My first quilting pattern is published!

Picture Purr-fect, a crib-sized beginner quilt that will teach you how to make half and quarter-square triangles and sew on the bias, and also make a lovely on-point baby quilt.

The top goes together very fast, and is fun and easy. More advanced quilters can quickly adapt the piecing techniques to larger quilts.

You can order hard copy or digital editions (or both -  if you order hard copy, the digital edition is FREE) from Magcloud. PDF versions are also available in my Etsy store.


EDIT:: I first made this quilt 13 months ago, and blogged about it here:

I am amused that I said check back in a few weeks and I'll have a pattern... I guess "few" is 57.

CostumeCon 29

I The weekend is loong over after 2 days back at the office. We (well I) had a great time - it was the first convention in years where I went to panels and workshops all day long. I will have some more photos of great costumes to show you, but until then, you'll just have to make do with this awesome hat I purchased in the dealer's room.

Oh, and t his costume that won a bunch of prizes in the Sat.night Masquerade.
Yes, it's a Dalek made from grass skirts, coconuts, leis and a tiki torch.

I really want to see it next to someone wearing a wooden Bender costume :)
