Dinah's Delight!
This quilt started with a simple Aunt Dinah's block but then we added in some chain blocks too! The blocks themselves are simple to piece and the quilt looks great when it's done! The pattern provides three sizes: baby (45" x 60"), lap size (as pictured) 60" x 75" and the large quilt (90" x 105".)

Fractured Star
I love scrap quilts -- can you tell? This quilt just has two blocks, the star block and a simple chain block, which makes it easy to cut and piece! This is also a good quilt for using up smaller scrap pieces. The pattern has instructions for three sizes: baby (38" x 51"), lap size, which is pictured (52" x 64") and the large quilt (77" x 89").

Queen's Court
This has been one of my favorite quilts for a very long time. I love the design and also love the fact that there's room to do some really pretty quilting -- hand or machine! Although this quilt looks complicated -- it really isn't! The photo shows the lap size (57" x 80") but there's also a large version too (81" x 103"). If you need it to be larger you can certainly add an outside border.

Gather 'Round The Table
Our book is a collection of 12 table runner patterns -- one for each month. (The patterns themselves aren't really "monthy" -- but there ARE 12 of them!) We ran these runners on our website about a year ago and received so many requests for them that we decided to put them together into a book. There are complete instructions for each runner plus color photos of two versions of each runner for a total of 58 pages. The front and back covers are laminated and it is spiral bound so that it will lie flat.

Farm Scraps
I designed this quilt to honor farm families everywhere. However, you don't have to live on a farm to enjoy it! It's got six different blocks (none of which are hard!) including a simple pieced border. The quilt finishes at approximately 85" x 102" but you can make it larger by adding another outer border.

Many thanks to Nina Thoren who has graciously allowed me to use her beautiful version of the quilt on the pattern cover and website!

This quilt pattern has been so popular! I've honestly never seen a Galaxy quilt that didn't look terrific! It seems as though any combination of fabrics works wonderfully!

This pattern offers three sizes: lap (48" x 66"), large (81" x 99") and larger (84" x 106").

I had such a good time with this pattern! The pictured quilt was pieced by my friend Sarah. Isn't it pretty! Did you notice that the pinwheels turn in opposite directions? (Don't worry -- you don't have to try and keep it straight -- it just happens when you put the blocks together!) I designed this quilt for a Retreat. The pattern includes instructions for two quilt sizes, lap and queen (89" x 102").

The Gandiegow Doctor's Quilt
I designed The Gandiegow Doctor's Quilt as a companion to the second book in Patience Griffin's Kilts & Quilts Series, Meet Me In Scotland. Although the combination of blocks in this quilt make it look quite intricate, the blocks themselves are far easier to piece than they appear! You can use up lots of scraps when you make this beautiful quilt! The large quilt is 85" x 102" and the lap size is 69" x 86".

I can't believe it! I have the quilt that accompanies Patience's 3rd book, Some Like It Scottish, finished before the book has been released! (July 5th 2015 is the released date!)

Swingin' On A Star
Bright and scrappy! Those are my favorite kind of quilts! This quilt is a scrap-buster and is fun to make because it only uses two blocks. The pattern has directions for both a lap quilt (52" x 65") and the large quilt (78" x 90). We give you several options for making the skinny star points by including a pattern for paper piecing them or you can use either the TRI-RECS tool (from EZ Quilting) or Michell Marketing's Peaky & Spike template set. Once you get everything cut -- you'll be surprised at how quickly this quilt comes together!

Thy Will Be Done
This quilt was a labor of love! My church asked me to make a quilt to hang in our new addition. How could I refuse! This quilt is somewhat deceiving because the body of the quilt is only one simple pattern piece and is very simple to piece together. The challenging part is deciding what colors to put where! (A design board or flannel-backed vinyl tablecloth helps with this!) The applique can be done either traditionally (by hand) or by machine -- which ever you prefer.
