• The Early Bird

    The chickens were appliquéd from one piece of muslin with beaks, combs, wattles and feet added. Finding buttons for the eyes was a fun time in the button box. The pattern was published in the Quilter Newsletter, Sept. 1982. It was designed by Faye Anderson and Hank Parker and published by Leman Publishers also 1982. The pattern has been unavailable

  • Red Oriental Quilt

    For several years I've been pairing and matching fabrics with this material trying for the right combination, while looking for a quilt design I could use. The fabric was on the sale shelf and I'd bought lots of it, just knowing that I liked the colors but not having a plan. Finally I found an idea that was so simple, just reverse the blocks

  • Baby's Best Friends Quilt

    I found the most delightful print by Clothworks. It has bright colors with cute little animals. It was the perfect print to make a baby quilt for the next grandchild. I found a kit which included the panel print and bought some extra fabric to go with it. I've added extra borders to make the quilt bigger so the child, a boy, will be able to use

  • Oh Cherry Oh

    A year ago I happened upon a bargain sale of a Jelly Roll and Honey Bun of Moda's Oh Cherry Oh. Since then I've been perusing magazines and pattern books searching for the right idea to use my fabric to make a quilt. After buying a triangular ruler I decided on this pattern. I sewed together the precut strips to make strips measuring 4.5 inches

  • Best Friends

    My friend often gives me a small kit for a gift. it's the best kind of gift ever. First I get to enjoy the fabric, next I have fun making it and last I have a completed beautiful item. I was going to send it back to my friend all finished, but I changed my mind, it's so cute. It's not very big, about 9X12. I'm thinking it would look

  • Recycled linens for the cottage look

    While organizing our old, falling down log cottage I found a pile of sheets and pillow cases that were left over from long, long ago. They were faded and worn but still had a useful purpose, too good to be thrown out. After much thought I struck on the idea of making them into crocheted rag rugs for the bedroom. I've cut them down to 1 inch strips

  • Max and Whiskers Lap sized quilt

    Max and Whiskers was made using two Charm packs and solid fabrics from my stash. I used a pattern called Disappearing Nine Patch. The fun part was getting rid of scraps and creating an interesting border. The oranges and yellows combined with the darks and blacks make it pop.

    I found two cotton hand towels with cute sayings machine embroidered on them at the Cracker Barrel Restaurant. I was sure a unique chocolate quilt could be made using them. And so I began to plan and shop for fabrics to make myself a chocolate quilt.

  • The cutest totes for every season

    A bit of leftover squares and scraps for the lining makes a handy little tote for tons of uses. They make wonderful gift bags, project totes, totes for kids, mom's, and even decorations. Make them with large blocks or small; add a row or two and they're good for carrying magazines or bigger projects. Little girls loves them and so do the bigger
