I love to quilt, garden and watercolor paint! I take great joy in meeting people at Quilt Market, in workshops, guilds and sharing my design ideas, love of color and techniques with my customers.
Maybe you saw me on HGTV with Alex Anderson, or on PBS with Karen Goodman sharing my designs! With two best selling books and many magazine articles, Bella Nonna's line of patterns continues to sell worldwide. Our Boondoggle Rulers create quick quilts with complex-looking patterns.
Most recently Bella Nonna has partnered with Island Batik fabrics to create an "Island Series" of patterns that reflect the feel of a island paradise!
Come discover the pattern world of Bella Nonna Design Studio!
Our second best-selling book, "FOLLOW the DOTS....to DAZZLING QUILTS" includes this popular art quilt. Guild workshops have produced playful to exotic versions of this pattern. Substitute ric-rac for the silk ribbon, raid your button box for a delightful child's quilt.
Here we used dichroic glass buttons as tactile dots, connected by colorful hand-dyed silk ribbons. The buttons add sparkle and mischievous pleasure reminding us of those dot-to-dot puzzles we did as kids!
Make this easy pattern your own....use up scraps, fat quarter packs and feature one-of-a-kind vintage buttons for a memory quilt.
