RIP Professor Severus Snape, Alan Rickman In memory of our favorite Professor, Severus Snape – Alan Rickman, may you rest in peace. I designed this pattern last year September for a friend.

Designed and tested by Vanda Chittenden 20 x 20 inch paper pieced with applique This pattern was inspired by Snape and his love for Lily. “But this is touching, Severus,” said Dumbledore seriously. “Have you grown to care for the boy, after all?” “For him?” shouted Snape. “Expecto Patronum!” From the tip of his wand burst the silver doe. She landed on the office floor,Read More →

Checkerboard – Play with me QAL Wow, we are into out second week of January already. And what a first week it was. Busy, busy, busy. In between many other things, I decided to tackle the Play with me QAL with alidatweloqdesigns. Alida has 9 wonderful boards to make into either place-mats, zip / roll-up bags and a pick-nick sized quilt. Each block will showcase a different technique and can be done as a quilt as you go method. I am happy about this, as I have not tried quilt as you go yet. So that will be a first for me.

Little sewing machine house In one of the quilting groups Lapkoors, that I am a member of, I offered to design a house in the shape of a sewing machine, for the little house quilt along. There has been a mish mash of styles, from applique to paper piecing, to normal piecing. And every quilter, has added their own personal touch to each block. All the blocks is 6″ excluding seam allowances. This is what I designed. You will notice that the stitching is not quite finished yet, still need to embroider some button holes in the buttons. The buttons is the colored circles. IfRead More →
