Blue, black-white and geometrical

I found on the Internet a photo of a modern quilt bed cover made of blue and black & white squares. But the project required 10 blue and 10 black & white fabrics. I manage to gather them all only using a wide definition of blues and black & whites. And the final effect is even more interested.

Tartan sheep

This small wall hanging was made using a Rachel Pellman quilt pattern published in Quilt Country.  Very good for practicing hand applique. The fabrics used in the original pattern were too "cute" so I decided to use cotton tartan fabrics.

Vintage fabrics

This  table runner  was made from a  kit. When I saw the fabrics, I couldn't resist buying it. The pattern: circles and squares was compelling as well.

Bed cover from the background

This project has the largest numbers of parts from all the projects made so far. And the most ambitoius as well. But I liked it so much that started to made the other bed cover using the same patterns but different fabrics.  The pattern is from Windham Fabrics free patterns and is called "19th Century Reds".

Fun with charm pack

Compared with the laborious calculations on the previously posted jelly roll bed cover , making  this  wall hanging from just one charm pack was a real fun. No counting, just simple sewing pre-cut squares.

Patchwork for patients

This time work in progress. And probably will stay in progress for a long time.  Thiese are hexagons or English paper piecing or Jardin de Grand Mere (I like that name).

Jelly roll mathematics

I bought once a Jelly roll with old prints and dust colours. It used to be part of historical collection Civil War Reunion by Moda Fabrics. I spent a lot of time thinking hard how to use it entirely and the result of it was something similar to log cabin. I arranged all the strips in five colour groups in order  to leave no scraps. And no scraps left. You really have to be good in math to create patchwork patterns...

After beginning

And this is my first wall hanging. This time, parts of background were machine pieced. But the applique and quilting were hand made. It was a quilt kit, a perfect solution for beginners - all the fabrics and step by step instruction were included.

Beginnings...


Hello to everybody, 
My original blog is in Polish but I decided to create an English copy of it. I hope you will enjoy it . So, here is my first post:

My first post and my first work – a bed cover. A single bed cover but still a huge project for a beginner.  And entirely hand made, as both top piecing and quilting were made by hand. It took me a lot of time…
