Doing The Double!

At the risk of boring you all rigid, I’m pleased to show you my latest magazine submissions!

I didn’t realise I would be twice featured in the October issue of Quilt Now (out in UK this week). The theme this issue is ‘Single Block’ designs.

First up, Dissected blocks:

My Projects in Quilt Now Oct15

I thought, ‘what would happen if you take a traditional block and pull it apart!’ (sad, the places my mind goes!).

First I created a mini quilt (30″ x 30″) based on a dissected ‘churn dash’ block.

The old grey matter kept smokin’ and out came 2 more blocks which I turned into cushions.

Keeping to a Kona Snow background with a limited colour palette helps achieve the effect of the dissected blocks.

Next up, Moroccan Mix Table Runner and Trivet:

I actually made this first, back in May.

Inspired by the ‘Antique Tile’ block I started pulling fabrics that I thought would represent the depth of colour in Moroccan Tiles. The trivet was simply an after-thought, using up the leftovers!!

I hope you don’t mind me sharing my publications here!  I’m not trying to blow my own trumpet – it’s just so nice to finally be able to show you stuff I’ve made which I’ve had to keep under wraps for a bit!

And just to give you some warning – there are lots more publications in the pipeline!!
