Pattern Details

What says "summer" more clearly than a new mix and match beach wardrobe? This little quilt is large enough for a lap quilt and small enough to use as a bright, summer wall hanging. This quilt was made with a layer cake, but it could easily be sewn with just a few choice fabrics or with colorful scraps. The layer cake used here is from Moda's new "High Street" fabrics. To this I added a light gray fabric for the applique blocks. So bright and summery, and I have fabrics left over to make something else. A table runner using three or four of the templates might be fun. Designed with squares surrounded by simple sashings and cornerstones, this quilt is perfect for beginning quilters. The appliques are quickly attached with fusible web and stitched around with a machine zigzag stitch. Full size templates for the square blocks are included. The instructions are detailed and filled with helpful photos and diagrams. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have though email or on my Facebook page.

When I retired from a lifetime of teaching in 2007, I was worried that I'd quickly get bored. That concern didn't last long at all. I was thrilled to discover that there really is life outside of the classroom. I spend parts of most of my days indulging in my favorite hobbies of quilting and sewing. I started designing patterns as an experiment, and no one was more surprised than I was to find that other people liked my little designs. I'm a teacher at heart, so I do try to write my patterns in such a way that beginning quilters can follow them. I include lots of details, photos, and little informative notes. I make myself easily available to my customers, and I respond to all questions as quickly and as thoroughly as I can. Contact Information: Blog:, Facebook Page:, Email:
