MAZED Quilt Pattern & Giveaway

I am so very excited to finally be able to share with you all my 1st pattern, MAZED.

This has been a super-long time in the making because while I was creating the quilt and writing the pattern, I was also starting and setting up my little business St. Louis Folk Victorian...so I could officially distribute and sell my patterns.

Let me start by saying that none of this would be possible without the help of Family and Friends.  Not only did they give me the encouragement to pursue this adventure; but they "suffered" through hours of commentary, discussion, photo-taking, pattern-testing, etc.  Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

Now it's picture time....






You can visit My Pattern Shop to purchase this pattern which includes the following:
  • Materials Needed
  • Cutting Instructions
  • Detailed Step-by-step instructions along with diagrams
  • Additional block ideas and quilt layouts

If you own a shop and are interested in carrying my pattern,
let's talk...send me an email.

Finally, what fun is a BIG annoucement without a little Giveaway, eh?

How would you like the chance to win your very own hardcopy of MAZED? 


To enter, all you need to do is leave me a comment below by Friday, April 13th  - 9pm CST.
