The Quilts of Christmas Past from Sew........This Is My Blog

I can't believe I haven't blogged in almost three weeks. Well, I guess I can, really.  This has been a crazy-busy December!  I have barely been in my sewing room at all. Since I don't have anything new to share I thought I'd show some of the Christmas quilts I made in the past.

Primarily Geese pattern from Flying Parrot Quilts

I’m still swamped with deadlines, but I’m surfacing to let you know about my new pattern out in the January/February 2018 issue of McCall’s Quilting!

Workshop Wednesday: Fantastic Fat Quarter Quilts from McCall's Quilting

When did you buy your first fat quarter? Do you still have it in your stash? And what is a fat quarter, anyway?

According to quilt historian Barbara Brackman, fat quarters—or one-fourth of a yard of fabric that’s been cut into quadrants roughly 20” x 18” rather than four pieces 9” x width of fabric—started appearing on quilt shop shelves sometime in the mid-1980s. She notes that they may have been referred to by names such as quilter’s samples before that time, which tells us a little about how they came into being in the first ...
