Pam Moore wanted to join in with our amazingly popular Garden Flowers Blog Hop, but as happens from time to time, life got in the way.   Not wanting to disappoint we asked Lyn Butler to help out and this is what Pam told her. In Pam Moores words: I normally spend more time at our…

Charm Spaces 4 This video treatment is more complex. I have used a second stencil which I have placed in the centre, then from another stencil I have just taken part of it and in the 4 corners another section. This shows that you need not stick to one design but intermix them. The area…

Charm Spaces 2 We are again filing in the negative spaces on our quilt. In this second video we will be using a stencil showing you that by doing so you can expand your design to make a different pattern. We will be doing the Figure Eight pattern, Circles, and in the four corners Feathers.…

Many of us start a quilt having no idea who the quilt is for. But I have discovered that when you know who you are quilting for, each stitch takes on new meaning. As soon as I saw WIL, released as the 2019 free BOM by Esther Aliu, I knew I would be making it.…
