Another Black and White Quilt

By | August 17, 2018

While most of my quilting features bright colours, I’m a sucker for black and white prints. Not grey prints but rather prints that are just black and white. I’ve long been collecting them; to the point where I absolutely had to make something from them or I’d have to admit my hobby is buying fabric… Read More »

Ribbit Quilt

By | April 7, 2017

Made with Happy blocks as per Mary Quilts this quilt was super easy and quick to do.  It used 16 4.5 inch squares for the centre blocks.  The only hard thing about it was deciding what border to put on. The pink won and the final quilt looked like this: I had just enough of… Read More »

144 Patch Quilt

By | March 26, 2017

What does one do with an excess of 2″ black and various colour pieces of fabric? If you are me, you end up making a 144 patch 18″ quilt block with no plan in mind for said block. I showed a picture to my friend Bonnie and she suggested I use some green with the… Read More »

These are two quilts for girl at work who just had two twin boys. I was wanting the quilts to be similar but not exactly the same. I’m happy with how the one fabric unites the two quilts.

Friendship Star Quilt Top

By | January 28, 2017

I started off making a totally different quilt pattern but quickly realised that I had sewn my half square triangles together with the wrong fabrics paired up.  I had no more grey fabric so I couldn’t cut any more… Read More »
