KEEPING DOLLY COZY from That's Sew Kerry

Quilted Sleeping Bag

Quilted Sleeping Bag Tutorial:

1.When your baby sister asks Santa for 'blankets for Dolly' you do what you can to help the big guy out! There are several ways this can be done, this is simply the way I made them and thought you may find it useful if you have small people who also want to keep their Dolly warm.


All squares are 2.5 inches the amount you need will vary depending on the dimensions of the doll you are making for. Dolly is 18 inches tall and is similar to the American ...

Two Antique Quilts from Quilting Stories

Summer in France

Summer in France

Two antique quilts

Hi everyone! Back to Greece... and to my blog after a long summer in France. I am still busy there restoring my 19th century summer house bought five years ago. I love doing this job and especially  decorating, with the drawback that it keeps me temporarily away from quilting. 

I have sent most of my quilts, the antique ones and those done by me, from Greece to France, with the aim of a future exhibition, but not only : my house is going to be filled with quilts on beds, on couches, hanged on walls...

The above picture ...

The finished Scrappy Cross Quilt from Red Pepper Quilts

Scrappy Cross Quilt - Tutorial Available - © Red Pepper Quilts 2020

My Scrappy Cross Quilt is finally finished. It's taken several weeks to get around to stitching down the binding, and longer still to take photos. For the last decade or so I have worked almost exclusively on one project/quilt at a time. It's just how things rolled. But over the last 12 months I've added more and more projects to my steadily growing selection of works in progress, and whilst all that is good and well, I have knuckled down and I am keeping myself occupied by completing those quilt tops, basting, quilting and binding. Done ...

Scrappy Cross Quilt and Tutorial from Red Pepper Quilts

Work in Progress

My first machine pieced quilt for the year! It's been so long since I switched on the trusty Juki but having plenty of home time and a significant fabric stash meant there was no excuse for lounging around. Although I did plenty of that too.

Scrap quilts are my favorite, especially simple designs pieced from small patches of fabric. I have a shoe box full of 2 inch squares that I add to regularly. Whenever I cut fabric for a quilt and have a small scrap of fabric leftover, I cut that piece into 2 inch ...

A Hand Pieced Trip Around the World Quilt from Red Pepper Quilts

A Finished Quilt

When I say things are slowly returning to "normal" I mean super slowly ... like snail paced ... but I am good with it. I am embracing slow and as well as being keen to learn new techniques. This quilt is entirely hand pieced. Hand pieced as in - - - - - running stitch with needle, thimble, and thread.

It turns out that I can do slow, I can hand piece and sew secure seams; the quilt top did not fall apart when I picked it up, nor when I pressed the seams! In addition, I thoroughly enjoyed hand piecing the quilt top ...

Dashing through the crisis from The Academic Quilter

Hello all! How are you all doing? Show of hands-- who has resorted to cutting their own hair? Who has thought about it? Yes, me too. I need to get this hair out of my eyes really soon. Although I'm out of contact lenses, so I'm not sure I'd be able to see anything anyway.

THANK YOU all so much for your supportive and kind comments on my last post. I especially want to thank those of you who are no-reply and I couldn't thank personally. I really, really appreciate all your kindness. I'm doing ...

Update 1 – 2019 Squares in Squares from Lotus Cove Quilting

2019 Squares in Squares completed top
I’ve completed piecing the top, measuring 72×108. The bottom two rows are tucked under – too long for my design wall!
Next step is using all the leftover fabric strips to piece the back. I’m hoping it will look like a giant square bulls-eye. Stay tuned for more!

Modern Circles and Squares Quilt from I Love Baby Quilts!

It's finished! This queen sized modern circles in squares quilt is done. It may be my favorite quilt so far. I based it off of this baby quilt I made last year and made it bigger and better. You can't see the quilting in this far view, but the quilting is the best part.

I thought I'd take you through the process, in case you'd like to make one for yourself!
First, decide on how many blocks and what sizes of circles you'd like. For the baby quilt my circles were smaller, but for this ...
