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.
Last week I decided to make the Thanksgiving tablerunner from the Festive Runners pattern. I was trying to decide which set of fabrics to use.
Of course, now we are in October I am thinking of Christmas. The way this year has sped by, Christmas will have come and gone before I can blink an eye so today I figured I'd better get started on some Christmas sewing. Well, I cannot exactly show you what I'm sewing today otherwise someone I'm sewing for will see, but I can show you the Christmas patterns that I converted to downloads today.
Christmas is just around the corner and Fall is close for those in the Northern hemisphere so Anita's pattern Angels or Angles is a really good choice for everyone. It is all patchwork triangles that can be made into a scrappy fall quilt...
