If you have read my profile, you know that I teach quilt classes, and design and sell my own patterns. I love quilts and I enjoy the patterns and designs of many popular quilters. I also love vintage quilts and draw lots of inspiration from them. My purpose in creating this blog is NOT to advance my pattern sales. I do show my designs on this site because that is what I have made or am working on. I enjoy seeing what other quilters are making and I enjoy sharing my stuff with you. I will always try to identify the quilt designer when I display a quilt. I want to give credit to them. I may not mention it if I am the designer. That feels awkward to me. I am not a good self-promoter, but that is OK. I am happy where I am, doing what I like to do. If you would like to look at my patterns, please go to my web site, www.patchalotpatterns.com. Most of my designs were made with classes in mind. They are not difficult, and they are based on traditional patterns. If you want to try your hand at one of my designs without buying a pattern, go for it. That is what quilters have been doing for generations. If you want to show it on your blog, I will feel complimented! If you want to otherwise publish it, then I will be ticked! Having said that, My Happy Place, and those patriotic quilts that I posted are my designs. Buy 'em or try 'em, if you want to. Any questions, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for reading this. I know it is more fun with pictures! I'll post some later!
