Welcome to Country Lane Quilts, the website of quilt pattern designer and Martingale author Kathleen Tracy. 

Scrap quilts from the past have a great appeal for many and if you enjoy making small or scrappy quilts you've come to the right place.  Years ago I fell in love with antique doll quilts and now I design my own quilts using traditional blocks and reproduction fabrics to make them look like they were created long ago.

If you're a beginning quilter, learn the art of quilting today by starting small. Make your own little keepsake quilt for a special doll, to hang on a wall or display on a table or simply give to a friend. Many of my doll quilt patterns introduce quilting to beginners, but even experienced quilters will have fun making these quick projects as well as some of the larger ones in my books, all with a feel of the past. Take a journey into history with some of the quilts in my books and patterns or try one of the free patterns and get started quilting today! You'll be amazed at how much fun it is to actually make a project and finish it.

  • My newest book, Schoolgirl Sampler, is a fun book if you love sampler quilts or working with small blocks.  See the Books page to purchase a signed copy.  See the Schoolgirl Sampler page to find out more about joining my Facebook sew along group. Sewing along with others is a fun way to make this quilt!
