Pattern – #amonthof creative moments

To date I have made three patch work quilts, my biggest and the first that I started was made of entirely new fabric, the first I actually finished I used a few scraps of old fabric and the third I made was half made of old fabrics.

I have one more quilt planned and I plan for it to be made entirely of fabric scraps, I have off cuts from friends and have raided mum and grannys fabric stashes.

I am really excited about this one as I am desiging my own pattern!

I am also terrified as I have no idea how to and if there is anyone out there who can help or point me in the right direction of how to design and draw up a pattern for a patchwork quilt please, please, please point me in the right direction.

These are a lot of the fabric scraps that I will be working with for the quilt - I have a vague idea for the pattern but can't say as the quilt will be a present for someone!

  1. Brill Catherine! Making a quilt is on my list too. Am sure Ginny can help? she was making some as Christmas presents for her girls. ;-)

  2. I wanted to try quilting, and was given a book about it. Unfortunately I just didn’t get on with it, since I don’t have a sewing machine and don’t have the patience to hand sew everything! If it can be of any use to you, I’d be happy to pass it on!
