Quilting Patterns to Inspire Your Craft

Hi, I'm Karen Chase.

I'm from the east coast of Canada, in beautiful Nova Scotia. Designing and creating is what I love...helping others learn to love the craft also brings me so much joy! Sometimes the only thing standing in the way of jumping into that next project is fear and intimidation. I'm here to tell you that even the most experienced sewer and quilter can feel that on a daily basis...enter the seam ripper, of which I have many scattered throughout my space.

If you're looking for patterns that are fun and unique, with clear instructions, you've come to the right place! To find these one-of-a-kind patterns Shop my Etsy store.

This was a great pattern. I used it for the back of a quilt but will definitely make it again as a featured design. Simple instructions and well written.
