New “Material”

Heh. New material. I kill me :-p

Though, I really am working on some. A friend of mine recently told me that she was interested in quilting but, sorta didn’t know where to start. So I’m working on a new mystery pattern that is super duper easy, but ought to be pretty awesome once it’s done too. It’s almost like an introduction to strip-piecing.

I’m still in the planning stages, but ought to be ready to start cutting within a week or so (depending on how often my video games distract me).

In the meantime, I’ll keep moving the patterns from the old site over here. Keep watching this space 🙂

Twisted Table Runner

This is a quick project that can be finished in a weekend with no trouble. It’s slightly more difficult than the Valentines Day Mystery, but is still very much a ‘beginner’ pattern. Even if you’re just starting out in quilting you can jump into this project and create a lovely table runner to grace your home — or give away as a gift.

This tablerunner will take one fat quarter each of three different colors, and about a half meter of your background color to complete. The finished size is approx. 44″ x 14″

Remember, don’t click on the ‘Finished Projects’ link until you want to know what the quilt looks like when it’s done.

Valentine’s Day Mystery

This is my first mystery and was created for the Mailblocks quilting group. I wanted it to be something even the most inexpirienced quilter could do with confidence — as such, it’s extremely simple but really quite charming just the same.

It could be done over a weekend, but I’d suggest giving it a week — so that you don’t go mad from making HSTs. The end result is approx. 40″ x 40″ without any borders.

Let’s try this again, shall we?

So I’m back.

Sort of.

I’m going to skip the big, long explanations. The fact is this blog got accidentally deleted. By me. I was so pissed off at myself that I put up the old HTML version again and walked away.

It’s been a couple years now, I’m willing to forgive myself and I’ve come back to put this back up. At least one mystery project has been lost forever, but I guess that just means I ought to get my butt in gear and make more.

Right after I get this website back up and running. It’s going to take some time. I’d say bear with me but no one can see this yet. By the time you can, the site will be up. Heh.

So. Yeah. I’m on it.
