Cerulean Dreams Quilt

Blue Stars

I hope you guys aren’t tired of seeing new quilts!  Last fall I worked on a number of magazine quilts and they are all coming out at the same time!  This is Cerulean Dreams–I looove this one!

Cerulean Dreams

As I was working on this quilt, I kept calling it Blue Plate Special because all I could think about was this type of Blue & White Porcelain Dishes.

The fabrics I used are from the Meridian line of fabric by P&B Textiles.  McCall’s Quilting is actually having a giveaway thru May 31st if you’d like to win some of your own!


This quilt features applique–but, you might be surprised how simple the applique is on this quilt.  I used one of the fabrics in a nifty way that makes the applique quite a bit simpler than it appears. =)


Cerulean Dreams is featured in McCall’s Quilting May/June 2014.  You can see my quilt on the cover!–That’s always a fun sight for a designer to see.  =)

Hope you all have a wonderfully productive weekend!


Tropical Illusion Quilt

Tropical Illusion Quilt


Today I’m sharing a new pattern I designed for P&B Textiles.  This is my Tropical Illusion quilt & it utilizes a fun way to incorporate striped fabrics into your quilt.  All of the striped squares in this quilt only use one fabric.  This one:


It’s such a fun way to work with striped fabric!  All of the fabrics in the quilt are from the Veracruz line of fabric.

By the way, did you know that upside down birds are considered bad luck?–I had no idea either!  When I was working on this quilt I chatted a bit with Jessica Weisen, the designer of this fabric, and she filled me in.  The outer border fabric has great tropical flowers and birds.

Hawthorne Threads has the full line of fabric available & the free pattern for Tropical Illusion is available here.

Thank you so much for all of your wonderful comments on my Star Squared quilt!  If you read my blog and leave comments, you know that I almost always respond–however, I am never able to respond to all of the comments on my giveaway posts.  I wish so badly that I could have responded to each and every comment left on that post!–I loved reading what you all were up to this past weekend!  It made me wish we could all get together and have a big old quilting party!

Random Winner

The winner of my Grace giveaway bundle was comment #11, Dorothy.

Congrats Dorothy!–I’ll be sending you an email shortly!



Sunstruck {Free Pattern by LMS}

Lottie Da Quilt

It’s time for another free pattern Friday!  This time featuring my Sunstruck Quilt pattern I designed for P&B Textiles featuring their Tuscan Breeze line of fabric.

The quilt at the top of this post is actually made using Lottie Da by Heather Bailey for Free Spirit Fabrics.  As I was designing this quilt pattern I kept picturing it in Lottie Da and knew I wanted to try it out in these fabrics.

Here it is in Tuscan Breeze:

Sunstruck finishes at 61″ square and is an easy quilt to piece.  I used “stitch & flip” techniques for all of the triangle shaped pieces.  So, even though it looks complex, the quilt is constructed using all rectangles or squares.

The free pattern is available here.

Have a wonderful Friday!
