Hello there, {waving enthusiastically!} if you've arrived here you're a smart cookie that scanned the QR code in one of my pdf's! 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), but handpiecing patchwork is my go-to.

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!
