Each year there is usually some sort of panel or border print or decorative scenes. So I usually incorporated that whenever I could to just give customers ideas of how they could turn those into something more than they started with.

I've used the row quilt layout more than once. There are 2 examples in the picture below, although the quilt on the upper left isn't very visible. The quilt on the lower left was made with fabrics originally designed by James Meger, a noted nature/outdoor artist.

The quilt on the right above is called Connections, and it is one pattern that I have made in multiple sizes. The baby quilt is cute and just the right size!
Below are 2 patterns that are small items that were part of the collection - a tablerunner and a pair of tablemats for centerpieces.
I've used that round tablemat design for making some Christmas gifts, too.

So that's the saga of my Minnesota quilts! It's been an interesting endeavor, and it's been fun to see many patterns come to life in fabric. We always make up some kits for the quilts, and I've taught some as classes. The 2018 fabrics can be viewed online but we haven't received any bolts yet. I'm wondering what I will come up with this time?
