new fabric collection, New ideas

New Moda Christmas Fabrics, 2013 that is…

You might be thinking Christmas is o-v-e-r,

but for Suzn Quilts, Christmas it’s just starting!

Take a look at my new Christmas fabrics, thanks to the generous folks at Moda.

Christmas Countdown fabrics 2013

It’s the new “Christmas Countdown” by Deb Strain.

Looks pretty cute with my vintage-looking Christmas tin from my SIL Janet don’t you think?

The first project that I’m going to use these fabrics for is a sampler.

There is fusible applique & some pieced blocks as well.

My question to you is what do you think about samplers and block-of-the-month projects???

My new sample is easily broken down into 12 steps…

Since I have a lot of time to think while I’m cutting & sewing, I’m still contemplating the format of this pattern.

The body of the quilt is about 45″ x 50″, then I will probably add a border or two.

Any thoughts?

Don’t worry, you don’t have to think about your Christmas sewing projects yet.

This collection won’t even be available in shops until June!

Until next time,


My Life

Happy New Year 2013!!!

New Years Postcard

I’m excited about this new year.

For one thing, my favorite number is 13.

I don’t know why, it just is.

For another thing, Suzn Quilts is 10 years old this year!

I have met so many incredible people, traveled to places I’ve never been, and my patterns & designs are being sold around the world!

Suzn Quilts is always evolving and 2013 has some exciting things in store for you…

For now, I want to wish you a Happy New Year!

May your 2013 be filled with peace, joy & good health.

Until next time,
