A long time in the making – the Positively Square quilt from Stitch and Yarn

I shared the first tentative pics of the making of this quilt back in September 2020, but the inspiration for it is lost in the mists of time. I do remember being motivated to play around with plus blocks when Curated Quilts did a callout for their Plus edition, but the actual specifics of this one are long gone...

Origami Pattern Testers from Blossom Heart Quilts

Once again, my fabulous pattern testers have absolutely rocked the Origami quilt pattern! I’m always blown away by the creativity and generosity of my testers for helping me release my patterns, and just wait until you see what I mean…

Baby Quilt

The baby quilt size for Origami is a sweet 39″ x 39″. The perfect size because you don’t need to piece a backing! I’m ALL for that.

Josephine made her’s in a range of beautiful blues, and as the Origami pattern is so quick to sew, she even had time to quilt and bind ...
