Busy couple of weeks at Mulqueens

Mulqueen's Sewing Center is a local business that has carried my patterns for several years now. Every July, they do Christmas in July all month long. This year I did a trunk show, demos and Make & Takes for them. Last week where we unveiled our newest pattern and fabric kit, Harvest Leaves Wreath , which I am holding in the photo above and I did demos on using our Binding Ruler  and Value Tool

I had a nice turn out of people and the last visitor of the day brought me her quilt finished using our One Lump or Two pattern . It was so exciting to see it all finished along with the lovely young lady she made it for.

 This week I spent Thursday doing Make & Take Gift Tag labels at Mulqueens that I designed especially for these classes. I had so much fun with this that I will be adding the free pattern for these guys to our website soon. So stay tune......

Until next time.....

Happy Go Lucky

I have been going through some of the projects I have done over the years and want share some of them with you. These are older patterns and the fabrics are no longer available, but most of the would look great out other fabrics! So here is the first one..

Happy Go Lucky was designed for P&B Textiles several years ago using this stunning red/black/white collection. The quilt is pretty simple to make and though it is hard to see in this small photo, I cut the blocks with a wavy edge to add more interest to the design. 

The tote bag is so quick and easy to make, that I have made several of these to use for just about anything. I did't put batting in the bag, making it ideal to fold up and throw in my luggage for an extra tote on my many trips. 

The pattern also includes easy instructions to assemble the flower! These can become addicting to make so just remember I warned you about them. 

Enjoy and happy quilting!

Until next time.....

Guess what is finally here!!!

These lovely boxes arrived yesterday and finally.............

Our newest line of fabric "Under The Sea" has arrived. This is my first line since 2009 and I am very excited to get back to designing fabric again. We will get these posted on our website, so you can have some too!

We have lots of projects already in the works using this group. So keep an eye out for them!

In case you were wondering about the inspiration behind the group. Here is one of our three very popular patterns we have done over the years. One Fish, Two Fish.... The pattern and fabric kits are a staple on our website!

Until next time....
