The Seedling Quilts

I can't garden, but I sure can quilt! I designed these quilts as my own kind of beautiful garden, full of refreshing, calming, and healing medicinal herbs, perfect for this chaotic modern life.

The Seedling Quilts are a series of quilts inspired by medicinal herbs. Each design can be made into its own quilt or made into small panels that are then machine sewn together in a log cabin style quilt to make a beautiful English paper pieced (EPP) and applique sampler quilt. The patterns for each quilt are in my book, The Seedling Quilts, which can be found here. You can find all the stories behind each herb below!
