Friendship Crossing. A new quilt pattern I designed, which is available in Jan/Feb 2024 issue of McCall’s Quilting Magazine. It is inspired by E. B. White’s novel “Charlotte’s Web”. Friendship are a blessing and during this Thanksgiving Holiday I wanted to take a moment to say how it is so great to have all the wonderful friendships in my life. Every one is unique and different, which makes life so fun and enjoyable.
This quilt symbolizes the love that is shared with family, friends, and loved ones. It was inspired by the beautiful red and green antique quilts I admire. I thought this would be a nice opportunity to design a holiday quilt using gentle hues of reds and greens, which would not only be enjoyed through the holiday season but also into February for Valentine’s Day.”

Our challenge was to design a medallion style quilt. I am posting mine on the last day of the year for a reason. As we all know we all have the same amount of time given to us. Time is one of those commodities to make choices on how we want to use it. Time is of the present. The quilt I designed for you is a modern representation of a circle of time inside the walls of the present. I know there will be more time outside those walls but for know I need to focus on the present. I can still dream about the time in the future but I will always be pulled back to the middle to find the balance I need to have a creative and happy life.
