You can only imagine how thrilled I was when I discovered one of my applique patterns on the cover of Clotilde's Catalog for their February 2011 issue. I almost feel famous <grin> Today I discovered my "Array of Color" applique pattern featured on Clotilde's website and on their catalog cover.

Comfort Quilts

When I first started quilting, I made quilts for all my children. They got quilts for their cribs when they were young. Then as they grew up I made quilts for their beds. As new quilts replaced older ones, the older ones were then handed on to others.

The Stitching.

One of the things I love about quilting is the actual stitching or quilting used to enhanced the design. Not everyone enjoys this process, but I certainly do. Using the sewing machine and various stitches (I have two favorite), I add coloring through thread work and extra detail with quilting stitches.

Free Online Quilting Class

A lot of quilters ask "how do you take an online quilting class?". Everyone seems very interested and eager to try so I decided to make it easy for quilters and sewers to learn by writing a short class for newcomers to experience the concept of online quilt learning. Instead of just a question and answer page, I wanted a hands on experience and so the book cover with applique flowers was born. It is a wonderful creative idea for a gift with your personal touch.

An In Depth Look at "A Freshness of Spring" - part 1

One of my projects last year was to recreate any one of my quilt pattern designs. My choice was "A Freshness of Spring".

This quilt was born in 2006. It was created in shades of blue for the background and daisies of white with yellow centers. Today I have remade it, creating a more scenic view using background shades of green, purple and blue.

Catching up with Quilting

During the Christmas/New Year period, I like to catch up on some unfinished work or make a start on a new project - time permitting of course. It is not always possible, but this past season I did achieve more than expected. I remade one of my patterns in new colors, I quilted another which had been waiting for over a year to be quilted and I finally wrote up and made a new sample for my Bargello in Summer pattern.
