Changes are coming in Mary Dell Templeton’s life, including a new rookie co- host for her quilting show. She designed the “Town Square Quilt” for her new partner Holly, based on the Courthouse Square block, taking a fresh twist on a time-honored block and proving that traditional patchwork never goes out of style. Inspired by the characters and events in Marie’s novel, FROM HERE TO HOME.

“Lucy’s Legacy Lap Quilt” is a perfect quilt for a beginner or weekend project for the more experienced sewist. “Lucy’s Legacy” can be made with a traditional binding or optional prairie points that add to the challenge and ramp up the fun factor! “Lucy’s Legacy” was inspired by characters and events in Marie’s novel, THE SECOND SISTER.

“Simple Steps Runner,” a companion pattern for Marie Bostwick’s APART AT THE SEAMS, is now available for download. The quilt was designed by Deb Tucker, founder of Studio 180 Designs, Ltd.

“Give and Take” is what we’ve named the baby quilt that Mary Dell and her sister, Lydia Dale, made together. It was their first collaboration and it was a big success!

And speaking of collaborations, my friend, Deb Tucker, and I collaborated on this little beauty. And by “collaboration” I mean that I talked about the quilt and Deb did the actual work. And I think you’ll agree that she did her work well! To see more of Deb’s amazing quilt designs, visit her website, www.studio180design.net.

Thanks also to Deb Tucker, designer of the “Star Crossed Love” table runner, “Providence” tea cozy and coasters, and the “Hide and Seek” baby quilt. In addition to these free patterns, Deb has designed full-sized companion patterns for several of my books, which can be purchased on her website, www.studio180design.net. (She also sells really, really great quilting rulers which I use and love. I’m not on Deb’s payroll, I just love sharing a good thing with my Reading Friends.)
