Jingle Patch is part of the Patch Pals Collection and appears in Nov/Dec '12.

In that same issue, we featured Jingle Patch. He’s the final character in QM’s Patch Pals Collection. I showed this quilt during a recent guild program, and someone suggested we name him Foggy Patch. I thought that was brilliant!

Dresden Delight appears in the Nov/Dec '12 issue of Quiltmaker.

This is Dresden Delight, also from Nov/Dec ’12. These colors suggest the holidays, but it would be fun in blues and white, or pastels, or any number of color combinations.

The Santa’s in Stitches stocking was an opportunity to use decorative machine stitches. Wouldn’t this snowy stocking look great on the mantel?

Polar Patch from the Nov/Dec '11 Quiltmaker

And of course there was Polar Patch. I just adore this little penguin pair. Super easy to make with mostly squares and half-square triangles.

Snow Globe Village appeared in Nov/Dec '10.

Snow Globe Village appeared in Nov/Dec ’10. This quilt brings back memories for me—how about you? I still love to pick up a snowglobe and shake it.

Starlit Forest is patterned in the Nov/Dec '10 Quiltmaker.

We made Starlit Forest as a group project for a co-worker who was beginning a new career as a nurse. The pattern is in Quiltmaker’s Nov/Dec ’10 issue.

Flip Flop Ornaments: Use the Jan/Feb '10 issue along with the Nov/Dec '10 issue to make this quilt.

And Flip Flop Ornaments concluded a string of Flip Flop quilts we designed. The silvery purples, blues and grays are cool as a cucumber. The instructions for Flip Flop quilts are in Jan/Feb ’10; the ornament itself is in Nov/Dec ’10 (you need both).
