WELCOME TO ALL on behalf of myself and QUILTMAKER. I’m honored to share “GALAXY X” with the Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Vol 5, and with all of you. Below is one version of a “GALAXY X” quilt, with the block as is. Use your imagination with other blocks, or sashing for more great patchwork.
My fulltime job has kept me off the radar for about a year, and I’m so thrilled to be back and sharing new patchwork with you!

What a thrill! The journey from a small treasure found at the flea market to the cover of QUILTMAKER, MAY/JUNE 2012. This beauty caught my eye just because I appreciated the piece itself. Then things start to perculate in the mind, doodles on the graph paper, a really cool block (originially for a 100 Blocks entry) then into a really cool quilt. With or without the applique, it’s a good project. I can’t hardly describe the joy of this process of designing.
Wow – timing is everything! Have you noticed how much orange/tangerine is in all the stores these days? TANGERINE TANGO will be available a 2012 Spring Market in Kansas City. Several years ago while traveling to California and back, I collected lots of bright orange prints. Have been doodling ever since to design a nifty scrappy pattern for them. Finally in 2012 it all came together – this so dreamy easy pattern – comes in three sizes, baby Tangerine is a great quick project!
I had fun dreaming up these 4 easy, fat-quarter friendly tablerunners. They look complicated,
but are nothing but snowball blocks and altered flying geese. Yes, really! Am preparing to introduce this new pattern at Spring Market May 2012 in Kansas City.
HELLO ALL! WELCOME ON BEHALF OF MYSELF AND QUILTMAKER MAGAZINE!
I’m so please and honored to share my block with Quiltmaker Magazine and all of you. KANSAS FORTUNE is a great block for your future quilts. Positioning of the block can give you lots of really quite different looks. I’m excited to be working on a pattern that puts KANSAS FORTUNE on point too. Great block for just about any line or style of fabrics imaginable.
Here are two more ideas for you!
