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.

I chose Banyan Batiks Banyan Classics fabrics. This collection includes the range of values to create the shading for the blocks. 

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

Hearted Beauties Release from Stitchin at Home

I have always wanted to make a New York Beauty Quilt. Whenever I spy one whether it's at a quilt show or on the net, they catch my eye.

'Hearted Beauties' is what happened after I played with designing my own New York Beauty blocks in a heart shape. Why a heart shape? Because I thought it might be neat to see what they looked like. Of course those hearts needed a setting and a quilt pattern was born.

Hearted Beauties

The Heart blocks are paper pieced, the rest of the quilt uses traditional piecing.

The quilt back shows ...

Ring Toss - a new pattern from an old design from Daphne Greig

I made a quilt with this 'ribbon-like' block over 20 years ago and I have wanted to design a pattern with it for a long time. My original quilt had the blocks in a traditional horizontal setting.

For this quilt I moved the rings around as I created the design using Electric Quilt sotware until they were overlapping.

The piecing is actually very straightforward. To simplify the piecing and avoid 'partial' or 'Y-seams' where the blocks overlap I sewed the units in horizontal rows.

I quilted free-motion feathers and swirls on my longarm, giving the lacy background lots of texture ...

More Finishes for 2018 from Daphne Greig

I'm on a roll!  Another pattern has been completed this year.

Zen Chic is a quilt you can make in a weekend! Two types of log-cabin style blocks are used in the quilt.

I made my sample while working in the Victoria Quilters' Guild tent at our Saanich Agricultural Fair last September. I finally had time to write the pattern for you.

Fabrics are Sophie from Banyan Batiks, a new division of Northcott. I love the florals and textures and the graphic fabric for the border of the small quilt was the perfect 'ending'. These fabrics are delivering to ...

Pattern cover update from Patterns by Jen

I decided to upgrade the back of my covers where I list fabric requirements.

Old pattern back

When I first started, my patterns were simple and small enough that I could use a "pretty" font and make them "artistic."

Unfortunately, not only did that make it harder to read (who needs to read when it can look pretty, ha) it became harder and harder to fit in all of the requirements without causing confusion.

Enter the "easier to read" (hopefully) Fabric Requirements table.

New pattern back

Not only should it be easier to read, I can add backing and binding ...

Shibori = fun with 'stripes' from Daphne Greig

Banyan Batiks strive to provide the quilting industry with a higher quality batik and a finish that sews like no other.

My latest pattern uses the new Shibori collection.

Banyan Batiks has created this very ancient fabric style using the batik process and it is gorgeous! The background for my quilt is a TRUE WHITE batik with subtle patterning.
