HELLO, BEAUTIFUL SOUL!
I'm Amy, a passionate maker + content creator who is dedicated to helping women tell their stories through authentic creativity. My focus is on sewing and crochet projects that are un-fussy. There is enough perfection in the world, let's celebrate creating things that are imperfectly bold and beautiful!

I began quilting in 2013 when I was a new mom with postpartum depression. Like so many other women, my creative outlet became a way to regulate and express myself when I felt like I was drowning, and I quickly realized I could create almost anything with a few basic tools and a little imagination. That drive for simplicity followed me as I learned to write patterns and teach others my process.
Though I now create professionally, my brand is rooted in the early days of sewing when I was a young mom with only one ruler and a stack of hand-me-down fabrics. I design patterns and tutorials for people who love bold prints, bright colors, and value authenticity over perfection.
Are you part of a shop, guild, co-op, or other group that would like to have me teach?
I currently offer two one-hour virtual lectures:
1. Scrap Quilting 101: Turn Your Scraps Into Heirlooms
This lecture walks participants through the process of cleaning out their scrap bins, organizing, cutting, and piecing quilts from scraps. I show three different methods in this lecture:
A simple quilt that anyone can make with basic cutting/piecing
A crumb quilt that combines small pieces and charm packs
An orphan block medallion quilt.
This lecture comes with a PDF download of my scrap-quilting cheat sheet and the fabric cutting requirements for the basic quilt. I will use slides to demonstrate the crumb quilting and medallion techniques.
2. Junk Quilting: Using Doilies And Other Vintage Goods In Your Quilts.
This will be a presentation similar to the one you saw in the Quilt2024 class. I will use slides to demonstrate the process. Each participant will receive a PDF download of my Isobel pattern that includes instructions for adding doilies three ways.
