Going North – Easy Strip Pieced Half Square Triangle Pattern – Simple Quilts for the Modern Home from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

Learn how to make Going North, the first pattern in my first book, “Simple Quilts for the Modern Home.”

Going North has expansive negative space, a hallmark of modern quilt design, so you just have one panel to piece. That makes it great if you are just learning, need a fast gift, or want some wide open space to practice your quilting on.

In this tutorial I walk you through how to strip piece, how to use the 45-degree lines on your 6×24-inch ruler to cut half square triangles, how to work with directional fabric and how to pin ...

New Puzzle Quilt Pattern! from Selvage Blog

Here's my first finish of 2019! A fun scrap Puzzle quilt measuring 45.5" x 60." I love this one; it reminds me of good family times. I used my scrap stash for this, including that black and white polka dot fabric that finds its way into many of my quilts. My sister Eileen gave me a pack of Cotton and Steel prints that I love. This pattern also has 6 photos of other design variations for inspiration.

Trending Up pattern and video tutorial – Easy beginner or fast quilt from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

I have been working with fabric companies for a little over two years to design quilt patterns that bring their fabrics to life, but I still get excited every time I am asked to take a look at a new collection months before it will be shown to quilt shop owners and quilters.

So last winter when QT Fabrics asked me to take a look at Marlena, a new line that was being developed for their Ink & Arrow modern quilting fabric division. Of course I said yes and then started to think of ways to make it work in a ...

» Charm About You

Some designs are organic and simple. I had drawn a quick sketch of this quilt and, as I was creating it, the dimensions and overall layout changed slightly from my original vision. It just worked, allowing myself to adapt the pieces and play with the blocks. 

The half dresdens work perfectly to create rising and setting suns, the bold mix of colours and solids/prints adds interest and I used both curved and pointed segments to suggest beams of light. The colours bring to mind the artist Clarice Cliff, her designs and use of colour are hugely inspirational.

I used ...
