Belle Isle

 I know... I know........  Roselyn JUST got here, but I'd like to give you a peak of the next collection - which the sales team has been showing to shop owners for a couple of weeks now.   It is Belle Isle!

Belle Isle is Red, White and Blue, Summer, Americana, all things Minick and Simpson! It's been great fun making things with it. 

This is Regent Street! I used Diary Of A Quilter's pattern and made mine bigger. Guess what? Amy Smart (Diary of A Quilter) re-wrote the pattern to accomodate my LARGE Union Jack blocks. This pattern will be in the Etsy shop next week.  I loved making this so much - I made 2 of them. This one using Belle Isle and another using red, white and blue scraps.  It goes together so easy thanks to Amy's pattern and you will have a king size quilt after making 12 blocks.  

This is Galway - an Ohio Star quilt that is a reproduction of an antique quilt I saw and it used big, outrageous prints in the alternate blocks.

Donwell Abbey is a 4-patch/9-patch variation and has measurements for 3 sizes.  This is the twin size. It is Honeybun™friendly.

This is Grand Union. Grand Union. It is a fast, easy quilt and has the size requirements for a Quilt of Valor quilt if you choose to make one.

 Last, but not least is Cherry Wreath.  Cherry Wreath is a new fave! It presses all my Minick and Simpson buttons - Red, white and blue; applique and piecing, and cherries!! I took this picture this morning and it will get basted shortly. I will be hand quilting Cherry Wreath. It is a very doable - 52" x 52". 

Cherry Wreath, Regent Street, and Grand Union will be kits in the Etsy shop. I will be putting them up asap and I'm taking pre-orders on them so I can be sure to order enough fabric.  Belle Isle fabric ships to quilt shops in August 2021. Thank you for looking!

Blockheads 3 - Week 53


This charming block is courtesy of Robin Pickens. You can find the directions HERE.

Are you thinking about how you will put all these Blockhead 3 blocks together?  I can't wait to see how everyone puts their quilt together.  I hope you all have hand work for these cold dark months (also for those warm, sunny months if you live in the lower hemisphere).  There will be some applique in my future, along with some hand quilting. If you love applique...... these kits were added to the etsy shop yesterday...

You can find the kits HERE.

Moda Blockheads3 - Week 50


Here we are..... a few more weeks to go, but this is MY LAST BLOCK for Moda Blockheads 3.  You can find the instructions HERE.

Because it's my last week there will be a giveaway over on Instagram for a Roselyn Layer Cake™.  

Happy Holidays to all of you here.  If you want to get yourself a little Holiday cheer, remember everything is on sale in the Etsy shop until the end of the year. Yes, it's my annual Inventory sale where I would rather send it to you than count it. 

There are still LOTS of patterns and books but fabric and kits are getting very scarce.  There might be still one of these......
and one of these....

and a few of these....

Blockheads 2 - Week 42


This week's block is courtesy of Joanna from Fig Tree Quilts.  You can find the pattern HERE.

It's a sweet little variation on a bear's paw block.

What else is going on here?  I have a new quilt pattern.......

The new pattern is called STITCHED! and it is available as a download pattern right now.  I'll have the paper patterns in the shop next week when they arrive from the printer.

I am also taking pre-orders on kits which will be available in February when the Roselyn fabric ships.

Moda Blockheads3 - Week 40

This week's block is courtesy of Janet Clare and you can find the directions HERE.

I have to confess that I'm working a bit ahead..... my Moda Blockhead 3 top is already done and is being quilted right now. I can't wait to show it to you.  This is a hint as to what my background is - the black Moda crossweave. 

 I'm also making progress on A Is For Apple. I'll have the center motifs all quilted tonight and tomorrow I'll be starting on quilting the alphabet border. Not sure exactly how, but you'll see soon
