So glad to see the holidays behind me. I've already accomplished more in 2020, than I did in all the last few months of last year. Working on new patterns that I will be sharing as the samples are made and tops are quilted. It's officially my "Quilting Season" so I hope to get a lot accomplished before time to mow the grass. I'm inside today watching it snow. Good quilting weather!

To close out 2019, I added one last pattern. And, surprise, it wasn't a quilt pattern!  It is DIY Gift Bags.

All you will need is fat quarters and scraps from your fabric stash to make your own gift bags.  They are fun to make, reusable, and great for using up scraps. Establish traditions with family and friends and use these bags over and over again for Christmas, birthdays, wedding and baby showers, hospital visitations, hostess gifts, and other gift giving occasions. 

First and last pages of the pattern are shown below. There are 19 pages of instructions that show you how to make 4 different bags designs in virtually any size you want. Scalable charts included for each design.

This is a downloadable pattern. Click HERE to purchase and download.

Double Ohio Star pattern. There are so many different looks you can get with this pattern just by moving fabrics around. Have fun with a brand new way to make Ohio Star blocks - no more hour glass units to make.


Pinwheel in a Square pattern. Make this pretty pinwheel in four different sizes: 4", 6", 8", or 10". Great for small projects or large quilts.
