March blocks

March blocks

Here are my three March “Wings of Spring” blocks for donation. I was able to make them before I went to visit my daughter and grandson, in a somewhat chillier than expected Wales, with the full intention of posting whilst I was there, but all of us had horrible colds and so nothing much happened! (Except of course some quilt fabric shopping, and a wonderful visit to the Kaffe Fassett exhibition at the American Museum in Bath!) Back...

Alternate Nine Patches

Alternate Nine Patches

These four blocks are mine for donation. These are the same four blocks in four different rotatations. I was also playing with the new editor, so maybe the pictures don’t appear like they should! What I discovered about the new editor is that if you press enter twice you get a new “block”, but couldn’t figure out how to remove the empty “block”. If some text is typed in it, then the edit bar appears and you...

A Quilt idea for Scrappy Star blocks

A Quilt idea for Scrappy Star blocks

For those of you who celebrate it, I hope you had a peaceful Christmas.  A reminder to everyone that the drawing will take place on this coming Monday, New Year’s Eve.  As my time zone is about 7 hours ahead of most of you (UTC+02),  I will try to do it as close to mid-day Eastern Standard Time (UTC-05) as possible. And, after falling down the rabbit-hole of looking at pretty quilt pictures on the web, I found an idea for a quilt top with...

December – Scrappy Stars

December – Scrappy Stars

Welcome to December!    I am Karen N and I live in the suburbs of Cape Town in South Africa.  This month we are making a fairly simple star block.   I am very glad that I had the last month of the year, although Nann’s block is a hard act to follow!    The block finishes at 6-inches square, in either scrappy blues or scrappy purples.  You may make up to 9 blocks for the drawing. You will find the pdf pattern this link:  Dec2018 Block...
