Pat, your Christmas Fig quilts are beautiful! And I loved seeing everyone's blocks, all so lovely. I bought the book, but sadly, due to a death in the family, I haven't been doing any sewing for awhile. I hope to do some blocks soon.
Thanks for sharing , very inspirational


Thank you for all the hints. I do not have mine finished but hope to by Christmas.

Big Hugs Margaret! start when you can, it's a gorgeous sampler


Wonderful Crystal!


Awesome Lois!! Change the photo resolution in your camera. Or share at Facebook, then download the FB picture as FB reduces it's size

Hi Pat,

Your quilts turned out beautifully!!! I tried the link to find the Tisket Tasket basket pattern, but it brought me to Fatquartershop, but no pattern. Can you direct me to the pattern?

Thanks for all the inspiration!!

Simply love your Fig quilts!!! I haven't sewn a lick - been too busy traveling and having a good time with family and friends - at the beach and the lake!! Summer is such a hard time for me to sew - I have sewn at the lake outside on the covered porch!!
Keep up your good work - with all your tips, your beautiful fabric and quilts! Love it all!


I finished my Spendid Sampler a month or so ago. I used some cut=aways from shirts from my Great Uncle's possessions. In the seventies, clothing companies would advertise their scraps for so much a pound. These were shirtings of a very fine cotton, almost like Liberty Lawn. I didn't do quite all of the blocks, did several of the bonus blocks and put it all together finally and quilted it. It is a big quilt and has so many fun blocks in it.
Here is a link to the quilt. https://photos.smugmug.com/Art/2019-artwork-gallery/i-6nbr8jr/0/6c4fae7d/M/straightened%20shirt%20sleeve%20sampler%20cropped%20for%20inventory%20log-M.jpg
