Blueberry Buckle

This summer I found a line of fabric I just love.  The designer of the fabric and the pattern is Marsha McCloskey, who has been in the business of comforting people for decades.  This fabric didn't pop out and catch my eye, it slipped subtly into my subconscious and triggered warm feelings.  I think the colors and pattern must have triggered a happy memory from days gone by.  I ordered the entire line and layer cakes for my quilting pleasure and to share with you.    You can find every fabric from this collection in my shop HERE.

OMG December

This is actually my November OMG finish but I finished it too late.  I actually finished the quilting on the night of November 30 but didn't have enough light to take a photo.  So, here it is as my December OMG.  My goal for this busy month is to bind the quilt and put it in the finished pile.  Happy December!

Plus Quilt With Sashing

This plus quilt has sashing with corner stones.  In my last post, I shared a tutorial for a plus quilt.  You can find it HERE

This quilt was made from the same fabrics but for this quilt, rather than sash with white strips, I added a cornerstone to the sashing.   


For this version, cut all of the strips that were set aside from the patterned fabric into 2.5" squares.  Cut the 2.5" white strips into (71) 6.5" rectangles.  

Sew a white 2.5" X 6.5" rectangle the right side of each block.
Sew a 2.5" fabric square to 30 of the white rectangles.

Sew the rectangle with the corner stone to the top of each block. Sew the blocks together in 6 rows of 5 blocks.  Sew the rows together.

Sew a strip with 5 white 2.5 X 6.5" rectangles with a corner stone between and one on one end. Sew a strip with 6 white 2.5 X 6.5" rectangles, with a corner stone between each one and a cornerstone on each end. 
Sew the strip with 5 white strips to the top of the quilt and the strip with 6 white strips to the side of the quilt.  If you make one quilt using the cutting instructions, adjust your sashing strips to the larger quilt.
