FREE PATTERN: Memento…. & etc!

Hello Friends, I hope you are doing well.  Thank you for stopping by again.  It’s been a really happening summer at my end. I am not complaining, and am doing well!  I am working on quite a few things that I can’t quite share in full.  Meanwhile, I haven’t quite been able to take pictures of my recently returned magazine quilts. We have gotten quite a bit of rain in our area — and it’s made taking my usual outdoor photo shoots of my quilts a bit more challenging!  I keep hoping the weather would line up with my schedule!!  So, here are a couple of quick pictures to show you what are now official!

My All In Knots quilt made cover of Fons and Porter’s Easy Quilts Summer 2015 Issue.


My Cozy Town quilt is featured in McCall’s Quilting July/August 2015 Issue – on newsstands right now!



More pictures and details of these quilts are forthcoming – I promise!!

Meanwhile, I feel Christmas in July is in the air!  How about a free-to-use pattern using Hoffman’s Memento Collection – in gold and silver colorways?  The Memento fabrics reflect the traditional and Victorian feel of Christmas — I love, love, love!

FREE PATTERN: Homespun Holidays Throw and Pillows

Good morning, Friends!  I hope you are doing well.  I have to share with you another Christmas Holiday project to give you a head start on your Holiday sewing! :)  This pattern, designed by moi, gives you instructions to make two slightly different versions of the quilt.

The instructions also include bonus pillow projects using leftover fabrics from the quilt.

The fabrics featured are from Quilting Treasures‘ Homespun Holidays collection.  The fabrics have a lovely Nordic feel to them.  Click here to see all the beautiful swatches.  Those Christmas stockings are just too adorable, don’t you think?

The pattern is free, and is downloadable here.

Thanks for popping by.  Have a lovely day!

FREE PATTERN: Holiday Cheer

Hello Friends,

I know it’s a bit early, but it’s never too early to start on Christmas (as they say), right?  My Holiday Cheer pattern is offered as a free downloadable pattern by Quilting Treasures.  It is a prezzie sort of quilt!

The fabrics are light-hearted, and informal, with the prints really bringing out the cheer of Christmas.  The Holiday Cheer fabrics, released by Quilting Treasures, are due at quilt shops shortly.  Click here to download the pattern instructions.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend.  I am still under intense deadline pressure, but I am beginning to see the light at the end of  my “deadline” tunnel.  I will catch up with you next week!
