Today’s my special day for the Spring Fling paper piecing blog hop and I’m sharing my free design.
Since I can’t enter our Show & Tell events, I thought I’d share my hexie puzzle quilt with you this weekend.
Lately, I’ve been working on my Diagonals Quilt. These blocks, while lots of fun, really are time-consuming. However, I can finally see the end of the tunnel.
For my favourite block, I chose the Quartered Star as I really like how this block can be scrappy and still maintain it’s design effectively. Plus for the 12″ finished block, it’s great for using up charms to create the half-square triangles. Let’s get started with the tutorial…. it’s an easy one.
Don’t throw out those little bits… see what I did with a huge pile of small, otherwise useless, little bits for my Diagonals quilt.
This past weekend, I got reacquainted with my sewing machine and pretty fabrics and had some fun just sewing! Enjoy this free tutorial.
I need a new table runner for the kitchen… help me decide which option to make using a lovely Springtime charm pack.
I finally got to spend some time in my sewing room this weekend and finished up my Maple Leaves tutorial for the Glorious Autumn Quilter’s Block Party.
I’m thrilled with the response so far to the Sandy Quilt Block Drive. Here’s the Wonky Scrappy Log Cabin Tutorial. This is an easy and fun block to put together.
I have a free pattern for you today! Pumpkin Topiary is a 10″ paper pieced pattern that you can make into a cute wall hanging in time for Halloween this year.
Today, the block I designed for the Christmas in July Block-A-Thon, hosted by Free Spirit Fabrics, is now available. It’s a simple 6″ block that I called Bull’s Eye.
I’ve started working on my next scrappy quilt, The Ultimate Scrappy Quilt. Each block has 19 pieces and finishes at 7″ square.
