Definitely a purple streak for our Flashback today – surprising how often this colour appears.
Flashback to July 2015 (seems only moments ago!) – and our EQ Doodles. There are rumours that the first “quilt” below might be featured in a class at The Corner Patch in 2018… fabric has been seen collecting itself into small heaps. And possibly the third “quilt” down too – it could fit the request for a class project that includes applique. It might be time for a little caffeine first!
We both have a fondness for a good tiled floor – and being based in Staffordshire, home of Minton tiles, we get to see plenty of examples. Sometimes our EQ Doodles reflect this as you can see above. Here’s a floor we both pass on our way to high level meetings at HQ –
March already – Spring is on the way and so are new Doodles. Have a look at the Doodles page to see what we have come up with this month and download your own version to colour here.
Somehow, although the February Doodles Quilt to Colour page was done and ready, we managed not to put it in a blog post all month. (Our Doodle Director has been taken to task!) So, with many apologies, you can download the February Doodle here.
The joy of these colouring pages is that not only can you print out as many as you want to colour but you can also cut them up and re-arrange the blocks to see what new patterns you can come up with. Perhaps you could try combining blocks from February with the March block? Here’s just one suggestion –
If you are need of a project or some more ideas why not hop over to the Meadowside Designs blog and download some of the free block patterns from there. You will find links to all the blocks on the Tutorials page; and a Block of the Month is also running.
Here’s a Flashback to one of Chris’s visits to the Land of Her Fathers – while in Wales last year she had the opportunity to visit the Jen Jones Museum in Lampeter. We’ve been lucky enough to have had a number of joint expeditions/quilt missions to Jen’s home over the years and indulge our mutual love of the Welsh quilting tradition in all it’s glory.
