Just had to share this amazing quilt from a stained glass quilting class before Christmas-Way to go Carole!
To celebrate the new Northcott line of Shimmer fabric and the fact that they are using one of my designs to help promote it….. I’ve got a couple of kits looking for a home, would you like one?
Finally got the beading done, pictures taken, pattern and diagrams finished. For some reason this one had to sit for awhile. It is another in the Fabulous Flowers series, a series designed to introduce embellishing on small quilt projects. I have lots of students who are curious about yarns and beading on quilts and have […]
Today is the day the latest version of Quilters Newsletter Magazine hits the stands. Northcott has taken out a quarter page spread to promote their new Shimmer fabric line and look what they chose to feature! I will be running a promotion to win the pattern and kit to make the quilt, interested? Details will […]
To anyone who has sent me a note through my contact page in the last little while, I sincerely apologize. The web gremlins got into my account and I ended up with a five year old email and thirty year old address in my settings. I think we’re all fixed up now, please contact me […]
Last fall I designed a nice bright quilt for Northcott featuring a new tulip variety, the “El Nino” (pattern number QQ121 or Northcott PTN1211-10).

I’ve been very quiet the last few weeks working on a bunch of new designs, new patterns and a new-look web site. I think I see the light at the end of the tunnel! The web site has a different look, and now has PayPal (I’m getting better at this technology stuff). I’m still trying […]
Well, the bag is done, now to finish writing the pattern…… That will have to wait until Tuesday because I am working on two designs for some new Northcott fabric due out soon. It looks like rocks and I am having way too much fun playing with it!
The new pattern is finally ready! Featuring the Northcott Shimmer fabrics, this one is a quick, small “arty” quilt to have fun with. There will be a similar one in the Fabulous Flowers series with beads and stuff, but I kind of like it plain too! It measures 14X22″. One design down, four in progress, […]
Shipped out my first orders from market and hoping to get a new “assignment” from Northcott. In the meantime, between making more samples for them, I am working on some smaller flower projects. Today I played with some sunflowers on wool. When it’s -18 Celsius outside (ok, that includes windchill), sunflowers sure help! Needs more […]
