Settler's Puzzle

Early, early Wednesday morning, I'll be boarding a plane for Brigham City, UT, to spend time with lots of wonderful quilters while giving a lecture and three workshops for the Village Dry Goods quilt shop.  This is one of my most favorite things to do...I love it.  The quilt above is a new design called Settler's Puzzle, and I'll be teaching it for the first time.  I love this quilt and it seems to be very popular with all of you as well.   I'll be teaching this quilt in workshops all this year, and so it won't be available for purchase on my website until the end of the year.  The only way to get the pattern is to join me in a workshop!  There will be several opportunities spread out all over the country throughout the year, so stay tuned for more news about that.

Adding tons of loveliness to this quilt is the talent from quilter extraordinaire, Linda Hrcka of The Quilted Pineapple.   I just have to show you the creativity in stitching Linda did on my Settler's Puzzle quilt.  The following photos were taken by Linda, and I'll let her work speak for itself.  













Did you sit there with your jaw dropped open like I did?  Needless to say, I'm thrilled with how the entire quilt turned out.  Please visit Linda's blog for the details on how she chose the quilting designs and what batting she used.  She'll be posting about Settler's Puzzle soon, and it's a real treat to see all of the quilts she does.

  5. I knew from the very first photo that Linda had done the quilting--she is an amazing talent! I love the quilt--it like the light chain and pinwheels against the darker background.
