Then he can enjoy it again. Please subscribe as there are wonderful designs, articles, tips plus so much more. But most of all you get to see "his" quilt!!!!

In the midst of the 10 day countdown, an unexpected surprise!

In the midst of the 10 day countdown for the March issue of The Quilt Pattern Magazine at   in which a new design of mine will appear, I found out that another quilt of mine is going to be on The Wednesday Quilt Show  at  and I wanted to share. The name of the quilt is "Mr. & Mrs. Noah - Original Animal Disaster Planners". It is pieced as well as fusible applique. As with all my quilts, there is a story. As you may or may not know, I was a member of the Disaster Animal Response Team for The Humane Society of The United States and I worked quite a few disasters in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and New Mexico. It was one of the most meaningful times of my life. As a result of my participation with that group, I wrote The CASEY Plan (Caring for Animals Safely in Emergencies during the Year) which can be found on my website at  and it is a national program. Because of my experiences in search and resuce,  Animal Disaster Preparedness Education is a subject very near and dear to my heart and I have given seminars and workshops at different national conferences. I felt very strongly about sending a message through my quilt making and this is what evolved. I was in the process of making this when Hurricane Ivan was headed right for our area. We evacuated and of course I took all my quilt stuff with me. It was an awful hurricane and really hit Pensacola, FL  and surrounding areas very hard. We were very blessed as we had minimal damage. Anyway there you have the story of that quilt!

O, Lord, what a variety you have made! And in wisdom you have made them all! The earth is full of your riches.

Another one of my quilt patterns and how it started!

It all started with these little kitty pitchers in my guest room - all were gifts!! I kept looking at them and you can see what happened next! 
A cross stitch design depicting my little pitchers.
Then came a needlepoint canvas! Then a quilt, then another quilt  - only this time I used the method of Broderie Perse for the flowers!
This is the quilt with the technique of Broderie Perse Flowers. That simply means that I found a large flower print, cut the flowers out and appliqued them on my quilt. This was a method used in the middle 1800's when printed chintz fabrics were used to applique on squares.
Let me know what you think!
