Christine Porter hosted a workshop from my new book, Quick Diamond Quilts. I flew from California to London, rode in a bus fromĀ London to Bristol. Following a few brief hours of sleep, we gathered with terrific quilters who sewed Stone Mosaic quilts.

Christmas Eve

Wednesday, December 24th, 2008

May your celebration be from the heart!

I love these two pieced Log Cabin Christmas tree quilts, both made by my dear friend Darlene Shubert in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. The pattern is the same – one is homey and comforting in red, tan and forest green. The other has more of a victorian flair with the sparkle of tissue lame and “found” bits of un-used jewelry, pins, and single earrings. Original pattern designer (if other than Darlene) is unknown.

Marge Abel’s Diamond Quilt

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

In 2005 I taught a Diamond Landscape workshop at Asilomar in Pacific Grove, CA. Marge Abel was in the workshop, and designed her own quilt from a photographic inspiration. Here are photos of her work in progress, and Marge’s finished piece (fall, 2008). Great work, Marge! Congratulations!
