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). It showcased their new Shimmer fabric and has met with good success. I brought the sample to The Quilting Quarters to show it off before sending away and one of our […]
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, […]
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 […]
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 […]
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!
It’s been a couple of very productive days while I wait for the official photos for the new designs. Got some drafts on paper for a couple of children’s quilts, finished a sample for The Quilting Quarters and got two more designs well on the way.Can’t wait for tomorrow! Sneak peek at the children’s […]
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. […]
Today Northcott Fabrics www.northcott.com 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 […]
