It was a wonderful refreshing sight when I saw this beautiful quilt arrive in my inbox. Joanne from Armstrong, BC, Canada had recently purchased my pattern "Color Connections" and wanted to share a photo of her finished quilt.
I am so excited to be able to present another quilt in Hoffman Fabrics booth at International Market in Houston this Fall. I used my newest pattern "Reflections" which is a bargello design and used Hoffman's newest batik fabrics. The Hoffman Fabrics were perfect.
Hey, I decided to do a pattern giveaway. I want to give away one of my favorite flower patterns.... the Calla Lily quilt "Light Upon the Earth".
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.
Any 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.
Recently I've been working on my 'new-look' carryall board bag. I made a new front pocket using a different block and some fun modern looking colors.
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.
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.
