Full Bloom

Here is our new pattern called "Full Bloom" in which we used the Emma line of fabrics from Northcott. It uses two different blocks and the large flowers are done using fusible applique. Even though this design is only a wall hanging size, we think it would be lovely made as a large quilt too. The pattern is available in quilt shops or on our website:

You may have seen this fabric line in one of the latest quilting magazines - it is called Pinfeathers and it is just beautiful! Recently Nellie and I got to design with both it, and another line called Emma - both from Northcott. We can't wait for the fabrics to arrive so we can get sewing!!!

A Needle Pulling Thread

Now that the mail strike is over, our mail is slowly trickling in. So today I was very happy to look in the mailbox to find the summer issue of A Needle Pulling Thread magazine. My

Scrappy Hearts quilt pattern can be found on page 14. For this quilt I used some of my favourite country colours in two alternating blocks with a wide border. In the border I appliqued hearts that I made using crazy quilting. I just love it and hope you will too!! Look for the summer issue in book stores and quilt shops NOW!!!A Needle Pulling Thread's website is:

Woolen Sunflowers

This morning I finished writing the instructions for my Woolen Sunflowers tablerunner that is going to be in the April 2012 issue of Quilts and More by American Patchwork & Quilting. I'm so excited that I am going to have a project in that magazine!!! Can't wait to see it - I'd post pictures but I'm not allowed to until the issue is released!!! I've sent them pictures of a few other projects as well, so hopefully this is just the beginning....
