Below are rough images of two new patterns that I am almost finished writing. Starry, Starry Night, the first quilt is made using 'Modern Muddle' fabrics by Karen Combs, and are available from Button Tree Quilts right now! The pattern will be available by Wednesday 28th March 2012.
I have also been asked to teach this as a class, so watch this space for details or contact Kate.

Kate at Button Tree Quilts asked me to teach a class on how to turn a panel from ordinary to outstanding! Class to be held on the 21st April, 2012. Contact Kate at Button Tree Quilts for further details.

This quilt was pieced and quilted for a customer recently. I loved reading the Hungry Caterpillar stories to my classes when I was teaching, so I really went to town! I quilted caterpillar's around the inner sashing and hand embroidered eyes on the front and reverse.
