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.
This month I decided to design an embroidery block - of course, that means it can double as a quilting design as well.
Have you ever found yourself short of fabric for your quilt backing or simply want to use up some of your scraps/stash? Today Anita Eaton shares some thoughts on how she makes scraps work for quilt backs.
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.
I've been working on a new quilt but the pattern isn't quite ready to release yet however I did send out a little teaser the other day. Did you see it?
This month I am going to include instructions for three 6" blocks that can be used on their own or included in previous blocks. You may remember the May block
I'm so happy to finally launch my latest color wash pattern this week. You may have seen the sneak previews last month.
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!
Last week I posted about my sleeve inserts for the knitting needle case I made. This week I wanted to share some additions and adjustments that I've made over the last week to complete my case.
