Like so many sewists I know, I have been sewing since the age of 6. I started at my mother's feet, fashioning her scraps into doll clothes. By age 16, I was spending Summers sewing my wardrobe for the coming school year. I was known as a creative dresser. I wrote my first sewing pattern in 2006 as part of applying for a patent.
Now I have thousands of satisfied sewing pattern customers and am very happy to be part of the bourgeoning online sewing community.

Over Christmas break, I frequently sat at the kitchen table with my daughter and doodled. This is the design I had the most fun drawing over and over again in different colors and in different proportions. Eventually, I got curious to see if I could translate my drawing into a quilt.
I love that it looks complicated or woven, but it actually comes together quite easily with strip piecing and no actual weaving. To my eye, the finished quilt is engaging and interesting. It looks quite handsome in "manly" fabrics, something my son appreciates.
The small quilt, which is a great crib size, can be completed in just a few hours. The large one will probably take you a few sessions.
The pattern is 10 pages that you look at on your computer screen or print at home. It includes yardage broken down by size of quilt and by color for easy shopping. A cutting chart organizes the project by size and color so you can easily do all of your cutting at once. The instructions walk you through the piecing and cutting with lots of illustrations to guide you.
I love my Warp and Weft quilts and I think you will too.
