A few years ago I bought a Fatquater bundle of gorgeous orange and terracotta civil war reproductions. I had a pumpkin theme in mind. But somehow I never got started...until I saw this amazing living room my friends created. On a black tiled floor stood a huge terracotta sofa. All of a sudden I had this vision of orange charms and dark framing. To add a bit of sparkle some yellow and cream toned charms were introduced. The quilt finally got rather big and the quilting was quite a job.

I am super excited to introduce Picket Fence to you! She is the second in my budding line of quilt patterns! Picket Fence is a versatile pattern that looks great in many fabric collections! Sweet pastels or bold, masculine prints are perfect for Picket Fence. The cover quilt is lap size in PB&J by Basic Grey. The pink, yellow and green version is the original Picket Fence in Spring quilt from 2012, making it up as I sewed. This quilt is the reason I named the pattern Picket Fence; it reminded me of a white picket fence on a lovely spring day, thus the name, Picket Fence in Spring. Recently I was asked about the pattern through my Etsy shop, and I decided it was time to write it! This pattern is layer cake friendly and comes with instructions for six sizes from wall hanging to king! The pattern includes fabric requirements for using layer cake squares or yardage. It also includes mock-ups of all sizes in various fabric collections so you can see what each size looks like when finished.

This is a pattern by Esther Aliu. It is machine appliqued. It was a challenge, but I think it was worth it. I made it in these colors attempting to have it look like an 1800’s quilt. My daughter wants it but she’ll need to wait awhile as I am going to hang it in my house first!
I made this quilt from a pattern by Jackie Frost, Ann Wendinger and Cindy Wendinger which A dear friend who is experiencing great challenges in her life is the recipient of this quilt. I hope the biblical verse gives her inspiration as she copes with those challenges.
I made this quilt with the purpose of learning to make half square triangles.....I mastered them!! Then donated the quilt to Princess Margaret Children's Hospital, Perth WA where donated quilts are given to children who have illness requiring regular hospital stays. These children are then able to take their special quilts with them for every hospital stay.
