My place to be creative

Creative Week 1


I promised myself that I would try to blog something every week, that  is if I made anything!  This last week I have finished hand piecing the Dutch Rose block,

made the twist using 1/4 square triangles for a quick to machine piece block (something I will be trying with a number of other quilt blocks to make them easier and much quicker to put together),

  1. Gosh, that Dutch Rose block is pretty. Well done!

    • Thank you. I am working on a few more blocks that can be made more simply from triangles rather than awkward (in some cases) ‘Y’ seams.

  2. Love the scrappy blocks, they are so happy. What is coming next?
