Quiltmaker Magazine

 This is what I got in the mail today.

 Look what is inside.

Here is the original design I made.  I did a fussy
 cut in the middle of the center of the star. Quiltmaker
 made it into the color way they chose.

My sister Polly teaching Mother how to make a 
"Grandmothers Flower Garden" quilt.

Dona (a friend from Roanoke), Polly and I were privileged to a take a class with Jenny Doan from the Missour Star Quilt Company.

 Autumn's dilemma.
"Wow, this is massive."

She decided to turn her one quilt into two quilts.  The floor is my  design wall and it is filled up with my daughter's quilt.

 I had a book signing at the Virginia Quilt Museum.

This quilt is a sampler quilt Linda Tice, a good friend and coworker,  pieced this quilt in a Saturday Sampler class at Patchwork Plus and the Dayton Mennonite Sewing Circle quilted it.  It will be sold at the Mennonite Relief Sale.

I am donating Star Chain table runner which will also be sold at the Mennonite Relief Sale. Sorry about the blurry picture.  It is hanging up at Sew Classic Fabrics in the Shenandoah Heritage Famers Market until the relief sale.


  1. Congratulations! I rec'd MY copy of Quiltmaker and I was looking at this pattern for Christmas gifts. I LOVE the fussy cut one!

  2. Now I HAVE to get that magazine. I've enjoyed your patterns for ages, and made a top from your "Simply Triangles" book this summer. If it ever gets quilted, I'll send you a pic!

  3. I will definitely have to buy that magazine Barbara, what a beautiful runner! How fun to take a class with Jenny, I met her last summer. Your granddaughter looks like she is having fun too! Thanks for sharing.
