my newest quilt kit is available
Shizuka means "quiet" in Japanese and this quilt celebrates the simplicity of design and depth of texture that is so common with Japanese textile art.
This quilt will make you want to pull it up around yourself, get comfy, and settle in to read a good book, visit with a friend, or watch TV. It also is a very practical addition to a bedroom where you may want a bit of extra warmth on cold winter nights.
Available now in my online store, you have the option to also purchase a linen backing that beautifully complements the quilt top.
Here's a link to the kit if you want to purchase it online. Alternatively you can book a visit and pick one up.

stef francis perle cottons loaded on my website...
Hand-dyed and scrumptious, Stef Francis perle cottons from England are great for adding a little touch of extra interest and texture to your quilts.
The perle cottons in sizes 3, 5 and 8 are loaded on my online shop for your easy access. Have fun.

photos of a few lovely customer quilts
These are some photos of quilts that customers have recently brought to my studio, either in person or electonically.
I always appreciate seeing what folks are doing as it gives me ideas for my own quilts.
Passing them along in case any might inspire you... This first one is from Bena Luxton.
Bena also brought in these wee quilts... I like the playful nature of this work.
Joyce Lepine sent me photos of her Heading Home quilt, which she resized to Queen size... starting with doubling the quilt pattern in a clever fashion.
It is very satisfying to see such creativity being applied to my patterns. Thanks Joyce!
That, my friends, is all the news from here. I’m hoping you are all well and I am sending my best wishes. I hope some of you will be by to shop the clearance room (actually I hope many of you will!). For those at a distance, text, email or call me if you want to shop from the clearance section. I'm happy to pick out fabrics for you.
