Inside the Board Bag

As you will have read from my last blog post, I've been updating the board bag and making myself a new tote in new colors. I'm really liking the combination. I do think the Amsterdam Star looks good in just 3 fabrics. What do you think?

Still one of my favorite quilts, Simply Sunflowers was first designed in 2004 and has been a rather popular quilt. What fascinates me the most is that thousands of quilters from around the world have been able to make this quilt too.

The Vineyard - quilt pattern

Finally today I launched my new quilt pattern. It has been waiting to happen for a while but I was somewhat putting it off. My creation, "The Vineyard", a serene and quiet setting where the sun nourishes the grape to produce the most wonderful wine. Ahhhh yes, wine. I'm sipping quietly on a red wine as I type.

Recently Maxine Buisson made my Bargello Blues design and shared a photo with me. Although it has a dash of blue in it, it is made up of a variety of other colors too and turned our really well. Maxine made the larger version and then added to it to make a full sized king quilt.

Today I was looking at my Climbing Clematis quilt. This quilt was originally made for a beginner's class in color wash applique. The background is made up with a color wash of squares and clematis flowers are appliqued on top. It's fun and easy to make.

Moon Lake - applique scene

Posted by Ruth on 11 April 2014 | 0 Comments

Tags: ,

At the beginning of this month, I released my latest quilt pattern called "Moon Lake". It is an applique pattern and from the title I'm sure you can guess that it has a moon and lake in it. The design is all applique, however it didn't start out that way. My first intention was to have a pieced background with flowers around the border, but then I decided I wanted to create a scene so a lake was born along with mountains and a night sky.

Six years ago last September I wrote a blog post on blogspot. I was amazed to find it still there even through I cannot get into the account and have not posted on there for many years. I did manage to copy the post and repost it here on my current blog site. This is the story of how Light Upon the Earth was created.

Easy to make coasters

A couple of weeks ago, I purchased some cookie cutters because I had a project in mind that I wanted to use them for, instead I borrowed them to use as inspiration for quilting designs. The reason I purchased them was to make scented decorations so my house would smell of Christmas.
