We've hit a few snags in our latest quilt - including running short of fabric twice - so we have called a halt to production as we reassess and see where it is headed. Polly is tired of jumping through hoops to make it come together.
This is not unusual in the development of a new pattern because it requires lots of tweaking to make things gel, and in the simplest way possible. The latter is key to a successful design. As Einstein said, "make things as simple as possible, but no simpler". We are working towards that end.
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.
