About Sarah

Born during the Nixon Administration, Sarah is a dentist married to an at-home dad (AKA artisanal baby steward) in the northeast US. They have a son born in November 2010, a daughter born in February 2013, and a prime number of cats.

In addition to fabric and quilting, Sarah is passionate about Jane Austen, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, bungalow living, movie musicals, the color taupe, and singing in the car.  She is a member of her local quilt guild.

She considers herself fortunate to have a supportive network of good friends, and as her family is remarkably loving and functional, has less to complain about than almost anyone within her acquaintance.

    Found your blog and did a speed read – I’m supposed to be doing taxes – that’s no fun. Very interesting – I plan to go back and spend more time reading – very informative and entertaining !!

    First – congratulations on your newest “project”!! So cute.

    I have visited your site a lot recently. My daughter just married in November. She lives in Germany (and was as avid Buffy fan). I live in North Carolina.

    I knew she wanted a quilt with “daiwabo” taupes. So I started searching for an appropriate pattern. I wanted to include her.

    We each used google image search, and quite independently of each other, zeroed in on your Winding Ways quilt. It is my inspiration. Thank you!! It will be a challenge for me, but since I managed to make a Double Wedding Ring for my other daughter, I feel I can conquer it!!

    I wanted to ask, though, if you just used prints, or did you include some of the Daiwabo yarn dyes??? If so, how did you mix them in.

    Also – your post about the SewEzi table was great for me. I had gotten one but had not put it to much use. I recently used it with other tables to left and in front on my last quilting project and it fine with no insert.

    Anyway, have enjoyed your blog.

    I totally enjoyed your blog!!! Am now obsessing over Disappearing Nine Patch shown in your June, 2010 Helllooo Cleveland post. Is there a pattern for this that you could share? I know D9P, but love the sashing-never saw any with that – really makes it interesting!! (While I don’t physically separate my M&M’s – I DO eat all the orange ones first – they taste the best!!) Thank you!!!
