Scrappy Lattice in Blue from Dizzy Quilts

I've had the Scrappy Lattice pattern from Bonjour Quilts in my pattern stash for a while and I also had a stack of 3.5" blue squares so I got to work!

This was such a fun project to work on. The pattern has a number of sizes and you could go crazy with the colours - Bonjour Quilts has a blog post on making this pattern in the colours of the rainbow and it looks fantastic. I may have to cut up more squares from my scrap bins and make more of these quilts!

The sashing is Kona Ash ...

Mountainside Quilt Finish from Dizzy Quilts

For some reason, I always doubt myself when it comes to putting fabrics together to make quilts. I relied on pre-cuts for such a long time where you get a little bit of fabric from an entire collection, that I don't feel like I built up my skills for pulling fabrics. 

This quilt pattern however, requires 19 fat quarters and one accent fabric. I had a fat quarter bundle of the Twenty-Three collection by Eric & Julie Comstock for Moda but knew I'd need to add a few fat quarters from my stash. I looked at one of the ...

Ribbon Heart Mini Quilt from Dizzy Quilts

Like many people around the world, I've been working from home since March 2020. I set-up my home office in a corner of our dining room but with the exception of a table runner on top of my desk and a magnetic board up on the wall, I've basically been staring at a blank wall for months now.

The hubby did say he's planning on re-painting the dining room very soon so I can't go crazy and start hanging pictures of the grand-kids just yet (I received some really nice pictures during the holidays) but I ...

Gather 'Round Quilt from Dizzy Quilts

Yet another Bonjour Quilts pattern all made up! This one is called Gather 'Round and I'm more than a little bit in love with it.

Besides the 3.25 yards of background fabric (which is Kona Ash in my version), this pattern doesn't require a whole lot - one yard of the chevron fabric (Kona White here) and 0.75 yard of the motif fabric (Kona Berry). I can picture it being pieced from a variety of different fabrics in the same colour family though - so you potentially could use fat quarters.

Kristy who is the designer behind Bonjour ...

Diamonds in the Deep in Grey from Dizzy Quilts

I pinned the Diamonds in the Deep quilt pattern by Bonjour Quilts a few years ago but I somehow only bought the pattern recently. And then a few weeks ago I finally started cutting the fabric to make it. I hesitated on the colours to use for a while but ended-up settling on Kona White and Kona Coal both of which I had plenty of in my stash.

I wanted to do something a little bit different for the centre squares and used a fat quarter of some sparkly fabric.

For the backing, I used an old sheet my hubby ...

Catching Up from Needle and Foot

Oh my goodness – time is flying by. Nothing like a pandemic forcing all of us to stay home day after day to make a person busy, right? In March when all of this started I thought I would accomplish this huge to-do list due to being stuck at home. I created a list of blog posts to catch up on, pictured myself scrubbing the kitchen and bathrooms till they sparkled – it was going to be such a productive time. Ummm, what the heck? I have hardly posted here and it took me until yesterday to force myself to scrub one ...
