Remember last week I mentioned a new pattern? Well, it is here now! Freshly released and a fun make with modern cutting techniques (or traditional if you prefer). My new quilt is called "Woodland Foxes" and is ideal for baby or toodler as you can make it in any size you require with ease - crib, cot, single or lap quilt.

More Ways Than One to Use An Applique Pattern

It suddenly occured to me that my applique flowers can be made in a number of other ways, not just applique so today I wanted to show you how I created a new block from one of my existing flower blocks - actually, I chose my very first flower block in my BOW series, the pansy.

A Flower Garden Quilt

Over the last week, I have been finishing off my "Flower Garden" quilt pattern. Coordinating the fabrics was the most fun and wording it in the pattern rather than referring to color makes it easy for you to pick your own set of fabric colors. Note: To learn more about color choices, I can highly recommend Elizabeth Barton's Color Course - it has a wealth of information and exercises to try.

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.

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.
