Story Quilt pattern and game rules from Wisonsin Quilting

Create this quilt to trigger imaginative story telling either with or without a second person “playing.” There are all sorts of ways to use this quilt if you create this combination of an I-Spy quilt with the rules of Calvin and Hobbes’ Calvinball.* Start with your stash, or ask your guild to send you scrap fabric squares that fit a theme: I asked my guild members to give me 5″ squares that depicted either a destination, a vehicle or conveyance, or something you would take with you on a trip. I received wonderfully diverse fabric scraps and it was a ...

Let Your Light So Shine — Santa Paper Piecing design process from Wisonsin Quilting

Paper piecing lets me make sure that the quilts I produce have personal meaning. I love this paper pieced Santa $9 pattern (makes a 15″ x 15″ square, or if you add a bit more background, a quilted lined bag) because it started long ago with a “mid-century” candlestick that my mom brought out during the Christmas season.

My designs start with a sketch, playing with light and angles.

The pattern comes as a PDF download for you to print: 4 pages for the Santa and 4 more pages to cover the straps and wider belly of the bag if ...
