Made with Northcott's Artisan Spirit Expressions collection.

I chose to fussy-cut portions from a panel to piece into the quilt. Most of the remaining panel is used for a colorful binding. The rest of the piecing is made with textured fabrics in beautiful gradations.

There is no complicated sewing; the positioning of color makes the statement! Size, 56" x 70"

'Tis the Quilting Season and time for the latest projects, show 'n tell and shop hops! I'm preparing two quilts currently and plan (I'm always planning) on some other project ideas too. While gardeners are winding down after the summer, it feels like I'm winding up. And it feels good.

It feels good to have added new patterns too! Christmas seems to be the theme, but "Chirrup Chirrup" celebrates returning birds and the certain-to-eventually-come spring.

The fabric used on "Best Buddies" is unavoidably cute, "Yuletide Glow" and "Juldagen" (the 'J' is soft, a Scandinavian "Y' as in 'Yuletide') are straight up Christmas designs, and "Snow Days" celebrates the winter season. C'mon, there's plenty to celebrate!

Even "Orion's Belt", left, celebrates this time of year with its bright stars and the Orion constellation climbing into the sky.

City dwellers, you'll just have to believe it about the stars. Or better yet, take a visit outside of the city lights and see for yourself!

Finally, October is
Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Some time ago I made a pattern for a very special fabric design by Deborah Edwards. The pattern is free to download, found further down this page.

You'll have the opportunity to put your own creative energy into the fabric selection since the original is is not available. Please enjoy it, I'm a five year breast cancer survivor myself.

Surrounding the jolly Santa panel are a combination of pieced and appliquéd blocks.

Although your favorite quilt shop may have sold out of this exact panel, the pattern can as easily be used with other large, 1 yard Christmas panels.

The sewing fun doesn't have to stop once you've finished making the quilt! This pattern includes bonus instructions for a simple table runner using one appliquéd block and pieced star blocks.

October is always Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

As a breast cancer survivor myself I know the importance of research and the hope of new treatments.

Weaving Hope is my small support and "Thank you" for the effort to control and stop all cancers.
