    Rainbow Star Pattern

    I’m very excited to be launching my newest pattern!  It’s my first foundation paper pieced pattern and I am super happy with how it’s turned out, and the reception it had on social media so far. This one came about one April day as I was sitting at home with my daughter, who just had her appendix removed and wasn’t allowed to do anything she considers fun, like running, skipping rope, or dance. I remembered a stack of kite paper I had bought a while ago and started looking online for how to make window stars. Half an hour later, we had a paper star on our patio door, and…

    Canadian Diamonds Pattern

    They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend… This pattern started with this mushroom fabric and some random half-square triangles that I decided to cut again and see what would happen. I quickly got an idea for a layout and started cutting the rest of the fabric with this idea in mind.

    Tumbled Love Table Runner

This one I just had to make in pinks, because I’ve been itching to use up all my lovely pink scraps, but also because my daughter informed me that hearts for Valentine’s Day always need to be pink.

    Flocks of Colour

    This fun rainbow splash of colour is my first ever published pattern, Flocks of Colour. It originally featured in Make Modern magazine’s issue 19 and is the pattern that started it all, so to speak. I used a rainbow of prints for the flying geese, and because I love bold pops of colour, I placed them on a dark blue background for maximum impact. This quilt is a lovely quick project that can easily be scaled up or down to even more sizes by a more advanced quilter, but the pattern includes instructions for both baby and throw sizes to get you started. As you can see from these pictures,…
