So, the fog hung around for a long time this morning, and gave me the opportunity to do some picture-taking of my last project! It’s still in the “secret sewing” collection, even though it is finished! But here’s a snippet of a shot I took, and with a couple photo-bombing! They seemed to like the action but were a little too shy to get any closer. Hopefully I can share the full quilt with you soon, but in the meantime; shout out to Cynthia Brunz of Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework for the great quilting!
I’m participating in a Blog Hop that is starting today! My friend Lindsay Mayland of Happy Hour Stitches has organized the hop to last just this week and featuring a different designer each day. SO, I wanted to give you a heads-up to check out the other blogs and designers all week long! We have each made a project with a free downloadable pattern Lindsay has available. It will be fun to see everyone’s interpretation and fabric collection, using mini charms! And just as a tease, I’ll start the day off with a cute pick of a three-year-old tucking in her baby!

The “Walled Garden” quilt is one of my favorites! I designed it for my book called “Perfect Fit, Pieced Borders“. Since that release it’s also appeared in a few other places, such as American Patchwork & Quilting (chosen for the COVER!!!)!, “Quilt Lovers Favorites” vol. 11 from Better Homes and Gardens, and “The Big Book of Scrappy Quilts” from Martingale, and then of course it appears regularly on my bed!!
“Walled Garden” is the most frequently chosen classes as I travel to teach and lecture at guilds! I love it too as there are some techniques to teach, and of course who doesn’t LOVE an opportunity to make a scrappy quilt from their stash?
So excited to share with you my latest piece in publication! Quilts and More never disappoints, and once again the Summer 2016 issue is filled with fun projects, including mine (page 39!!)!! I will definitely make this quilt again, as it was so enjoyable to work on, and it is even finished with big-stitch hand quilting. The fabrics are mostly from a collection by designer Violet Craft, with a contrast red-orange by Denise Schmidt. Hope you will love it too!
A New York Minute!
This is my most popular class pattern of all time. Most guilds will choose it because it looks complex, but is simple enough to finish in a day-long class. Originally it was designed as a baby quilt, but I’ve also used it for a throw and a wall hanging. It finishes at 40″ x 50″ and takes mostly 1/4 yard and 1/2 yard cuts of fabric. It really is a fun quilt to sew together, and can easily be that last minute gift you pull from your stash. You can cut and sew it together in 4 hours!
Use the Craftsy icon in the left column to get to my Craftsy Pattern Shop. You will make this quilt over and over! The name says it all, you will finish this one in a New York Minute!
