I’ve spotted a magical unicorn quilt!

Debbie Stubbs shared these pictures of the magical unicorn quilt that she made for her granddaughter, Avery, for her 4th birthday. Avery is a very lucky little girl! 

And look at that unicorn cake!

Thank you, Debbie, for sharing these pictures of your quilt. You made a wonderful quilt that Avery is sure to treasure.

Gail Wozniak emailed a photo of her almost finished Backyard Birds quilt top. Her top will be complete after a couple more circles and a little embroidery on my lady bug and butterfly.


Gail began this quilt in my class in May at Merrimack Valley Guild in Massachusetts. Congrats, Gail on a lovely quilt!

Lois Hall sent me photos of her fantastic Briar Rose quilt. Lois, thank you for sharing your quilt with us!


Here’s what Lois said:

This is a quilt that has been a work in progress for several years. It is FINALLY finished!  I completed the last of the hand quilting last month so I could use it as a table topper when I was hostess for my book club meeting in May. There were several comments (and pats on the back) which pleased me to no end, but most assuredly part of the credit goes to you for your beautiful design. Pictures attached show off this treasured piece of work!

Briar Rose is just one of the patterns in the Flowering Favorites ebook. Click here.

PS: Nothing against the members of my book club, but I’m not so sure that I would trust them not to spill on my quilt. Lois, you are a brave hostess :-).

Loa Kay Welles made her May Baskets quilt from our book, Curl Up Quilts, for her 6 year old granddaughter. Isn’t it cute!


Loa Kay changed the pattern, making more blocks and a bigger quilt and it turned out very well! If you would like to make your own May Baskets you can find the ePattern here, or the whole eBook here.

This cute quilt was made by Diane Pfeifley who sent me the photo and the story of her quilt. Isn’t is great!

I saw your “Welcome to the North Pole” design book many years ago on “Simply Quilts.” When I saw the design of the buildings all I thought was Whoville. My niece loves Dr. Seuss so after many years of thinking about this project I finally was able to put it together. This project I hand appliquéd and hand quilted.

The snowflakes came on a Christmas card. I peeled them off and put them in my embellishment stash. They were perfect for Whoville. I used the design in the blue background to echo quilt. In some places it looks like a ski run. Not intentional. I used buttons for door knobs and shell belt buckles for the windows in the doors.

You might wonder why there are several wildcats tucked here and there. My niece’s husband is a graduate of Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas. So the wildcats are for him as is the Whocat Alumni Center with KSU on the building.

Your designs were so unique and fun. I really enjoyed making this, even though it took me years of thinking about it before it finally “gelled”. Truly enjoyed using your designs. Now I’m thinking I need to use these patterns to make me a Santa version.

Thanks so much for your unique designs.

I love it!
