Let’s Polka Dot!

I’ve made a wall hanging quilt and a quilt for each of the girls but wanted to learn more about Quilting. So I signed up for a free Block of the Month class at Craftsy.com. It was September 2013 and I was late getting started so I ordered the fabric from Craftsy so that I could catch up with the class. I changed the layout of the quilt and am very pleased with the way that my design turned out. So I with a little more confidence, I joined the BOM club at my local quilt shop.

But I am considering making a wall hanging and a lap quilt that look something like this:








Pane by Pane

This is adapted from a pattern called “Pane By Pane” by Tony Jacobson. I fell in love with the fabric since it reminds me of my apple trees in winter. I hung it on the cold north wall over the tub in my bathroom.

And I just finished a Starting with the Basics class at the Constant Quilter where we made this table topper. My instructor, Linda Barnes, designed this cute little quilt and helped me pick out the fabrics.
