Welcome to Cora's Quilts on Craftsy! My name is Shelley: wife, mom, quilter, and designer from Sacramento, CA. I love designing quilting projects big and small, alike - my patterns are built upon classic quilt blocks and patterns, that have been updated for the contemporary sewer. I include directions for modern, simplified, time-saving cutting and piecing techniques, and some of my favorite building blocks are those fabulous pre-cut fabric bundles, like 5" Charm Packs and 10" Layer Cakes. The majority of my patterns are also scrap-bin friendly, so if you're looking to make a little bit of room in your stash, you've come to the right place! All my projects include clear, concise instructions accompanied by full-color illustrations and photos.
