Meta Project


I’ve decided that my next project isn’t going to be mysterious at all. In fact, it’s going to be more like a tutorial.

I mentioned that one of my friends is very new to quilting and was looking for a good way to ease in, well this is going to be that. I’m going to do step by step directions (with pictures) of everything from how to use a rotary cutter to how to strip piece. The end result ought to be a lovely but very, very, very simple quilt or throw with a Nine Block at its heart.

I’ve picked out the fabric I’m going to use and tonight I’ll start taking pictures and playing around with it.

I’m also in the middle of ripping an old quilt apart to see how much of it I can save though, which is taking up a fair amount of my time, so my progress on the Meta Project may be a little slow.  Slow progress is better than no progress though, right?


Canada Day Tablerunner

This tablerunner has two different versions — a three color version and a two color version. I will be releasing it on July 1st, just in time for Canada Day but since July 4th is so close I thought two versions would be a good idea. If you’re going with a Canadian theme you may want to do the two color version in red and white, but if you want more colors or happen to be an American looking for a red, white and blue theme — you can do that with the three color version 🙂

Two Color Version:
~ Step One ~ Step Two ~ Step Three ~ Step Four ~ Step Five ~

Three Color Version:
~ Step One ~ Step Two ~ Step Three ~ Step Four ~ Step Five ~ Step Six ~

A note on difficulty. I listed this as both ‘easy’ and ‘medium’ difficulty. The two color version is easy, and the three color one is of medium difficulty, not because of any trickiness in cutting or sewing, but because you need to be paying attention when you put the units together.

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.

Valentine’s Day Mystery


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.
