Need new ideas for 2 1/2" strips?

If you need a new way to use those 2 1/2" strips you have been collecting, you want to give this pattern a try "Flower Boxes". There are multiple layout and border options to make any size quilt you need and this technique is definitely a new one. Include the flowers or not, the inspiration can lead you into a new world of creativity.

I am so excited to finally get another quilt pattern published. It is always a good feeling to get another chalked off the board so I can move onto the next. Of course, by the time I chalk one off, I've usually added at least half a dozen more. Anyway, my latest pattern is called Changing Seasons.

array of colorI've been contemplating about making a new Array of Color. I often make patterns over again especially popular ones. I am thinking that I should make a slight color change as well.

Candy Sweet purse for AmyAny excuse to make something for someone is always high on my list of things to do especially when it comes to Christmas and Birthdays, so knowing my granddaughter Amy loves purses, I just had to make her one this Christmas. I used my Candy Sweet Purse Pattern to create a new style design just for her. The original pattern has two applique designs that can be used - or you can use a favorite fabric in the panel inside - but I chose to create my own fabric and add some additional touches.
