A Little Look

You haven't heard from me for a little while. I’ve been busy designing more new patterns with some of the beautiful Moda fabric that was shown at Spring Market. This design in the works is made with Simple Abundance by Bonnie and Camille.
This collection is so sweet!

Usually when I design I know exactly what I am making because I have drawn it out on paper first. But sometimes -- like with this collection -- I design as I go. I really do like to work this way, letting the fabric inspire me.

As you can see there is a lot of appliqué in my latest patterns. I have a tutorial on appliqué on a link on the side bar of this blog. Come see how I make appliqué easy and fun!

A Baby Quilt

... And my new Nap Time baby quilt makes seven new designs.
I really hope you like them!
All of my new patterns will be available on my website this weekend.

Nap Time

Icing On The Cake

I fell in love with this new
collection from Moda. It's called
Glace by Three Sisters.

I had to stop myself -- I could have
designed quilts forever with this fabric!

My new pattern is called

Icing on the Cake

Daisy Roll and Sugar Drops

Here are two more of my new patterns. The first is

Daisy Roll

Sugar Drops

Ocean View

This little quilt is called Ocean View and it finishes 41" square. It would make a perfect summer table cover or wall hanging. I love it and I hope you do too.
Thank you for coming by to have a look at my new patterns.
I still have four more to show you so I hope you will come back tomorrow.

Butterfly Bliss

Butterfly Bliss is another one of my new patterns. This quilt was designed with a Moda Layer Cake. Forty 10" squares and very simple appliqué shapes make this butterfly quilt come together fast!

I will have more new designs to show you before the end of the day.

Sew Pretty!

They’re done! They’re done! I am so happy that all my new designs are completely finished, finally! It is such a long process but I do enjoy my job more than I can say. This is such a great feeling to have them all ready to show you. Over the next couple of days I will be posting lots of photos of them, and before the end of next weekend they will all be available on my website.

This is the first of seven new patterns. It's a sweet quilted apron called "Sew Pretty" and was designed using a Moda Charm pack.
Here is a close up photo of the little bunny and buttons that dress up this quilted apron.

There is much more to come, so I hope you will come back for another visit over the next couple of days!

I'm Baking Again!

Wow! I haven’t posted for two weeks! Time sure does fly when you’re designing, piecing, quilting … well, actually sending them out to be quilted in a big hurry (thanks Barb and Jan), binding, photographing and writing patterns for seven new quilt designs. Busy, busy but loving it!! They are almost done and ready for me to show you -- I can't wait! But for today I am taking some time away from all this to design something for Moda's Bake Shop with this BEAUTIFUL Moda collection by Three Sisters called Aster Manor. I think this collection is due out in September.

I was visiting Moda's website today and found this great behind-the-scenes video of how Moda's fabrics are produced. If you have not seen it you should visit their site. Just click on the flower below (I found this flower on Moda's website ... so sweet) and it will take you there.

I’ll be back soon with lots of pictures of my new designs.
