Applique in All its Glory

Organic Applique by Kathy Doughty just blew me away. I love to applique but her designs are breathtaking!

Just look at the cover quilt. She has combined a HUGE elongated courthouse steps block with quirky appliques in stunning colors to create a true masterpiece! And the photography is inspired! Don’t you love the paper umbrellas hanging from the ceiling?

Even her more traditional pattern – a vase of flowers – takes on a whole new look with her choice of colors and borders.

Just look at the variety of projects! Paper-piecing, applique, Broderie Perse – Kathy walks you through every technique!

Opening the first page of this book is like the first time you opened that big box of crayons – and never looked back!

A Unicorn Named Nola…

Two new patterns by Laura Heine are due to arrive this month and are sure to be as popular as her other designs.

Nola measures 35 x 47 inches – the perfect size for the center of a baby quilt or the focus of a nursery. But this whimsical unicorn will take center stage wherever she is placed!

Song Bird measures 30 inches square and is stunning on a dark background. I wonder how it would look on a light background??? Maybe you should make both???

Both patterns are due to arrive the middle of this month so place your orders now.

Wool in all its Beauty

Rebekah Smith has designed two wool mats that can add a spark of color to any decor. Folk Hearts has two options – both so charming you will want to make both!

This table runner is stunning in Fall colors but would be gorgeous in Spring colors as well. The shape adds that awe factor and highlights the design as well.

Summer is beginning and is the perfect time for a bit of handwork. Wool is the perfect choice for a take along project!
