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!
There are so many beautiful panels available, but after a while it gets a little boring just adding plain borders. My solution is this attractive pieced border made of 5 inch pieced blocks. I designed this to fit a panel by Sandy Gervais (Giddy), but it will work with any panel that you can cut down to the appropriate size. The piecing is easier than it looks, but it does require paying attention to the color placement as you sew! Don't worry, if I can get all the pieces in the right place you can, too!
No templates required, fully illustrated with color pictures, and I've even included suggestions for quilting your finished pattern. You can make this quilt easily in an evening and have it finished for a lovely addition to your home or as a special gift.
