Bunting Quilt by Sandra in Brazil!


This beautiful quilt was created by Sandra de Faria from Brazil.  I love how it's light and airy, but has a gentle touch of vibrant colors too. The border makes a stunning frame. Take a look at the lavish quilting too. Nice job Sandra! 

Thank you so much for sharing this photo. We quilters love to see all the different versions of these patterns.  😀

She was inspired by my Bunting quilt pattern.

The Lasagna Quilt!

Turn scraps into a Lasagna quilt, layer by layer. So much fun, it's hard to stop. 
This quilt measures 51" x 67" but its easy to make it any size you like.

New Quilt Pattern: Adirondack

"Adirondack" is a quilt that would be right at home on the porch of a grand old camp in upstate New York. Add a some red and black buffalo plaid, and you can almost smell a wood fire. What a perfect time to be making scrap quilts, staying home in the winter.  :)

This quilt measures 60" wide x 80" long.

No seam-matching. Anywhere.

Happy New Year! 102 Spools in 2020!


Wow, what a year it was! I went through 102 spools of thread! I had the pedal to the metal this year making well over 2,000 face masks (some donated, some for family and friends, and many sold on Etsy).  Demand for masks has slowed down just recently, leaving some time for quilt making. Finally. 

Here's my latest quilt:

"Home Free" measures 60" x 84." Last quilt of 2020.

New Pattern: Meraki


Meraki is a Greek word that refers to the creativity and love that we put into things we make. 
This quilt takes a lot of sewing, but it goes together fast because the method is "liberated" and there's not much measuring required. Scrap quilts are the best, right? Especially when we're sheltering in place.

New Pattern: Town Square!

This quilt has two variations of the log cabin block separated by a nice saw tooth border. A piano key outer border adds a little elbow room for a light and airy vibe. This pattern isn't fussy when it comes to measuring. Gwen Marston's liberated quilting principles apply here.
View the pattern here. Immediate download, no waiting.

Scrap quilts are perfect for this stay-at-home year, aren't they? We quilters are so smart to have stashed away plenty of fabric for a time like this! (I have about 10 years worth!) 

Stay safe out there! xoxo
