Stay at Home and Hop event continues with more links

>> Friday, March 27, 2020

Welcome! Today is the third day of links to be shared for the Stay at Home and Hop event.





Hi to all of the new visitors to the blog! Please take a moment to look around.
I design quilt patterns which are mostly pieced and require no templates or special tools. You can start on any pattern as soon as you get it ;) 

My style is bright and happy! 
My inspiration comes from traditional designs, nature and my love of colour.

I've been blogging since 2009 so there is a lot to look at here!

I also have free patterns that are only available to my newsletter subscribers :)

I joined the hop to share that I have 3 new patterns that were designed for 3 new fabric lines being released this Spring. Here's one of them:


Amazing Rows is a large lap/twin size quilt. It was inspired by the fabric it was designed for: Honeybee by Rae Ritchie. This Dear Stella fabric is available in April - you can see it here. The design is based off the traditional garden maze quilt pattern and looks like honeycomb, don't you think? This quilt was actually made up in the fabric by Petra Heinold for Timeless Treasures. She's on instagram as @quiltbrain.  You can see her quilt on instagram - here's a link to some photos with the hashtag #amazingrowsquiltpattern


Thanks for visiting today!

Here is today's list of designers to visit. There will be one more list next Tuesday. 
 Take your time and look around.

This quilt was fun to design - a quilt for llamas! Dropping In is a variation on a quarter log cabin and the construction lends to the fabric making letter Ls all the way down. L for llama?! Yep. Sometimes inspiration is my imagination playing with the fabric. The fabric line is called No Cause for A-llama by Dear Stella Designs and is available in May. See the llama fabric better here.

The Sunbeams pattern was designed for the fabric line Here Comes the Sun by Clara Jean for Dear Stella. The fabric comes out in April - take a closer look here at the cute prints! The name of the fabric inspired the design of the quilt. I think the placement of the light fabric looks like sunbeams coming through a window, don't you?

At times like these we find comfort in our craft. I've been hanging out more than usual with other quilt professionals online who are eager to contribute comfort to the quilting community. We also want you to remember who we are and find new designers and patterns while you are staying home. Because you ARE staying home, right?!

Sew we came up with a virtual hop and you're invited!


Come join the fun and virtually hop on over to some of my favorite friends in the quilting industry!!

Starting on Saturday, March 21st, I’ll invite you to explore the newest offerings, patterns and notions from my fellow colleagues. You’ll meet new pattern designers, explore new quilting websites, and perhaps make a purchase or two along the way. All of them have something unique to offer to you – our virtual shop hoppers !

With new and exciting sites to explore throughout the week, we hope you find some joy in your day to day new normal.  I hope you’ll be happy you took some time and virtually hopped and shopped with all of our new friends!
