Hi everyone, how is your February going so far?
It has been very wet and grey here all week, so I thought I’d cheer ourselves up during this ‘month of love’ with a sweet pattern offer!
During all of February, 2 of my Heart Patterns will be half price! Nice! Chenille Heart Cushion Pattern available here I love the snuggly tactile effect you get when you chenille fabric! It’s such a simple technique but always makes a statement! No special equipment is needed, just a really sharp pair of scissors, and several layers of cotton fabrics.
Included in this pattern is how to insert a zipper into your cushion!
‘Drunken’ Hearts Quilt Pattern available here Did you know you can create a heart shape using 4 drunkard’s path units and a square?
That’s exactly how we make the heart blocks in this pretty quilt.
And of course, you could make any size quilt you like once you know the block technique.
This pattern is also available in a
Dyslexic Friendly version, also half price. Seeing lots of heart projects online and in social media is definitely cheering me up! How about you? Happy sewing! Comments 0 Comments ( Leave comment) By Judith on February 11, 2018 0 Comments ( Leave comment)
Every now and then I get to make quilts as gifts.
Last November I became a Great Auntie for the first time! Can you believe it!
Sweet baby Rose was born and of course I wanted to make her a quilt!
Now it took me until the Christmas holidays (and then some!) to get going on this quilt.
Firstly I was stuck for inspiration, and then my quilty friend Geraldine of SophieBelleDesigns over on IG gave me the perfect idea! Hearts! (Thank you G!).
I had already picked up a girly bundle of floral fabrics from the quilting shop where I used to work, some ‘Fleurs Petite Bouquet’ (Brenda Riddle Acorn Quilts) and with the odd Tilda print thrown in I now knew what to do with them!
Using the fabulous
‘Heart Blocks in Multiple Sizes’ tutorial by Cluck Cluck Sew, I made 9″ blocks with 1″ sashing between them.
It wasn’t until after I finished quilting it that I realised all the fabrics have Roses in them! How cool is that!
The quilt finishes at 42″ square, which made a cute little bundle when wrapped up, ready to post to another cute little bundle.
And I’m pleased to say that both Rose and mummy love her new quilt!
Now the observant among you will know I usually photograph my quilts outside in natural light!
Well here’s why all of these photos were taken indoors!
