Coming soon...to a quilt magazine near you

I am happy to announce that not one, but two of my designs will be included in the December 2012 issue American Patchwork & Quilting.  It is always an honor to be part of this beautiful publication.

Yes, I realize it is still September, but this issue will be arriving soon.  You need time after all to make some red and white ornaments before Christmas.  In my home, I display dozens of these red and white ornaments on a white feather tree.  Check out the magazine for another pretty display idea.

Or maybe you would like to try this little quilt, inspired by a pair of antique Pennsylvania patchwork pillowcases in my collection.

No rules here as far as I am concerned.  Start in the center with a half-square triangle and build your blocks from there.
