American Quilt Collection

 

Shown here are my most current - as well as my most popular - quilt designs.

You can see many more of my  Classic American Quilts in the OTHER COLLECTIONS tab listed above.

 

These quilt designs feature variegated cotton threads such as Caron Collection's "Watercolours".  They are worked on 18 ct. mono needlepoint canvas with coordinating DMC #5 pearl cottons.  These designs can also be worked on 24 Ct. Congress Cloth with variegated silk or cotton threads for a smaller and more elegant interpretation.

 

These patterns are designed for stitchers to create their own color combinations.  Just as no two quilts are made the same by different quilters, these quilt patterns can be changed and adapted to your specific color choices and needs.  And stitching the same pattern in different colorways can create entirely different looking quilts..... They also make great gift projects and are fast, easy and fun to stitch!
