Churn Dash Fun

By | October 20, 2019

I found some lovely fabric in my stash, that for some reason I had not used yet; “Mugungalyi” -Circle by Nutex 100% cotton www.nutex.co.nz – great quality with a lovely feel and thickness.

Here is a picture of my Galaxy Quilt top. It’s a design by Deb Tucker. It was started at retreat last year and had needed the outer border put on which as you can see has finally happened. As this is a bit wider than I like to handle on my home sewing machine so… Read More »

One of the guild projects at my guild this year is to have members make a medallion quilt. I have to admit when I heard this at first I groaned. Medallion quilts don’t do it for me for one and for another I wasn’t sure I wanted different people working on quilt for me with… Read More »

The big & little patch quilt

By | September 8, 2019

I needed to make 44 – 16 patch blocks to make a border on a quilt.  I’d made more than half of them when I pulled the quilt out and realised I’d been making the blocks with 2″ squares when quilt was based on 2.5″ squares. That was a fun moment – NOT.  Out came… Read More »
