As I was taking a closer look at quilt pattern "Blooming Trellis" today, I realized that not everyone would like to make the background pieced trellis. The pattern is detailed with step by step instruction for the creation, but it does take a little time so I wanted to come up with another solution to create the same sort of effect.
Over the past two days I have been reflecting back on 2012 - patterns released, new downloads, online quilt classes and the introduction of charm packs. Today I want to look into our Crystal Ball and take a peak at what is instore for 2013, but first of all I would like to say a great big
Yesterday I mentioned all the new patterns Arbee Designs presented over 2012. Continuing on from that I felt I should mention, we had more than just hardcopy patterns released throughout 2012.

Christmas is right around the corner - in fact exactly 1 month from today. I know there is always those last minute things that need to be done so I wanted to share with you, one of my last minute creations. With dinner parties and Christmas gatherings happening all through December I felt I should dress up my table a little for the occasion.
As I mentioned in my last blog post, I was finishing my new bargello designs over the weekend. Today I'm going to talk about how I quilted them.
This weekend I was busy finishing off my latest pattern "Fractured Seasons". The pattern has two designs so therefore I needed to make two quilts. I enjoyed both equally as much.
I don't often make quilt designs by others, but from time to time I do. Today I'm doing just that. I'm making Trinity Celtic Knot designed by Deborah Cohen. Deborah's version is a scrappy quilt using many fabrics in three color groups.
This week I made a new star runner quilt, a little different than the pattern. Instead I have mixed up the stars and made a scrappy kind of look.
