Spool Star Holiday wreath from I Patch and Quilt

Do you remember the small wallhanging that I made using my foundation paper pieced Spool Star block? Playing with the Spool Star block is turning out very inspiring. So many ideas!

Let’s look at the first new layout, a Holiday wreath!

Stitch and Flip Adventures from Quiltwoman Blog

by Kathleen Khosravi of Olive Leaf Quilts

Have you ever looked at a quilt with thousands of little pieces and wondered how someone found the time and fortitude to make such a thing. Well, sometimes there are easier ways.

My latest pattern called, “Little Gems” uses a technique commonly known as the “stitch and flip” method. I love this method because it is accurate and simple. First one draws a diagonal line across the wrong side of a square. It is placed in the corner of a second square with right sides together. After sewing directly on the diagonal line ...

New Pattern - Windswept View from Daphne Greig

I finished another quilt this week and this one has a lot of meaning for me. Some of my favourite vacations have been here on Vancouver Island spending time at the beaches. Watching the water and the birds is so relaxing for me. You too?

The fabrics are a new collection from Northcott called Swept Away. The amazing ombre fabrics are very effective for the shaded borders.

My new pattern is now available in the Patchworks Studio Store and fabrics are available in stores now.

Use the Northcott Product Finder to find a store that carries these fabrics. Here's ...

QuilterChic -Cheryl Daines Brown

Flowers! I love flowers! I loved them enough when I was 5 that David Gilbert and I decided to try eating them. My dad had a beautiful bed of irises and the leaves must have looked delicious to our young, inquisitive, and inexperienced minds.

I just released a new quilt pattern, What a Lot of Flowers! This imaginative quilt is splashing with color! Appliquéd flowers and vines meander across three different-sized strips, with ...

Inventory Quilt Project from Stitchin at Home

Have you heard of the Inventory Quilt Project being hosted by Just Wanna Quilt? The idea is to use one piece of each fabric in your stash to make a quilt to show your stash all in one quilt. You can use fabrics in one colour, for example or maybe the more the merrier version. I'm the more the merrier kind a gal with my project.

 I am one of the featured designers and my turn to showcase my project and pattern is today March 4th.

The pattern I'm using is called 'Flipping Out'. I know strange name ...

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
