Not been up to much over the weekend apart from studying and patchwork…

Huge to do list and not much time but I’ve made progress on two of the block bee/swaps I’m in.

First up a completed 9 patch for the Quilt Together over on the Popular Patchwork forum. I hope it looks alright?! Just ignore the couple of quirky imperfections or I will have to redo…


My swap partner over in France specified soft reds and creams- hopefully delivers?!

Next up is two out of five blocks from the Hexy Hive on the 4 x 5 Modern Quilt Bee on Flickr




The idea is to make the same block but five times in each others specified colours and swap. The top one is tangerine, lemon yellow, lime with a background of medium grey or coal.

The bottom one, navy, pink, green with a background of white.

I’m hoping I’ve caught the colourways right all I need to do is sort out the background and some other hexy applique I think. I’m calling this my wonky version of the hexy logcabin.

Last but not least is an idea for my next (yes another!) project. It’s going to be a blanket for a moses basket. Just need work out sizes and whether fleece backing or thin wadding and cotton backing.Ā (Any help here will be appreciated šŸ™‚ )


Sorry for the fuzzy photo but the light was going- brief pink and cream with a vintage style feel. That’s my rough pattern sketch I think šŸ™‚

    I love the red and cream 9 patch quilt square. It looks so elegant. I have a question for you. If you were going to use it this square for a quilt what would you sash it with?
    I’m also intriqued with the hexagon square as well.

    Loving the red and cream, very different. For the baby quilt, I would use 100% cotton wadding, fairly lightweight and cotton fabric backing. Babies don’t need wrapping up quite so much as you would think, and for inside you especially don’t want it too warm. Hope that helps x
