I found this pattern on the Wedding Dress Blue blog under the Calico Rose quiltalong tab at the top of the page. The quilt done in whites and scrappy fabrics didn’t interest me but I could imagine bright scrappy fabrics twinkling on a black background.

More Baby Quilts

By | November 11, 2018

Marc came home not long ago and told me that a friend of ours is in the family way once again. It’s a little too early to know if it’s a boy or a girl so I’m making sure I’m prepared. I’m undecided whether to keep this new quilt in the same theme as the… Read More »

A Hundred Hugs

By | September 20, 2018

I’m pleased to report another finish. This time it’s the Hundred Hugs Quilt. I made the top a few years ago and finally quilted and bound it in the last few weeks.   I love that it’s scrappy yet has a controlled colourway of green and blue. The quilt is a bit crinkly but has been… Read More »

I finally have a finish. Believe it or not it’s my first one in 2018.  I started making these happy blocks earlier this year and actually finished a quilt with them  in the same year I started working on them.  I’ve made lots of tops in that time but never got them past the finish line. Life… Read More »
