It’s a very blustery, snowy day out there so it’s a great time to get some work done and hide indoors! Some updates for the spring (I know it’s coming!) In addition to paper-based patterns, Annies is now carrying PDF Downloads of a selection of my patterns. Just signed up a new shop, Quilt Shop […]
My Little Contest closes March 16, pass the word…
I have now added a class/workshop page to the web site and have started a new blog section for the Block of the month classes I’m teaching at The Quilting Quarters. Still trying to make sure all the feeds are working right….sigh. Crayoning is so much more fun!

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 […]
