Meet the Author

Although she was born in Texas and raised in Louisiana (a very long time ago), Sunny now lives in the cloudy Northwest! It wasn't until the move to Washington State in the late 1990s that she discovered quilting. And that is greatly due to the Q2 quilt group, which she calls "sisters, teachers, and encouragers, all of them!"

Sunny and Greg (her husband of 37 years) have lived all over the United States. They've raised six children. Most of them sew, and all of them are creative. There are 12 grandchildren, at least so far. "One of the great joys in life," says Sunny.

    Are you someone who never follows a pattern or just begins with no specific pattern/block in mind? This book will give you all kinds of ideas on what design to use to create a quilt, wall hanging, table runner or even just a pillow.

    There are 6” and 12” block ideas and 1”, 3”, 4” and 6” border ideas. There are even paper pieced patterns.

    The book starts out with instructions on how to use the book --- always a good thing! Next is a short overview on color and suggestions for setting the blocks on point. Medallion plans follow next. The rest of the book has the block/border how to information and the paper piecing templates.

    If you have some wonderful fabric and are stumped on what pattern to use, get a copy of this book and soon you will have the perfect pattern for your fabric.
