Shimmering Tulips

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, […]

A new Bag?

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 […]

The Tulips Are Here!

It’s finally finished! The pattern for the tulip quilt is done, now on to the next project-a dearly loved tree. This quilt has been floating around my head since I received a seed catalog in August. It featured a new tulip variety called El Nino and I fell in love! I can’t plant anything at […]

My Favourite Birch Updated

The second (re)design of an old favorite for Northcott, featuring the “Shimmer” fabrics- The Mineral collection was just what I wanted for the tree! I won’t have to hand colour again for awhile. The last design for Northcott¬† is an all new one and as soon as it’s ready I will post it, hopefully in […]

Curtain Call

Just published/posted the first of the new Northcott Fabric patterns. I have taken an old favorite (The Curtsey), enlarged the design and added more detail and colour. I think I like her better bigger, and the “Shimmer” fabrics really make her shine!

Table Runner Class

Anyone up for a quick lesson on using Paintstiks? I am teaching a table runner class Wednesday November 6, 10-2 at The Quilting Quarters in Almonte. It’s a quick, fun project and you can choose between a pretty summer fern or festive holly.                         […]

Quilt Market 2013

Today Northcott Fabrics published some pictures from market. What a beautiful set up-maybe I will get there for the spring show (it’s important to have goals!). I had to grab the photos showing my designs and I have to thank them again for giving me the opportunity to do some designing for them. The […]

New month, New news…

It’s been one month since I started on this grand adventure and what a ride it has been! The website is slowly getting to what I had hoped it would look like, I have a FB page and am starting to see activity on my pattern and workshops. Almonte Print Shop has been amazing in […]
