You could use these as pot holders as well as mug rugs. They would look lovely in a modern kitchen. They would also be a great gift for an artist or art student. This is a good project for quilters just learning to foundation piece.

This cute Grand Piano quilted hot pad is sure to play a sweet note in your kitchen. The pattern uses one 10" square from your favourite Layer Cake and some black and white scraps. The keyboard is simple foundation paper piecing. The black bias binding completes it beautifully.


This hot pad pattern measures 12" x 9" (30cm x 22.5cm), which is the size of a small standard backing pan or dish.

Tulip Basket Mini Quilt Pattern from Cut Stitch and Piece

I'm excited to be introducing my newest mini quilt pattern Tulip Basket just in time for spring. The basket is two paper pieced log cabins, and the simple tulips are done in hand stitched appliqué. It measures 19" x 18" (47.5cm x 45cm). This mini quilt uses a soft taupe colour palette inspired by the beautiful quilts by Japanese quilt artist Yoko Saito.


I think the rich tones of the tulips are stunning against the quiet neutrals. If you have basic appliqué and paper piecing skills, you can make this cheery spring project in no time at all ...

Indian Summer//Primitive Style from "...laugh yourself into *Stitches*, follow me..." ~Shakespeare~



Different not only in fabric choices, Indian Summer 'primitive style', eliminates the corner triangles around each log cabin center.

A small change can make a big difference!

Look out the window....this is where i grew up....and where my boys played for endless hours on the farm.
