I am not one who likes to stick within the same style and technique- so I’ve gathered up what I think is an incredible year of designers.  Each of them brings to the group a new idea, inspiration and style with techniques to learn.

There are some who have been in books, magazines, they have online patterns and patterns in shops. Some have products as their own.  You name it– they collectively have a lot of experience in the quilting world!

Now- I haven’t personally met every one, but I really look forward to chatting with them individually for their podcast interview (you’ll have access to those!) and sharing their pattern to the members.

It really is going to be a great year.

In addition to the quilting designers there will be a new patterns each month– take a quick look:

Block of the Month- members are designing this one along with me!

Folk Art Sampler~  15″ X 21″

This is a mix of a traditional embroidery sampler with quilting with your favorites.  It will showcase who you are and a few of your favorites, where you are from and you’ll get to add your own special touch to it each month.

During the year we will be adding a row— your state flower, your home, pets, an alphabet, your name and date, fillers- like butterflies, fruit, flowers, patchwork blocks and button trees.
