A Wintry Sight Earning Its Place on the Wall

Posted by on 14 December 2020 | 0 Comments

Wow how did Christmas get to be just a week away? This year has sped by quickly, yet seems so long... if that is possible! But being so close to Christmas, I decided it was way past time to get out my Christmas quilts so went digging in my quilt chest. While looking through them, I found my Fractured Winter quilt - one I don't often display yet it is so crisp with its blues and whites - definitely a wintry sight and one that should be out on display around this time of year.

Our last block for this block-a-thon is going to be a 8" applique block. It will be a quick block to use to fill in those missing spots in your quilt. You can use applique or simply use the design to make a quilted block instead.

Remember last week I mentioned a new pattern? Well, it is here now! Freshly released and a fun make with modern cutting techniques (or traditional if you prefer). My new quilt is called "Woodland Foxes" and is ideal for baby or toodler as you can make it in any size you require with ease - crib, cot, single or lap quilt.

Free-hand Embroidery and Beading

It always amuses me how one blog post leads to another. My recent post about how to make a knitting needle case sparked some added interest among quilters as the beading on the cover caught their eye. It's not something I teach in my free online class, just merely an extra feature added because I liked the effect!
