Favorite Things // Creative Collaborations


I have been working hard behind the scenes over the last few weeks, and I’m excited to share soon! But I had to stop and share this photo of my Summer Sampler quilt taken by the talented Ellie Cox (@elliecoxphoto) and styled by one of my favorite people, Evie Coleman, who happens to be mom to Ellie and sister to Laura Gunn (there are a few snippets of Laura’s fabric in that quilt). Small world and so much talent in that family.

I love working with other creatives, and seeing their vision for my own work.

I hope this photo made you smile. I hope you feel peace and love and eat all the food this week of Thanksgiving (if you are celebrating), and even if you aren’t, feelings of peace and eating good food isn’t such a bad way to spend a day.

And I can’t wait to share more next week!

p.s. how is your Summer Sampler coming?

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family, Katie. You’ve given me a great idea–since I live in Maine, USA, I could still EAT BIG on Canada’s Thanksgiving, too–even if ours and theirs are less than 2 months apart :)

      Yes. I definitely approve of that idea. One fall, we were in Niagara Falls (canadian side) and had the most delightful surprise (to us!) thanksgiving dinner.

    Very cool! I’ve printed all the patterns. Maybe next summer. That’s how my sampler is coming!

      This made me smile. I have many a project like this. Next summer sounds like a plan!
