Town Square Quilt Pattern

Town Square Quilt Pattern

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. Download the pattern.

Lucy's Legacy Lap Quilt

Lucy’s Legacy Lap Quilt Pattern

“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.

Give and Take Baby Quilt

Give and Take Baby Quilt Pattern

“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! Download the pattern.
