Quilt size: 56" X 72"
Block size: 8"
This is the newest pattern and a lot of fun to make. The tree
blocks are readily adaptable to your own shape and color.
|“HEARTS ALL AROUND” $8
Quilt size: 56” x 72” (twin or queen “topper”)
Block size: 8”
This pattern was the first to be published in 1994 and is still very popular. The log
cabin blocks are a good way to use your scrap stash, and the hearts look good in all
the same red or many different ones. The appliqué can be done by hand or
machine, or that sticky fusible stuff that I really don’t like but a lot of other people do.
The lattice border is four inches wide and can be changed in a variety of ways. It
also looks good without the checker border, leaving just the red four-inch outside
border. Your choice. My job is to inspire, yours is to make the quilt the way you like
|“TIGHTEN THE TENSION!!!!!” $8
18” Square with a 3” X 10” drop-down “escapee”
The little shoes and socks can be found at many craft stores, or on-line by a “doll
shoes” internet search. Look for size six or eight.
“Tighten the Tension” was made in honor of my old Kenmore sewing machine, b. 1968
somewhere in Japan; died June 1997. I suspect suicide, although the unofficial cause
was noted as “choked on bobbin”. My old Kenmore will live in memory as a true friend!
|“WORRY BIRDS” $8
(The original name was “WHO CUT THE CHEESE?” but I was advised to change it lest
we offend the more sensitive members of our sewing community!!)
Quilt size: 38” X 40”
Bird Block size: 6” X 12”
Paper foundation sheets for five bird blocks are included. Permission to photocopy the
foundation sheets for your own use is granted.
In order to thoroughly enjoy this pattern, you must have basic foundation piecing skills.
It is a good idea to photocopy the eyeballs foundation paper before you start, because
everyone I know, including me, usually goofs up the first try. Cross that hurdle and the
rest is easy.
|“JOE COOL” (in 1959) $8
Joe is a really cool guy…. Or at least HE thinks so! (Giggle!)
This was made after attending a high-school reunion.
Use your own creativity for unique variations of tummy size and please send me a
picture! I found a big, ugly plaid for his shirt and a reproduction fabric which looks
like polyester knit for his pants. The button on his suspenders says "I Do All My
Own Nude Scenes"
|“DOUBLE SQUARES” $8
Quilt size: 64” x 72”
This block is really a good “stash-buster” and I’ve made it in many colorways. The
example on the pattern cover is done in bright colors. Use your stash and try
|"NINE TO FOUR" $8
This quilt is 65” X 73” and made from 6” and 3” blocks.
The pattern gives instructions for the quilt shown at left which I made
from my stash of plaid fabrics.
The quilt show at right is the original “Nine to Four” quilt I made in
(about) 1993 using my stash of “country” fabrics. You can see the
design of the “nine patch” and the “4 patch” blocks can be easily
modified for your own design.
The plaid Nine to Four quilt shown at left and on our pattern cover,
lives on my living room couch to keep our upholstery from being
“Yorkyized” by our little dog;
The country Nine to Four lives next to the living room recliner and
keeps Wayne the Wonderful toasty warm on winter nights.
DID YOU KNOW: That in order to receive the optimum benefit from
any quilt, it must be used “pretty side UP”. Wayne the Wonderful has
difficulties with this concept.
|"HEARTS AND FLOWERS" $8
Quilt Size: 56” X 72”; Block size: 8”
Another appearance for the versatile log cabin block. This version is made with
lovely batik fabrics. Use any applique method you prefer.
|"EASY PINWHEEL QUILT" $8
Pattern shows a unique easy method for making perfect pinwheels.
Quick to assemble 10" blocks. The pattern size is 66" X 76" but
the quick to assemble 10" blocks, makes it easily adjusted to any
size you like. This quilt also looks good in other colorways.
The sample at left is another stash buster with a country theme,
the one on the right used quite a few of my collection of floral
prints. Both look fantastic! (OF COURSE!!!)
