Majestic Lions


A quick and easy block.

Today I share a finished block of Majestic Lions. This block is a free pattern on Fandom in Stitches.

Jennifer Ofenstein posted for help, asking for sewn blocks of the Broadway Lion for a quilt she is making for a young man moving into his own apartment.

I was more than happy to help, the block is very quick and easy to make. And I had fun making him.

Mine went of in the post this morning and hopefully will reach her in about 2 weeks.

What else have been up to?

I finished off a commissioned quilt for a lady, it took 4 weeks, from piecing the quilt top to quilting it on my domestic machine, this took longer than it did piecing the pattern together. There is a lot of straight line stitching on the quilting.

The original quilt looked like this

You can find this pattern on


And some secret sewing for Fantastic Beasts 2, Christmas Caroling Row Along and 2 other events not finalized yet.

Some more plans in action with Jennifer Ofenstein for next year, watch this space!

And my latest TTMT video where I talk about all this and more.

Have a happy crafty week.

Modern Geometric Kaleidoscope Quilt


The new pattern is now ready!

Modern Geometric Kaleidoscope Quilt.

Modern Geometric Kaleidoscope Quilt

There are so many modern quilts out there that I love so much and it inspired me to design one of my own. Plus I love the look of geometric quilts, they look so crisp and clean. And so Modern Geometric Kaleidoscope Quilt is now all finished.

This is an easy paper pieced pattern, that went together super fast, the quilting actually a lot longer to do than it took me to make the quilt top.

For my quilt I decided on varying shades of orange and a white background. I just love the cheerfulness of a nice and bright orange.

A close up look of the quilting.

I stitched in the ditch around the outside and inside of each square.

Then I used my walking foot and echo quilted all around the squares.

You can download this pattern from my Craftsy store here.

The pattern consists of 1 block + 1 reversed block. You will need to print 2 of the normal block patterns and 2 of the reversed block to make the full 40 x 40 inch wall hanging / table topper.

Or you can make just 1 block to make a nice, big throw pillow (20 x 20 inches).

Single block

Full Quilt


I really liked making this quilt and it was a nice break from my normal quilting meander. The Echo Quilting was fun, if not a bit labor intensive.

So what is next?

Batting and backing has been bought for another new pattern, plus my Star Trek quilt.


First I need to do some more secret sewing for my Fantastic Beasts 2 Quilt Along starting in September this year. It will last for 4 months and there will only be 2 patterns every week. 1 Pattern each week will be very easy to make (designed by me) and the 2nd pattern will be more advanced for the more adventurous paperpiecer (designed by Kristi Lehane)

There will also be 2, yes 2 completely different layouts to choose from this year. So exciting.

The quilt along will be hosted again this year by Fandom in Stitches, I will also post here as well, if you want to follow the quilt along here (that will be awesome).


That’s all for now, I hope you enjoy the pattern.

Have a fantastic crafty and sewing week.
