The Basics:

I’m a self professed fabric-aholic! My general style of clothing is fairly simple except I love a really great jacket and wonderful accessories. We’re a creative & eclectic blend in my family. Trying to find the right style in the right size can be a challenge. That’s how the basic design for Golden Thyme Design patterns evolved.

Golden Thyme Design patterns were designed to introduce Quilters to Wearable Art with a very basic design and a small taste of garment alteration. The patterns are based upon the rectangle which is familiar to Quilters and they are constructed with a rotary cutter and 1/4" seam allowances. The foundation is muslin or flannel rather than batting which allows for a soft drape and a lighter weight garment.

Each piece of the design can be a different mini quilt or coordinated to blend. That's the beauty of looking at Wearables as quilts. Start with a basic design and then add the latest technique you've just learned! Now you have a unique design!
