Florabunda

I love the rich, deep colors found in the Rose Manor Collection.  Reds in shades of wine, with greens of olive and evergreen, complemented by soft cream, antique, mustard and taupe, bring Rose Manor to life!

The Paper Pieced Pin Cushion

I love the Needles and Notions book but couldn't decide what I wanted to make. I love paper piecing but in small amounts and I really didn't want to make a quilt or a wall hanging. I collect pincushions so I decided to make the pincushion block and frame it.

Sew Spooky ~ Pattern Block of the Month

Oh, my, gosh, do I love Halloween!  Connecting Threads carries the best quilt pattern I’ve seen in years for our zany Halloween season.  I absolutely love Sew Spooky from The Quilt Company!  Very cleverly designed, this block of the month pattern pack is hilariously whimsical.  Six patterns in all will make the comical 73" x 61" quilt.

Santa Wall Hanging

The Santa Wall Hanging is an enchanting gallery of those little faces I fell in love with.  I just had to make a little quilt that highlighted the turned up noses and chubby cheeks.  Framed in with a checkerboard border, each grin holds its own allowing them center stage.  Construction is very simple with only squares and rectangles to assemble.  This kit will create a magical experience for children and evoke a bit of joy for all.

Gifts Galore Table Runner

Technicolor Tidings brings us Christmas in full COLOR.  It reminds me of the first time I watched Disney on TV in color (yeah, I just dated myself!).  It was just breathtaking!  Technicolor Tidings is fun, bright and lively so when I saw it for the first time, I saw presents, presents and more presents all wrapped in these lovely hues of pink, green and teal.  Of course, being wrapped in fabric, one MUST have fluffy bows, hence, the bows on the packages.

Nordic Holiday quilt

There are many wonderful things about my job, and one thing that delights me is seeing photos of customer’s quilts using our fabrics or kits. In fact, that’s one of my favorite things about our Quilt With Us community. What really tickles me though is when a customer takes the time to mail a snapshot of a finished quilt with a letter in this age of email and social networking. Like most of us, most of the mail I ...
