A New Pattern

I am so excited--I published my first pattern! If someone had told me a year ago that I would be writing and publishing patterns, I never would have believed them. Funny how things happen.

AND, I've already sold some to my fabulous local quilt shop!

AND, my friend, Anita, is taking them to the Mobile, Alabama quilt show this weekend. Am I a lucky girl or what?!

What started out as a photo of a single gerbera daisy, became this:

an art quilt. And, when I decided to do craft shows and needed to make some things to sell, it became this:

I've had so many positive responses to my table toppers/placemats, but don't sell a lot of them. At our own quilt show in March, a lot of people asked for a pattern. So, here it is and here I am, in a place I never thought I would be, but one that feels good.

My next big project is to open an Etsy Store. I'll let you know when I'm all set to go.

Oh, and if you're in the Atlanta area on Friday, I'll be at the Artist's Walk in Marietta, in front of Doodlebugz--hope to see you there!


  1. Congratulations!! It is so exciting, indeed!! I just retired from designing patterns, and there you are... taking my place.. haha, and keeping the numbers up. You GO girl!!
