Sew Happy QAL February 2015


Quilting along with the Sew Happy QuiltALong in Popular Patchwork magazine 🙂

(second installment, February issue). This is my original quilt, now we’re sharing the fun in a group version.


– have you met the Jo Blox girls? – we’re a happy bunch – especially when quilting 🙂

I’m trying an alternative layout for my centre square, I never would follow instructions, even when they’re my own!


Fussy cut, show off corner squares from the lovely bold flower print provided by Nicky. Another mid tone, when it should have been light – ooops! I will bring some light in soon.

If you are quilting along with us, I hope you’re feeling confident to bend the rules a little too. There are a few ideas for different layouts in this issue.

Welcome to Pogles Wood quilters from Canterbury! A little bird told me you’re exchanging fabrics this week for your group QAL. Can’t wait to see what you get up to!

    Pogles Wood have swapped their fabrics (over a nice glass of wine and several bits of cake!!) and the first couple of blocks are under way. Will e-mail pictures. Great fun as a group project.
