Color Wheel

The fabric collections and quilt samples are the stars at Quilters’ Haven. Fat quarters are on display in pots and baskets, and a rainbow of bolts provide a colorful background.

Cards to Quilts

Also on display are several patterns from Rob and Mary Stanphill of Willow Bay Designs. Rob uses his experience as an artist for Hallmark to create quilt designs. Safari Babies (left) and Pony Tales feature the cute, cartoonlike animals that have become the designer’s staple.

Ruffled Edges

A sweet jumper and purse are on display for the Folklorica collection for In The Beginning Fabrics. The ruffle jumper and pants Shoulder Tie Top are patterns by Indygo Junction.

Lotus Garden

Quilters' Haven owner Debbie Richards and staff member Linda Bentz designed Lotus Gardens for Quilt Sampler magazine.

Softness in Hues

The machine-quilting designs—soft floral shapes and straight lines—echo the piecework in Lotus Garden.

Lotus Garden Color Option

Take the focus to the outer edges of the quilt by using bold, patterned florals from the Eclectic Garden collection by Jason Yenter for In the Beginning Fabrics.
