Creating Memorable Year-Round Celebrations with Quilts and Crafts

BookCover I am so excited about my brand new book, HomeComings! We had such a good time designing and creating the projects and then planning and taking all the photos outdoors. Our theme is “creating memorable year-round celebrations with quilts and crafts,” and this 96 page, soft cover, book features more than forty quilt and craft projects to set the scene for seasonal celebrations. I hope you will love this new book as much as we do!


One of the most satisfying things in life for most women is gathering family and friends for a holiday or special occasion celebration. Those events when people come together from far and near are the most memorable and joyous of occasions. Preparing for these events is a big part of the fun and this book is loaded with projects and ideas for setting the scene for joy-filled reunions and homecomings.


We followed the seasons in this book and springtime projects include a beautiful basket quilt and colorful flower-filled lap quilt as well as a selection of pillows, a door banner, and Earth Day Wall Quilt.

A 4th of July celebration is the focus of the summertime section and includes festive patriotic décor including a lap quilt, Americana Wall Quilt, a door banner, and variety of pillows for charming indoor or outdoor décor.

Halloween happenings will be hauntingly fun with a Black and Patch Lap Quilt, black cat pillow, pumpkin table runner and other clever projects.

Quilters and crafters will reap a bounty of projects in the Harvest Celebrations section. An eye-catching appliquéd wall quilt,  Harvest Lap Quilt,  table quilts, dimensional pumpkins, and a beautiful welcome banner set the scene for autumn activities.


A joyful celebration of projects is included in the Holiday Traditions chapter including bird banners, a log cabin lap quilt, snowman door banner and holiday décor projects. See all the chapter introductions by clicking on this link, then clicking on each photo. I think you’ll find many fun projects that you’ll want to make for your next family celebration!

Have fun.
