I have always loved craft and sewing and always drawn pictures; in the past I sold a lot of my paintings. That was until I discovered quilting in 2000 and applique in 2003. Since then I have relished the challenges of designing my own quilts which are all hand applique. After joining the local quilters' guild and taking along some of my quilts, people asked me to make patterns of my designs. I now have many patterns and more in the drawing stage. The patterns are available on my web site. I have been teaching quilting at a local shop and at several guilds around the state, and am thoroughly enjoying sharing my work with others. I am delighted in the wonderful feedback I have been receiving from the girls in my classes and people buying my patterns.

The five panels that make up this quilt are available as individual Pattern Panels so you can purchase one individually to test your skills before purchasing the full pattern. Each panel makes a lovely wall hanging or a table runner.
If you purchase a single Panel, then decide you would like to make the whole quilt, the Robianville pattern can be purchased at a discounted price. .
