Book review of Quilt Modern Curves & Bold Stripes by Daisy Aschenhoug and Heather Black.

February 16, 2020

I’ve been eagerly anticipating this book by Daisy Aschenhoug and Heather Black. Both Daisy and Heather have been on my radar for years as I share their love of curves and the Drunkard’s Path block in particular. They are modern, innovative and creative quilters both with their own unique style and I always look out for any new and exciting quilt designs from either of them. So when…

Choosing colour with help from the #rubyruler

February 10, 2020

This piece is long overdue, so I’d like to start with an apology to Blair Stoker of Wise Craft.

Faced and Mitred binding

March 29, 2019

Sometimes finished is better than perfect. Apart from the first picture, that was taken by Lee Thompson,they were all taken one winter evening in deepest darkest Sheffield. I have been planning on sharing this tutorial for a long time but as I wanted pretty pictures, and life got in the way of taking said pictures, the tutorial got postponed month after month. I’ve still shared it with my…
