I need some taller assisstants ...

My kids want to help me hold up quilts. They are 5-years old and more than helpful. Here is a picture of them holding a quilt I did for a customer at Christmas.

Clearly, I need some taller assistants! Although it is nice that they want to help Mommy.

This was one of those patterns that I was so happy after I "created" it. I thought man that is a good block. You can use lovely florals and showcase the fabrics. I was so excited and I asked one of my quilty friends what they thought of it. Her response was ... yeah I love "Swoon" by Camille Roskelley of Thimble Blossoms. 

SAY WHAT? I thought this was a Jennifer Blosser original! I looked at her pattern and I did make some of my pieces different. I do not know what size Camille's is, but I do love her "Ruby" line! Oh well, it is still a good star pattern. I would highly recommend getting Camille's pattern. And her book is cute too!

You can get "Swoon" here.


  1. I love the Swoon Pattern and am going to do a quilt with it. Your colors are beautiful! :)

  2. You need to take the same picture of your helpers holding that quilt year after year. It would be a neat way to chart their growth! It's a lovely quilt.

  3. That is too funny, maybe they need a stool? lol. Beautiful quilt.

  4. I hear in some places people just pass off patterns as their own. They even hang them in their stores and when told "oh I just loved that on the cover of (insert magazine name), they still claim it as their own. BAHAHAH.
