Recently I’ve been participating in the #mysmallworldqal over on instagram. The original pattern is by Jen Kingwell (I worship at her quilty feet) and it’s found in the Spring 2015 issue of Quiltmania. I’ve just finished part 2 and expect to dive into part 3 today. The pattern is written in a fairly inefficient way, […]
I originally designed this pattern to go along with the triangles for arrows expansion pack, and it IS good for that, but it’s good for so many other things I decided not to limit its description as just going with the arrows. You can stick these little blocks together to make straight lines of tiny […]
You might recall the llama pattern I released last year, Leonard the Llama. For some reason I got it into my head that I wanted to do a close up of Leonard’s face. I think mostly I’ve always been unhappy with his expression in the original pattern. Don’t get me wrong, I did it that […]
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 […]
Man, I’m really cranking out the patterns in 2014! My goal is to make 12 total conversion patterns, and this one is #6, technically. (I don’t count fire star, it’s just a variation of ice star.) So a few weeks ago on Sew, Mama, Sew Amy from Badskirt shared how to make some glorious Castle Wall […]
