You mean my secret identity?

As many of you that have followed my blog for any length of time are probably aware, I’m a big ole fangirl. I love Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, and Star Trek and all kinds of other awesomely geeky stuff.

It brings me joy. So I quilt it!

My other reality is called Fandom In Stitches.

I talk about FiS all the time on Talk to Me Tuesday, mainly because it’s just so much fun!

Currently, we’re running a block of the month themed around The Hobbit called There and Back Again. I’m working with three other uber-talented designers,  Michelle Thompson, Lilja Björk Sigurdórsdóttir and Schenley Pilgram to bring free Hobbit-themed patterns to our readers once a month for a year, culminating in a quilt layout that will create a 37″ x 37″ quilt.

Aside from our current BOM, we also post all kinds of other fandomy goodness! I thought it would be fun to do a little update on some of my contributions to Fandom In Stitches so you can see what I get up to in my “other” job!

Fandom in Stitches is a huge amount of fun for me, not only because of the obvious appeal of doing anything related to fandom and fun, but because I get to work with almost 20 other talented designers, all sharing their talent for free.
One of the things we all share in is the Request page. This gives the designers the opportunity to see what kind of patterns our readers are looking for.
Many of us use this as inspiration for new patterns!

I also enjoy writing for FiS, and while it’s a challenge to keep up with, it’s well worth the effort when we, the designers, see projects being made from our patterns.

Probably the most fun for me is getting to stretch myself creatively doing what I love best and in a way that is both fun and recognizable to other quilters. Fandom In Stitches, and it’s inspiration, Harry Potter Paper Piecing, have been responsible for turning many non-quilters into serious quilters!

See all our patterns!

I hope you’ll visit FiS and see all the wonderful patterns created by talented designers all over the world!
