Fall Into A Quilt Along Block Eight Today brings a fantastic pattern for block 8 in the Fall Into A QAL. Jennifer Fulton of Inquiring Quilter, has designed the Autumn Leaf block, it is a paper pieced block and super easy and quick to make. Jennifer kindly included a beginners version of the block, for anyone who might not be familiar to the technique. I decided to make the original leaf. I wasn’t easy choosing oranges and yellow for this wonderful block, as I am fast running out of oranges and yellows. But I am determined to only use from my stash. Here is myRead More →

New Pattern Pinstripe Crossing Pinstripe Crossing In July, I started something new. I started a new tester group to help me test out my new patterns, plus was in the process of creating a secret Facebook group just for my testers. One of my testers Richard Eaves, tested Pinstripe Crossing for me (crib size), and I love the end result very much. This pattern was meant to be released round about 9 July 2017. But things went very pear shaped straight after that. I am only now feeling some normality returning to my life, so after I finish of some commitments with some hops andRead More →

Summer Sensations Camping Today marks the first day of the Summer Sensations Blog Hop hosted by Marian from Seams To Be Sew. I am not sure which fountain she finds all the energy and time from, but I want the GPS location please. So, what do I think of when I think of Summer Sensations, well for me it is camping. I love summer and camping in nature, looking up at the stars and feeling the breeze on my face, listening to the crickets singing their songs. I especially love the thought of summer right now, as I live in the Southern Hemisphere and itRead More →

Cabbage Patch Kids This cute pattern was designed with someone in mind who loves them. Her name is Amber, and she is my official pattern tester. Amber has an extensive collection of Cabbage Patch Dolls, so when I was thinking of what to make her, the answer was obvious. This one is from the Forest Friends Series, the Frog. I just love how this pattern worked out. Orange, green and blue is Amber’s favorite colors, making the decision on which doll to make much easier. I scrolled through all the dolls, until I found one with those colors, wallah. Done. The blue and orange fabricRead More →

Philosophers Stone from Harry Potter The is the newest pattern made for a request. The lady, Jo, is making a Harry Potter quilt for her son, and wanted this faceted Philosophers Stone, to add to the patterns. The pattern is 10 inches finished, and paper pieced. The patterns are colored, to make it easier to sew the pattern. You can see from Jo’s block, that she chose to make the bottom a book, but this can be left as the background as well.
