City View Quilt Pattern Available as a download

Finally! Ok, so it took me a few years to get this pattern ready for prime time…but here it is! My “CITY VIEW” quilt pattern, which was featured in Generation Q Magazine way back in 2014 (they named it “city scape:), is finally available as a downloadable pattern on my Etsy site.
It’s easy and fun to make, and looks good in a variety of fabrics! Go modern, or traditional, or whatever you like. If you make one, send me photos! I would absolutely love you see what you’ve done.

Block Builder Runner Up from Generation Q Magazine!

This just in from the Generation Q peeps! I’m so excited! Here is what they said about my entry:

In every issue of Generation Q we present you with a new “starter” block in our Block Builder Challenge. And we ask you to take some time to play with the creative side of your brain to “finish” a block concept from that point. In our June-July 2013 issue, we gave you this block to play with:

Our starter block in our Winter 2012 issue.

We had SO MANY great entries that it was hard to pick just the top five.  We managed, though, and  you can see those winners in our just-released June/July 2013 issue.  However, we just had to share these “runners-up” to whet your appetite for more.

Lisa Bee-Wilson of  Towerhouse Quilts, Lowell, Oregon came up with this block. We love the cool, modern palette with the strong graphic. A mix of subtle and strong all wrapped up in one.

Lisa says,  “I call it “Zap!” because it just zapped into my consciousness one afternoon. I think I might even make it into one big quilt….there would be lots of room to play with longarm quilting designs.
