My Life, New quilt pattern

Day #2, 5 New Patterns in 5 Days


I, along with 99 other designers, am featuring a block in Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 2!  It contains 100, original 12″ blocks by different designers and contains full size patterns and setting ideas too. It is scheduled to be out Mid-November, but the blog hop that you’ll want to join in on starts Monday, November 8.  So, mark you calendar, because Quiltmaker is giving away lots of nice prizes.  Among the prizes will be the 100 autographed blocks featured in the issue.  You’ll have a chance to win a copy of the collector’s edition publication right here on my blog, Monday.

Now, back to my originally scheduled “5 new patterns in 5 days” blog…  This next pattern,

#169 Welcome to my Home

  It’s made using fusible applique.  The houses are two different sizes and the larger one I’ve also shown appliqued  on a tea towel.  I love making quick little projects like applique tea towels for gifts.  Like yesterday’s pattern, 3 Little Words, this quilt and towel were also featured at one of my holiday open houses.  I recently visited a friend of mine and she had one of these towels hanging in her kitchen.  I had stopped in unannounced at Vi’s house to give her some Christmas baking dishes for our upcoming smorgasbord bazaar for church. so I know she didn’t hang it on my account!  That got me thinking I needed to turn this design into a pattern too. 

If you’re so inclined, stop by my website and shop a bit.  More patterns in the next coming days. And don’t forget to drop by Quiltmaker’s Website and get ready for the blog tour!

Until next time,
