Patterns Patterns In the early 2003 I decided to commercially pattern a few of my designs with the help of my older son Dane. Several of my quilting friends asked if I would pattern their designs. After considerable thought, in 2005 JWD Publishing was born and my first designer to be added was Alex Anderson. We have slowly expanded the JWD Publishing offerings. Currently our 15 designers offer an assortment of patterns that include bed quilts, wall quilts, quilt art, bags and totes, home décor, functional items, as well as a few fashion items. You can visit the JWD Publishing website to view our designers and the 75+ patterns we have available. You can view my quilt patterns below. As you can see, they are based on traditions with a contemporary flair.
