Ivan The Quilt Guard Dog

Every few months I do a quilt show I call "quilt on the fence" right in front of my 100 year old home in Red Lodge Montana. While I'd like to believe that the star of this show is my quilt, Ivan, our beloved rescue dog, turns out to be the main attraction!

Paint Your Pony

New pattern, hooray! A very modern black, white and red design. When I sent my daughter a picture of this dot layout, she said "oh I want one".

About Me

Welcome to Calamity Quilter, where quilting meets adventure! We're a small-town Montana gal's dream come true, founded by yours truly, Wanda Thomas, a retired nurse turned quilting extraordinaire.

At Calamity Quilter, we're all about finding fulfillment through discovery and new experiences. We're restless, adventurous, and definitely not afraid to march to the beat of our own sewing machine. (Who needs the mainstream when you can have your own quilting revolution, am I right?)

As a quilter and quilt pattern designer, I pour my heart and soul into creating unique designs that are as authentic as the wild, untamed landscapes of Montana. Our downloadable PDF quilt patterns are like little pieces of artistic freedom, just waiting to be stitched together.

With patterns like "Paint Your Pony" and "Mountain Lodge," you can create stunning quilts that capture the spirit of the great outdoors. Whether you're a seasoned quilter or just starting out on your stitching journey, we've got something for everyone.

And here's the best part: all our quilt patterns are instant digital downloads. No need to wait for snail mail to deliver your creative inspiration. Just a few clicks, and you'll have your pattern ready to go faster than you can say "half square triangles".

So, grab your fabric, thread your needle, and join us on this quilting adventure. Calamity Quilter is here to help you unleash your inner quilting maverick and create something truly extraordinary. Let's stitch up some calamity!
