American Flag

As an instructor for many years, I have discovered numerous patterns with poorly written instructions, causing great frustration for those using the pattern.  Consequently, when I design the quilt that will appear on the cover of my patterns, I spend a tremendous amount of time writing clear, accurate instructions.  I
have several usability testers to proof and critique my patterns and instructions before they go on the market. To read more, see my mission statement.

To order patterns, please e-mail or call 540-808-7356.  When emailing, please include all your contact information. Credt cards
accepted over the phone.

Alice's Quest for Victory
(Quilt Size 54¾" square)

Alice's Quest for Victory pattern cover

I designed this pattern in honor of my dear friend, Alice.  She is a fairly new quilter and after two bouts of ovarian cancer she wanted to make a quilt.  I refer to it as her “therapy quilt”.  This project helped Alice focus on her quest for victory during difficult times.

Kaleidoscope Flower Garden
(Wallhanging size 54¾" square and all bed sizes)

Kaleidoscope Flower Garden pattern cover

This is a fun quilt to stitch. Watch the dancing kaleidoscopes come to life as they waltz across the quilt top.  I love the traditional Bear Paw quilt block.  I designed the flower on this block with inspiration from the Bear Paw block.  After creating my quilted couch, I wanted to design a quilt pattern with the same block, available for all bed sizes. 


Trendy T-Shirts Transformed
Quilt pattern includes instructions for all bed sizes

Trendy T-Shirts Transformed pattern cover

Transform your trendy t-shirts into an awesome quilt that you (or the fortunate recipient) will enjoy for many years to come.  Have fun sewing down memory lane while making this creation.  If your quilt is a gift, the recipient will have a ball remembering where each and every T-shirt came from.

People have asked me on numerous occasions, "Are those t-shirts?" With the products and techniques used in the pattern, this quilt is a classy t-shirt quilt.

Grilling Guys Apron

Grilling Guys Apron pattern

Grilling Guys Apron originated from a need. My daughter called and said, "Mom, my boyfriend wants a guy apron and we can’t find one.  Will you make him one?" I realized my son, the ultimate grilling guy who has won culinary awards (he is awesome at grilling and smoking meat) needed a guy apron.  At a quilting retreat, I heard a lady comment that her husband wanted a camouflage apron.  Therefore I designed Grilling Guys Apron.  This pattern is dedicated to my son, who worked as a fly fishing guide in Alaska, Colorado, Montana and Wyoming.  While guiding in Alaska, one of his job descriptions was to “grill a shore lunch that the guests will remember for years to come”.

Lighthouse Cottage By The Sea

Lighthouse Cottage By The Sea was created to commemorate our 30th wedding anniversary trip to Florida.   I considered creating a scrapbook, but instead designed a scrapbook quilt that resembled 35mm film strips and beach memorabilia. Working with the vivid, cheerful colors was a breath of fresh air and filled my heart with joy.

Classy Custom Couch or Chair Creation

In this pattern, I give instructions on teaming up with a professional upholstery
specialist to fashion a couch or chair that is sure to be a conversation piece. Quilted Couch Photo

Story behind this design:
We were in the market for new living room furniture and I hated the thought of giving up my comfortable couch with a cozy hide-a-bed that we use when we have a house full of company.  After all, they don’t make things like they used to and the sofa has a good, sturdy frame.  I called Francine's Upholstery to get a quote on reupholstering my couch.  She mentioned her classes at the Jacksonville Center for the Arts in Floyd, Virginia and I decided to take a class.  We were visiting about the project and I expressed my interest in using two fabrics.  At that point, I had the bright idea that I could have a quilted couch!  The end result was stunning.  Quilt shop owners from miles around went crazy over my first quilted cushion.  I decided to share my concept with others.  When I went to my machine quilter’s house to pick up the quilt, she commented, “This looks really good on my bed.”  She was right.  I made the decision to add instructions for a bed quilt to the book.  If you create a couch, chair or quilt from this book, I’d love to see your project!
