Here is a FREE pattern for you! It celebrates my first fabric collection with RJR – Flutter. All applique is fused and blanket stitched. The adorable birds are broiderie perse (which means the birdies are simply cut from the main fabric and blanket stitched on the edges) and the square on square blocks can be paper pieced for assured accuracy. This quilt will spice up any environment as you fluff your stuff in your own creative nest. Call your local quilt shop for availability.
It’s time to jump on the quilting bandwagon – first check and see if there is a local quilt shop in your area. They will gently guide you through your first quilting experience. Another option is to take advantage of my Start Quilting Book or DVD – either way I want to personally welcome you into the fabulous and ever changing world of quilting! Also please take advantage of www.thequiltshow.com – the worlds largest online quilt resource. Until we meet….and we quilters do get around!

People have asked me to keep them updated with my quilting journey. The updates will include travels, projects, insights and all things quiltie – and perhaps an occasion picture of Sparrow. To do this, I have signed up with a new email delivery service. If you would like to receive these emails (about once a month) and you are not already signed up for the old newsletter, please use the form below:
I look forward to meeting you soon – and we quilters do get around!
It’s time to play and create at Alden Lane.
