Look at the cute flower pockets made with Texture Magic.
Miriam first became known for her fabric dolls.
And now designs pincushion, aprons, quilts and fabrics.
Aunt Minnie's Button Apron
I bought this pattern to further my button addiction.
The bio on her web site tells us a little more:
Miriam is currently in the process of designing a new line of fabric for Benartex fabrics, a division of Bernina of America.
She creates new patterns for her Fabric Folk business, as well as for showroom models, displayed at trade shows and in the showrooms in New York, for Marcus Brothers Textiles and other clients. She also is an avid painter, preferring to work with oils.
With the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War approaching, Miriam has been involved in designing patterns to honor the event.
The bonnet was made with fabrics from Miriam's new fabric line that will be released soon.

This pioneer doll is the mock up, also showcasing the new fabric line and patterns to be released.
The doll will be made from fabric panels.
"Keeper of The Bees"
Miriam uses a double applique method for her quilts, where each piece is completely backed and then sewn down.
