Quilting Whimsy Available Now....

September is here, and my new collection of quilting designs for your embroidery module is available now!  "Quilting Whimsy" includes animals, feathers, ferns and fronds, even more contemporary starbursts and other designs, something for all your projects.  They can be used as quilting or as outline embroidery, you decide, you pick the thread weight to make them work for you.

It is multi-format, so you can use it in many brands of machines, and get the right delivery system.

Bernina has done a wonderful heirloom quilt with the rabbit designs on an ivory silk radiance fabric and gives you the directions on their website.  Go to and scroll down to see what's in my collection.

Nina's quilt "Bunny, Oh Bunny" is found in the embroidery section at

I saw it at Wisconsin Quilt Expo a week ago, a wonderful quilt show, some inspiring quilts, and great friends.  My sister Mary and her friends from Small Town Quilters in Mercer, WI came to the event and I spent some time with them.  Below, Elizabeth, Nancy, Mary, and Toots, all in their custom embroidered red tees so they were easy to spot. 


Hope you are enjoying fall, getting back to some quilting.  It's been a long miserable summer here, so the first signs of color in the leaves, cool mornings, insects humming are all so welcome.

I went to a quilt show in Cincinnati last weekend, and the carpet in the area was I swear your bouncing bananas. I thought I was lost in a maze of bouncing bananas on the floor and kept going over and over and over the shape and hey, by jove I think I've got it!

Wow Marty, sort of psychedelic? I never had seen this design when I began quilting it, so interesting it is appearing in other places too. I imagine it might be in cave paintings? The tricky part for me was explaining to others how to do it.

I saw your ME designs at the San Diego Quilt Show. Lovely. I so want to spend more time playing with them. I can think of all sorts of ways to use them. Delightful.

SewCalGal - thanks! I can't wait to receive mine and try them. There is a nice assortment of styles in this collection and I do think you could create some incredibly whimsical designs, or formal ones, or very casual ones too. I wanted this to be versatile for the purchase price for all the quilting via embroidery machine users out there. And garment sewers too, these look great on clothing.
