Introducing Peg Spradlin

You may not be familiar with her name, but you’ve seen Peg’s work on the pages of Quiltmaker for many years. She is one of our home sewers and also designs patterns, most recently the crazy quilt stocking ornaments in Holiday Handiwork in our Nov/Dec ’09 issue.

PegSpradlin 150x150 Introducing Peg Spradlin

Hi, my name is Peg Spradlin.  I’m a home sewer for Quiltmaker and Quilters Newsletter magazines and have been for the past 20 years.  They’re great magazines and I’ve enjoyed every project sent my way—big or small, challenging or easy.

I’m a great believer in learning from other quilters and have sharpened my quilting skills by taking classes from some of the best in the industry—Hari Walner, Diane Gaudynski, and Sue Nickels to name a few.  I also teach classes nationally on all aspects of quilting, including machine quilting, foundation piecing and applique.  A complete list of my classes is available on my website at

Also available, for a limited time on my website, are decorative hooks made from

fine flatware that may be purchased and used to display the miniature crazy quilt

Christmas stocking ornaments (a design of mine) that are patterned in the Nov/Dec ’09 issue of Quiltmaker.

I’ve also designed a quilt block, Spring Blossom, which is being included in the

new Quiltmaker publication “100 Blocks from Today’s Top Designers”  (on sale 11/17).

Look for my shadow applique calendar holder which will be featured in the Jan/

Feb 2010 issue of Quiltmaker.

    This isn’t a Quiltmaker pattern. You might check with your local dealer to see about buying the pattern.

    I am looking for the ‘Gather Round the Tree’ quilt pattern that could be a table topper or a tree skirt. Our local dealer did it as a class but we never received the pattern or saw the write up. Could you please tell me where I could find this? My friend did two of them and really liked them.

    What a great idea! I have some of the Christmas and party dresses my mom made for me when I was a little girl. Now that I have a grandaughter and my mom has passed away, I am going to use the fabric to make crazy quilt Christmas ornanments for her. Maybe a new one each year, or maybe save some of the fabric for all the grandbabies still twinkling in the winter sky. Thanks for the inspiration.
