Summer Fun 1


LEVEL – Beginner.

SIZE – 60″ x 71″

Summer Fun 2

This is truly a beginners project using one easy block, to produce this wall or throw quilt.

Different Kaffe prints in the sample quilts here make it sizzle and putting it “On Point” just adds more interest.
Both the focus and background blocks start with 10″ squares making an efficient use of fabric.

Two versions of this quilt are included in the pattern.

I would love to see different versions of this quilt-perhaps without using Kaffe fabrics or black and white as the background squares.

Email me your version.

Summer Fun 3

I have used an extra wide binding for this quilt with a narrow false border just inside the binding.

Full instructions with diagrams included if you have not done this before.

Price $10.00


LEVEL Intermediate.

SIZE 15″ Wide, 13″ High, 5″ Deep.

These tote bags are made with black and white fabric (11 Jelly rolls)
The predominantly black fabric bag has white binding and white flowers with black centers and the predominantly white fabric bag has black binding and black flowers with white centers.

I have included the different flower templates in the pattern but you could choose to find flowers in fabric that you wish to applique instead.

This tote bag is fun and easy to make and makes a great change from making quilts and will ‘WOW’ your friends when they see it on your shoulder.

These bags make great gifts for special people!

This is a panel that lends itself to practice your free motion quilting skills and patterns whether you are a relative beginner or have some prior experience.

I sandwiched the panel using two layers of batting. This allows the areas that you do not free motion quilt to puff up and give your flower more dimension. I used the temporary spray adhesive. Having no safety pins in the work is a bonus!

I then chose three colours or shades of embroidery thread to quilt the panel. The panel changes colour or shades as you work your way out to the edges. One of your threads could be your bobbin thread throughout the project.

I simply outlined the petals and echoed that outline on the INSIDE of each petal. I made the echo wider as I got out to the larger petals.

On the blue/purple panel, called AURORA, I simply played with different feathers or feather related patterns in each petal.

On the pink panel, called ROSE, I played with different patterns, sometimes splitting the petal down the middle with a vein and doing a different pattern in each half.

The third panel for sale is unquilted and is called, OPAL.

If you look at my quilted panels you will find that they are far from perfect but I thoroughly enjoyed quilting both and found that having the small areas to quilt simply liberated my pattern choices.
Just have fun girls and don’t over worry about it. Simply treat it as a practice piece and you will be surprised with the end result.

Each panel comes 44″ wide and is 1 1/4 yds long. Aurora, Rose or Opal.

Price $16.00 a panel and $2.00 shipping.

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!

DSCF1671 - Copy DSCF1683 - Copy - Copy

Level –  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.




LEVEL – Intermediate.

SIZE – Width 15″ Height 13″ Deep 5″.

This is a version of the two tote bags above but instead of using 11 jelly rolls we simply use fabric yardage for the outside of the bag.
This allows us to tailor our bag to our preferences. Example. Oriental fabrics with Coy fish or Cranes around the pocket and on the back for the pizazz. I have used Hawaiian fabric flowers for one bags applique pizazz.

You will be so pleased with this bag you will want to make more of them so it is a great stash burner.

Price $10.00

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.

Hawaiian Antics (251)

DSCF1290 Level- Confident Beginner

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.

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.

238Level – Intermediate

Size – Throw or wall – 58 1/4″ x 70 1/2″

Choose six different Fassett fabrics to make this stunning small version of the Fassett Queen Flurry (237).


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!


Dinky Bags and a Caddy (306)

306Level – Confident Beginner/Intermediate

Three projects from one basic pattern.

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.

Not a Quilt! – A Bag Pattern (303)

303Level – Intermediate

Size –
Large – 22″ wide, 14″ high, 10″ deep
Smaller – 15 1/2″ wide, 12″ high 6″ deep

Both sized bags are pieced first, then sandwiched and quilted. We then make the bags (flat-bottomed) and insert a dowel rod, driftwood, or bamboo handles to complete.

A great project for left over fabrics or if you wish to practice your free motion quilting on a practice piece and turn into a bag!

The larger bag is big enough to hold two quilts for our guild’s show and tell.



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 – Much More Fun #3 (230)

230Level – Intermediate

Size – 46″x53″

The last in the series of three!

I was still playing with four patches made from 3 1/2″ squares and found this layout very pleasing.  It uses three kinds or parts of four patch blocks in this unusual setting.


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!
