Easy pattern for quilt – a scrappy quilter’s dream. from Pieced Brain

Easy pattern for quilt – a scrappy quilter’s dream.

Here is an easy pattern for quilt that beginners will love and scrappy quilters will swoon over! Make it with batiks as I designed it, or with your favorite fabrics.

Vintage Chic

I updated my pattern Vintage Chic using the Art Inspired: Music, Blue and Pink No. 2 collection by Anthology Fabrics and I think it is looking hot! The quilt measures 62-1/2″ x 76″ and the blocks finish at 12″. This is a good throw size quilt or lap quilt.

You only need to make flying geese – diagrams show how – and the center blocks are made of four ...

Scrappy Cross Quilt and Tutorial from Red Pepper Quilts

Work in Progress

Scrappy Cross Quilt and Tutorial | © Red Pepper Quilts 2020

My first machine pieced quilt for the year! It's been so long since I switched on the trusty Juki but having plenty of home time and a significant fabric stash meant there was no excuse for lounging around. Although I did plenty of that too.

Scrap quilts are my favorite, especially simple designs pieced from small patches of fabric. I have a shoe box full of 2 inch squares that I add to regularly. Whenever I cut fabric for a quilt and have a small scrap of fabric leftover, I cut that piece into 2 inch ...

A Stash Buster QAL from Quilt Doodle Doodles

I'm not even sure how many days we've been practicing self distancing. Seems like f-o-r-e-v-e-r but I know we can do it! My best friend and I had lunch the other day. You are wondering how right? Well we both went thru the drive thru at Chick Fil A and got our lunches, parked in a parking lot like the police do on donut break and visited with our car windows open leaving a nice distance between us. It was a great visit and sure to be one we won't forget! We talked about quilting and what ...

Mystic Journey - a new Patchworks Studio pattern from Daphne Greig


Here's an easy project that you can make in a weekend!  And you'll learn about 'value' as you make the quilt. The quilt is a great 'cuddle on the couch' size.

A centre square of colour adds interest to the quilt; choose your favourite accent colour.

Quilt size: 63" x 72" - Recommended Skill Level: Confident Beginner

Non-secret sewing! Something for me (or rather, the cat…) from Dimple Stitch

Hurrah! I’ve found something else I can show you which isn’t top secret!

Firstly, a little update on the chickens. The line-up has changed somewhat over recent months, we lost Priscilla (to a tumour) and Betty (fox) within a few weeks of another, which was really upsetting (softie over here shed a few tears…) and meant we were down to just two. It probably would have stayed that way – they were confined to their coop much more often due to fox-paranoia, and I didn’t want to cram more in and overcrowd them. However, a couple of weeks ...
