pillow to rest my head for a minute while I sit here in the sun?”

Then you’re not alone! I had the same exact thought while carrying this pillow down the unused railroad tracks in my neighborhood! Check it out:

If you follow along with me on Instagram, then you’ll know that machine sewing isn’t exactly my forte or my love.  But look what I did…I added a zipper to my pillow cover! This is only the second zipper I have ever sewed…ever…so this is kind of a big deal for me!

The teal and lime green are two of my favorite colors/prints from this line and so I wanted to use both of them in my project!

Here’s a close-up of the embroidered center of my color wheel. It doesn’t get better than beaded triangles!

And if you’re curious what it looked like pre-pillowed and pre-embroidered, check this out:

I just love a good color wheel!

Feathers and Flamingos

I’m so excited to share my latest digital patterns with you!

You may have seen me working on several geometric-themed hoops if you follow along on Instagram, namely a Flamingo and several versions of feathers. There was a reason for that…and it is because I have had new patterns in the works!

First off is this fancy Geometric Flamingo:

The pattern includes instructions for both an embroidery-only version (like the top picture) and an appliqué version (like the bottom version).

Next up is  Geometric Feathers:

There are three versions of feathers included in this pattern: a beginner version, an intermediate version and an advanced version. It also includes an embroidery-only version and instructions for all of these as well.

I’m teaching several classes at Quilt Con in Pasadena this month and two of the classes are all about creating a geometric abstraction. These patterns are partly for those who have signed up for the class and have requested ideas on what to make (!) and partly because I love geometric anything and have been having a lot of fun with my feathered theme!

I can’t wait to see what you create with your patterns!

Happy stitching!

Winter Bouquet, a wildboho embroidery pattern

I am excited to introduce you to my very first, limited edition, seasonal embroidery pattern, Winter Bouquet. It is available for instant download in my Etsy Shop and is available until March 31st. On April 1, a Spring pattern will be released.


With this pattern, you can follow the color chart and stitch guide to embroider a project that looks just like this example:


Or you can use the pattern to create a project with your own color choices for a completely different look!

If you stitch this pattern, be sure to tag any pictures you post with #wildbohopatterns so that I can see how you worked up your own Winter Bouquet!
