This Holiday Season I’m doing a complete quilt pattern for you here on this site, every few days I will post a new part of the pattern. The finished quilt is fifty inches by fifty inches and can be made smaller or larger just by adding or reducing the borders sizes.
This is a four inch by four inch quilt block and is from my book, Make it Special, it’s here for you. All cutting and complete how I put the quilt together included in the pattern book.
This is Yankee Puzzle and a GREAT quilt block. When making small/little quilt blocks I make my triangles or squares just as I would with larger quilt blocks. I over THINK NOTHING! it’s fabric, cut it over, throw it away and do it again.
This is my finished quilt, a great lap or baby size quilt, finished size is thirty inches by thirty inches. My Make it Special quilt book has all the quilt blocks and how I put my quilt together instructions. When you go to my Etsy shop, please take a few moments and look around at all my quilt patterns.
It’s been a LONG haul to get these quilt patterns out this year and I will not be doing a quilt block of the month in 2018.
I have not mentioned The Quilt Ladies in a bit, it’s still up and going, thank you all for using it and linking to everything ! ! I just can’t do this without all of you. My Triangle how to is HERE for you.
Today is quilt pattern block is “Triangle Combination” as you see I, my blocks are very simple in the fabric combinations, because the the crazy print I used with them in the quilt. The finished size of today quilt block is four inches by four inches. If you would like all quilt patterns and how I put the quilt together, it’s here in “Make it Special” on my Etsy site.
After the questions about The Quilt Ladies I am ALWAYS asked about my camera, it’s a very simple Point and Shot and it’s pretty much always in my right hand, I have linked here, I get a few cents per click from amazon.
Again, another quilt block with a GREAT name, Old Maids Puzzle. This quilt block has a finished size of four inches by four inches. Making the quilt as shown in the book you will have a finished quilt thirty inches by thirty inches, perfect as a lap quilt or a baby quilt.
I make this quilt block with very simple colors and background, but you can have lots of fun with it. Remember to press NOT IRON a quilt block and I always press as I go each seam. I have a small ironing board right by my sewing machine. I posted how I do quilt triangles for you at my other site, TheQuiltLadies.com
Sometimes you make a quilt block because of it’s name and this is one of them for me. “Bonnie Scotsman” how GREAT !
This quilt block has a finished size of four inches by four inches and is a quilt classic. IF you would like all the series quilt patterns and how to I put the quilt together, it’s here for you “Make a Special Quilt”
It’s been a process getting things back to a normal and I really don’t think it will be normal or the same again. AND I have to be OK with that and I am trying. At this moment our tile floors are going re-grouted and sealed. One of the things that was put on the back burner and it’s now getting done. I love clean (and I’ve tried and can NOT get them clean) and if you’ve seen on facebook, I’m getting a plan together to paint our kitchen cabinets after the holiday…..Yes, I’m doing it. Husband just shakes his head and walks away, I love that too. No need to fight it…HA !
This quilt block has a FINISHED size of four inches by four inches. Today’s quilt patterns name is “Autumn Tints”
I use a 1/4″ seam allowance with small quilt blocks just as I would with a larger size quilt block, remember to ALWAYS press to the dark fabric. And I press as I go. AND remember with quilting, press is an UP and DOWN motion!
With everything being so crazy here for months….I am just getting myself back. My Mom is in a very good living place and we are getting a new normal worked out.
I haven’t done anything I have wanted to do for months, tonight I did, pulled out my photo’s and just played on Photoshop. I have always had anxiety and it has been on over drive. So, it’s huge for me to just be and be happy doing what “I” like.
Nice to see you, is from a boat ride and we walked the beach in Sarasota Bay.
Scary Beauty The Jelly fish is from Mote Marine, and of course my flowers, from ??? I even took a bit of time and entered a digital photo contest, I didn’t include them here but will after judging.
Wishing you a Wonderful Thanksgiving and may joy be with you
