Hello Everyone,

One of my favorite aspects of designing quilts, is receiving pictures of my completed designs from quilters all over the country.  I received these pictures of my Heartfire pattern from Joy in Ohio. Here is what Joy said:

I just finished sewing on the label to my rendition of your Heartfire pattern.  I have made this for our son, Matthew, and his fiancĂ©e, Kate, who will be married on July 16, 2011.  Kate has chosen fuchsia, orange and red with a touch of black as her wedding colors.  On what will more than likely be a very hot and steamy day, those colors will add to the festive atmosphere.  You can see in their quilt that I used primarily Amy Butler and Kaffe Fassett fabrics and the black with a hot pink dot was used as a neutral.  One of my trademarks is using my leftovers for the backing; a little zingy, but fun.

Joy is going to give this beautiful treasure to Matthew and Kate on Sunday.  I wish I could be a little mouse in the room to see their reaction when they open their gift!  Joy is a woman after my own heart with the scrappy back that she made. I love every aspect of your quilt!

Joy, you gave me great JOY by sending me your pictures.  I can't thank you enough.

As always,



  1. What a great compliment to have recieved a letter and picture of one of your quilts. Her fabric choice put a whole different look to it.
    Such a beautiful quilt to give as a gift. truly a labor of love.

  2. What a treat to see, Lynn! I just love how she fussy cut the centers! The bride and groom will adore it!
