I don't often make quilt designs by others, but from time to time I do. Today I'm doing just that. I'm making Trinity Celtic Knot designed by Deborah Cohen. Deborah's version is a scrappy quilt using many fabrics in three color groups.
This week I made a new star runner quilt, a little different than the pattern. Instead I have mixed up the stars and made a scrappy kind of look.
Today I was looking through my stash, thinking about my next quilt project when I came across a bunch of 2 1/2" cut squares. They were mostly blue but with a few other colors. I sifted through them and thought to myself, "these are not much use to me really but I reckon they would be great in a certain pattern".
I really enjoy when quilters send me photos of their quilts made from one of my designs. I receive these quite often and like to share them with all my readers. Jen recently made my Twisted Ribbons quilt in purples and green. It turned out beautiful don't you think? I really like the border fabric Jen!
Here I am again with another block for "Entwined Star", just because I could not resist making another. The first was so much fun that this time I wanted to try a more autumn tone block.
I've been eyeing up this pattern for quite some time, not that I'm a patchwork quilter, but still wishing I had some spare time to make up a block or two, just too see how it looked. Today, I finally decided I should just get right to it and as I did, I wrote some notes that might also help you along the way.
I was horrified when I read the news and watched a demonstration on how easy it was to steal someone's credit and debit card information yesterday.... and what's more, you don't even know it is happening!
I've been having some fun this evening creating a catalog on issuu. Here are the results of what I did. Click on the expand button to make a full page and use the arrow buttons on the left and right of the catalog to scroll the pages. Enjoy!
As a follow on from last week, I made a decision on the white sailor. He just looked more appealing to me, however he doesn't photograph so well.
If you are a follower of my blog posts (which happen to be far and few between at the moment), you will know that once a year I like to try to revive one of my patterns and make it better than it was. Last year it was "A Freshness of Spring" and this year it is "I Love Teddy".
