When I was teaching at our local Adult Education program, I spent many hours making quilts, and then constructing patterns and writing instructions for my students. Several years into it, I realized  I could take these same instructions and publish them as patterns.

Please contact me at to purchase and for information about these patterns.

I love “liberated” techniques and find they are easy, fun and rewarding methods to make eye-catching quilts. The results often look more complicated than they are. The non-conformist approach to cutting frees my spirit and the process of constructing a quilt becomes more fun than almost any other quilt-related activity. We all need  more fun in our lives!

The Four-Patch Bliss uses two contrasting fabrics and makes a 50″ x 50″ quilt.                  The Nine-Patch Hash quilt uses nine fabrics of various values for the blocks with contrasting borders. It is approximately 50″ x 50″.                                                                                                                                    The Garden Maze uses four coordinating fabrics, a background floral and finishes at approximately 60″ x 72″.

Each pattern uses “liberated” techniques, gives full yardage and step-by-step instructions. $10

An interest in my life are the books I read to my daughter when she was little. Since I now have grandnieces and a grandnephew in the family, I started a series of quilts based on well-loved children’s books. “Caps for Sale” by Esphyr Slobokina and “Rainbow Fish” by Marcus Pfister are two classics that every child should know, enjoy and come to love. I hope to have more coming up in the series.

Here are the two patterns for Monkey Business, inspired by “Caps for Sale” and Fish Scales, based on “Rainbow Fish.” Each book and pattern are available as a set for $20, or you may buy the pattern separately for $10.
