Hometown: San Luis Obispo, California Shelley Swanlands twin passions for quilting and wearable art have kept her busy creating, competing, and teaching for more than 10 years.
Both of us love that classic pattern, but we wanted to play with several techniques to see which suited our fancy. I was up early that morning making sure I could find all my Cathedral Window patterns.
I had found them all except a book I bought a couple of years ago by Shelley Swanland titled “Machine Stitched Cathedral Windows, Updating an Old Favorite”, published by Martingale & Co. Even though I had poured over the book after I bought it and liked her ideas immensely, I had never tried any of the patterns.
She related to me that she recently moved back to the states because her younger sister, Tara, had been diagnosed with breast cancer and she wanted to be closer to her sister and her family. I have seen several patterns for breast cancer quilts, but none of them were exactly right for what I had in mind.
So I got out my engineering paper, and after about 8 or 10 iterations, came up with my own design.
