Amish style Sunshine and Shadow Quilts



You can do so much with the simple one-patch. I like the action that this color arrangement creates. The actual colors are nicer than they look on my screen, especially the hot pink.

The quilt below has a more classic layout with the squares creating a big diamond shape, and the large blocks in the corners. This quilt is available in my Etsy shop.

New City Lights Quilt Pattern


Here's my newest quilt pattern: City Lights. It's a combination of regular piecing and raw-edge applique. After machine washing and drying it will have a nice chenille style texture. It's easy to make and is a great choice for a beginning quilter. Directions are for a (small) wall quilt and twin size quilt.

New: Fandango Quilt Pattern!


This is one of my all-time favorite quilts. And now I've finished the pattern for it. This quilt is a lot easier than it looks. Fortunately! Can you imagine a busier quilt than this? Eleven pages, instant download, lots of clear hot-to photos. Lots of fun to make. Good winter blizzard project.

Houndstooth Quilt and Pattern


You'll be amazed at how quickly this quilt goes together! See the pattern.




This quilt has both retro and modern style, so I was happy to find this tie-breaker art deco fabric for the backing.
