I've had a quilt stuck in my head for over a year. I have sewn it virtually in many fabrics and colour combinations, tweaking the design each time. When I saw this striped fabric at Mrs. Pugsley's, I knew it was time to make it for real.
The coordinates are solids and subtle dots; the red and white polka dot will be backing. It makes me think of Minnie Mouse, but the design has no mice. It will include all kinds of geometric shapes: circles, squares, diamonds, triangles...and stripes. This will be a fun project to sew and I am excited to start cutting.
I'm a quilt and pattern designer, award winning quilt maker, author and teacher. Since 1989, I have published well over 300 quilting patterns in magazines such as McCall's Quilting, Quilter's Newsletter, Quilt World, The Canadian Quilter and Quilter's Connection. I have contributed designs to 14 different books and co-authored Canadian Heritage Quilting with Diane Shink.My latest book, Quilting Beauties Come In All Shapes and Sizes, was published by AQS in 2015.
