The first day back of the New Year at the quilt group I’m a member of is an exciting time! The Christmas Challenge reveal has become a definite date on the calendar. The previous year’s winner sets the challenge which has been in many different formats from a ‘star’ block including a particular fabric, a…

When I agreed to take part in this project I was chosen to complete the FIRE quilt. A daunting task without a doubt, but I decided to wait and see what everyone else created before I made my plans. The rows arrived a few weeks before I started work on them, I wanted to do…

Well, as most of my informative years were in the 80s I couldn’t help but think of this when hearing about the challenge for the Ice Quilt Sew-a-Row, designing a quilt for the UKQU website. You can read the full story of the Ice and Fire quilts in October’s issue of British Patchwork and Quilting…

The bloggers were asked who would like to partake in a Sew-A-Row quilt, and I decided to go for it. I haven’t been part of such a group before, and the only Sew-A-Row I’ve done before was one from Popular Patchwork magazine, using scraps. I wasn’t sure what would be required of me in this,…

‘Love is a burning thing, and it makes a fiery ring.  Bound by wild desire, I fell into a ring of fire.’ (Johnny Cash) I love this song and we regularly blast it out in our Ukulele Group.  Great piece of music and please feel free to play and sing along as you make this row!  (Find chords…

Sew-a-Row

Well, the shout went out for anyone interested in taking part in a sew-a-row where you had to design the row, sew the row and write up the pattern for it. After taking part in a sew-a-row a few years ago and enjoying every minute of it I just knew that this was for me.…

In complete contrast to our first Sew a Row, FIRE will appear in hot pursuit. We asked a new group from the Bloggerati to work on this idea.   Ruth Garner, Sue Burford, Jane Galley, Chris Hutchins and Carol Munroe created this hot little number. Both ICE and FIRE will be displayed at the 2018 Festival…

Well, following a suggestion from Sue Griffiths, from Australia, the call went out for volunteers from the Bloggerati who would be interested in taking part in a Sew-a-Row Quilt. I have never done this sort of thing before and thought it would be fun to take part, so up went my hand!!!! Due to the…
