Octosaurus Rex Quilt

Hello there!


We have just had a wonderful bank holiday weekend here in UK.  And what made it so wonderful?  The beautiful sunny weather!


I spent the bank holiday Monday in Florence Court, Enniskillen, with 2 of my girls, having lots of photo fun, and enjoying this wonderful National Trust house.

It was a beautiful day, learning all about the women (upstairs and downstairs) in Florence Court's history.


Also this week, the current issue of Quilt Now hit the shops, and in it you can find my Octosaurus Rex Quilt, designed for Makower using their Rex Collection of fabrics.

This quilt design is full of secondary patterns, and the larger Placement print is perfect for fussy cutting.

Here's what I wrote as my source of inspiration:


"I live not far from the Giant's Causeway, a 60 million year old formation of multi-sided volcanic stones. So I thought it would be fun to design Jurassic sized shapes around these cute dinosaur fussy cuts and fabrics. The Octagon blocks slot neatly side by side just like the stones at the Giant's Causeway!"

There is a lot of piecing in this quilt, and it is a decent size at 60" x 72".  However you could easily reduce the number of blocks and make a smaller quilt for a younger dinosaur lover!

So if you have a little one who is mad about all things Jurassic, then these fabrics are your perfect choice!


You can see the full collection here, and my Octosaurus Rex Quilt pattern is also available via the Makower UK website.


Happy sewing!
