I've been making things as long as I can remember, thanks to my Mom who is a great seamstress! My favorite has been quilting for 25 years now and now that my husband and I are empty nesters I am enjoying the opportunity to expand my expertise and creativity in this art. Pattern writing is a new outlet for me and I am enjoying sharing my creations. I especially love making patterns that are encouraging for beginner quilters - I try to make sure my directions are clear and well illustrated to take the frustration out of quilting and make it a joyful process!
Thanks so much for looking at my patterns!
Are you ready for a short, but fun quilt block of the month? Just 5 classic blocks and finishing instructions make a great quilt that you can have finished before Christmas. Making it in Christmas fabrics is part of the fun, but you can always use your favorite fabrics to make it in any colors you desire. Each month will focus on a different technique.
This is the third block. Schoolgirl's Puzzle. Working with half square triangles can be a bit tricky, but if you are careful your block will be lovely!
