We have a shop on Etsy where we sell digital quilt patterns and some of our handmade quilts.  The patterns are electronic PDF downloads, so there's no printing/shipping and we can reduce the price.

Kay has the privilege of teaching a retreat in this tight-knit farming area.  It's a community event, including adult quilters, young 4-H girls learning to sew and inspirational visits by local elders.  Kay stays with one of the ladies and all the food eaten during the retreat is home-grown by the participating women.

We love sewing and using log cabin quilts, so we've designed several.  They can be used as wall hangings or lap quilts.  Some of our designs are holiday-themed as well, like this picture above.

Bed quilt designs was where VQD started.   Kay was making unique quilts for her house and friends convinced her to turn them into patterns.  Our designs are queen and twin sizes.

We designed these small projects for fast completion, but still using traditional blocks and quilting techniques.  They are table runners, table toppers, or wall banners.
