My first post

Here's my blog.  It's open to anyone.  Mostly I will be blogging about my quilty pleasures.

I am a designer of quilt patterns. I design mostly for Northcott fabrics ( and also have been published in a couple of magazines.  We sell my patterns and kits made from my patterns through our website .  We also sell wholesale to shops around the world.

All of our patterns are available in pdf to download, or as hard copy to be mailed out.

My favourite pattern is called "Sunburst"  The pattern retails for just $4.98:

Here are links to some of my most recent patterns that I have designed for Northcott. All are available through our website :

Multi-sized pattern using Northcott's "Peacock Paradise" fabric designed by Deborah Edwards

An over-sized Queen quilt using "Le Belle" - Raven by Northcott:

Multi-sized pattern using "Christmas Classics" fabric designed by Deborah Edwards

Multi-sized pattern featuring "Geisha" fabric designed by Deborah Edwards.  We have made this quilt from many different fabrics, all with striking results:

From "Stone Strips" Stonehenge fabrics I designed three quilts:

Another multi-sized pattern that looks great with any fabric.  This pattern features the fabric "Kimonos" designed by (who else?) Deborah Edwards for Northcott:

Proud to be Canadian?  Make up this quilt using "Oh Canada" fabric designed by Linda Ludovico Stonehenge by Northcott:

Coming soon: "Flight of Fancy" using Anastasia fabric designed by Jane Spolar for Northcott

One of the most beautiful fabrics ever made is featured here - "Cardinal Christmas" by Deborah Edwards.  This patterns has a large and lap and a queen sized quilt.  Pattern is called "Songbird Serenade"

"Water Garden" shows off the fabric line "Hamilton Grove" by Sue Beevers:

My very favourite pattern yet.  This is a sample type of quilt.  EAch house has a different 6" block inside that can be customized to the interests of your family. This quilt will truly become a family heirloom.  The pattern is called "Love at Home" (its called "Love of Home" on Northcott's webiste).  The fabric line featured in this beautiful quilt is "Mulberry Lane" by Sue Beevers

Like horses?  This is a great quilt for the horse lover.  Made using "Stonhenge Canyon Ridge" by Linda Ludovico for Northcott.  This is "Attic Window Twist" because it is an "Attic Windows" done in an original way.

Well, this is a very long post.  I'd better head to bed.  In 40 minutes it will be my birthday.  I need my beauty rest so that I don't look a year older tomorrow!
