    I am trying to find the Mary Fish who did a beautiful piece of redwork titled sleighbells ring. If you are said Mary please reply
    Thank you

  • Janet Ferguson:

    Thank you so much for this great fish pattern – I am making a fishy quilt for my husband and the instructions are so clear and easy to follow.

  • Found your site by error. Love the patterns. I am sharing your site with my quild members. We like to exchange new sites.
    Thanks for all your quilts.

  • Silvia Diana:

    I like the fhis quilt, I need to do a quilt for a twin bed (sorry my language is Spanish). Can you tell me how can I calculate the fabric I will need?

    Thank you very much

    I wanted to let you know that I made a baby size version of the fish quilt. It turned out great. Thank you for your instructions and pattern.

  • Love this one; like the cats in Nancy Johnson-Srebro’s book “Rotary Magic”, will be a favorite of mine when friends have babies.

    The method reminds me of the easy way to make four flying geese patches at once.

  • Dolly:

    Sorry I don’t have a website yet.

    I am a first time quilter, and these patterns and instructions are the best I have seen anywhere. 🙂

    Thank you so much for all you have done. I will now be making quilts for premies, babies, children, teens, adults, homeless, in other words for anyone that is in need of comfort in the way of a warm quilt.

    God Bless You!
