One Hour Table Runner

Laura S. sent these great photos in of the One Hour Table Runner she made! She said: “This was my first attempt at anything like this, but I enjoyed using the pattern I found, and thought I would share my finished project. I have primarily sew garments before this, so this was very different than anything I have ever done.”

And may I say, great job Laura! It’s so fun to see what is made with my patterns. This one came from a period of collaboration between Sheila Sinclair Snyder and myself. We were trying to come up with fun, easy, quick patterns that had a bold and dramatic impact. So thanks for sending these Laura!

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! And if you want to send in photos of a quilt you’ve made from one of my patterns, please do! I will (of course) brag about it in some fashion on my website!

Happy quilting!

Dot to Dot Apron

Now available on

OK, so it took me a couple years to get this written up and listed on Craftsy, com, but better late than never, right? What on earth have I been doing all this time? I know that’s what you’re thinking…

The Dot to Dot Apron pattern is available for $5.00 as a downloadable pattern. So you can start sewing right this very minute! It’s a very cute, scrappy-attitude kind of apron. I made two, the one you see in the picture and another one in red and tan, and both turned out really fun. Does it make you happier when you are making chocolate chip cookies…..well, that’s for you to determine!

The original pattern was featured in Generation Q Magazine, Spring 2013 issue.

Happy quilting!
