Obviously the patterns are also for those more experienced quilters who love a new project to get stuck in to... my first pattern is All Squared Up.
This quilt involves simple cutting to create a 'square in a square' block, which you then sew into rows, then together into one unit, add a border, then quilt as you wish. As with all my patterns, there are clear, comprehensive instructions with great pictures to help you at every stage - even the quilting!
My second pattern, Fox in the Nine Patch, is based on one of the oldest blocks in quilting, the nine patch. When designing this quilt, I started with six quarters I had recently bought from Lewis and Irene's Fox and Friends range, I then approached by stash in the hope of finding the 14 more fabrics I needed, I can't tell you how happy and slightly overwhelmed I was by the wonders I found in my stash, I really can't remember buying half of it! I do think this has been the first quilt I have made from my actual stash, rather than going out and buying the whole lot new. This will be the first of many, I assure you!
My third pattern, Novelty Nine Patch, is actually one I designed when working at Doughty's, but I thought it would be an easy follow on from the Fox pattern. This one is based on a charm pack and really shows off the versatility of these pre-cuts.
There will be many more patterns to follow, and hopefully some kits in the New Year.
When not designing quilts, I am also creating items for sale on Folksy - purses, pencils cases, make-up bags... if you're looking for a special little pressie, or a stocking filler for a lovely little girl, why not have a browse :)
