Clarissa's Garden Quilt

Some of you may remember this little quilt from The American Schoolgirl Club, a series of patterns I designed about a year or so ago. It's one of my favorites. One of my goals is to have another pattern series like that sometime, perhaps later this year. Good idea? The American Schoolgirl Club - The Sequel, LOL. More darling scrappy little quilts with an antique touch. Maybe a little bit of applique too because, you know, I'm doing a little more applique these days and it seems that many of you like that in your little quilts. I'm going to be travelling around to guilds doing lectures and workshops quite a bit this spring, so we'll see if I have time and energy to actually do this.


This particular pattern was very popular and sold out quickly after I ended the Club and had a few patterns left over. Some of you have asked me if I was ever going to reprint the pattern. I'm happy to say it's now going to be available again. I was going to get it printed up last week, but, well, you know how it is - things happen, I get busy. Or, I work out and then have to lie down and take a nap, LOL. Sheesh, remind me to stop getting older . . . . I promise it will be printed up shortly though. If not this week, then early next week for sure. So keep watching my website. It will be up there soon. Get your scraps ready!



Oh, and don't forget - I am also teaching a workshop to make this little quilt at the Grout Museum Cabin Fever Quilt Retreat on Feb 3 in Waterloo, Iowa. I am not organizing this, just teaching, so check with the museum, not me, to see if there are still spots available in any of the classes. I know this retreat is going to be a lot of fun and I'm really looking forward to it, assuming the weather is good enough that I can actually get to Iowa in February . . . .

This was one of my favourite quilts to make in that series, and like you am trying to get a little more friendly with my applique!!!
Glad to hear you are thinking of producing another series, I loved the first one, something nice to look forward later in the year. Hope your retreat goes well, wish I could attend one with you, but alas! the distance.......

I love this one. I have the pattern from the club but didn't get to this one. It's gorgeous. I love all of your quilts....I must do this one!

Yes, applique is great in the little quilts. So lovely and in smaller quilts not too overwhelming :D

I'm absolutely game for another set of patterns this year! Too bad I'm not a famous quilty lady like you, I have half of them done already all I'd need is the pattern made! I'm crossing my fingers you really will have a new series this fall!

I just love your work and I can't wait to get that pattern. I love it! Wish I could be in Iowa. I would love to take one of your classes.

Your quilt is so pretty and fresh looking.

Looking forward to you coming to IA and hoping the weather cooperates. I am looking forward to making this quilt as I did not get this pattern when it was available before....see you soon.

I've just found your blog. Don't know why I didn't find it before as your books have been inspiring me for years! Wish I lived there so I could come to your classes but I'll make do with your latest books and blog. Thank you for all the wonderful ideas! xx

Precious!! I am so enjoying your site! Today I am perusing your archived posts to find ideas for making some quilts for the NICU at the local military hospital. I thought this would be a good place to start! Thanks for all of the inspiration. ~karen
