Off to Pittsburgh Quilt Market

May 14, 2014

Hi fellow quilters,

Flying to Pittsburgh today for International Quilt Market.  I’m bringing quilts to display at fabric companies booths and I’m helping my friend, Lisa Amundson, Around the Bobbin, in her booth #950, so please stop by and say hi if you are there.

Here are images of my 3 new patterns available to ship the beginning of June and also images of the quilts that will be displayed in different booths.



QM136 Swirl – $8.50 retail – Strip friendly pattern in 8 sizes runners to queen

I pieced a throw size version in Timeless Treasures Tonga Reef batiks (fabrics shown on bottom right of pattern) which will be in their booth.


QM137 Charm Bracelets – $8.50 retail – Charm pack friendly pattern in 3 sizes: runners & lap/baby/wall

Here’s a quick photo of the sample I made with a charm pack of Moda’s Chance of Flowers collection by Sandy Gervais and quilted by my friend Sandi Moser

QM137 Charm Bracelets Moda Chance of Flowers



QM138 Coin Bracelets – $8.50 retail – layer cake (10″ sqs) & fat quarter friendly, 3 sizes: bedrunner, twin & queen

The twin size version made with one layer cake and yardage of Moda’s Best Day Ever collection by April Rosenthal will be in the Moda / United Notions area.


QM128 Ribbon Rings Topper Maywood Christmas Traditions

Here’s a topper version of my Ribbon Rings QM128 made with Maywood Studio’s Christmas Traditions.  My friend Katie Rubatt pieced and quilted several versions of the topper and a runner.  The pattern includes 6 sizes topper to queen.  I love how the Christmas fabrics make the topper look like a wreath.  Can’t you see this as either a wallhanging for the holidays or a topper on your table with a candle or flower centerpiece?

QM109 Celebration TT Hemingway batiks

Here’s a version of my Celebration QM109 made in Timeless Treasures’  Tonga Hemingway batiks which will be displayed in their booth.

QM125 Belle Kaleidoscope TT Zara

Here’s a queen size version of my Belle Kaleidoscope QM125 made in Timeless Treasures Zara collection.  I pieced the twin size.  Easy quilt to make with 4-patch kaleidoscopes.

OK, gotta run….

Until next time, enjoy all your quilt moments!
