Two great women were a major influence in my creative life. My Greatgrandmother and my Mother taught me to sew, knit, crochet, and tat. I am the only quilter in my family and am self taught. Over the years I became interested in pattern design and started writing quilt patterns. I now design quilt patterns which I offer to you to enjoy. I love what I am doing and I hope you enjoy my work.View all patterns by designer (19) »
I have designed this easy to piece Jelly roll friendly quilt. This quilt measurements 49" x 60". This quilt uses squares, jelly roll strips and sashing strips.
When I finished designing this quilt I named it Central Park. I had the pleasure of visiting New York this past summer and spent some much needed relaxing moments in Central Park. Looking at this quilt reminded me of the awesome paths and gardens of Central Park.
The pictures with this pattern show 1930's Feedsack fabric but this quilt looks great in any fabric combination. Bright flowers, Baby Fabrics, Calicoes, the possibilities are endless.
This quilt can be made scrappy using your stash of fabric, or can be one line of fabric using 8 to 10 different fabrics looks best. The pictures with this pattern show the same fabrics around the blocks, but it also works to have a scrappy look which uses a variety of fabrics around the same block. This quilt is a perfect lap quilt, or will work wonderfully as a bed throw or on the back of a chair.
