February 23, 2015I love the various range of colours and the crispy feel of these fabrics.Another fantastic tutorial on piecing to produce this kaleidoscopic pattern (based on a sock knitting book!). Read all about it on Amira's Little Mushroom Cap blog.Fascinating stuff from Australia, our little 10 inch squares are getting themselves about a bit.Read more
August 28, 2014Helen from Archie the Wonderdog blogspot used the Metro bundle:
"I was left with the 'mystery' bundle which ... was revealed to be a 'neutrals' bundle. Not my usual stomping ground but I decided to decline the kind offers to swap (we hadn't yet seen a photo of this bundle so I had no idea what I was going to get!) and accept the challenge ... I'm glad I did"and so are we. Helen designed a small quilt cum block roll ...
"used to keep pieces in the right place while you're sewing and which rolls up to keep your pieces safe when you're not using it) as I use them a lot when I'm hand piecing, as well as when I'm machine piecing. They're very handy when you've got a block with lots of pieces which are the same shape but different colours, as you can carry it to the ironing board, press the seams you've just sewn and put the pieces back in the right place. It helps eliminate that moment when, after piecing the final seam, you hold up your block and realise that you've got the star points on backwards or two red pieces next to each other."See the full and fascinating tutorial (and photos of Archie!) on http://archiethewonderdog.blogspot.co.uk/2014/07/city-walk-oakshott-metro-project.html Read more
