Site for professionals

This is a site I just joined for professionals to show off their blogs and their wares. I came across it from another quilter and thought it was very interesting. When you have time, grab a cup of coffee and sit a while looking it over.

For a while, I am going to start posting pictures of the quilt patterns I have for sale (or anything else new that I come up with). Here are a couple for today.




 Almost all the patterns are designed for beginner or advanced quilters and most come with multiple size options.  All patterns have been tested for accuracy.

I hope everyone has a great week.

New rulers

After the first pass

After the second pass

After the third pass
After the 4th, last pass

I saw a wavy border treatment that I really liked but had a really hard time doing it freehand so I came up with a ruler to do it a lot more uniform. It will come in 2 sizes (patent pending). I used the smaller one yesterday on a little charity quilt I put together. The muslin strips were finished at 5". The squares I already had were cut at 3 1/2".

This ruler is really easy to use but does have to be flipped every other time.
They will be available through Leslie Allen at in West Virginia.

These are the two sizes we came up with.

Custome ideas needed

I have this beautiful quilt to do for a customer and I'm completely brain dead for ideas.
The blocks are only 8 3/4" and the border is 10".
I would appreciate any ideas you may have.

Wanted to show you all that have looked, what I decided to do. Thank you Donna for the suggestions.
The reason I went with piano keys is that the colored squares break up the light border.
I wanted to do 1/4" quilting in the blank space but didn't like it by itself so I did a little curvy thingy.
