March came in like a lion ...

I'm a little behind in my upkeep of this blog, but I have a good reason. Since March came along and was/is so blustery and cold where I live, I decided to take off for warmer climates for a brief respite. Now, I am back and hoping that March leaves like a lamb, (or so the saying goes).

This past month I have created 5 more new quilt block patterns for you to download.These quilt blocks range from easy to more challenging, and feature half square triangles, rectangles and one of my favourite patches ... the flying geese units.

  • Sparkle Star is for those quilters who are comfortable with their piecing skills, as it is a little more challenging than many blocks

  • Arkansas Traveller is an easy block and a good choice for beginners

  • Starlight Geese features the flying geese units

  • Log Cabin is probably one of the most well known quilt blocks and was very popular around the time of the Civil War in the United States

  • Road to California was fun to play around with as an exercise in colour (for me)

And speaking of lions ...
