Mystery Flower Garden is the name of the fifth block in the Block of the Month Puzzle Quilt. You can download the instructions here. Don’t forget to check the tutorials page if you need help with cutting or making the units.
These are the two colour arrangements for the block which were used in the original quilt –
and here are two further ideas drawn with the help of EQ7.
We’ve had a bit of a break from building blocks but it is time to restart this series and add a few more blocks that use the Flying Geese units. First up is Big T. Just 4 Flying geese units and some HST (half-square triangle) units. Download the instructions for the block here and remember to look at the tutorials page for help in making the various units.
You can change the colours around –
Set the blocks together to make a quilt –
Add sashing between the blocks
Use alternate colourings in the quilt
or set the blocks on point (same blocks as above, but doesn’t it look different?!)
A new pattern has been added to the Craftsy page – Pink Windmills.
This is a really easy and fun quilt to play with. Just two simple units with some plain squares. Change the colours, change the units around and make lots of very different looking quilts!
and a complete colour change –
There are a couple more ideas included with the pattern, which also has a colouring and design sheet for you to print out as many times as you like so you can design your quilt before you start cutting (or even buying) your fabric!
This Christmas runner is really quick and easy. We’ve made it at workshops at The Corner Patch for a few years now and each time our beginner quilters have completed the top in the day. You can find the pattern on the Craftsy page here, but in the meantime here’s some photos of the results from this year’s students (not all of them wanted to do ‘Christmas’) –
We love the richness of the gold in this one.
Not so Christmas are the following two –
and back to Christmas again –
and finally the one made as this year’s shop sample
We just love the way this runner looks good no matter what fabrics you use, or where you place the emphasis.
