My New Pattern for Timeless Treasures from The Inquiring Quilter

I often design patterns for fabric companies, and recently I designed a pattern for new fabric collections by Timeless Treasures.

The pattern is called Panel Play Bees, and it features the Save the Bees collection.

Quilt Block Mania - January is Romance from The Inquiring Quilter

Welcome to my stop on the Quilt Block Mania Blog Hop. Each of the designers participating in the hop are sharing a block pattern inspired by this month’s theme, which is Romance.

I’m very romantic and so is my husband, so I originally thought of wedding rings, roses, and hearts for my block but another design kept intruding on my thoughts. So my block isn’t about romance as much as love, and how love enables us to overcome our differences and to find our similarities instead.

I call my block Love Conquers All.

Twisted Hearts from Quiltwoman Blog

by Mary Ann Sprague, of Mary Ann’s Makings

Over the last few years, I’ve experimented with foundation paper-pieced quilts and table runners. Through paper-piecing, I’ve explored the world of Celtic knots, incorporating shadows into the quilt top to show the over/under of the woven ribbons. I’ve greatly enjoyed creating these Celtic knot patterns. (I’ve learned a lot about MS Visio in the process as well </p>

Finding something for everyone. from QUilting By-You

If you have been in the shop you have surely heard one of us say there’s more than one way to do that. It’s one of the things that I love best about quilting. If you try a method and it doesn’t work, there is another method (or more!) that may be a better fit for you.

It goes for more than just piecing methods. Quilting as a whole is set up that way.

There are so many fabric options available it makes my head spin. And just because something is trending that you may not like ...

Christmas Topiary from Quiltwoman Blog

Christmas! It is the happiest time of the year for so many of us. I think that part of the reason we love Christmas so much is because we take the time to add beauty to our surroundings. These acts are built into the very traditions that we cherish.  There is a mystical nature to beauty. First we create it,  then we experience it with our five senses. Beauty in part, is the physiological and emotional response to that which touches the heart. Beauty helps us to hope.  The next time something beautiful puts a smile on your face, pay ...

Quilt Block Mania - December is Stars from The Inquiring Quilter

Welcome to my stop on the Quilt Block Mania Blog Hop. Each of the designers participating in the hop are sharing a block pattern inspired by this month’s theme, which is Stars!

I love looking at stars in the night sky. I love finding familiar constellations and planets and connecting the two. Because we are nearing Christmas, this month’s theme had me thinking of only one star—the star that led the wise men to the place of Jesus’ birth.

For me, it’s a hopeful star. And that’s what I wanted to depict in this month ...
