I love all the new patterns because who doesn’t love little tiny houses.

the Dresden Village is my favorite though

because you have little tiny houses, little people and Dresden!

How can anyone resist wanting to make it.

I have 6 new patterns for you!

3 of my new patterns are table runner/placemat patterns.

They’re quick & easy because they use my unique

Quilt-as-you-sew technique.

In case you’ve not tried one of my popular quilt-as-you-sew (go) patterns,

you should know…

  1. You cut your backing & batting to the finished size of the quilt.
  2. You baste the two together. I prefer basting spray, but pins will work too.
  3. Following my instructions, you use this as a “foundation” to sew all of the strips onto.
  4. Once all of the strips are sewn onto the foundation you might have a bit of fusible applique to add (depending on which pattern you choose).
  5. Bind the quilt & it’s finished!

 

2 Hearts As One

is just in time for Valentine’s Day sewing

or perhaps a wedding or anniversary gift.

Stars & Stripes Forever

will look great on your

or your friend’s table for all of the patriotic holidays.

Star Spangled Dresdens

is not only Quilt-as-you-sew,

but it also incorporates my Tiny Dresden plates!

You’ll make the Tiny Dresden plates,

applique them onto a strip then add the strip to the foundation.

It will also look great on your table for our patriotic holidays.

Next, because I love Jelly Rolls of 2 1/2″ strips & I like quick & easy quilts,

I designed

Jellyroll Joyride

just for me, but I hope you enjoy it too.

Use an ENTIRE jelly roll to quickly make this lap quilt.

Reserving 6 strips for the binding and sewing the rest of them onto

the foundation you can make this entire quilt in just a day!

You’re going to want to make lots of these for gifts.

They’re the perfect size for kids to cuddle up in while watching TV or lap quilts for friends.

Lollipop Tree

is a cutie that uses my Tiny Dresden plates.

This quilt will look cute in non-Christmas colors too.

And last, but not least,

God’s Peace

is a sweet quilt that speaks to my heart,

with a bible verse reminding me not to be so stressed out!

Just 1 Tiny Dresden plate,

a bit of fusible web applique

& a bit of perle cotton embroidery make this cutie.

I’m putting them on my website today.

Snow is on its way here.

I plan to get some sewing time in.

How about you?

It’s been a busy year here so far in the land of Suzn Quilts.

I have a dozen new patterns that we introduced at

Spring International Quilt Market.

It was practically in our backyard at the St. Louis convention center.

It was nice not having travel across the country to get to the show,

but oddly enough it didn’t really feel like I was at market since it was so close.

The best part (besides being with my daughter, Chloe, & my market friends)

was not having to worry about fitting everything into 4 suitcases

that weigh no more than 50 lbs. each+ 2 carry-ons.

The down side of that was more work for us since I decided we could have a bigger booth since we didn’t have to travel!

That also meant more “fluff” to bring to display with!

But, I loved the way that our booth turned out.

Between market shoppers we were able to visit with our market friends that are scattered around the country.

Diane & her sister, Linda of Puffin & Company.

They have lovely quilting and sewing tools to help those who enjoy hand work.

Celine & Molly of Perkins Dry Goods.

Celine has more beautiful patterns for those that love patchwork.

Susan of The Quilt Branch (Karen her helper had to leave early to attend a graduation).

Susan has lots of cute new designs to use that Creative Grids “House” ruler that you already have!

& we have lots of new patterns to show you!

So, stay tuned &

Just Keep Sewing…
