New Patterns Coming Soon!

I'm working on lots of new patterns that I'll be posting very soon. Here is a little sneak peek at one ... can't wait to show you more!

Mystery Block of the Month

I am so excited to share with you the news that Kimberly from the Fat Quarter Shop has invited me to design a block for the Fat Quarter Shop 2010 Designer Mystery Block of the Month. This is the third year that I have been asked and I am thrilled to be part of the project once again!

Here is a list of the designers who have created a block for Kimberly’s block of the month:

Anka's Treasures
Bonnie & Camille
Bunny Hill Designs
Fig Tree Quilts
G.E. Designs
Heartspun Quilts
Me and My Sister Designs
Minick and Simpsom
Miss Rosie's Quilt Company
Pieces from my Heart
This & That
... and me, Margot from The Pattern Basket.

We all had the privilege of designing with Kate Spain's beautiful new fabric line, 12 Days of Christmas.

We have been sworn to secrecy so I can't reveal any details, but I can tell you that if you love the Holiday Season and beautiful Moda fabric and the designers listed above, you are going to love this quilt!
Kimberly just posted a little sneak peek of one of the quilt blocks on her blog so I thought it would be okay to repeat it here ... especially since the sneak peek gingerbread house is my block design!

I'm heading over to the
Fat Quarter Shop to sign up.

This one is going to be so much fun!
