For the past 40 years, quilting has been my passion. Then in 2018, I took a class and discovered collage quilting. What an experience! After my first quilt, I was hooked! It is why I decided to jump off the cliff and develop my first collage art pattern! That is how Moo-Shu the Panda was born!
Trudi the Reindeer was collage art pattern number two. Trudi is Rudolph’s cousin. Covered in lots of fused Kaffe Fassett fabric and placed on a navy batik background, Trudi took take her place this past Christmas decorating a wall in my entry.
Bluebonnet the Longhorn collage quilt debuted just in time for 2019’s Houston rodeo and is made mostly with Texas-themed fabric. New in 2000, check out my Etsy shop to also purchase my Texas flag and beginner Heart-shaped full-size patterns. Each pattern also contains detailed supply list and step-by-step directions. All patterns are now offered in convenient downloadable pdf format. If you prefer the panda, reindeer and longhorn are also available already printed and will be mailed!
A portion of all proceeds will go to the Village Learning and Achievement Center, a charity that supports special needs adults and their families.
Feel free to follow the Life’s Loose Threads blog for plenty of tips and techniques related to collage quilting and more.
