Hot off the Press!!

Here's 2 of my newest patterns!

Just released this morning.


The quilt finishes 54" x 66". The caterpillars are appliqued with Shannon Fabrics "Cuddle" fabric, the eyes are tiny buttons from Hill Creek Designs (the button packs are made and ready to order, from me or hillcreekdesigns.com)

The fabrics are from Clothworks called "Beetle Boy" an older line of fabric. I used "Cuddle" fabric for the back of this quilt which I LOVE !!!

I already have brand new line fabric to make this quilt again. The fabric line for the new quilt is "Bug a Boo" by Adornit. I will show you that when it's done. OK on to my next show and tell....

Welcome Home

This pattern is the first in a series called "Triple Take". Each pattern will have three coordinating quilts.

For this pattern the wall quilt is 48" square, the medium quilt is a table topper, 28" square and the mini quilt is 12" square. Fabric line is from Clothworks called American Valor.

The table topper I designed to double as a huge potholder.

OK let em explain. I discovered this way COOL stuff while at quilt market. It called "Insul-Bright" by The Warm Company. It's a needled insulated lining. It can be used in pot holders, oven mitts, ironing board covers, just tons of stuff. Not only does it reflect heat back to it's source, it also reflects cold too. So you can use this stuff for insulated beach bags, lunch boxes, etc. Pretty cool stuff. Ya'll need to try some.

Now for the mini quilt. The stand is from Ackfeld Manufacturing. You have to check these guys out. Their website is http://www.ackfeldwire.com/. They have some of the coolest metal stands, hangers and hooks just for quilts. This stand has a removable topper (the scroll part) that can switched out with other ones for different season. Totally great stuff!!!

Both quilts were quilted by Brandy, which she is amazing!!! Tell me what you think of the new patterns. Have a fabulous day. Visions of Sugarplums is up next.....


  1. Welcome Home is my favorite, but then I have been going over several patriotic quilts in my mind and it was great to see what you came up with. the caterpillars are too fun! I love the wonky blocks in Garden Critters. Have fun sewing and creating. You are the best!

  2. Love Welcome Home! Garden Critters is way cute too.
