COVER!!


Well knock me over!
My STAR SPLITTER quilt is on the cover of the March April issue of Quiltmaker! Listed with Bonnie Hunter and Edyta Sitar!
KLUNK! I just fell on the floor!

I've had many requests for the pattern of this quilt for three years, and well, here it is!  I'm thrilled!!


This quilt had such a fun journey. How many of you remember reading about me making this quilt?
I started this quilt at A retreat I put together in Minnesota, with no plan at all, and it just grew and grew...If you have my book, 15 Minutes of Play, you can read about the journey there.
You can also see an old post about it here

Beatrice and I at the Empire Quilt show where it won  "Judges choice" and "2nd place machine quilting."


AND, this quilt is a cover girl TWICE! It's also the cover of my book!   You can buy a copy of my book signed, HERE.

(International shipping MUST email me for a invoice...)

    Dresden blog hop.
