Hello there, {waving enthusiastically!} if you've arrived here you're a smart cookie that scanned the QR code in one of my patterns! You've landed at Craftapalooza Designs and I'm Nic Vaughan.

I've been a quilter for nearly 20 years and pretty much started out hand sewing patchwork. I was never drawn to machine piecing. Don't get me wrong. I'll machine sew finished blocks together often for a quilt top finish (sometimes I'll hand piece the quilt top).

My goal is to entice and inspire as many of you as I can to the joy of hand sewing patchwork. I love the glimmers and dopamine hits that hand sewing patchwork and playing with fabric provide me! So with that in mind, join the waitlist for my next FREE mini series (online) on hand sewing (or hand piecing as some of us call it) patchwork and quilts, coming very soon. JOIN THE WAITLIST
