The Walrus quilt block

If you read my last week's post, you will know that April is Autism Awareness month so I am turning my son's drawings into quilt blocks. I have to say, they make really cute blocks and fun to make too. I'm making one each week for this month of April, but I may go on to make more as I am thinking these blocks will turn into a great baby quilt and four just won't be enough.

April Stitch Along week 1

Did you miss my stitch along challenge rules this week? This month we are going to be doing something very different. You see, it is Autism Awareness month and I thought of a wonderful way to spread the word by showing just how creative autistic people can be. My son is autistic and he has been doing some drawings so I thought I would turn those drawings into quilt blocks and present one each week for the month of April.

Wild Flowers quilt made by Ruth BlanchetHave you ever laid in a grass field and looked through the weeds and wild flowers? This was what I was doing when I created my quilt "Wild Flowers". Well not technically, but I was reminiscing about doing just that as I created this quilt.

Coloring Pages and Quilt Patterns

Posted by on 2 March 2016 | 0 Comments

Over the last few months, I've been creating coloring pages. It seems like adult coloring is the rage lately and I hear it is great therapy. As we all know, quilting is great therapy too so I wondered what would happen if I combined both - a super charge? Yes, I have to believe so! Thus, I began creating coloring pages that can be used for quilting as well as coloring.

Anita has always enjoyed making Christmas blocks. Some were practice blocks for patterns, others were just for fun. As she gathered more and more, she decided that all these wonderful blocks needed to be included in a bed quilt and thus her beautiful Christmas quilt was born.design your own Christmas quilt with feathered star center and Christmas blocks

Changing Colors for Changing Seasons

Posted by Ruth on 16 September 2015 | 0 Comments

So by now I'm sure my readers know that I love to quilt. Not only is it relaxing, but also rewarding when the quilt is finished and I can start gathering fabrics for the next. Often I have two or three going at the same time, usually at different stages. Another fun thing I like to do is get one of my existing quilts and see how it looks in different colors. I did this recently for my quilt Purple Dawn.

Bargello Patterns - 2 seasons

Posted by Ruth on 30 July 2015 | 0 Comments

As I've been designing a brand new bargello, I've also been refreshing my Bargello Seasons patterns and transferring them to downloadable patterns. The two I have done most recently is Bargello in Summer and Bargello in Winter - opposite seasons for opposite sides of the equator. I didn't do that on purpose, it was just the way it happened.
