I've been quilting since 2000, and started designing quilt patterns in 2002. My specialty is lighthouse quilt patterns. I'm a former live-aboard boater and have a love for lighthouses as well as quilting. The large collection of my lighthouse photos gave me an inspiration to create quilt patterns from them. These patterns are realistic pictures of the lighthouses. I have 70 patterns available so far.
Also available on my website is a series of mountain patterns and wildflowers.
Thank you God for all the beautiful colors we are blessed to have in our fabrics.
Au Sable Point lighthouse is located in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, on Lake Superior, Michigan.
This is a foundation paper-pieced pattern. The full size pattern is included in this PDF file. It prints out on 11" x 17" paper. If you are printing on 8.5" x 11", you will need to adjust your printer's settings for pages 9-11 to "tile large pages". This setting can be found under "scaling type". Also define the "overlap" to be at least .25". Print the pages at full size. Each of these 3 pages will print out in sections onto 4 different pages. Then you will need to tape them together. The Unit A piece should measure 13.5" wide inside the sewing lines after you have it taped together.
If you prefer to have a full-size printed pattern mailed to you, go to my website to purchase it: http://www.quiltpatternsmore.com
My patterns are realistic pictures of the lighthouses. There are 70 patterns available so far. They each have their own personality and will draw the viewer into the picture.
The fabrics available today for landscapes are awesome and will make these patterns come alive. You can choose fabrics similar to the ones I've used, or you can select your own favorites and make it custom to your tastes.
I hope you enjoy these patterns as much as I have creating them.
