Dresden Dreaming….

Dresden Dreams

The quilting world has gone Block of the Month crazy, including me!!

As a quilt designer, its so much fun to play with many different blocks for a quilt, and block of the month is even more fun!  Its also a great way to keep in touch with people.    This table topper version I gave to a friend of mine for her birthday.  The fabric is called Fresh Cut – I sell the pattern and the kit on my website.

I made this quilt available online with a wonderful group and now that our class is almost finished, I will be offering again to anyone who wants to join.

Signups begin 9/1/15 through 10/1/15.  Class begins 10/15/15  By class I mean, each month I will send you a lesson with plenty of color photos and samples to guide you through each lesson.  This session I’ll be including some tutorials – written and video.  I promise this is a fun online class which includes many extra patterns for free!  I always include color tips, piecing tips and a special facebook page to post our progress.

To learn more about this online class, please visit my website page or contact me directly through my email.

Just to entice you a little more, here are some of my blocks…Each month is a different block so don’t get too attached as you will learn a new one the next month, I promise, you’ll love it!!

 I used a collection and chose different colors each month, but this quilt looks just as great with every scrap you own.

I’d also like to show you a few of the students blocks – they are just beautiful!!



I promise to show more later, for now I have to go finish this months block!!

Happy Happy 4th of July!!

Love Mug Rug

I can’t believe another year has come and gone….I spent last 4th of July with some very special friends at their beach house, eating great food, watching fireworks and talking about the possibility of them moving to the east coast for this 4th of July.  Well that possibility became a reality in April and they are now living somewhere in North Carolina.

 Does that mean we can’t go to their beach house anyway? Well, since they don’t live there anymore (boo hoo) I have to find someplace or something else to do!

 I’ve come up with the perfect plan and it wasn’t even my idea…..I’m gonna sew all day with my favorite quilters!

 Its a great consolation prize – right??

Now speaking of prizes…

I’ve decided to give away 4 (get it 4th of July) of my holiday mug rugs!  I use them everywhere, I put my lap top on one when its on my lap, I put lunch on one, I use for coffee and breakfast – so many uses and so pretty too.  I make these mug rugs with special combination of leftover scraps, so they look scrappy but they are actually coordinated.  The heart is a signature design for Ladylike – I can and will be making stars too.  I fill with a lightweight filler flannel and quilt with a meandering stitch.  I also use a hand binding as you would a quilt.  They are a very sturdy and completely washable.

I’m very curious what you do for 4th of July, so if you want to drop me a line or just say hello – I’ll assign a number and throw your number in a hat along with the rest and draw 4 numbers on Monday and let you know if you won.

Here are some more pictures of my finished mug rugs….
