Bargello Swirl by Ruth Blanchet made using Hoffman FabricsThis quilt is circular as you can see but are you aware that there are no curved pieces to be cut or stitched? This suits me! I'm not into curved piecing at all! The whole project is straight pieced..... and yes, it is a Bargello Quilt.

I don’t know if you are like me, but I can’t tell you how many marking pens if have - Sharpies and fabric markers of all thicknesses. I wanted to make use of them, so I came up with something where I could use a lot these pens to make my own fabric textures.

How Barbara Began Making Victorian Sewing Boxes

Barbara Dieges' Victorian Box 001I had nothing to do one day, so I spent it at the Pasadena (CA) Library. They have an awesome section, or did at the time, of old magazines. When I am talking old, I am being literal. This padded hexagonal box was illustrated in an 1867 Godey’s Lady’s Book; which was a lady's magazine of that day. There was no pattern, so I used the illustration to make my own. The pictures all show lace, but if you don't like lace and ruffles, you can just use cording. Cording is used on three of the lids, so the lace can be dispensed with on the other three. I like the lace, because, first of all, it is pretty and it helps hide the gap between the lids.

When I first heard of "door quilts" I thought it was sort of a strange idea. But, now I see what fun they can be. I designed a couple for my Celebrations class. They can be anything.... I designed name quilts for a child's room, but it doesn't have to be limited to that idea. It could be "Dad's Study"... or "Do Not Disturb, Homework in Process"... or "Nap Time" or a Holiday Quilt, quilts for various seasons, a memory quilt, a quilt to Celebrate your child's favorite team or movie star or.....
