Made with Northcott's Artisan Spirit Expressions collection.

I chose to fussy-cut portions from a panel to piece into the quilt. Most of the remaining panel is used for a colorful binding. The rest of the piecing is made with textured fabrics in beautiful gradations.

There is no complicated sewing; the positioning of color makes the statement! Size, 56" x 70"

Combine traditional piecing and paper piecing with a vibrant panel to quickly tame this "wild" quilt.
Remember my "Let's Sew Happy" applique pattern? Now you can make it without doing the applique!

The Sewing Machine design is featured as a panel in Northcott's "A Stitch In Time 2018" collection.

The pattern includes a large lap quilt - 60" x 74" and a 36" x 51" coordinating wall hanging.
All of my patterns include carefully written, easy-to-make instructions. Many are colorfully illustrated and use clear, thick lines.

THIS IS NEW TO THE SITE --- BUT NOT NEW NEW

I hope the winter is finding you cheerful and not too cold. Last month the Arctic reminded us just how close to it we live. There's a southern side to that too, however. From our house the Arctic and the equator are equally distant. So - maybe some warmer air will find its way here too?? There's always that hope. I'll admit the dry, cloudless, incredibly sunny skies of -20F (-28C and nights much colder) are bracing!

Moving on to the month of Love ... . Happy Valentine's Day to everyone and their "significants!" In a lot of ways we really are one, big, happy - though sometimes a little dysfunctional - family.

I'd recently read that we aren't so much connected to everyone else in the world by six degrees of separation, but in most cases by four, or even three. I just have to say, wow. So please say 'hello' to a friend who knows a friend of mine.

Moving on to the much less separated world of quilting ... . I'm re-arranging the web site a little. Elemental has been added, and there are more new patterns coming soon!

As ever, have a wonderful week, a great weekend, and enjoy your visit here!
