Pat sloan gemini 25 discount

I recently hinted that I found a wonderful new tool when I was at the trade show in Houston, it's arrived!

My friend Katy Jones wrote me before I went to the show. She works with Crafter's Companion company and asked me if I'd like to take a look at the die cut machine they make. If Katy asks me, I'm going to take a look! I've known Katy for a long time, she has been on  my podcast, and she is a super talented quilt maker and friend.

Pat sloan splendid sampler for madge

Welcome Splendid Sampler Quilters!

My block today is to honor my amazing mother-in-law Madge.

I hit the jackpot on getting the best MIL there is! 

Madge and I share a love of quilting and gardening. Our two favorite things to talk about. She is also an amazing seamstress. Making most of her clothing since she was a teenager. Quite posh, I love that photo of her showing off a new outfit!

I actually learned to quilt before Madge did. When she started to take classes her beginner sampler had a 'Honey bee' block, and I really wished mine had one ...

Island Batik Star Struck Quilt Tutorial from Carol Lyles Shaw

This month’s challenge for Island Batik is Star Struck and this is my quilt tutorial and free pattern for my modern version of a star.

I had a difficult time getting the color match on the full quilt photos! This looks a bit yellow–background fabric is actually white. See the close up of the star point below for the true colors.

The Island Batik Ambassador challenge this month was to create a Star Quilt.  I decided to take a modern approach and create an oversized wonky star using a limited color palette.  The modern design principles I played ...

Christmas in Ohio from Gray Barn Designs

If you know me at all, you know that I love vintage textiles. One of my favorite things to do is wander through an antique mall touching and admiring old quilts, vintage linens and lace. I cannot say exactly why, but if I’m really stressed out or tense, a trip through an antique store is better than wine for calming my nerves — which is saying something, because, well, there are very few things better than wine!

Now earlier this year I told you about a set of beautiful hand-pieced vintage Ohio Stars that I found in a second hand ...

Born To Be Free from Pieced Brain


Free pattern alert! I designed Born to be Free for Hoffman Fabrics beautiful Wide Open Spaces panel. The quilt design brings to mind everything related to horses: leather saddles, checkered shirts, riding on grassy fields... a perfect quilt for horse lovers or for anyone who wants to bring a bit of the 'wild' to their home decor.


Here is a different version of Born to be Free, this time featuring the Imagine This panel. I love the purples on the artwork! Hoffman Fabrics digital prints are so beautiful and I am delighted to work with them.
