SCRAPPY BY DESIGN

Just thought I would travel back in time and show you the very first quilt I ever designed. I called this one Scrappy Patches, and it won me a ribbon in the Block Party guild quilt show that I was in at the time, in Bellevue, WA. This was about ten years ago, and before we were blessed with so many wonderful reproduction fabrics. I find it interesting to note that the quilts that I design today are not unlike that first one. My preference in quilts has not changed, although I do believe I have learned quite a bit along the way.
The above picture is a portion of a quilt that I designed and just finished. It is off to the quilters! I am working on directions and can't wait to show you the finished quilt. This is just to, hopefully, whet your appetite. You might notice that RED is still my favorite color!

I have had a sudden influx of individual orders for the Indian Paintbrush pattern this weekend. After visiting a couple of my favorite bloggers, I discovered why. Karen, the Mistress of Leehaven, has posted her Indian Paintbrush quilt on her blog again today. Karen completed hers quite a while ago, and it is a beauty! Also, Mary at Quilt Hollow, just completed herIndian Paintbrush quilt, and has it on display for us. Be sure and take a look at both these blogs in case you haven't been there yet.  I should have mentioned this earlier, but the Olde Green Cupboard has been at the Paducah quilt show with lots of kits and patterns for Indian Paintbrush as well!  

Don't be left out of this ordering frenzy! Visit Patchalot Patterns web site and order your pattern today! I always honor Canadian customers with the same postage rate as US. 

As always,  stitch a little, Patchalot!

I visited a friend yesterday who was talking about your Indian Paintbrush pattrn. She had seen it on the two blogs you mentioned and plans to order it soon. And it is so good for you that Olde Green Cupboard kitted the pattern. What I like about the pattern is the nine patch blocks between the star points and the border that you chose. Okay, I am going to join the frenzy!

While you have stayed with your style, I have found that mine has changed considerably over the past few years. I have quite a choice of quilts for display and visitors are surprised each time that a new quilt gets finished. I love to visit your blog for inspiration and eye candy! :o)
