Introducing Trudi and Moo-Shu

Quilting has always been my passion, but recently I discovered collage quilting. After my first quilt, I decided to jump off the cliff and develop my first collage pattern! That was how Moo-Shu was born! Trudi the Reindeer is collage art pattern number two. Trudi is Rudolph’s cousin and what a beautiful reindeer she is. Covered in lots of fused Kaffe Fassett fabric and placed on a navy batik background she is ready to take her place this Christmas decorating a wall in our home. Check out my Etsy shop to purchase the full-size pattern and step-by-step directions.


The Moo-Shu collage art quilt pattern is now available for sale on Etsy – it includes a full-size pattern, supply list, and easy to follow instructions.

A portion of all proceeds will go to the Village Learning and Achievement Center, a charity that supports special needs adults and their families, including mine.

More art quilt patterns will be coming soon, and please feel free to follow the Life’s Loose Threads blog for plenty of tips and techniques related to collage quilting and more.

Questions? Contact me – I’d love to hear from you! Also, feel free to share photos of your own Moo-Shu! I’d love to see your creation!
