I often end my texts and emails with ‘Jxo’, my affectionate way of signing off with my initial followed by ‘kiss, hug’.

And this is how it translates into a bright and happy quilt!

 

 

Hugs & Kisses Quilt (Pretty Patches Feb17)

 

 

I submitted this to the February issue of Pretty Patches magazine, who wanted to brighten the dreary dark days of winter with a colourful and cheery issue.

This is a great scrap buster project, or you could run with a specific colourway e.g. summery pinks and yellows for a little girl ….

 

 

 

 

…. soft modern greys and blues for a boy!

 

 

 

 

The blocks are simple to piece together, and you could easily size the quilt up or down to suit.

So however you plan to celebrate your Valentines day this month, make sure it involves a cosy quilt made with love!

We’ve been experiencing something of a mini heatwave here in the UK this week!

Almost too hot to get out and enjoy some local delights (well, I did say almost!).

While my sewing room has been ‘closed’ for 2 weeks, it’s the perfect time of year to show you my Summer Rail Fence quilt!

This pattern is in the August issue of Pretty Patches (out now) and was the result of a fun weekend earlier in the year playing with scrappy strips!

I love the summery combo of oranges, soft yellows, pinks and teals, combined with the earthy brown stripe. Just look at the lovely styling it gets on the coordinated orange front cover!

The rail fence design is a classic, but there are many ways to give it a modern twist! And it is beginner friendly piecing too!

This would be an easy quilt to make for other seasons (think fresh Spring greens and yellows, warm Autumnal plums and browns) or even a Christmas version!

And of course, a great scrap buster project too!

Wishing you all some fun in the sun!signature
