New Quilt Design

Stars Over Indiana

I designed the blocks in
this quilt for the Stars
Over Indiana Shop Hop.
I them made them into a
quilt and pattern that should
be released this month.

I took the picture by
hanging the quilt from
the rain gutter of my
studio, that option worked
better than option 2 which
was place quilt on deck and
stand on top of hot tub to
snap the photo...  and no,
I won't use this photo
for the pattern cover.

These are the 6 shops
participating in the
Stars Over Indiana Shop Hop
July 8 - 13, 2011
The shops used the blocks
I designed and designed their
own quilts from them.  They
used Kansas Troubles fabrics
for their quilts.  You can see
and purchase kits for these
quilts at the Shop Hop.

Here are the 6 quilts,
I love how different
the quilts look even
when they have used
the same fabrics and
block designs.

I hope those who live close
by will be able to visit the
shops on the Shop Hop.  For
those who are far away visit
the websites of the great shops.

And look for the newest
American Homestead
pattern ~ coming soon.
Great for a Block of the Month
or Shop Hop blocks.


  1. Isn't it amazing how different the blocks look when they are used in such different settings!!!
