New Pattern for June

Way back in January, I set a goal for myself to introduce a new pattern to you every month this year.
Well, I just managed to squeak this one in before the end of this month!
Here it is.... (drumroll please)
It's called "Harvest Dance" because I made it with all those gorgeous fall colours--
red, green, gold, orange, rust, brown--
which I just love!
Then I added some sunflowers and stars and berries with fusible appliqué.
The quilt measures 48" x 48", which isn't a huge project.
So, if you feel like making a quilt for fall, now would be the time to get started!
(Even though I don't like to think about summer being over, just yet!)
The pattern's available on my website, www.countryquilts.ca now so come on over!
And while you're there, check out the finished items I'm selling--
just click on the "Stuff for Sale" button on the left side of the page.

New Pattern

So here's my latest!
What do you think?
It's called "Pineapple Squares"
and measures 64" square.
I love scrappy quilts, don't you?
The little squares measure 1" after they're sewn together.
Here's a close-up of some of the exquisite custom quilting by 
Deb Sanderson of Surrey, BC.
And another one.
You've got to see the back!
Isn't it a work of art?




The pattern is now available on my website.
Hope you like it!

New Pattern for April

So who's ready for spring?
It can never come soon enough for me!
To celebrate its faithful return, I'm offering a new pattern, "Garden Blooms".
It measures 56" x 56" and features a large flower medallion in the center.
It's actually so new, I'm just putting the finishing touches on the pattern today, but it will be available for sale on the New Patterns page of my website, www.countryquilts.ca, within an hour or two!
Hope you like it!
Merry, merry spring, everyone!

New Pattern for March

Here it is--another new pattern for you!
It measures 64" square and I called it "Bumbleberry Pie" because it was inspired by all the wonderful berries that are grown here--blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries.
Many teenage summers were spent picking berries to earn pocket money and I can tell you, I'd much rather quilt them than pick them!
I have to thank Darlene Epp for her exquisite custom quilting.
Doesn't it just make the quilt?
You can order the pattern from my website, www.countryquilts.ca
or you can download it instantly at Patternspot and save on shipping costs!
Hope you like it!
Also, just to let you know that I have a few copies of my first book, Country Comforts, available on my website for the sale price of $15.95!  While quantities last.
