Xmas Gnome #258

DSCF1686 - CopyLevel – Beginner.

Size – 18″ high without the hat kinks!

This pattern was developed after I had seen a picture of a small fabric “Nisse”.

A Nisse is a Scandinavian mythological “fellow” that lives in the barn and looks after the animals, particularly in the cold winter months.

Mine is made around an individual water bottle.

Use up your fabric scraps and batting BUT be careful. If you show them around-

Everyone will want one!


Jelly Roll Tote Bag #257

DSCF1671 - Copy DSCF1683 - Copy - CopyLevel –  Intermediate.

Size – 15″ Wide    13″ High     5″ deep.

This tote bag is made with 11 jelly roll strips for the bag outside and the two quilted pockets.

Raw edge fusible appliques around the bottom of the front pocket makes it so attractive and eye catching.

Two additional inside pockets make it very functional.

The three top tote bags are made with Kaffe Fassett fabrics and appliques and are so bright and cheerful.

Watch out-They are addictive and make great gifts!



Simply Striking #256

256Level – Intermediate.

Size 45″ x 60″.

This is a strip pieced quilt, made with wedge shaped strips made from graduating fabrics. I made it with the Gelato Ombre fabric line by     E E Schenck.

The blocks are 10″ finished and there are 4 different block patterns to choose from.

Use only two of the block patterns or all four to make this visually striking quilt.


Playing in the Japanese Garden #255

255Level – Confident Beginner.

Size – 56″x 67″.

This pieced quilt is only made up of squares and rectangles.

This was made from the Japanese Garden fabric line by E E Schenck but can easily be made with batiks or a different fabric line.

The stacked squares and rectangles at the side gives it an unusual asymmetrical look.


Fractured #254








Fractured #254

This features two quilts .One with a black and one with a white background.

This quilt is made from a graduating fabric jelly roll which gives it beautiful dimension.

I used, Gelato by EE Schenck.

A strip pieced quilt with a modern look due to the Fracture.



Stormy Weather (253)

253253 Level- Intermediate

Size- 51″x60″

This quilt was made with only ONE graduating fabric from the Gelato line by Elite and so all the shades co-ordinate. The centers of all the diamonds are made from one piece of fabric that you make. Strips are then added to two sides of each diamond, in log cabin fashion until you reach the size needed.
I think there is a lot of depth and interest in each block and ALL are different. We use two thin strips of the fabric side by side to form the colored border which changes shades and shines as it goes around the quilt. I also like the quilt turned on it’s side ! What do you think?

Price $11.00

Placemats & Napkins (252)

252252Level – Intermediate

Place Mats: 12 1/2″ x 17 1/2″
Napkins- 17 1/2″ x 17 1/2″

These were made to highlight the beautiful gradations in the Gelato fabrics by Elite.
The appliques on each placemat are made from the same fabric as the placemat so that the colors always coordinate.
You can make a set with all different fabrics as is on the front cover or simply choose one fabric for a set.
There are six different flower appliques included to choose from. A delight to
put on the table and makes a nice change from a quilt to showcase our skills.

Price:  $10.00

Hawaiian Antics (251)

DSCF1290 Level- Confident Beginner

Size- 51″x51″

Because it is assymetrical it looks difficult but is surprisingly easy as it is made up of 12 1/2″ square blocks. This quilt was made to teach at a “Quilting on the Beach” Quilt retreat this year here on the Big Island of Hawaii. The Hawaiian quilting motifs in the setting triangles and corners are included in the pattern.

Price:  $10.00

Ombre Overload (250)

DSCF1328 - CopyLevel – Intermediate

Size 48″x60″

I used six different graduating fabrics from the Gelato line by Elite.
I strip pieced 2 fabrics and the background fabrics together with “gentle” curves( no templates used) to form a strip approximately 7″x21″ (half the width
of the fabric).
I then cut these made fabric strips into 6 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ or 6 1/2″x 12 1/2″ or
6 1/2″ x 18 1/2″ blocks.
All these of course fit together easily to produce a random woven look.
One of the graduating fabrics is used as a border which showcases its change of
shades beautifully as it goes around the quilt.

Such fun to make.

Price:  $10.00

Random 2 (248)

DSCF1335 - CopyLevel – Beginner

the graduating fabrics running around in a border than changes shades

The batiks in this quilt run through four colors that are adjacent to each other on the color wheel.
Mine were purple to red to orange to yellow.
We simply strip piece the batiks and background fabric in different widths. We then make ‘gentle curved cuts vertically to allow us to move some of the strips up and some down to produce interest.

Diamonds in the Rough (244)

Diamonds in the Rough-244Level – Intermediate

Size – 60″ X 70″ Wall or Throw

Wiggles 3 (242)

Wiggles 3-242Level – Beginner

Size – 60″ X 73″ Wall or Throw

The third quilt in this series with a different lay out, made with thirty 2 1/2″ strips. I think the vertical pattern in this series makes a pleasant change from the ‘block’ format.

Wiggles 2 (241)

Wiggles 2-241Level – Beginner

Size – 61″ X 73″ Wall or Throw

The second strip pieced quilt in this series, but made with only thirty 2 1/2″ strips. I used three 2 1/2″ strips from each of ten different Kaffe fabrics. Students have made this quilt with batiks and with veterans red, white and blue and they looked stunning.

Wiggles 1 (240)

Wiggles 1-240Level – Beginner

Size – 66″ X 89″ Twin or Large Throw

This is a strip pieced quilt made with a 40 strip jelly roll. I made it with two 2 1/2″ strips from 15 different Kaffe fabrics. But it would look just as dramatic made with other sets of jelly rolls!

Fassett Queen Flurry (237)

237Level – Intermediate

Size – Queen Bed – 92″ x 103″

Choose eight different Fassett fabrics from light to darker and have an absolutely eye catching quilt.

Once you have cut all your diamonds and distributed the colors evenly, the diamonds and short black sashing strips are sewn into diagonal rows.

The free motion meander quilting can be made easy by tackling the individual diamonds only, e.g., sew all the purple diamonds first with purple thread, then sew all the red individual pieces with red thread, etc.


Disappearing 9-Patch Bed Quilts (233)

233Level – Beginners and up.

Size – Throw, Twin, Queen & King

This is truly a very easy quilt to make and based on a very old pattern.

We start with strip piecing to produce a 9-patch made up of large 8″ squares.

We cut up the 9-patch, shuffle, and re-sew to produce this easy but stunning bed quilt.

Only three fabrics to choose!

Scallop pattern and instructions included should you want the scallop pizazz on the sides.


Stacked on the Side (236)

236Level – Confident Beginner and Up

Size – Throw or Wall – 56″ x 67 1/2″

This is a simple quilt made up of only squares and rectangles.  The “stack” on the side makes it unusual and the Fassett fabrics makes it look stunning.

To “contain” the quilt, I have added a narrow “false” border just before doing the binding.  Quilting suggestions and quilting drawings are included.


236I had to make this quilt in blacks, whites, and greys with a touch of red.  Very smart and perhaps will suit the man in your life!


3 Asian Blocks Plus (235)


3 Hawaiian Blocks Plus (235)


Level – Intermediate

Size – Wall Hanging – 16 1/2″ x 37 1/2″

There are only three 8 1/2″ squares to cut but its fun placing the 8 1/2″ square ruler to allow a bird/fish/flower to fall or grow out of the block.  We simply fuse the extra pieces in place after the quilt top is pieced and then raw edge machine stitch in place when we quilt.

101 – So Easy (231)










Level-Absolute Beginners

Size – Beds
Throw or Twin  66″x86″
Queen              86″x96″
King                 106″x96″

I designed this quilt for beginners who wished to make a bed quilt for their home.

It is simply 8 1/2″ squares with a simple sashing on two sides of each square.  This accomodates the offset look of the quilt and makes it look more difficult that it actually is.  Sewn together in straight rows with two borders to complete.

Easy Easy Easy.

I used Philip Jacobs and Kaffe fabrics for a bright look but ou could use more conservative fabrics for a more subdued offset.


Four Patch – More Fun #2 (229)

229Level – Advanced Beginner/Intermediate

Size – 52″x52″

The second in a series of three quilts!

All the blocks are still simple four patches made from 3 1/2″ strips or squares.  The background is a little large and the layout more interesting but the eight diagonally set blocks are still simply machine blanket stitchd in place!

Level- Piecing-Beginner – plus machine raw edge applique ( the Mc Kenna Ryan method)

Size -48″x58″

This quilt is made up of twenty 8″ finished blocks with sashing in between.

Level – Beginner.

Size -38″x42″

1. Make lots of pyramids – scatter them over your design wall until you are happy with their placement.
