More Atkinson Designs Quilts....

I asked for photos of quilts made with Atkinson Designs patterns this month for an extra chance at the giveaway. (There's still a lot of April left-- keep sending them in!)  This was sent by Andee in Arizona.  Andee blogs at

Nice Slide Show, Andee!

I thought I'd show you a few of my own quilts made from Atkinson Designs patterns.  ALL in-stock Atkinson patterns on my website are on sale this month, by the way.
The first 2 are Lucky Stars.  This in one of my favorite patterns.  It's so quick to stitch up!  The stars "float" which makes piecing a lot quicker (and more forgiving).  And Terry's patterns are so well written that it's very straight-forward.  The first was made for my DIL when she graduated from high school.  She wasn't my DIL yet at that time and it was the first quilt I made for her.  If you scroll down several posts, you'll see a pic of her with the snowman quilt I made her this past Christmas.  The second Lucky Stars was made for a charity auction a few years back.  It brought in a nice donation for the Lelooska Foundation,

This one, sadly, is no longer in print.  It's called Allegro.  I love it and it's the background quilt in my profile photo.

And this one is not an Atkinson Designs quilt.  I lifted it from my friend, Charlotte's, Facebook page.  :-)  It's her most recent finish and I thought it was really cute and just had to share it with you.  I love this pattern.  One of these days it just might make it to my sewing machine. Really cute quilt, Charlotte!

I hope everyone had a nice holiday weekend.  We've had SUCH a rainy spring, and this past weekend was sunny and warm-ish.  WHAT a gift!  It was such a spirit-lifter!  Today is beautiful here in the pacific northwest, too.  I think spring weather has FINALLY arrived here!  YEA!!!  (That means garden pictures are soon to come).
