Admiring Another Quilter's Work

Potpourri by Vanessa Fromm
I received an email about a very old lesson file on my web site (from about 12 years ago). It seems that Vanessa Fromm had been trolling the internet looking for an easier way to make Dogtooth Border units. She found my Lessons Page and my Dogtooth Border tutorial. She loved it and it made her life a lot easier. I am humbled and honored that she used my technique to make this glorious quilt!

You can see my Dogtooth tutorial here: Dogtooth Borders
Warning! It's very rudimentary. These days I don't use a template, but a multi-sized 60 degree ruler (ie, Creative Grids).

And did I show you my own Thousand Pyramids quilt that is in the current issue of Modern Patchwork Magazine? The whole thing is composed of that single triangle cut the same way:

Vanessa creates quilts, patterns them and sells them through quilt shops and various distributors. This pattern won't be available until Fall Quilt Market, so you'll just have to wait to get your hands on it. Such a burst of color everywhere.

The quilt is 59" x 59" and Vanessa told me that she uses the Silhouette Cameo for her cutting.

Take a visit to Fabric Confetti and see more of her delightful patterns.


  1. how good is that , must have a journey through your old posts and see what I can find to make quilting easier need more hours in the day, when I get a lap top I can browse whilst in bed!
