I am delighted to have the book for Magnolia back from the printer. This was such a fun quilt to make using Wendy's wonderful palette of hand dyed wools. I did a large amount of embellishing using hand dyed yarns and some ribbons and beads. This is the quilt I will be teaching in Calgary and Australia in the next few weeks. The book as well as kit are available on my website If a large quilt seems overwhelming you can always do a block and make it into a table runner, pillow or small wall hanging. I would also like to share with you a quilt made by Nancy Moore from Montana using my CD 'Folk art Dreams' from the Electric Quilt Company. This is a fabulous CD with 190 of my blocks on it. You can see how you can create and design your own projects. This pillow was also created by Lynn Cibulka using blocks in the CD. I just love to see all the possibilities using blocks I have designed. I always think of them as a springboard to making your own one of a kind pieces. Many thanks to all my students who share their quilts with me. Take care Sue


  1. Thanks Sue, it was fun and easy to make with the CD and computer,

  2. Wish I had windows, Nancy has made so many wonderful designs from it. I love Magnolias and the border. I will keep my eyes open for it when it hits the stores.


  3. I can't wait to do your "Magnolia" class in Brisbane!
