Gumbo Design Studios offers patterns for your creative sewing pleasure. Look on the Quilt Patterns section for wall quilts,bed,lap and baby quilts.

Each pattern includes some lagniappe (lan-yap), a little something extra, different in every pattern. There are family recipes and explanations on local New Orleans history and culture with most pattern names derived from the same sources.  For instance the lagniappe for Jambalaya Place mats is a recipe for Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya.

The copy has been proofed and tested,so every effort has been  made to create clear,easy instructions.
