A slight variation of my Crosses and Crowns design  on Spoonflower.

American/Canadian, could be your neighbor! Married with two grown children and now four grandchildren! Loving being a grandma! I began quilting in the 1990ʼs with scraps of fabric. Then wanting to make personalized family heritage quilts I used my own technique of pounding flowers, adding highlights to the petals and finally, special notes with Pigma pens. In 2010 I expanded my quilting ideas into designing my own fabrics through Spoonflower. Learning to work with my computer, how to create repeats, how to change up colors etc. was challenging and very interesting! When sharing my designs with others I felt the prompting to create a 'collection' with some Christian elements to put into my family quilts. A collection would be required for any fabric company to consider 'printing for quilt shops.' I believed that there would be many quilters interested in tucking scripture into their quilts. My husband and I traveled to the Houston International Quilt Market There were several interested companies - Newcastle Fabrics printed my first collection called Julia's Notes. "In The Beginning Fabrics" produced my second collection called "A Time to Mend" You can see images of the designs in this blog. The "Time To Mend" collection was printed and distributed in the fall of 2015. With a background as a quilter, dabbler in acrylic painting and sketching - fabric design was a new idea for me. And it is a curious journey! I love expressing my faith through words and pictures. A piece in each collection presents 'words that inspire' for quilters to use in their quilts or other sewn items.

  1. Hello Peggy! My name is Jesse Motz. I would love to see your fabric line, and purchase some for an upcoming wedding quilt I have started planning. I’m not sure where to view your fabric or how to purchase. Thanks for sharing with me, and keep on shining for Christ in this world!

    1. Hi Jesse – In the blog posts of 2015 you will see images of “A Time To Mend” collection. The collection with names of Jesus is called “Julia’s Notes” and the earliest blogs contain images of that collection. I have some of it yet available. The newest collection is called “Believe” can be seen on my most recent posts and at ITB Fabrics – this is the company who is having it produced and doing the distributing starting in August! Each piece can be seen at their web site! : > )
      Thank you so much for your interest and encouraging words! I do have some of the Names of Jesus in cream and brown versions. Most of that collection is still available in small amounts by me – I don’t see any availability on-line.
      For “A Time to Mend: last time I checked there was not much available on line – you will want to go there first. I don’t have any of the sewing machine pieces or thimbles in blue. The scripture pieces are now only in golds and grays on cream in my stash. Just ask and I’ll let you know of any others – I do have a bit of most of the pieces but my stash is shrinking! Blessings Jesse!
