My New Quilt Pattern: Mountain Top

Mt Top Quilt

This is my new quilt pattern! I call it Mountain Top. It was inspired by the mountains of Oregon that surround me.

I’ve loaded it up to so you can download the pattern immediately and start working on it right away! I love Craftsy for that reason. And, the folks at Craftsy give 100% of the sale of the pattern to the designer; no fees, no hassle. It’s a wonderful thing for them to do (most online services charge the designer a fee) so please support Craftsy whenever possible with purchasing a class, or some fabric, or something. I think they are doing amazing things and I so appreciate what they are doing to promote the small, independent designer like myself.

So if you want to purchase my pattern, it is only $5.00 and you can buy it here. This link will take you to where you can purchase the pattern.

I have other patterns listed at Craftsy as well, so check those out too. You might find just the right one you need to make for yourself, for a gift, or for that special friend.

Thank you for your support!



Fire Hydrants for Local Firehall

The quilt group I am a member of, the Pine Needlers, made these really cute Fire Hydrant quilt blocks for our local Firehall. The pattern can be found on and was designed by MC Simard. The Dalmatian block was the exception….but oh so cute! And of course very appropriate for our Firehall.

Once the ladies turned them in, I pressed and pressed them and then turned them over to my husband who spent HOURS attaching the fabric quilt blocks to pieces of insulation in a very precise way! So these are little pieces of art work. Each block is signed on the back by the quilt artist in our group.

Back in December, we had one finished which we proudly gave to our Fire Chief at our annual holiday community dinner and he hung it up right away in the Firehall. And yesterday we left these outside his office door. Boy is he going to be surprised when he comes to work this week!

So many ways to participate in our communities! So I ask you, what have you done lately for your community? Get involved in one way or another. Even the smallest things matter, and you never know what positive outcome you might create.

Happy quilting!
