MCCall's Quilting Feathered Peacock and Northcott Banyan Batiks

Feeling stoked! I got my early edition of McCall's Quilting magazine. I knew one of my quilts was published in it, but I didn't realize that Timeless Treasures has a full page ad with my pattern. Double bragging rights!

The quilt on page 22 is using Northcott's beautiful new Banyan Batiks. Fantastic batiks to work with.

Timeless Treasures took out a full page ad featuring my quilt pattern "Through the Looking Glass"  using their Feathered Peacock line of fabric. Beautiful stuff!

We'll have kits for both quilts on our website and Etsy shops right away. and

Yippee! I love fabric!

One of my patterns "Carpenter's Square": the blue/gold one I made, the red/grey/black was made by my good friend BJ. I really like this pattern.

Quilts made by my staff (daughters) and me lately

Sheesh! What a busy life! Here are some pretties for all of you to look at. All are my own patterns. Most have kits. My daughters are helping a lot with my piecing these days. A couple of these were made by friends. Thanks friends and daughters!

My block in "100 Blocks" magazine

I am thrilled to have my block in the latest issue of "100 Blocks". It's on page 8, the first block in the magazine. Ha, ha! I am number 1! How cool is that? Here's the picture of my block.

I'll be giving away a pattern of mine (viewer's choice) to one lucky person leaving a comment. You can see all my patterns on our website: and keep up to date with new patterns as they are released on my facebook page:

Yo-yos rule! I also like Dresden type blocks. This is my first time making skinnier spokes in a Dreseden and having space between. This block remindied me of the Bachelor Buttons that grew wild around our house when I was a kid. My favorite color is blue, but not just any blue. It has to be a bright blue. Love the brights.  I had fun playing with these fabrics (Topsy Turvy by Northcott).

I've also attached a picture of our two new rescue kittens. They match the block and are wild and crazy, just like the fabric!

Thanks for visiting, and especially for commenting. Quilting is the best addiction one can have.

100 Blocks

Yay! I have another block published in the Super Great magazine 100 Blocks, Volume 14. It is on sale now. It's the most fun magazine. 100 original blocks and all the directions to make each block are included. If you want a copy and can't find one locally, send me an email and we can arrange delivery of the magazine to you.  Here is my block that is published in this volume. They named it "Blossom Burst". Page 8, the first block in the magazine. This is the EQ image, the "real" block has yo-yos around the outside (the green circles) and a yellow yo-yo in the center. I don't know where I saved my photo of the actual block. The actual block and instructions are included in 100 Blocks. So excited! Happy Dance! I'd love to have everyone on my Facebook page. Quilters have taken over Facebook!
Cheers! Karen Bialik, The Fabric Addict. It's only an addiction if you admit it!
