My Quilt Patterns




I use to hate hand binding and now I’m obsessed with it! Particularly, the chunky style.

Before I wrote quilt patterns and taught, I sold made to order quilts on Etsy. 😅😭 At once point, I had 40 quilts on order. 😬

I’ve been quilting since 2008 and am self taught (which means I learned the hard way, which also means I have all kinds of tips and tricks)

Within every quilt I make, the colors peach and blush are almost ALWAYS included! I looooovvvee them!

I design modern quilt fabric that you’ll ONLY find at Meander + Make (that’s my fabric shop). I may a bit bias, but it’s both yummy and delicious!

I host quilt alongs several times each year. These are fun, prize filled, community events.

I am pernickety about the way I press fabric and patchwork. So much so that I even annoy myself!

My favorite quilt block is a bear paw block. It’s why I designed my Sugar Bear quilt pattern.

For about 10 years, I only free motion quilted a meander design. I got comfortable! Then a few years ago, I decided I wanted MORE. You can view some of FMQ demos here.

My most popular quilt pattern is A Little Miss Sawtooth quilt. It’s a good teacher if you are brand new to quilting and want to learn all the things.
