Hi! I am Janet Barker from Calgary, AB. I have been quilting for 16 years and have been designing my own quilt patterns for about 9 years. At the request of my guild, I started publishing my patterns in 2011. My pattern testers, customers and students have been very happy with their results using my new patterns. I love seeing another quilter's version of my designs!
My patterns often incorporate completely original blocks, or at the very least new twists on standard blocks. In addition to standard piecing, I have three other types of designs - folded back bias curves (sometimes called Cathedral Windows curves), geometrics using "grout", and tessellations. So far I have not incorporated curved piecing or applique, but that may come!
I have an engineering degree and am a retired geophysicist; perhaps that is why I love the geometry of quilting! I hope that you will enjoy stitching up some of my designs.

Wholesale inquiries welcome.
This small quilt makes a wonderful table topper or wall hanging to add to your Christmas decor. Folded bias edges are rolled back to create curves with no curved piecing. Keep things simple with just one block and a number of interesting borders.
Alternate border options are possible but are not included in the pattern instructions. An alternate layout is also shown here for a table runner using three Poinsettia blocks but is not included in the pattern.
