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!
I love those beautiful printed panels, but some of them are just too narrow to simply add borders and make a nice sized quilt. I came up with this design to solve that problem! Simple pinwheel flowers make cute borders to fill out the sides, then simply add plain borders to make a good sized baby quilt, lap quilt, or wall hanging. In fact, these SpinFlower strips are so cute you can use them to make a simple quilt on their own by adding strips of a beautiful print that you don't want to cut into small pieces! This quilt goes together quickly, you can definitely get this one finished in an afternoon.
