The people have spoken – I got a couple of requests for alternate sizes for X Plus blocks, so here you go. I’ve done an additional set of templates for both 3″ and 6″ blocks in the same document for convenience. Here’s the button. Clicky clicky! It’s free!
So yesterday I saw this spectacular Apple Pie block by @heyporkchop and I knew I must have it. After a little conversation, googling, and otherwise exploring I’ve found this to be a traditional pattern, but I don’t have any info on the background of it. I’ve ordered Block Base (!!) so hopefully I’ll have more […]
The X Plus block made its rounds last year. I really liked the quilts I saw but never got around to making any blocks. I finally sat down with Badskirt’s tutorial earlier this week, looked at the instructions, and promptly said huh uh. No way. Not happening. I have a couple of issues here: first, […]
The conversion block this week is called Spider Web. It’s not what we think of now as a spider web block actually, but that’s what it was named when it was published originally in 1938. I’ve decided that in order to move ahead with the conversion project and finish it before the end of the […]

Hey y’all. I’d like to think that people really want this, but actually no one’s asked me for it, so why not give it out anyway :p I loved making this triangle section for my low volume arrow quilt, so figured I’d share the template for it, because I’m nice like that. I’m pretty sure […]
I have been working so hard to get this pattern out to the public and the release is finally here…… *drumroll* Now presenting everyone’s favorite unhappy kitty! Here’s the version my tester Julie Bossert made. I LOVE. IT. Check out Julie’s blog here. I would rank this pattern at a healthy intermediate, due to […]
