A very hot Kaffe – vibrant and bright!
Using domestic machine quilting rulers are fun and fast. This small 9 block quilt has been waiting for inspiration to strike – that’s okay, there’s a few of them quietly laying around, but this one called out to be done.
So UFO #2 for 2019 is finished!
Using Isacord thread in a matching colour lets the fabric do all the talking. After all, trying to compete with Kaffe is a tall ask!

Oops! a tangled thread right in the middle of the back of the quilt – oh well, better finished than perfect!
This small offering is off to a new home, gladly waving goodbye after being so patient to be finished!
Which one will be next I wonder?
UFO #1 for 2019 Finished!
This one was four large blocks left over from a quilt, just laying around waiting patiently for being put together and quilted.
Joining up the blocks was the easy bit.
What quilting to put on it was the hard bit. A dark thread wouldn’t show up on the black and a light thread wouldn’t show up on the red, and ditch quilting would make it very bland.
Which thread – a variegated grey on top and in the bobbin.
What to quilt became easy using the Westalee Ruler Foot ‘Spin-e-fex Snowflake Templates 1 and 2, and the straight edge of the 12″ arc ruler, to make the patterns.
So the block centres became the framed snowflake…
The centre of the quilt became a smaller version, which also sat on the centre side edges …

While a simpler version sat along the block joins, and the corners …
When quilted and bound it became ‘Snowflake Fury’!
‘Snowflake Fury’ – 4 large block quilt.
