I love everything this gal does! And I can’t wait to get my hands on her latest – due the first week in February. Simple Patchwork is just that – all patchwork and no applique. Put the pedal to the metal and sew to your heart’s content.
Check out what we have to look forward to:
I love minis – and this one is so darn cute, I would love to make a full size quilt out of these babies!
This twist on a log cabin is striking – and the split star is just the icing on the cake!
One big block makes a stunning quilt. It has such a modern feel.
Simple piecing makes quick work of this stunning quilt!
Half-square triangles have never looked so good!
Don’t you love the way this entire quilt is framed in a giant churn dash block???
I love the new digitized panels which doesn’t limit the size of the panel. BUT beds and throws are generally longer than they are wide, so what do you do to turn them into a usable size?
This Villa Rosa Designs pattern “Gathering” provides a striking top and bottom border that highlights the panel without distracting from the panel. This pattern already is in the top 100. More are arriving this month.
What a great class! They could actually go home with a finished top! Why not offer them a deal on the machine quilting, backing and binding as well?
Quilt shops always have to be one holiday ahead of their customers! After all, they have to have time to sew and quilt that project! These patterns by J Michelle Watts Designs may be just the ticket.
A Scrappy Kind of Love includes two size options. The smaller size can be made with 1 1/2″ strips, the larger twin size can be made with 2 1/2″ strips. Alternate cutting instructions for 10″ squares is also provided so this makes a great stash busting quilt!
Cross My Heart also gives two size options:
And then there is my favorite – Have a Heart:
Four of Hearts could be the perfect gift for that family of four!
Pull out your red and blue fabrics and make a display. And remember, some of those Christmas lines can be used year round so add those to the display as well.
Sometimes it is the little things that make me happy – and this one is brilliant!

I can’t wait to teach a bag class – the Clam Up bag would be perfect.
The students can choose their ideal size. Personally, I want a small one that I can take on a plane with needle and threads and my latest applique project! With this zipper pull, I don’t need to worry about anyone confiscating my favorite scissors!
