It seems ridiculously early to be posting our September Doodles especially as summer has been rather limited this year. However, September it is and doodles there are, so do click over and take a look. The colouring page is ready to download here as well.
Chris is gearing up for a new term of classes at The Corner Patch and has also been very busy creating a stunning new quilt (not sure if this is top secret or not but maybe she’ll release a sneak peek…. Barbara).
Oh ok – Here’s a quick snapshot of it laid out ready to pin the layers together (as its already appeared on Instagram . . . .! Chris). It may also appear at some point as a pattern in our Minton Floor Tile series . . .
Of course what Chris should have been doing is making this coming term’s workshop samples and next year’s Block of the Month etc but somehow the summer has vanished, classes start again at the weekend (Sept 2nd) and very little of what really needed to be done has been achieved.
Barbara has been heroically (!) staffing our Overseas Office in temperatures of 30degrees plus and stitching samples for her upcoming classes. We have a number of Important Plans on the agenda for discussion at our next meeting at Headquarters so it’s a very exciting time all round. Happy stitching!
Click on this link to download a colouring sheet of one of this month’s Doodles –
Sept EQ Doodle
Another two blocks for you this month – All Kinds and Paducah Peony.
We also have a Summer Special to help you while away that time lazing on a sunny beach (we can but dream) – not one, not two but three colouring sheets to download. Sheet One is a combination of the two blocks and the others are the blocks straight set on their own. Don’t forget that you can have a lot of extra fun by cutting up the sheets and rearranging the blocks. Try putting them on point, or overlapping them perhaps? Download All Kinds here and Paducah Peony here.

Flashback to 2013 – stitch fabric together, slice it and stitch it again. We love this sort of piecing!
Notice how important it is to have a supply of tea and coffee during class!
This month’s doodles feature those two favourites – Log Cabin and Courthouse Steps, together with Southern Star.
The colouring page is a simple 9-block set with the Southern Star block in the middle. You can download it here. Remember that you can print out the colouring page multiple times and then cut it up, rearrange the blocks, design your own layout to colour, as well as colouring in the layout we’ve given you. We reckon that more than half the fun of patchwork is playing around with the design and colour part – so put your feet up, have a cuppa and get colouring.
Scrolling back seven years for this week’s flashbacks –
With apologies for the unexpected interruption last week of our Flashback series we’re flashing back several years with a perfectly random selection of pictures – gardens, colour and all those good things.
The EQ Doodles have been posted from the Overseas Office and Chris has been coaxed in from the garden at C&B Towers to make a colouring page for you. (it helps that it is raining this morning – Chris) The Summer Winds block seemed very appropriate for this time of year and it has been paired with the simple nine-patch Hour Glass block.
Download your colouring sheet here. Remember you can print it out as often as you like, cut it up, play around with it . . .
Have a look at the Doodles page to see what we came up with.
