I’m really excited about the release of my latest quilt pattern: SONORA


Sonora draws it’s inspiration from the Sonoran desert and the lands in the southwest. The colors used in my version reflect the colors of the sunrise and shadows of the outlines of the rocks.

Clean lines and modern geometric elements, softened by desert colors, help to create a beautiful quilt reminiscent of the harsh landscape of the Sonoran Desert.

The Sonora quilt pattern uses a combination of larger blocks and easy foundation piecing to make a quilt top that is quick and easy to assemble.

Hesitant about foundation piecing? Don’t worry! —  Also included in the pattern is second PDF which contains basic foundation piecing instructions. This will be a separate file from the pattern. The supplemental instructional PDF includes instructions for beginners as well as helpful tips for the seasoned quilter. Also included is a sample 6″ x 6″ block to test and play with your new foundation piecing skills.

Use bright, bold prints to make a vibrant quilt, soft desert colors or prints for a southwest feel, or choose dark blues and creams for a desert night sky.


The quilt shown is the throw size (65″ x 78″). It is easily made into a twin (70″ x 90″) or queen (90″ x 94″) by adding borders. (Instructions for this are included in the pattern.)

A good friend of mine saw this and said “I want (to make) one for every friend in my tribe.” I loved it! Make one for you and every friend/member of your tribe.

Happy Sewing!
