Meet Abigail!


This is Abigail Pin's, a new pattern featuring both of my new fabric collections (for Marcus Fabrics), Pin Money and Prairie Wovens, Dobbies, and Chambray!!  Abigail's Pins is a fun scrappy quilt with easy piecing, available in two sizes...the large quilt measures 82" x 94" and the smaller version is 59" x 71".    If you're thinking of attending my classes at Buggy Barn this coming August, this quilt is the project for one of the classes as it will make for a fun class with good techniques to learn.  The photo doesn't do this quilt justice (photos never do, huh!).  It will be in the Marcus Fabrics booth at quilt market, just in case you're headed there.  Please look for this pattern at your local quilt shop, and if you can't find it there, you can order a pattern right from my website.  But...please do support your local shop by asking for it there first.  

I sure hope you like Abigail...I'm very fond of her!


The Pins & Needles quilt is also headed to quilt market next week.  You may remember I showed some of the blocks in a previous post.  


Well, here are some photos of the quilt just as my friend Ronda finished quilting it. 


My friend Debbie (who works with me) pieced this quilt and she did a wonderful job.  Again, these photos just don't do justice to the quilt.


I think Ronda chose perfect quilting designs for it.  

   
Here's a look at the back of the quilt.  So, so lovely!  Thanks to my pals Debbie and Ronda for lending their talents to making this quilt.  Remember, Pins & Needles is a FREE downloadable pattern.  Click here to get the pattern for yourself!

While these quilts are headed to Spring Market in Portland, OR next week....alas...I am not.  I am  doing something else that may prove to be just as much fun.  I will really miss seeing everyone at market, and seeing all the new stuff, but I'm doing something I've wanted to do for years.....I'll tell ya what I'm up to on Friday!

  16. I love both the Abigail's Pins and the Pins and Needles quilts. The colors are fabulous. The dark background and sashing fabrics set off the other colors so well. Thank you for sharing the pattern for Pins and Needles. I've got to start raiding my stash for the perfect fabrics for it.
