They’re back from the printer & ready to ship!

New patterns that use my new Tiny Dresden template.

Suzn+Quilts+Tiny+Bits+of+Dresden+Stocking#231+RGB

A 10″ stocking, that’s a cute as can be (if I must say so myself!)

These are quick & easy.

Completely by machine except for the hand work to stitch the binding.

Also using Tiny Dresden plates,

A+Joyful+Christmas+#229+Cover+w+bleed+11-16-14+RGB

make either the runner or wall quilt with adorable little angels.

“A Joyful Christmas” was stitched by hand with perle cotton,

the rest was all done by machine.

I even sew my buttons on by machine.

 I can’t wait to see what other color combinations these are made into.

Lastly, incorporating both my tiny & mini Dresden plates,

Suzn+Quilts+Dresden+Heaven#230+RGB

Dresden Heaven.

I absolutely love this quilt!

I used fat quarters, but you can use charm squares & layer cakes along with yardage.

A shop ordered these yesterday and she’s going to use the new Downton Abbey collection.

I can’t wait to see it!

Check your local quilt shop or my website to get yours today.

Sew them for Christmas, or put them on your Christmas list!

Until next time,

Susan

Suzn+Quilts+Patterns+Tiny+Dresden+ImagesNew Tiny Dresden Plate patterns are now at the printer

and they’re available for pre-order on my website.

If you look back at our booth photos from market,

you can see these quilts.

We took pre-orders

for these at Houston market last month,

and I’ve finally finished

-photography

-instruction writing &

-cover designs.

It’s a lot of work getting designs into pattern form.

I’m fortunate though that I can work around my family life.

I wear so many hats!

(Figuratively, not literally because hats & curls don’t mix!)

I’m really excited about the angel I designed for “A Joyful Christmas.”

A+Joyful+Christmas+#229+Cover+w+bleed+11-16-14+RGBThe pattern includes designs for

a 16-1/2″ x 48″ table runner

& a 29″ x 36″ wall quilt.

Both have 4″ Tiny Dresden Plates stacked to form a Christmas tree,

perle cotton embroidery &

an angel or two, who’s wings are also Dresden petals!

How can you resist?

I know, I’m so clever… just a piddler really.

Give me some fabric & my brain starts dreaming.

As I was drafting the illustrations for these patterns,

my brain was getting even more ideas for quilts.

I can’t help it!

Next is “Tiny Bits of Dresden Christmas Stocking”

 Suzn+Quilts+Tiny+Bits+of+Dresden+Stocking#231+RGB

These also use my 4″ Tiny Dresden Plates,

but you don’t sew a whole plate.

Rather, you make the petals then assemble partial plates

& put them in various places on a smallish 10″ Christmas stocking.

If it looks a bit familiar,

 Suzn+Quilts+Bits+of+Dresden+Christmas+Stocking#185+RGB

you might be remembering it’s bigger version,

“Bits of Dresden Christmas Stocking”

that uses my Mini Dresden Plate Template.

This stocking is a generous 21″ tall.

And finally…

“Dresden Heaven”

 Suzn+Quilts+Dresden+Heaven#230+RGBI’m not sure I’ve liked a quilt more…

but I have a habit of my favorite quilt being the one I just completed.

I showed you the progression of these Dresden plates here

with the help of my new sewing mate.

I dreamed up the design last summer while working on my

Tiny Dresden Series.

I wanted a quilt that showcased both my

new Tiny Dresden Plate Template &

my Mini Dresden Plate Template.

I ordered the lovely

“Heart’s Content” collection by Laundry Basket Quilts from Moda,

then I started sewing…

Tamara Struckoff did a wonderful job of machine quilting it full of feathers

& my photographer did a great job of capturing its good side.

 What can I say?

I absolutely love it and given another fabulous fabric collection,

I could see myself making another one of these!

Don’t dare count those TD’s.

Just buy the pattern & templates (if you don’t already own them)

& just start sewing!

I hope you’re in love too.

These & all of my patterns are on my website

if you can’t find them at your local quilt shop.

Until next time,

Susan

I’m excited to next show you a new addition to my Quilt-as-you-go patterns.

You probably remember my best-selling pattern,

A Pretty Package?

Suzn+Quilts+A+Pretty+Pkg+Winterlude+complete

Well, when taking it to market & other venues the last couple of years,

I’ve had many inquiries asking to have a table runner adaptation.

Suzn+Quilts+A+Pretty+Table+#214+Cover

Not only did I do this, but I also designed place mats to coordinate.

Meet A Pretty Table!

What do you think?

I’ve made the lap quilt in non-Christmas colors for birthdays,

and I’ve also received lots of emails from quilters that made it for other occasions too.

Mother’s Day, retirement, etc.

It’s now available on my website.

Think outside the box!

Until next time,

Susan
