Origami Patterns


Hi there everyone!

I spent a few days at my daughter's house looking after the Cat babies. They were on a short holiday for their first year wedding anniversary. I almost can't believe the time has flown by since they were still getting ready for their BIG day...



I was looking through some of the patterns and found the Origami patterns. They're so cute and really easy too. They all measure 10" (26cm).

This is a new Origami Fan Tail pattern

This is the new Origami Horse pattern


These are some of the older origami patterns





 They're all in the Animals >>> Paper Animals  Category in my shop.

Have a lovely day!

October Block of the Month


Hello everyone!

It's already October and almost time to start the countdown towards the end of the year.
Can someone please step on the brakes?


Its time now for the Block of the Month with our Amazing and Odd Animal Alphabet.


Today we have a Kiwi Bird. Native to New Zealand.
Although its really quite well known, it remains an Odd Ball! and just the right candidate for our study.


Our test block was sewn up by my good friend Joan Wintersgill from Texas.
It's fantastic! I love this weird little bird.

Pattern can be found in the Shop (www.quiltartdesign.com
Look in the Block of the Month category.


Our Line up so far....
We're still waiting for L and M

****************************

Another bit of great news...

I've finished the Festive Season  magazine
20 Amazing patterns with a little Retro feel thrown in too.

Here is a look at what you can expect.
The magazine is already in the shop (www.quiltartdesign.com)



Have a lovely day!

Mini Quilt Swap 2019


Hello everyone!



Today I wanted to remind everyone about the Mini Quilt Swap that ends in a week's time.

If you have taken part then this is for you...

By now you should be finished the mini quilt and posting it out to your partner. We didn't post one to another, but moved around in a large circle, so the person you're posting to won't be the person you will be receiving from.

Thanks to everyone who has already posted out to their partners.




I've tried to keep up with who sent and who received, but its been all over social media and not emailed to me - and so - some of them Im sure I've missed. Now what to do.....

I'll just email each one of you again and you can reply to that email so I can mark it all off.
Once done I wanted to email each of the participants a surprise pattern.

Thanks to each of you for joining in and keeping the circle going. I really hope you've had fun with the patterns.

Have a lovely day!

Fall Landscape String Quilt


Hello everyone!

September is flying by....and I still have a ton of commissions to get to.
I've also been busy with a few new String Quilts for the shop.

This one is the Fall Landscape String Quilt
It measures 40" (102cm) and is on the Easy Intermediate level.
It has 8 rows with 8 blocks in each forming the secondary grid of the String Quilt.


I added a few fabrics in EQ8 to the pattern to see how it would look with patterned fabrics and not solids.


This one has a river that runs by it and the fall colours are more prominent.


This one has the stone coloured farm house and a dirt road instead of the river idea.

 Fall Landscape String Quilt can be found in the Sting Quilts OR the Landscapes Categories
 in my online shop. 


Have a lovely week!

Mosaic Tiles


Hello everyone!
I hope you're all well. Spring is here in all its weird glory with some days colder than winter and others hotter than summer.  So - to sum up - Im glad winter is over!!!

Today I wanted to show the new Mosaic Tiles I've made.
They are both on the easy level and in a group of 4 or more make a very interesting pattern.

This is Mosaic Tile #5 - 10" (26cm) Easy Level


 From this one block you can make a wall hanging or quilt that is really stunning. The placement of the fabrics really brings out different aspects of the mosaic design.



 This is Mosaic Tile #6 - Looks like Fall Leaves in a Tessellation.

The block measures 10" (26cm) and is on the Easy Level.
This one also has options for making the tile leaves with an inner border, without or each part of the leaf in a different fabric.



 This also makes a very interesting quilt or wall hanging using multiple blocks.


You can get your Mosaic Tiles in the GEOMETRIC category in my online shop. 

Have a lovely week end!
