Quilters Affair 2014

Quilters Affair 2014

Quilters Affair street-462x306

I am so sorry that I didn’t post about this sooner!! I just found out that three of my  classes for the Quilters Affair this summer for the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show are already full.
The good news is there is time for you to get in the other two classes still…..Both of which are my own patterns (soon to be available as a downloadable PDF….)

I am so excited about this great event. I taught there in 2012 and it was a blast!!

So here’s a quick blurb on the two classes left open….

Monday  July 7th — Flame On!

Flame on!

This  is the one pattern I taught there in 2012 from my very, very delayed book that I have been working on forever!! (and I am doing a sample of it in “cool” colors as well to show you that is has great potential in any palette) It is available again as this pattern (the book is finally back on track this year, after a two year “holding pattern” (no pun intended…well, slightly intended)

And Friday July 11th — New Glory

New Glory

I designed this quilt for the Quilted in Honor project that is touring the country right now.  I think that design is a fun, strong one even if you don’t use red, white, and blue.  I am hoping to whip it up in spring/summery colors before this summer to show how different it can look in another palette.


And here are the classes that are full, but I am sure you might be able to get on a waiting list??  (next year, I will try to get these posted earlier so you have more of a chance to get in!!)

Tuesday July 8th — Painted Forest

Oh, I cannot tell you how much I am sorry I didn’t get to post about this before it filled up….Such a joy to create and so simple and versatile.

Wednesday July 9th — Fireworks

NLC Fireworks

This one is from the book Not Your Grandmothers Log Cabin and the only one that is not my own design. But it is always popular. I taught it in 2012 to a sold out class too…..way easier than it looks too and a great lesson in color and value.

and Thursday July 10th — Beauty in the Bark

Beauty in the Bark

I just love this one so much! Great exploration of value and color. Totally based on my love of birch trees and aspens and this print by Valori Wells.

So yeah…that’s it…I still have so much to share with you…and so little time it seems….but keep coming back. I have some giveaways coming up, and some more catching up with some fabrics from this last fall to share with you…Love, love this place where we can “get together” and enjoy this current golden age of quilting….I am hoping it lasts a really long time, don’t you??


  • Oh, I love the Painted Forest! So original. It looks nothing like any quilt I’ve ever seen! Is this one a pattern or just a class?

    Hey Laura, the pattern will be available soon…..Hopefully by March 15th!!

    Wow Scott! Painted Forest is truly a beauty. I really love it and I am not surprised that the class is already full. Wish I could be there.

    I love your Beauty in the Bark quilt. I was lucky enough to see your New Glory quilt in person while it was on tour. I was able to attend the Sister’s quilt show once, and have always wanted to go back!

  • Love Painted forest, but really can’t travel across two countries to take a quilt class no matter how much I love it. (hubby wouldn’t approve). It would be great to be there though.

  • Oh, I love Painted Forest! It’s so wonderful, like from a fairytale.

    I am very interested in the painted forest pattern also. If possible can you email when it becomes available? Many thanks.

    Hey Pamela,
    I will definitely post here on the blog when they are available to purchase!

    I too love the painted trees, but am enamored of the birch tree quilt. I think it’s now on my ‘must make’ list. Thanks for sharing the beautiful pictures.

    Is the pattern for Beauty in the Bark available yet? I have a friend who loves birches, and I would like to make this quilt for her. Hope you can direct me to a site where I may purchase the pattern. Thank you!
