Anxieties Block

March 01, 2010 8 Comments

Hello I can honestly say I know why this block is called Anxieties. This block has been a bit of a challenge, I am pleased to have this one finished. Foundation piecing is the only way to go with this one. Here is a picture of my Anxieties block. I have also finnished Conscript Law. This block was a little tricky also, you had to be aware of placement with all the little pieces. I found that numbering each section helps. Here is the picture of my finished block. I now have another 117 blocks to make, but whose counting. Is anyone else making this lovely quilt? , I would love to hear from you. Sharon

Hi Sharon…thats a lovely block…must have taken a while to make. I have never been too crash hot with foundation piecing, but I love to see things people make using that method.

Oh my gosh, it gives me a headache to think of making it, no wonder it’s called anxieties. I think I would have a panic attack, so no I’m not making it. I hope the next 117 blocks aren’t anxious too!!!! LOL!

Hi Lizzie
You’ll be glad to know they are not all that intense. I think I am getting hooked on tiny pieces. LOL

Reflections on 2018 and the Winterwood Quilt

December 29, 2018

 These are just a few of the things that I got up to in 2018. There is more to come but I am not able to tell you just yet. I will keep you all posted when I am able to spill the beans. Lot's of secret sewing has been going on.

New patterns are coming along, so in the New Year there will be some surprises.

    The Full version of the Winterwood Pattern is now available as a full pattern containing everything you need to complete the whole quilt. The Winterwood quilt pattern can be found here containing 71 pages. This is one of my favorite quilts, I loved every minute of making this beautiful quilt. Sometimes everything seems to go along so smoothly when designing and making a quilt, this quilt was one of those times.

It's been such a long time since I posted, I am going to start today off with a post about the Zig-Zag border I am making for my Roses quilt.

There are many ways to make a Zig-Zag border, I have chosen to use half square triangles. 

Here's how it works.

I cut 2 1/2 inch strips from a dark print and a light print then matched the light and dark print fabrics with right sides facing. I used a half square triangle ruler to cut out the pieces. Taking them to the sewing machine and sewing them together with a 1/4 inch seam. I like this method, it's fast and requires very little trimming.
