Welcome to Seams & Dreams!

I hope you’ll find quilt, clothing, and home decor patterns to your liking from the wide variety of traditional and contemporary designs offered by Seams and Dreams.

Many were inspired by the fabric from which they were made, while the ideas for others were sparked by friends and family, and still others by God’s beautiful creation.

Many of the Seams and Dreams designs were created in my Estes Park, Colorado, home which is now used for short term vacation rentals.  Estes Park is the gateway to the Rocky Mountain National Park, pictured on the right.  So you can see from what and where much of my inspiration arises.

Since 1995, Seams & Dreams has been a joint effort by many people through encouragement, sample-making, help with packaging, website design, and more. My deepest thanks goes out to you who have given such support and continue to make Seams & Dreams what it is and will be.

In addition to the quilt design patterns offered through Seams & Dreams, I also am very active in textile art production and custom furniture up cycling.  You may see some of my artistic work on my Green Chair Studios web site.  If you are ever in Estes Park, please visit the Aspen & Evergreen Gallery to see which of my latest pieces they are showcasing…and, of course, enjoy the work of other local artisans at the Gallery…featuring the wonderful mountain photography of James Frank.

Please like us on Facebook. And if you’re ever in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, give me a call—let’s meet for coffee!

PS…Due to some early photography missteps, some of the Pattern photos you see in PRODUCTS became blurry when changed to web photos.  We are working to correct that.  Please rest assured though that the Patterns you order will have clear, beautiful photos and instructions…
