Where can I find patterns for your quilts?

Quilt patterns for many of the quilts shown here are commericially available. Some of the designs have been created by local women for their exclusive use and commercial patterns are not available.

While we do not sell quilt patterns, there are many sources for quilt patterns on the web. When specifying a pattern bear in mind that the names of quilt patterns are not standardized — you will find that many different quilt patterns have the same name, and many quilt patterns have several different names.What’s more as quilts are laid out a particular design may modified by the quilter to adjust its size.
