NEW Paperweights Pattern


This is my newest pattern in The Perpetual Quilter series: "Paperweights." I call it "modern" because the white background gives a light and airy feel. This quilt doesn't have a border, not even a colored binding. The binding is white. Also, many of the fabrics were made since 2000. Scrap quilts are so interesting, don't you think?

Here are some photos of my favorite "paperweights" in this quilt:

Today on My Design Wall


This is my latest quilt top "Diamond Dishes." It's the first time I've used bright orange since the 1960s, I think! I like it with the retro fabrics, and the yellow inner border calms the orange down a bit. 

I think I'll make a pattern for this while I still remember how to make it. 
It has Y-seams, but it's not too tricky. This quilt measures 45" x 58." No foundations.
