  1. Thank you for the inspiration, I was worn out this year running around like a chook without a head, but after watching this am back on deck and hope to have some made in a few days!

  2. My dear friend, Amanda Weatherill aka The Patchsmith, told me about the Mini Nordic Quilt and I’ve been a fan ever since. You design the most beautiful patterns and so I’ve now created a special notebook to keep all of the “must make” items safe. The only other designer that I have a special notebook for is The Patchsmith. The Patchsmith is now in two volumes. Thank you for sharing your talent with all of us who love to quilt, but can’t begin without the guidance of your instruction.

  6. I am looking for Christmas patterns or ideas featuring hand bells. My sister is an avid “handbeller” and every year I search for a quilting piece to make for her. Do you have anything that features bells? I saw your Nordic miniature quilt and it is so charming. We are Norwegian also – not 100% but close enough and I know she will treasure this one with the hardinger my (100%) Norwegian grandmother made many many years ago. Thanks, Nancy

    • Embroider Library has a nice design called bird notes. Music line with birds sitting on the music, and bells hanging off the staff lines like ornaments. I think you could easily adapt that idea to an applique with handbells hanging down.

  14. Just discovered your website and I love it.
    I can’t seem to find the pattern for the book bag, I know my granddaughter would love the travel size pillowcase and book bag for a Christmas gift.
    Thank you.

  27. Saw you on facebook. Love the winter seeds table topper. I have an old round oak table and have had a hard time finding topper patterns for it.
    Thank you so much.

  29. I downloaded a Holiday Mug Rug, don’t know if I purchased it or if it was a freebie, but I cannot open it. I just get gibberish. If it was a freebie, I’m not concerned. If I purchased, I would appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you.
