Blue Lagoon Quilt

Hi everyone!   How is your summer going so far?   We have had some decent summer weather here in Belfast recently, but alas I'm still surrounded in plaster dust and paint in my new house. So time out to enjoy the sunshine is rare!   In the meantime I'll have to make do with […]

Spots 'n Squares Quilt

Happy Wednesday to you all!   Question: Do you have a favourite fabric designer?   Most quilters who are engaged with an online community of sewers have designers or fabric lines that they just seem to fall in love with.   Perhaps it's the preferred colour palette, story telling patterns, geometric patterns or ditsy themes […]

Mother's Day Pot Holder!

I realise Mother's Day is a while ago now, but I haven't told you about a wee make I made my mum!   I have made mum pot holders before, and was pleased to see them put to good use in her kitchen recently.   But continuous use means they get a little 'worse for […]

Chevron Heaven Quilt

I love Chevron quilts! They are simple to make and are so versatile in providing many different designs.   One of the simplest ways to make chevrons is using half square triangles, and with clever fabric placement, or mixing up your fabric 'values' (low volume, high volume) you can achieve all sorts of wonderful patterns. […]

Buying Fabric from outside UK

If you aren’t a regular at buying fabric from non-UK online fabric stores, you may get a shock when you place an order, and then take delivery of a grey Customs Card from the Royal Mail, instead of your much anticipated bundle of fabric goodness!     And to add insult to injury, not only […]

Warning! Fabric Marking Pens

As a Quilting tutor I'm often asked what is the best way to mark the right side of a project ready for quilting.   I've learned that when sewists hit on a reliable product they like, they tend to stick to it!  Afterall, when so much money, time and effort is put into quilt making, having […]

Houndstooth Quilt

The design process can be an interesting one!   I remember one time in Bee Blessed we decided to make arrowhead blocks. For some reason, when I looked at that block I saw different patterns, and filed those ideas away! Earlier this year I made this Starburst quilt, for a summer issue of Popular Patchwork, […]
