Old Home Quilt Patterns are designed to be made from fabric in your stash. The patterns are quick and forgiving. Each pattern makes a small quilt, suitable as a wall hanging or throw. The patterns also contain ideas for how you can create a larger quilt. And each pattern has a "Color Tip" that will help that quilt come alive.
I want you to be able to sew simply and serenely. I don’t want you worrying about too many details. I want your sewing to be forgiving. The patterns are more conversational than pedagogical. I will never have you cut up hundreds of little pieces and then have to organize them to sew them together. When things go wrong, I give you ways to use those mistakes to your advantage or correct them with grace.
My fantasy is that quilters will use what you have on hand – your stash! I like to imagine you walking into your sewing room, grabbing some fabric that appeals to you that day, and starting to sew. Watch my Stash Savvy Video to get some ideas for organizing your stash.
I also want you to tap into your own creativity. I want you to discover your inner artist. I'll give your color tips that will build your color confidence. The other thing is, my patterns are sew easy, you will start wondering why you didn't think of this yourself. That's intentional - I hope my patterns are a springboard for you to jump off and create even more beautiful quilts.
