Quick free pattern finds.
Who else has got to February and not thought about Valentine’s Day? We’re approaching our 25th wedding anniversary (think it’s next year?!) but we do still try and do something aroun…
How do I explain? Christmas is coming and I have blown up my cooker! All because of my quilting addiction. I’ll start at the beginning.

It was my birthday recently and I’ve been aft…
Oops, it’s hard not to get totally engrossed in quilting when you’re meant to be doing something else!
I totally agree,you need to clear everything else from your day when you play with EQ! If you need extra help/inspiration I can highly reccommend the on-line classes run by Kari Schell/onpoint quilter. There are free starter classes or paid-for longer courses. I’m never going to make all the quilts I have designed but love keeping the brain cells working. Hope the cooker is fixed now! LOL
Thanks, ladies. Yes, cooker dried out and was fine. Great tip Karin. I am loosing hours planning quilts too…
So, you are starting out on your patchwork and quilting journey with a class or two, maybe a good instruction book or even YouTube and have heard about quilt shows but are a little too scared to go? What are they all…
Absolutely delighted to see Amsterdam Memories featured in your post! I bought the pattern and fabric in Amsterdam some years ago, pieced the top, and then, my extremely talented friend begged to quilt it! We loved seeing it hang in the two person category, and heard some very positive feedback from visitors.
Isobel, thanks for letting us know the name of that specific quilt. I loved it at the show, it was truly stunning!
Thank you! We love it too.
Just a quick and easy pattern for you today, brilliant for appliqué and hand sewing. My friend, Veronica, showed me one she had made and said how fantastic it was. It really is, such a simple idea but you’ll find it…
Busman’s Holiday, that’s the term, isn’t it? This July I had a week off, relaxing in the sun, a little vino and time with the family. Then I realised that Jen Jones has announced that she is retiring and is holding…

Festival of Quilts is the biggest quilt shows in Europe, as I’m sure you know. For those of you who have never been, or just couldn’t make it, I thought I’d show you…
So nice to see young people entering the craft as well as the FOQ. Quite inspirational and unique work. Thanks Helen.
We do need to keep encouraging the next generation of quilt artists. They were so good.
It would be great if parents, aunts, uncles, or grandparents would give a gift of Young Quilter Membership to their children, relations or grandchildren. The cost is £5.00 for a year’s membership – they receive a goodie bag on joining together with regular newsletters and updates on regional activities as well as participation at regional YQ events.
This is a great deal and never realised that the Guild did this. Unfortunately I don’t have grandchildren yet or young relatives that I could encourage.
So much talent from the younger generation! I loved seeing all of them
Yes, so much talent.
Great to see the work of the next generation of quilters. They should be extremely proud of their work.
This was just some of them. Lots of great quilts!
Any of use ‘older quilters’ would be proud of these!
