Pattern(s) available at Etsy

Opened a very small, a this point, shop on Etsy so that my quilt patterns are more easily available at a PDF download. The one pattern that's for sale there at this point is my bright, contemporary "Twist and Shout" pictured below. The quilt is a basic 9-patch with 5 of the blocks cut and sewn to visually spin in one direction, and 4 to spin in the opposite direction. There is a partial seam in the center around the black and white pinwheel, but an easy sewing technique to do.

My Etsy shop is: PatHarrisonQuilts. Hope to see you there!

Ninigret Quilters Show

Think I'm finally recovered from the show. All went very well and the show's success is such a tribute to the many friendly, hard working guild members who were there throughout the show. The most exciting news of the show was that a quilt I quilted for Tina Craig won Best of Show and a plethora of other ribbons, including Exemplary Machine Quilting - Track Mounted for my quilting of it.

Tina did an amazing job selecting the fabrics and colors, not to mention how well she pieced this difficult design. She added applique to the design as well and a beautifully done scalloped border. Quite the Masterpiece!
