Medallion Quilt Project

By | September 18, 2019

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 »

I must confess, I never did make a Y2K Quilt.

I had just enough of… Read More »

Nine Patch Quilt

By | August 5, 2019

I started making some 9 patches a la Bonnie Hunter. Scrappy whites/lights, scrappy anything goes colours, darks in the center and outside corners and lights in the other positions. I made a bunch with no real plan in mind. Simple pleasurable, mindless sewing – the best kinkd.  The a friend showed me a quilt .… Read More »

Bento Box Quilt

By | June 28, 2019

The website where I found this Bento Box quilt pattern has long since taken down the tutorial, Too bad since it was a very well written pattern so it is a pity I can not link back to it. I guess that is what happens when you work on a project for 4 or 5… Read More »
