Almost finished my armchair's been a challenge for me as I haven't sewn something like that before. Thanks so much for the pattern...after my initial freak-out over the embrodiery, I think I'm doing OK. Actually, so well that I'm going to make up two or more for Christmas gifts! Thanks for your swap encouragement!

Hi Helen, I love your inovation and this pattern is very compatable with Patterns from Amy Butler, an American fabric designer.


Oh...this is a HAPPY quilt...thanks Helen for designing this one... such a blessing in all this Autumn weather... a "Springish"...quilt!!!


This is a beautiful quilt and I would be honored to win it. Thank you for offering it to us. I'm sure that if I don't win, I'll be buying the pattern.
On a side note, about those scrapped versions 1 and 2. Would you be interested in donating them to my church's Hugs Ministry? We make quilts and pair them with a stuffie so that the local fire department and sheriff's department can give them to kids in crisis situations. If you would like more info, please e-mail me. Thank you. Take care and God bless, Cory

    Colourque (R) is a techique I developed and use on many of my projects. It is nothing scientific, anyone can do it, it is meant to be fun and easy to do... it is simply using coloured pencils on fabric to get an applique effect. 'Faux Applique' a comprehensive technique book on the method is due for release late November. Watch this space!
