Thank you to all who purchased patterns during the Black Friday – Small Business Saturday – Cyber Monday sale. I should have all of the orders out in the next couple of days, and hope you enjoy working on your new projects. I appreciate your support of my small business!

I still have some of these patterns left, and since I’m trying to reduce my inventory of printed patterns (I will continue to offer digital patterns, which you can find on Craftsy or Etsy), I’m going to try something for #Giving Tuesday. READ MORE...

In case you didn’t know, I started quilting as a hobby back in the 1980s. My first quilt was a hand-pieced, hand-quilted quilt-as-you-go log cabin. This was back when we had to weave our own cloth and carve our needles out of animal bones… READ MORE...
