Room with a View

My husband is in Paris this week on business. This morning he sent me this picture of the view from his room.

This evening he sent me this video.

After sunset, every hour on the hour, the Eiffel Tower sparkles.

Isn't it beautiful!

Mrs. McGregor's Garden

In my last post I revealed a sneak peak of my newest design
Mrs. McGregor’s Garden.
Today it’s finished and available on my website!

Designed with Moda’s Fresh Cottons by Fig Tree Quilts. This quilt full of bunnies measures 60” by 71”.

Happy Spring everyone!!

Another Sneak Peek

I'm no good at keeping my new designs to myself ... so once again here's another sneak peek of what's to come. I will be finishing up the binding on this quilt full of bunnies today. Can't wait to have it finished to show you more!

New Designs

My new patterns have been added to my website.
Come by for a visit!

Catch A Falling Star

I designed Catch A Falling Star with Fig Tree's beautiful Whimsy collection. I hope you like the way this design turned out as much as I do -- it is definitely one of my favourites.

I will be adding all of my new patterns to my website this evening and tomorrow.

Lovely Layers and Cotton Garden

Lovely Layers and Cotton Garden were both designed with Moda's Garden Party by Blackbird Designs. The colors of this collection are warm and beautifully coordinated -- so homey and comforting. Easy piecing makes these quilts come together fast, and a Layer Cake allows you to showcase all of the fabrics in the Garden Party collection. Of course fat quarters would work well too!

Sew Pretty In Bloom

I love aprons -- especially quilted ones!

When I saw Verna by Kate Spain for Moda I knew I had to have an apron made from this collection, so I designed Sew Pretty in Bloom. I think it's going to be perfect for Spring.
Another quick-to-finish weekend project!

All of my new patterns will be available on my website by the end of the day tomorrow. Sorry to keep you all waiting!


Here's another of my new designs. This quilt was created with Moda’s new fabric collection called Hunky Dory by Chez Moi.

Tying the Knot is Layer Cake friendly and fun!

Sweet three dimensional ties in each of the four corners frame the easy-pieced center.

This is definitely a weekend project from start to finish!


I have been waiting for a beautiful sunny day to take photos of my newest designs -- and the sun is finally shining!!! This is pattern is called RUFFLES and was designed using Moda's Verna collection by Kate Spain. This fabric is beautiful and brought Spring to my cold part of the world early this year.

This quilt features an easy, pieced center and a fun ruffled binding. The binding is fun to make and I hope you love how pretty it looks!
