Spoonflower Sampler Quilt Update

I have finally got back to my Spoonflower Sampler quilt, which has been lying around since last August.

Spoonflower Sampler Quilt Top

I worked on the quilting last night at Spoonflower’s Pins & Needles. I am doing various straight line quilting designs, using the bottom middle block as a focal point.

And you can see the quilting a little better on the back and I am loving the texture. The lines are my usual 1/2″ apart.

Last year, I also promised to provide the instructions for each block, finally I have managed to get around to that and plan on releasing at least two blocks each week.

Linking up with Lee over @ Freshly Pieced for WiP Wednesday (see button on the right).

Moorish Pyramids Pattern Release + Giveaway

I am so excited to announce that I have a new pattern – Moorish Pyramids available via my Craftsy store. It will be free for a limited time during the month of July.

Castle of the Moors in Sintra, Lisbon, is one of the most inspiring architectural buildings, I have ever seen. This quilt was inspired by the pyramid shapes and how the shadows are cast on the entrance way.

Originally, this is one of my quilt design a day designs. Art Gallery Fabrics provided me the opportunity to make this using the new line Imprint by Katarina Roccella. Moorish_Pyramids

The quilt measures 60 x 60″ finished. There are a lot of options to make this quilt your own by using different color palettes, color placement and your own quilt design. This finished quilt used straight line quilting with some angled lines, highlighting the pyramid shapes using Aurifil 50wt.

The quilt pattern can easily be modified to make a smaller or larger quilt by reducing the overall block size.

You can see other projects using Imprint, including this one, in the Look book that came out today.

Quilting Triangles II

I have managed to get back to my “It takes a Village” quilt. It has in total Forty-four (44) 4″ triangles. I had previously posted two of the quilting designs I was using for my triangles. Again, using my walking foot, here is the third…

Diamonds within:
I love the simplicity of this design, where you can see the equilateral triangles and then the intersecting lines to form a diamond. I did do some initial marking for this block. I marked the 2” center line, and on the two sides I marked the 2″ height mark for the intersecting lines. These marks are used as rough guides to evenly separate the sections.

Here are the quilted lines for this block; their directions, start and end points:
