Dogs, Dogs, Dogs…For a Good Cause. from Made By Marney

This adorable handmade paper pieced DOG QUILT is being offered in an online auction, benefits to go to the Street Dog Foundation.

The quilt was lovingly paper pieced by Janet, using my dog patterns, of course! She donated all of the materials and her time for the Street Dog Foundation’s benefit. It would be great if you would show your support by placing a bid on this lovely quilt in the next 2 weeks, after which bidding will end.

How to square up a quilt block from The Crafty Quilter

After every quilt block I make, I check to make sure it’s the correct size – usually with a square ruler that is the same size I want the quilt block to be. But how to square up a quilt block that is larger than your ruler? We don’t all have a square ruler in every size available (wouldn’t that be nice). I have a simple solution to share with you, plus another option that works well too.

Check out how to square up a quilt block that is larger than your ruler.  I have two great methods to share that work for any size block. @ The Crafty Quilter

You’re going to need some freezer paper and a square ruler that is at least half the size of ...

Which Witch is Which? from Made By Marney

I’ve just designed two new witch blocks just in time for Halloween…

WANDA THE WITCH

This is such an easy pattern…using a striped fabric for Wanda The Witch’s hair makes it look like it has lots of texture. Wanda has such a beautiful wonky nose! Very witchy indeed!

GOOFY WITCH

My Goofy Witch has 2 sparkling teeth and a giant wart on her nose. Wouldn’t it be fun to make potholders from these two lovely witches? Which witch is which????

2020 is the year of staying home. It’s the year of sweatpants and old t-shirts and not knowing if I even own makeup anymore. There’s nowhere to go and no one to impress.

But sometimes I just want to feel fancy. I long for sequins and heels and sparkling diamond earrings. I want to see my husband in a well-tailored tux with patent leather shoes and a dapper bow tie. Is that too extreme for ANOTHER movie night at home? I think not! 

This week Jenny is whipping up a quick and easy Bow Tie Party quilt using ...

DISAPPEARING ACT from That's Sew Kerry



Disappearing Nine Patch 




Disappearing Nine Patch Tutorial


These blocks work really well if there is a contrast in the colours and fabrics you choose, ideally you want to have light, medium and dark fabrics. It's ok if you don't though as it's perfect for scrap busting.


Cutting:


Square size can vary depending on the size of block and/or finished quilt you want - as long as all squares are the same size it doesn't matter. For the purpose of this tutorial, I used a couple of charm packs so my squares are 5 inches.
