Thank you for designing this lovely quilt pattern. I usually design my own quilts, but this was exactly what I wanted and the math was already figured out! It's also nice to see traditional quilt patterns. While I love the speed and straightforward construction of modern quilts and have made quite a few, I still love the traditional blocks the best.

I just wanted to show you my finished Candy Jars pattern.
I love it! Thanks so much for your beautiful pattern.

Shelia sent me this photo of her version of my Stripped Kimono pattern. She enjoy making it and loved the way it turned out for her oriental sun room.
Kathleen sent me these photo of her version of the Stripped Kimono pattern. She used a large motif fabric for the center of the kimono and she beaded the edges of the plain fabrics. Lovely work Kathleen. Thanks so much for sending me the photos.
Congratulations to Martha Green as the winner of one of my patterns for the Quilt Woman Blog Hop.
This is part of the Quilt Woman Water Blog Hop. At the end of this blog, find out how you can win a free pattern.
One way is the use strips of different fabrics. The Dolphin Family Dive pattern uses 6 strips with the value from light to dark to give the impression of depth to the water.
This Turtles Riding the Waves pattern uses 7 strips varying the value from light to dark.
This Turtles Up and Down pattern use one fabric for the water. The fabric looks like water with the horizontal lines and the changes in value.
This Turtle Frolic pattern uses strips which are cut apart and moved up and down to create the water. Again the fabric values move from light to dark.
This orca whale quilt uses fabric squares in values from medium to dark to create the water.
This humpback whale pattern uses fabric squares and in this case the values go from light to dark.
This fish pattern uses the strips in a vertical way varying the colors from blue to green.
This loon pattern uses horizontal strips varying the value and the loons look like they are tucked in the water.
As you can see there are different ways to create the look of water using strips, squares or whole pieces of fabrics.
If you'd like to be in the running for one of my patterns (winner's choice!), please leave a comment on my Facebook Page. I'll choose a random winner at the end of the blog hop!

I found this basket block in my pile of UFOs. As usual, I have difficulty deciding how to quilt it.
I used my walking foot to stitch in the ditch around all the pieces. I stitched again about 1/4" away from the seams in the flowers and basket.
Margaret sent me this photo of her version of Mother Earth Save Our Planet pattern.
