Hooray!

I’m thrilled to have my quilt Energy Grid published in the May/June 2018 issue of McCall’s Quilting. It was so much fun to make and relatively simple to put together.  It’s a departure from my usual applique and maybe that’s why I had so much fun doing it.   They make it look so lovely with…

Serendipity Finishing Directions

Hi All!  Thick in the midst of Christmas and family birthday festivities, I finally came up for air so I could get the promised patterns out.  There are two here to download.  The little appliques that go in the quarter square triangles of the flying geese units and the Border/Finishing directions.  I hope you all…

Serendipity – Block 6 (Flying Geese block 2)

  Hi everyone. New month…new block. I just love this one. So here it is Serendipity – Geese Block 2. Oh Boy, did I have fun with hand quilting last week!  I felt a physical sense of loss after I was done. Yet also, strangely enough, relief.  It’s always nice when a chore turns out…

Hand Quilting

I’ve been having a blast re-doing the Sycamore Rose Pattern to include directions for Quilt as you Go and Back-basting applique.  I’m learning so much and have been having such fun!  I thought I’d post a little bit of what I’m working on.  This is Sycamore Rose block 7 which I’m in the middle of…

Serendipity Block 4

      Well we’re finally finishing up the corner blocks.  Month 4 is a simple little 9-patch made up of 2.25″ cut squares.  The 9-patch as a whole should measure 5.25″ after it’s appliqued to the center square.  Why appliqued?  Because to finish the square properly by piecing, the sashing squares would need to…

Serendipity Block 3

Ack! I’m a day late and dollar short, but finally able to post Serendipity – Corner Block 3. Off to bed for now.
