The Millennium Star Throw Quilt Pattern, JQ-05
The Millennium Dawn Throw Quilt  Pattern, JQ-05

This one is for the experienced quilter who loves to try something new. Stack repeats or fussy-cut.

As the name suggests, you might need caffeine and a good night's sleep to get the centers to line up, but when it happens, it's glorious! I pass along tips and techniques to layer, cut, piece, and press. The template included has a center, making this a 21st century Dresden. Use a fabric with a solid background for easiest center piecing.

Mary Lou's Borders Pattern, JQ-12 (25" x 25")
This is a basically a border pattern. The butterfly scene is just a gorgeous fabric. I did embellish it, but the point is you are getting classy borders. I designed it around Mary Lou Carlson's patterns for folded cutwork applique so popular here in Tidewater, Virginia.
Decorator fabric, applique, pillow panels, all look better in a nice frame. Instructions for a simple pillow are included.   This makes a great  gift project. Shopowners use it as a project-of-the-month or to display a large print.

The center is 16" finished. For an 18" center you would leave out the 1" finished accent border. You could use a folded 1" accent border that lays on top of the center piece to provide interest and contrast, if desired. The borders are useful with other quilts divisible by 18" on the sides w/o borders.

One Block Quilts
What is a one-block quilt? In this pattern, it is a setting for a "onesy", such as an applique block, pillow panel, extra block, large print too pretty to cut up, or blank space to quilt in. Fat quarters are perfect for the first two sizes. You can even center the block on batting and backing and add triangles with a "quilt as you go" method. This works best with the smaller sizes for quick quilts, and I like to add more quilting, but the "in the ditch" quilting is done, and invisible on the front!

Have you ever noticed that once you put a block on point it just looks classier? This pattern uses a trick to get them there. If you have a large acrylic square ruler, or always wanted a reason to get one, try this quilt.  The center block can be 14 1/4" to 14 1/2". This is easily squared using the 15" Omnigrid® ruler, or any ruler that is that size or larger than that one. The pattern gives four sizes, 28" x 28" to 50" x 50", all of which begin the same way.
American Union Star
One Block Quilt Pattern, JQ-02
An easy "Linus" quilt, or for when the fabric says it all. PLUS!  I give you an accurate paper template, a "Dresden" plate or a five-pointed star, to make a block that fits, if you don't have one.
Directions to make durable plastic templates included.
Dresden Plate
One Block Quilt Pattern, JQ-01
This darling pillow panel from Debbie Mumm's Botanical Angels' collection fit the center quite easily. The panel itself was a block on-point, which makes it look even better.
Pattern Price: $9

Here the pillow panel needed strips added to fit the center. Add strips in log cabin fashion until it measures 14 1/4"- 14 1/2".

This quilt began with the eagle border print. Some people ask if this is an applique, but the eagle is on the fabric. Many prints can be cut this way.
This Dresden block is included, with directions for  construction. I used one of the many "fabric treat" collections I had, and made the block from scraps left from the triangle cuts.

Special permission is given to you to make this quilt often for many people.  Individual quilters can sell ten finished quilts per pattern purchased without permission for personal gain (we have fabric to buy).  This is an Honor System. Quilts given away or donated don't count in this ten.  Please credit the pattern for the basic quilt setting, when appropriate.  Changes are allowed to the degree that they don't infringe on someone else's copyright, but it is so similar to what is in public domain, you are probably safe, as long as you don't print a new pattern like it, or copy the pattern itself, or put the pattern on the net.  I know this is vague, but we have to be brave now, and we can't know everything.  For soldiers, use your stash to substitute unfinished 12 1/2" project blocks that work with your center prints. The center prints and scrappy border fabrics can include favorite pastimes that are enjoyed in free nations and our beautiful scenery.  Visit this link to feel blessed:
