And it did take three tries before it worked the way I envisioned. It's an idea that's been floating around in my head for a very long […]

Spools & Kites Quilt


Use the GO Qube Mix & Match 8” Block along with the GO Kite-4”Finished die to create a wonderful display of big bold kites and spools on this scrappy quilt.  You can play with the layout and alternate the rows horizontally, vertically or create your own preferred layour for this beauty.  Completed quilt measures 44 ½”x 44 ½”

Zen Doodles Pattern


Have a little fun using an array of classic shapes from the GO Qube Mix & Match 6”Block Set to create this beauty.  Let your imagination run wild and come up with an alternative color combination if you like.  Get into a nice rhythm and assembly line sew these 6”blocks and the end result is Zen.

June Project

June’s Project is a zippered project bag – we will be making the front of the project bag during the meeting.  If you make your back before the meeting, you should be able to finish or almost finish the project during the meeting.

             

You can use any block you like, add borders if needed to make it a 16 ½” square.  For the sample I started with 4 fat quarters (3 different fabrics).  The back was made using our 12” Qube and the Blockade Block from the Accuquilt 72 Blocks Pattern.
