Quilting Away the Day

Getting things wrapped up for the holidays and quilts out the door. Here are a few I’ve worked on recently. I get to see such a wide range of quilt designs…so fun! I never know what my customers will come up with next.

Happy quilting!


Scrapalicious Quilt in McCall’s Quick Quilts

Hand in Hand QuiltScrapalicious Quilt (formerly known as “Hand in Hand”)

Good things do happen at my Scrapalicious class! This quilt was a collaboration with Chris Daniels during one of our classes. Once we decided on the design (and a big thanks to Wanda for helping us do the math!) she pieced it all together. Then I got the opportunity to quilt it up, and we both like it so much I asked Chris if I could submit it to a magazine. Well, the rest is history and here it is in full color in the December/January 2015 issue of McCall’s Quick Quilts.

Once we receive the quilt back from the publisher, the quilt will go home and live with Chris. But next year I plan to teach a class on this one so stay tuned for that! Or if you must get started right now, check out McCall’s website for the pattern.

Subscription issues will begin shipping October 14, 2014. By October 28, 2014, the issue will be available on newsstands, as well as in print or digital download format at QuiltandSewShop.com at the following link: http://www.quiltandsewshop.com/category/quick-quilts


Go Ducks!

This duckish quilt designed and made by Gayle F. is a great example of University of Oregon Duck pride, don’t you think? Just say, “Go Ducks!”

For the quilting I popped in a few O’s here and there in the white spaces. My job is just too much fun sometimes.

Get out and root for you favorite team this Fall. Happy quilting!

Fall is in the Air

This has got to be one of the cutest wall hangings I’ve seen! Shirley D. made this and her applique work is just exquisite. I had a lot of fun putting in quilting here and there. And on the border I designed a fall leaf with swirl design and quilted it in red thread. Who doesn’t like red thread?

Fall is here. Happy quilting!
