Iris Hexagon Quilt Block

This quilt block is my first shared work of a Foundation paper Pieced (FPP) Block. FPP allows a lot more flexibility in design, and in this case allows for clean lines that make the design. It’s one of my favorite piecing methods. This pattern has 18 total subunits, that form 6 equilateral triangles, which finally… Continue reading Iris Hexagon Quilt Block

Oak Park Quilt

This Quilt was inspired by a day when I felt so blessed to have a somewhat unexpected visit from my parents and grandma. We toured the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio and drank wine through the afternoon. It was all around an amazing day. One of the rooms in FLW’s home was his children’s… Continue reading Oak Park Quilt

Dizzy Diamonds Quilt

This pattern was inspired by abstract painter Max Bill’s “Six Penetrating Colors” (1966-67), which I found in a book I picked up from the Brown Elephant. Resisting the improvisational impulse other abstractionists like Kandinsky called for, Bill sought a mathematical approach to art based in rhythms, formulae, and variations. Beyond the inspiration for the diamond… Continue reading Dizzy Diamonds Quilt

The Musaica Cowl

The Musaica Cowl is  about honoring the small details that surround us everyday. This cowl is a celebration of a single leaf on my Calathea musaica for a picture. I received a cutting of my friend’s for my birthday and though it’s struggled quite a bit, I have been amazed by its will to live,… Continue reading The Musaica Cowl

The Dioptric Cowl

I recently went on a  much-needed vacation with my partner and family. While on Tybee Island we visited a local lighthouse and saw the incredible innovation that allowed a small light to project almost 20 miles into the open Atlantic. The Fresnel lens, within, bends light with bands of similarly-angled but slowly shifting glass surfaces,… Continue reading The Dioptric Cowl

The ThreeequenSki Cap

Being announced as part of the #ThreeequencyKAL The ThreeequenSki Cap takes the staccato patterning of the Threeequency Pullover and pairs it with the delightful slow fade of Spincycle’s Dyed in the Wool. However, it can be knit with any pairing of two fingering weight yarns and the pattern contains customization instructions for lengths from 9”… Continue reading The ThreeequenSki Cap

The Threeequency Pullover

The Threeequency Pullover is all about repetition and screams “Look at this!” while also making it hard to stare for long. Knit in Brooklyn Tweed’s Peerie, a lofty fingering weight yarn, this pullover blends the lightness of a fingering weight sweater with the warmth of American Merino wool. Its natural ability to bloom after blocking… Continue reading The Threeequency Pullover

The YesSuri Cowl

Utilizing a a technique I call Stranded Marling, the YesSuri Cowl incorporates suri alpaca fiber with some stitches, but not others, resulting in a spray of color that pops with eye-catching texture. Floats of the baby suri on the wrong- side thrum the inside of the cowl with a baby- soft lining that keeps you… Continue reading The YesSuri Cowl

The Sumac Glass Hat

One of my favorite places near my hometown is a Frank Lloyd Wright designed home built for Susan Lawrence Dana, an heiress and feminist socialite who was known for her spooky séances and love of the occult. Her home is one of the best remaining examples of Wright’s prairie style and in this particular home… Continue reading The Sumac Glass Hat
