I’ve just had a copy of Today’s Quilter (issue 43) which has my fans quilt project in!
But on reading through it I realise that at one point I say to use the blank quilt to colour in and decide what colours to use for your own quilt. Except I can’t find the blank quilt in the magazine. So for those of you who bought the magazine and wanted a quilt to colour in, or for those who just enjoy colouring – you can download a blank fans quilt here.
And here are some of the ideas that I had come up with if you need a little more inspiration.
Much interest was expressed in a quilt I showed at a talk the other night and I realised that I had never got around to publishing the pattern.
So today I have done so and you will be able to find Autumnal Stars on my Payhip page if you are in the EU, and on my Craftsy page otherwise.
This is a large wall-hanging (about 49 inches square) and is not too difficult to make – I have provided templates if you prefer to cut those pointy star shapes without a rotary cutter (it does make it easier to fit them together).
You can make this for any season and have fun playing with the colour placements to alter the curved effects.
February already, and the fourth block in our quilt-along Block of the Month quilt. This time it’s the turn of Churn Dash, but with an added twist – ‘Churn Dash Variation’, if you like – I have added Flying Geese units to the traditional block.
