A new Idea

Note to self: I just saw a Lady of the Lake quilt block on another blog. I have tons of half square triangles that are the result of waste triangles....So just how scrappy can I make a Lady of the Lake Quilt and still retain the pattern? Of course it would be a small quilt since most of these units are
1 1/2 - 2 inches at most. Just what I need....Another project!

A Thought

Give me the wind at my back and a star to guide me.
I will not waver from the path before me.
He is my compass and the wind in my sail,
With Him beside me, I cannot fail.

I'm Published!

Well, here I am again ~ This time to pitch the book that I am a contributing author to. This is a first for me. I have had my quilts in the gallery section of a book or two in the past, but I have never actually had a pattern that I designed published in a book. This is very exciting for me! The book, A Baker's Dozen, releases March 2nd. The patterns in it all involve the use of those wonderful pre-cut fabrics...like layer cakes, nickels, dimes, jelly rolls and fat quarters.
Here I am standing in front of my quilt, Emerald Forest, which uses 8 fat quarters and a background fabric. It was a lot of fun to do the quilt, but the nitty-gritty of writing out the actual pattern and figuring the cuts and measurements....not so much! I don't think that I would ever want to do a whole book, unless someone else did the actual paper and pen work....just let me play with my fabric!
