Hi! I’m AmandaAt the moment, I’m a stay at home mom living in the San Francisco Bay Area who is constantly running after my extremely energetic little 5 year old! (Send help! Hahaha) In addition to sewing, I love to read, be outdoors, and make new friends! 

I started quilting almost 5 years ago and fell for it quickly.  I love how a quilt top gains weight with each step and have often wondered if a quilt would weigh more than the sum of the weight of materials used – if somehow, beyond reason, all the love you put into a quilt adds to its final weight just a bit.

XIO is a pattern I designed while thinking about what it means to trust yourself to shine, the silent strength and gentle grace it sometimes takes to make it through the day; and as a reminder of the hope and solace the rays of dawn can sometimes provide. I hope that each time you look at your version of XIO you are reminded just how brightly your light shines and that you are never fighting alone.

With the release of my first pattern, I look forward to creating quilts that will help me start to tell my story and hope to continue to write patterns that will allow me to connect with, and hopefully inspire, others on their journey as well. Find me on Instagram (@Seamrip_seamstress) and come say hi! I’d love to get to know you!


This pattern will build your inset curve skills, and we have two tutorials to help!
