About Me

Hi. Welcome. I'm Alex - a mom of two little boys and a creative soul who loves to design, quilt, sew, and bake. I also love a good cup of tea. Thanks for stopping by my blog.  This is my happy place where I share whatever creative things I'm most excited about at the time. 

I'm a quilt designer and writer.  You can find my published patterns in Stitch magazine, Quilting Unlimited, and the book Scraps, Inc. published by Lucky Spool.  I am also a licensed designer for Empty Bobbin Sewing Studio.

I'm so excited to share my most recent labor of love, my first book: Improvising Tradition:18 Quilted Projects Using Strips, Slices, and Strata published by Interweave and available for purchase in November 2014.

Hi - just wanted to tell you how much I love your tutorial on the Moda Bake Shop website - the pattern "Pure Baby Boy" - it's just fab! I've made it up quite a few times now, and have just completed one using "Marmalade" mini charms - it looks just gorgeous! Thank you once again for a brilliant tutorial. Sorry for putting a comment here, but I didn't know how else to contact you!! My blog is www.nicolaforemanquilts.com

Hi Alex,

I just discovered your blog - wow! Instead of planting the garden or a host of other things, I've been reading your blog postings from start to finish. Thank you! It was really fun to see how you are evolving as a quilter, especially your machine quilting skills. I'm on the same journey. Your photos are great too. Love this Modern Quilt movement.... Thanks again!!
