I’m Rebecca and I help quilters get more “ta da” moments. You know like this one…
You know the feeling… when you’re just so excited to share your latest finish, you make a silly face! Ha!
And obviously… I’m a bit of a #quiltnerd
I’m most known for the colorful and geometric quilts I create. There’s just something about color and fabric that stirs my need to make and create. I love watching color and pattern come together in new and striking ways. Creating with fabric and color is somehow soothing and energizing at the same time.
As we get to know each other, you’ll come to realize that I’m a bit of a Freezer Paper Piecing Evangelist. This technique changed my quilty life for the better and I simply must tell EVERY quilter I meet. You can learn more by reading this tutorial and downloading my free technique guide.
I run Block of the Month programs from my Modern Triangle Quilts book inside my quilt club, Make Modern Triangles. Each year we publish a new design like this one …
This is Solstice, one of our favorites!
And we work on it together inside my Make Modern Triangles Club.
Celebrating each little “ta da” moment along the way!
As a quilter, I’ve been featured in a ton of magazines. American Patchwork & Quilting, Love Patchwork & Quilting, and ModBlock, to name just a few. I’ve collaborated with several textile type companies. Robert Kaufman released my first fabric line, Panache in 2017 and I have a thread collection with Aurifil. I’m also pleased to work and sew with a Janome Sewing Machine.
Though I don’t consider myself to be a “show quilter”, I have been honored with a Second Place Finish in the Minimalist Category at QuiltCon, 2017.
After I get my kids to school, you can find me working to create colorful quilts and engaging products and workshops. A lot of time this work occurs on my laptop but sometimes I get to actually play with the fabric, ha!
When I’m not busy quilting in color, I love spending time with my family, my four kids, and my hubby. I love to watch them play and swim. We also really enjoy family games; Uno is a favorite. We just got back from living in the Netherlands for a year (what a whirlwind!). For an escape from (or reward for) hard work, I love to curl up on the sofa with a good book and an iced espresso or a glass of wine. I have a secret dream of becoming a novelist… someday….
