Dresden Plate Quilt, New Christmas Quilt Patterns, Suzn Quilts Patterns

New Tiny & Mini Dresden Plate Patterns now available

They’re back from the printer & ready to ship!

New patterns that use my new Tiny Dresden template.


A 10″ stocking, that’s a cute as can be (if I must say so myself!)

These are quick & easy.

Completely by machine except for the hand work to stitch the binding.

Also using Tiny Dresden plates,


make either the runner or wall quilt with adorable little angels.

“A Joyful Christmas” was stitched by hand with perle cotton,

the rest was all done by machine.

I even sew my buttons on by machine.

 I can’t wait to see what other color combinations these are made into.

Lastly, incorporating both my tiny & mini Dresden plates,


Dresden Heaven.

I absolutely love this quilt!

I used fat quarters, but you can use charm squares & layer cakes along with yardage.

A shop ordered these yesterday and she’s going to use the new Downton Abbey collection.

I can’t wait to see it!

Check your local quilt shop or my website to get yours today.

Sew them for Christmas, or put them on your Christmas list!

Until next time,

New Pattern; Sharing my Joy

This is yet another new quilt-as-you-go lap quilt as well as table runner and place mats.

I love the graphic impact of the design and colors of this one, how about you?

I decided to make the runner or skinny quilt and place mats quilt-as-you-go too.  It makes their construction really fast.

This pattern will be available soon on my website.

Until next time,

New Pattern, Clare’s Christmas Puppy #183

I hope you’re enjoying this bit of show & tell!  I had so much fun this (very cold & long) winter.  It’s the perfect time to dream & design.  It was too cold to be out anyway, so why not sew? 

My next pattern I have to give credit to my daughter, Clare.  She is quite the artist.  She likes to draw, design, color, AND quilt too!  At 13 years old she is amazing.  2-3 years ago she drew the cutest little puppy.  It was so cute that I hung it on our frig for quite a long time.  I knew I wanted to do something with that cute puppy one day.  So, finally this design came to me and I made a table runner and little quilt.

Meet Clare’s Christmas Puppy:

Isn’t he cute? 

I can say that because I didn’t create him, I just made him into a quilt.  You can’t tell from this little photo of him, but I used wool that I felted.  I still used fusible web and machine stitched him with a buttonhole stitch.  In case you can’t tell the tag says “Merry Christmas.”  

Don’t be surprised if you see Clare’s puppy in other designs in the future.  I really like him!

Look for him at your local quilt shop, or you can purchase him here.

Until next time,
