I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

It’s time for some of traditional crocheting!

So, here we are with long evenings approaching and in need of fun and beautiful projects to fill them up. Therefore, why not delve into the ghost of crochet past, and explore some traditional forms? Thus, we have collected some quilt inspired projects for you to try and experiment with. Indeed, there’s absolutely no reason why the classic can’t become the new modern. Indeed, that’s so often the case. Thus, here are some ideas that show just how the timeless can inspire new generations of crocheters and projects.
