Botanicals BOM and Embroidery Workshop begins May 1 in the May issue of The Quilt Pattern Magazine.  For Stone Cottage Design-Quilts followers use secret code: SCD to receive a special subscription price.

This is a 12-month appliqué BOM combined with a home sewing machine embroidery workshop using Presencia™ Perle Cotton #16 in the top of the machine. While the embroidery accents may be accomplished using ordinary thread, the #16 perle cotton will add textural dimension to your blocks and also add a new tool to your quilting toolbox. See the Materials List for information on where to find Presencia™ Perle Cotton #16. You may also choose to add the embroidery by hand if so desired. Showcased are two quilts, each using nine of the twelve blocks.  Find Presencia™ Perle Cotton #16, 5 gm balls, at

Reminiscent of vintage watercolor floral prints from the 1800s, Antique Botanicals uses a warm, creamy batik for the background with earth tone batiks for the frames. Tropical Botanicals uses a watery, aqua batik for the background with the bright, cool colors of the tropics for the frames.

After working 5 months on a bathroom renovation, we are finally seeing some light at the end of the tunnel.  This has left little time for sewing, so I am happy to finally have something to post. This is Modern Spaces in blue and white. It is now available in the April 2017 issue of The Quilt Pattern Magazine.  Check it out!  TQPM is once again available to our European subscribers!
