May release – Jo’s Little Favorites II

Coming soon to your local or favorite Quilt Shop . . .

Jo’s Little Favorites II


One of my very favorite small quilts was made with ‘leftover’ HST (half square triangles), this sweet quilt measures 11″ x 12 3/4″, I hand quilted it in the middle of the night, you know one of those nights you can’t sleep, so you may as well get up. I go stitch, at least I feel I accomplish something besides tossing and turning.



Below is Courthouse Steps, another favorite.  I know I use ‘favorite’ a lot, but I do have lots of favorites, I know you do too.  It rests comfortably in my dry sink, I can change out other collectables. I also have one in reds and greens. And, yes this one is hand quilted too. No marking needed, as I quilt about 1/8″ from the ditch, easy to carry around and add a few stitches.

Prairie Basket – from my first JLW Club, it certainly has the timeless quality, I still love it all these years later.

I had it hanging on the wall at the studio, until I needed to share it with Martingale for a while. It will be rehung on the wall in June, after our vacation and of course it will go to Quilt Market with me.

If you are a Shop owner reading this, be sure and come to my Schoolhouse sessions with Martingale, one on ‘Simple Friendships’ book with Kim Diehl, and the other on ‘Little Favorites II’.

Fun Sewing ahead!

  1. Of all my Little Women pieces Leftovers remains one of my favorites as well. I enjoyed working on all of them Jo! Good memories of being part of the Two Thimbles group.
