Pick a Peck

Stitch and quilt the memories of summer and autumn. Imagine picking juicy red cherries with a breeze to cool the summer heat or the spicy scent of an apple pie cooling on the window sill!

Double Stars

A great design, with lots of movement. Look complicated? Its easy with my Sewfasst® techniques, that do not require templates or cutting a single half square triangle. Rotary cut strips, sewn and cut again give these wonderful patches.

Home Sweet Home

This square quilt has all of my favorite handwork techniques: patchwork, quilting, applique, embroidery and cross-stitch.

Nine Lives

Are these nine cats dreaming up some mischief? The fur won't fly, but nine watchful pussycats are contemplating you!

What do quilters have to say?


Hi Barbara, Thank you so much for the wonderful appliqué BOM. I enjoy handwork so much and your designs are wonderful and do-able. I have been keeping up with your latest BOM.


Barbara, the blocks are lovely! With the beautiful scenery you had to look at, I can well understand why you didn’t get the May block done. I don’t think I would have either. Sounds like you had a lovely trip. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely patterns.


Love your exquisite work. I am delighted you are sharing your talent with so many. Your website is a joy to view.
