Will soon be completing a new pattern for these new wall hangings. Will be for sure ready by local shop in Wichita area, Oct 2-3-4th.
Am reminded of an old hymn I grew up with-helped me name the pattern:
“THE WONDEROUS CROSS”
Praying for peace in remembrance of 9/11.
This fun 45×57 easy-breezy quilt is now available at Picket Fence Quilt Shop, Wichita Kansas.
I love how these zippy little cars turned out! And so easy to applique too.
You really need to stop in and see the focus print fabric in person! Lisa has a brand new bolt waiting for you.
QUILTMAKER JULY/AUG 2015
I’m so very blessed to have FRESH FLEURS in the summer issue of Quiltmaker. This 60×78 quilt is a log cabin block, based on a variation of the KANSAS FORTUNE block published in 100 Blocks Vol 3.
Quiltmaker also presented using this block in four other layouts – so very versatile
I’m really in love with the blue and white model (Tonga Snow Angel batiks by Timeless Treasures) So beautiful! You need to get your own copy of this issue!!!!
Coming by Oct 2 – I’m making a model for Picket Fence Quilt Shop and the Central Kansas Quilt Shop Hop – I love this easy pattern!
“THERE AND BACK AGAIN”
Welcome to all! Once again I’m blessed to have a block in a Quiltmaker 100 Blocks issue, Pg 44. I find this block exciting because it offers so very many different opportunities for different looks with fabric choices. Wow – the possibilities!
I particularly like this black and red sample I made. I named it “Blood Moon” because the early morning after I assembled it, I saw my first actual “blood moon” – quite an amazing sight.
Was recently at Picket Fence Quilts in Wichita, Ks. Lisa, the owner, got out a mirror. I am now so inspired to create a quilt with 4 of these blocks as a center medalion, layout would be on point.
P.S. If you’ve never been on a quilt shop bus tour, put it on your bucket list! Last weekend in April I went with some friends (and new friends) to quilt shops in Kansas, Nebr, Iowa, and Missouri. Had great fun – and oh my – so many beautiful fabrics.

Have gotten on a kick designing with charm squares – something I haven’t gotten into before.
I dove into my scraps and designed this 66×75 lap quilt with 189 charm squares and some fun spring applique. I like!
Blessed Easter to you all……….. as we are reminded of new life, so the colors of spring start popping here on this acre.
Family gathering here was great. Tried something new instead of coloring eggs – we colored butterflies on fabric for either a family quilt or a charity quilt. They are lovely!
Had a FABULOUS time as usual at annual retreat sponsered by Picket Fence Quilts (Wichita)
Here are more of my sampler pattern completed by these lovely “fellow-retreaters”.
This pattern was such a success at a quilt shop in Texas, they are using it for a beginner class.
