Look What Came in the Mail!!

I opened my issue of American Patchwork & Quilting that came in the mail today and guess what I found?  It is the April 2017 issue, and on page 73 was a copy of my quilt pattern in the Northcott ad!

This is really an amazing picture for a number of reasons.  Of course I am thrilled that they chose my design to feature for their new A Stitch In Time fabric collection (which is fabulous, I might add). But the pattern includes two sizes -- a throw and a table topper -- in the pattern.

But there are also two more patterns using this line in addition to this Studio Throw pattern.  You can get them here on my Website.

I also designed a Studio Wall Quilt

and a Studio Organizer using this fabric collection.

This last design is super easy!  The squares with the saying on them are pockets, sewn onto the background fabric, for storing tools and notions in your sewing room.  The fabrics are all pre-print stripes, panels, and prints, so there is very little piecing in this project.

Check out the Northcott website for this fabric line.  There are several great tote bag patterns (by other designers) that are very cool and would go well with these patterns.These vintage block and sewing machine prints go with a group of Stonehenge fabrics in a collection called Oxidized Copper.  What is not to love about these?

I love designing patterns for Northcott because they keep giving me wonderful fabric collections to work with.  You should be able to find this line at your local quilt shop.  I know several shop owners have called me to order patterns for kits, so check your local shops and pick up some of this yummy yardage.
