A note to my students:

As a quiltmaker I want the most professional results possible when I use my surface topstitch piecing techniques on my artwork. I’ve found that by far Invisifil 100 wt. thread fits the bill perfectly …it’s better than invisible!
When I use the machine blind-hem stitch, a 70/10 needle and Invisifi l to sew my patches the result is terrific.

Invisifil has all the desirable qualities I need …it is very strong for it’s light weight and it looks, feels and handles like regular thread….not to mention the wide variety of colors available. When I construct a quilt I need to match or blend thread color to the fabric. I’ve found that if there isn’t an exact color match, that even if I use similar tones or values, the thread blends in perfectly with the fabric color.

I only endorse products I love…and I heartily recommend Invisifil 100wt.…it is the best of all worlds for a topstitching quilter like me.

Quilt Patterns

For international orders please email Vikki for postage estimate.

As you view the pattern images, please remember the sizes listed in the chart are in accord with my own quilt sizes. With my technique you have the freedom to change the shape and size of a pattern and its outside perimeter however you wish…so the finished size of your quilt will be subjective to your whim...

Pattern sizes do not include borders or bindings unless noted.

Please note: These patterns are intended for my former class/workshop students and those who have my books/DVD and are familiar with my topstitch techniques.
