I have yet to make a quilt from one of her patterns, although I always admire them. In fact, I have one of her patterns from 2006 called Vintage Rose that I just had to buy - but still haven't made it!
I'm looking forward to seeing your Maple blocks and can imagine that they will be fun to make.


Oh my heavens, I have that same Deb Strain fabric. I got it right after I began quilting. I also have a Pattern Basket pattern, one called Candy Wrappers, which I’ve only made one block with. It’s a really cute pattern and I’d like to use it for Christmas placemats or a table runner. Our temps in mid-Mich are unseasonably cool, though I hesitate to say that to someone suffering through 100+ temps and potential rolling blackouts. (I wore jeans and a long sleeve top on my walk last night). I’m glad your schooling w/ Eva is going well - my grandson begins online kindergarten next Wednesday- 6 or 7 hours of sitting at a desk and zooming w/ his teacher and class. I don’t envy teachers. This is going to be hard. (Not to mention that I think it’s ridiculous to expect a 5 yr old to sit at a desk for 6 to 7 hours, 5 days a week, but that wasn’t the teacher’s call.)

Still lots of smoke around the Creek this morning. This is just so upsetting on so many levels. I did finish a baby quilt and got it in the mail yesterday for my nephew. That was a happy moment. Have a good day!



The layer cake of Fall colors will be really pretty made up for the 'Maple' pattern! An actual globe to study geography sounds great--so much more interesting than staring at a computer screen! Here's hoping you have another full day of electricity! Stay well!


oh, a globe! what a wonderful/fun id. it is so hot here....ugh.


Love Sunkissed made it last year will dig it out and send a photo.loved making it. Stay safe and cool. Hope the power situation improves


It is unseasonably cool here, which I am loving!! Lovely new patterns, off to check out her site.


What a yummy stack of colors! I think it will look amazing!


I do have several of their patterns and love them. The maple leaf would make a great runner for fall and will look forward to seeing one in the future that fabric!
