I made it! My Around the Block quilt was bound before the end of September. I’m so happy with how it came out. I found a another dotty black fabric for the backing: I’m so pleased with how this came out I’m keeping it. It’s the perfect size to cover my feet and legs when… Read More »

I had no more grey fabric so I couldn’t cut any more… Read More »

It was so fun seeing fabrics that I don’t see at my local quilt store. I fell in love with some Alison Glass Sun Print Mercury Fabric and couldn’t resist buying… Read More »
I’m accustomed to doing quilts with at least one colourway being a constant fabric. For this project I decided to push myself and make both colourways scrappy. I’m pretty happy with how it’s turning out. The pattern is a simple double four patch. This way I can say I’m joining in with the APQ Four… Read More »
