I've been wanting to make a block from the ABC quilt for a while. I'd really like to make them all, but let's start with one.

Grandmother's Puzzle revisited

Posted by Ruth on 25 March 2013 | 2 Comments

Last week I made a Grandmother's Puzzle block. It was a difficult block becaues the shapes within it did not form any sort of easy construction grid. By this I mean, there is no where on the block that you can draw a straight line from one side to the opposite side without cutting through another piece. This is the reason I had to use a set-in seam.

Today I have been looking at my quilt pattern Autumn Daisy. I first made this in 2003 and it was later published by Arbee Designs in 2005. It has been a very popular pattern to sew and makes a delightful table setting.

Last week I told you about Fiesta Bargello and showed photos of me putting it together. This week I want to share with you how I quilted it. Often for bargello quilts, I will just quilt wavy lines along the design, but this time I wanted to do something a little different.

In my selection of free block instructions I have mostly included 4-patch blocks and 9-patch blocks. Today I want to introduce a 5-patch block. This one is called a four-X Star block. I am making a 5" block but will also give cutting instructions for a 10" block as well.

Patchwork Quilt - stepping stone

Stepping Stones was a quilt I put together as a custom made job for a customer. It didn't have the printed blocks in it as I have in the photo below. It was just made in blue and yellow squares. Very easy to make with large pieces.

Getting Ready for Easter

I think as we get older, the days tend to go by faster. I am not sure why this is but I figured that I should at least be a little more prepared so certain dates don't sneak up on me. Reason why I have just made my Easter Sweets table runner available as a download.

Ohio Star - how small can you go?

Posted by Ruth on 7 February 2013 | 3 Comments

Tags: ,

Earlier this week I gave instructions for the Ohio Star quilt block. I gave it in three finished sizes 6", 9" and 12". Today I decided that I might try a small version. A 3" block. A 3" block means each section is 1" square - that makes pretty small triangles for the star points.

Bargello Swirls is a bargello design I created in 2011 using Hoffman Fabrics. I had been asked by many of my students to design and publish a circular bargello which is what prompted me.
