    Square Off – Pattern Tester 4

    I just love this creation! The diamonds POP out from the darker, solid fabric. Everything about the quilt – From the contrasting colors to those light beautiful fabrics – makes me want to snuggle up to this quilt. I had not seen the fabric used in this quilt before and now I simply want them. …

    French General Love

    My sister has fallen in love with French General. She made the most amazing quilt out of their Rouenneries Deux line. She did not stop there, making a adorable window treatment too. She has made so many beautiful quilts over the years, but this one is my favorit. She had better sleep with one eye …

      Oh, how I love French General. They just create such elegant fabric. I think they are the porsche of quilting fabric. This is an older line from them called Rouenneries Deux. To make this quilt, I used a layered cake  that I bought in Ruidoso, NM, at Martha’s Fabrics. The pattern is so easy. I saw …

    Ragtime Quilt #1

      I made this quilt when I was living in Phoenix about 8 years ago. I spent many months picking out the perfect flannels to go together. If I am right, I bought the majority of the fabrics in this quilt at Zoe’s Truck. (To this day one of the best quilt shops in Phoenix.) …

    Quilt #2

      I thought today would be a great time to send this post out. This is quilt # 2 out of about 20 that I have made over the years. I used a Kaleidoscope pattern. I fell in love instantly with the crazy cat fabric and built the quilt around it. I bought all of the fabrics …
