I am a maker and designer of handmade quilts based in the UK, having begun my quilting journey back in the early 1990’s. I have studied on a number of courses and workshops and am now embarking on a City & Guilds course. I enjoy  making contemporary quilts inspired by traditional patterns and in particular  learning about quilting from different geographical areas. I use a variety of fabrics and especially love to incorporate Liberty cottons when I am able.



Module 3 Chapter 6

Celebratory conclusions

Task 1

For this task I needed to collect and prepare a wide range of off cuts from my personally patterned fabrics and my fabric stash.

I used a mixture of light, medium and dark colours to produce effective designs

Fabric off cuts                            Scanned fabric & paper


Task 2

I have looked back over previous modules to find ideas for cutting parallel and tapered strips

task 2print

Task 3

For this task I used scanned fabrics and paper to explore parallel designs by gluing the papers onto a back ground in a variety of sequences.

The first example is made from using same width strips and the second example uses a variety of widths.




Rail Fence Patchwork

For this example I used three strips of equal width paper to make a block, I then used my photo app to rearrange and form new blocks to create a Rail Fence patchwork


Roman Stripe is another method of using parallel strips. I cut three strips of each fabric in varying widths and stitched together horizontally, adding a vertical strip to each side.





Introducing String Patchwork

String Patchwork is a great way of using up all those strips of fabric left over from other projects.

They can be used up and sewn together even if they are tapered and/or uneven.

 Task 4

I used strips that I already had left over and also added some more strips that I cut specifically for this task. I lay the strips out on my cutting board to plan how I was going to join them together. All the fabrics that I used are 100% cotton.


Task 5

I then stitched the strips (strings) together and ironed out my ‘block’. The tapered strips needed to be ‘top & tailed’ so as to make a neat block. When I had finished stitching I used my roller cutter and ruler to neaten the edges.

I then rotated the block 90 degrees and re-cut across the seams, making further tapered and parallel strips and joined these together to make small blocks


Seminole Patchwork is an extension of strip patchwork which was developed by the Seminole Indians of Florida, they used this method to insert strips of bright colour into the plain fabric od shirts. Skirts and dresses.

I used scanned fabrics to make paper trials of Seminole Patchwork. I used varying widths and glued them horizontally in a strip onto a backing paper. I then cut them vertically and re positioned the ‘strings’, adding ‘stripshorizontally, producing TWO paper Seminole Patchwork designs for

Task 6





Task 7

For this task I was asked to produce TWO ‘lively and exciting’ Seminole samples. Using parallel, tapered and pieced strips and strings.

I found some left over pieced blocks, I cut strips of fabric, some tapered, some horizontal and joined them together to create two new blocks.




Task 8

For this task I was asked to create an innovative block using my own ideas, I decided that as I had never tried making a block with interwoven strips, I would have a go at this.

I followed the method suggested, using iron-on Vilene which I cut into a 7” square, I laid strips of fabric onto this and wove both tapered, pieced and horizonal strips through these and then ironed them onto the Vilene. I used zig zag stitch with coordinating coloured thread to stitch them in place




I enjoyed this final chapter, I am often surprised at how well a piece of work ends up after I have used a bit of a ‘mish mash’ of colours and patterns but I guess that is the beauty of patchwork. My favourite part of this module was Chapter 2, Log Cabin. I always enjoy making this block pattern but because its quite time consuming, I rarely do use it so it was nice to be able to spend a bit of time planning and designing blocks for Chapter 2.

This course had certainly moved me at times, from what I am comfortable with, which I know is a good thing. It has given me ideas of how better to plan my work and also some very helpful tips. I am so glad that I took the plunge and enrolled onto this course and know I will be using the ideas in the future. I would like to take this opportunity to thank my tutor Sylvia Grant for all her encouragement and helpful feedback along the way.

Module 3 Chapter 5

Edge ‘finishes’

In this chapter I will be looking at binding quilts, bindings are strips of fabric in different widths which frame the edges of a sample or quilt and I will be using my samples to try out different ways of doing this. The purpose of bindings is primarily a functional way of tidying up and concealing the raw edges but simultaneously a decorative or colourful edge is added to the quilt.

Task 1

For this task I chose one of my samples which is fairly bold as it stands as the first method of edging is done by folding and not actually adding binding.

I needed to trim up the sample so that the top and bottom fabrics were the same size, I used a rotary cutter and ruler to do this. The wadding was cut to at the same time. I then needed to fold and pin back the top and bottom fabrics so as to be able to trim back and extra ¼” of the wadding.


I then folded and pinned in the bottom layer of fabric and then the top layer so that they met at the edges. I then slip stitched the top and bottom layers together so that no stitching was visible.

This is a fairly neat and quick way of edging a quilt, but I think it could easily get lost of the quilt itself didn’t have a fairly bold fabric around the edge.


Task 2


For this task I took one of my nine square blocks. This process is carried out by first trimming back the top layer of fabric and the wadding and bringing the back layer of fabric up to the front to form a binding. I had used a plain light colour backing fabric that coordinated with the top fabrics, but I could have used a bolder plain or patterned fabric which would have given a very different effect.

The backing fabric is brought up first at each corner, folded and pinned in place to form a diagonal mitred corner. The edges are then folded up in the same manner all the way around. I then used a slip stitch to attach the backing to the front and finish the binding


Task 3

For this task I was asked to plan two bindings, I only read the TWO after I had planned FOUR 😊

I cut bindings from some bought ready-made binding, some handmade bindings that I had and one patterned binding that I wanted to try.


I like the plain bindings but even though I initially thought it wouldn’t work, I really like the patterned binding.


Task 4

For this task I was asked to make a traditional binding for one of my quilted samples. I used fabric that I had used in the sample and made binding from two different pieces. I used one of my binding gadgets to make the binding. As the strips of fabric that I had left over from the sample were quite narrow, I made fairly narrow binding. I do like this narrow binding as it doesn’t detract too much from the quilt itself.

I attached the blue strips to the top and bottom and then the pink strips to the sides. I hand slip stitched all of the binding to the sample. The top and bottom strips were cut to exactly the length of the sample edge and the pink strips a little longer to enable me to fold in the ends and neaten them to finish off.



Task 5

This task required another type of traditional binding made by joining together short pieces of fabric to make a separate binding. This is called pieced binding.

I chose one of my log cabin blocks, and using fabric which is in the block to make the binding. I used a regular cut pieces from the light fabrics and irregular cut pieces from the dark fabrics. Joining them together and then cutting 2” strips from each to form the binding. I machine stitched the dark binding to the light ‘logs’ and the light binding to the dark ‘logs’ and then slip stitched the back to the backing fabric.

I finished the ends of each strip at the corners in the same way as the previous task.

I am pleased with how this block has turned out.





Module 3 Chapter 4

Quilting pieced blocks

In this chapter I am going to be exploring a variety of ways to quilt my chosen blocks, using both hand and machine quilting.

Hand quilting would always be my preferred method, this may be because I am not very good at machine quilting, I don’t have a lot of experience and so the poor results may not be completely down to my lack of skill and may be, in part, to do with my machine. As they say, ‘a poor workman always blames his tools’ 🙂

I do use a Walking Foot when quilting by machine and use as thin a wadding as possible. I did find that the blocks where I had used the press piecing with a base method, machine quilted neater than the block where I didn’t use this method.

Task 1

I chose two blocks from each design, totalling six and I checked each sample was accurately square, by trimming the edges a little with the rotary cutter.

task 1

Task 2

I made each block into a quilt sandwich using a variety of waddings and a thin white backing fabric.

For the two blocks which I planned on hand quilting, I used basting pins to hold the sandwich together.

For the others, I hand tacked them together.


Task 3

I hand quilted my two chosen blocks, using two nine square blocks

For the first sample I used Hobbs Wool Light & Warm wadding which was the thickest wadding that I used.  I hand quilted diagonally through the centre of each square, both directions with a coordinating colour thread. This was an organic lightweight thread so I pulled it through paraffin wax to strengthen it a little and prevent it from breaking.


For my second sample I used Hobbs Heirloom Premium, cotton & polyester wadding and a Sashiko needle and thread to hand stitch my block, making a criss cross design in the centre square and outline quilted on four of the other squares.


Task 4

For machine quilting I used my two log cabin blocks, one that had been pieced normally and one that had been pieced with a base fabric.

For the first sample I machine quilted diagonally across the block, starting at the centre and working outwards, using a coordinating coloured quilting thread. This block had been pieced normally.

Im not happy with the result of this block, the fabric didn’t pucker but I just don’t like how it looks.


With this in mind, for the second sample I used the stitch in the ditch method of quilting, with a natural colour thread, so that the stitches wouldn’t show. I used Quilters Dream Orient wadding made from a variety of natural fibres. This block had been press pieced with a base fabric and stitched neatly with the machine.


Task 5

For this task I needed to use both machine and hand quilting methods and used my two courthouse steps blocks

For the first sample, I used Quilters Dream 100% cotton wadding. I stitched in the ditch around some of the strips of fabric, hand quilted diagonally both ways across the whole block and then outline hand quilted some of otherstrips with coordinating coloured quilting thread


For my final block I used Quilters Dream 100% cotton again. I machine quilted some of the strips using some of the decorative stitches on my machine. I then outline hand quilted some of the strips using a coordinating coloured quilting thread.

I’m happy with the way these two blocks turned out

Task 6

For this task I needed to scan all my blocks and mount into my coursebook



Module 3 Chapter 3

Courthouse Steps is a variation of the Log cabin block, adding the strips to the block in a different order creating a symmetrical block.

Task 1

I was asked to

  1. draw out a Courthouse Steps outline plan on paper. I looked up a plans for this block and there were a variety to choose from, I chose one with a larger centre square and strips of half the width of this square
  2. Cut strips of magazine/decorative paper/fabric in light and dark colours
  3. Glue these strips onto my background


I enjoyed using the photo collage app on my phone to see how this block would look repeated to make a quilt


Task 2

Here I used some of the same papers/scanned fabric and changed the position of the lights and darks to give a more ‘open’ effect, again I digitally repeated the blocks to see how they would look in a quilt



Task 3

For this task I was asked to design a Courthouse Steps block in either a contemporary or riot of colour, I chose a riot of colour using scanned fabrics



Task 4

For this task I made two Courthouse Steps blocks using plain and patterned fabrics from my stash. In the previous chapter I had found using the ‘press piecing’ with a base so much easier, that I decided to use is again in this task. Once again I used my paper plans to decided where to use each fabric, gluing small pieces in place on the paper.

For the first block all the strips were the same width, for the second block, some of the strips were half the original width.


First block with same width strips of fabric

I’m really pleased with how these blocks turned out and I used the collage app on my phone to repeat the block to see how it would look in a quilt for Task 5


Second block with a variety of width strips of fabric

Task 5

For this task I was asked to choose my favourite Courthouse Steps block and produce 2 different repeat layout patterns.


I like how the pink blocks look like cotton reels 🙂

I really enjoyed this chapter and am looking forward to quilting my fabric blocks from the previous chapters.


Module 3 Chapter 2

Log Cabin

The log cabin design is one of my favourite block patterns for quilt making. It consists of narrow strips of either plain or patterned fabric being built up around a central square. This central square is usually a deep red colour to represent the fire in a log cabin, the strips surrounding the square represent the logs of the cabins which were built by early American settlers. These are dark one side and light the other, representing night and day or sunlight and shadows.

For the log cabin pattern to be effective there needs to be a strong differential between the lights and darks. These individual blocks can then be reproduced to create a vast variety of patterns.


Task 1

For this task I was asked to draw a base layout plan for the Log Cabin, I found one of these online and so didn’t need to draw it out 😊

log cabin 2

Then I needed to cut magazine/decorative paper strips 1” wide in lights and darks of ONE colour. I had to then cut these strips to size and glue them onto the base layout


Task 2

For this task I was asked to repeat Task 1 but instead of using ONE colour I was asked to use contrasting colours



For Task 3 I was asked to replicate my ‘magazine’ log cabin blocks to produce different patterns. I did this by using a photo collage app on my iphone



Task 4

In Tasks 1,2 & 3 I used one coloured paper for the two lights and one coloured paper for the two darks. For this task I was asked to use a wider range of lights and darks, using my scanned fabrics, to produce three new log cabin blocks.

For the first version I used Autumnal colours, the dark side is made up of browns and reds and the light side is made up of orange, rust and light tan.



For the second version, I was asked to substitute one or two of the colours for a different colour. I just changed one colour. I changed one of the reds for a brown.


On reflection, I don’t think the substitution works very well, I think the brown is too bold a colour and stands out too much. I think the colours on the first version blend together better.

I then went on to make two more examples, experimenting with different colours.


The first is a monochrome example, using pinks.


The second version is using complementary colours.


I think out of these two, the pink version works best

Task 5

Making the Log Cabin block

Method 1: Piecing without a base

For this task I rotary cut 2” strips of commercial fabric, cutting equal amount of light and dark fabrics, three designs of each. I used the  that I used for task 3, printing off a few copies.

I then cut small pieces of each fabric and glued them to the spaces on the paper pattern to help me remember where I was going to sew each strip.


With the right sides together and starting with the centre square, I stitched each strip in place, using my machine. I pressed each seam allowance down with my finger nail and trimming away excess fabric as I went along. When I had finished, I ironed the block on the back and then front and I trimmed up the edges of the block with a ruler and rotary cutter.


Task 6

Method 2: Press piecing with a base

I had never used this method before, I was wondering before hand if it would be helpful or not, as soon as I begun stitching I decided that it is probably the most useful method of patchwork that I have learnt whilst studying this course!

To begin with I cut a square base fabric using a fairly stiff calico.

I had already cut out my strips of light and dark 2” strips of fabric.

I already made a plan as in the previous task, by sticking small pieces of fabric onto the paper plan




I found the centre of the base fabric by folding and creasing it. I placed my centre square on the centre and tacked it in place, stitching fairly close to the edge with no knot so that this stitching can be easily removed when finished.

I then began adding the strips accordingly, stitching through the strips and the base fabric.


This method was by far less fiddly than Method 1 and had a much neater finish. However, I should point out that by using this method to make a quilt there would be an extra layer of fabric to quilt through. I did think this method would be useful for making cushion covers.



I didn’t actually do the xtra task but I did put the photos together to see what it would like if I had done it.


Module 3 Chapter 1

 Pieces & Patterns

Module 3 is an introduction to traditional patchwork and depending on the fabric used will either reflect past times, memories, cottage crafts or become enigmatic, vibrant and contemporary.

I will aim to use both styles of fabric and maybe even incorporate both styles in one project. I enjoy experimenting with different styles of patchwork and fabric and thus creating pieces of art rather than just a functional piece. I enjoy experimenting with both colour and pattern and as I’ve been reading through the course work for this module I can see I will have some challenges ahead.

Chapter 1

Nine Patch Blocks

Task 1

For this task I was asked to scan some of my fabrics and/or find recycled papers, plain and patterned, to use for experimental layouts and trial designs. Here are a selection



Task 2

For this task I was asked to produce several ‘nine-square’ grids on plain white paper.

These are to glue or Blutack my coloured paper squares onto when planning my blocks


task 2 grid

Task 3

For this task I cut 2” squares from PLAIN coloured papers to arrange on the grids. I chose to use Blutack rather than glue so that I could reuse the pieces and the grids.I then scanned these patterns to use again later when adding to my designs


Task 4

Here, I exchanged one of my plain papers for patterned paper which contains the plain colour within it.


Task 5

I used scans of some of my personally decorated fabrics from Module 2 where I had made rubbings using transfer crayons.  I cut 2” squares and used them to replace the plain squares, changing the layout.

Task 6

Here I have created colourful nine patch blocks using colours which are randomly or innovatively placed


                                                        Diagonally symmetrical


Randomly placed, here I have used monochromatic colours where each of the squares contains shades of the same colour


Complementary colours


Task 7

For this task I produced different diagonal layout pattern repeats by arranging my squares in various ways. I made up my nine-patch block by using some easily identifiable squares with a pattern that could feature within the design.


Single unit/random layout


Regular repeat


Rotational repeat. New patterns are created as blocks rotate and different corners meet.


Rotational repeat on a larger scale


Task 8

For this task I have used complementary colours and rotated them to make different designs.



For this design I have rotated each alternative block once giving a symmetrical block design


Diagonally symmetrical layout with regular repeats

Task 9

For this task I am working with fabric and stitching. I have been asked to make four different nine patch blocks. Using plain, patterned and plain, diagonally, symmetrical or randomly placed, based on some of my paper layouts in Tasks 3-8.

The notes have given me an option to try either or all of the methods described in joining the squares.

Method 1A is using a square template cut to required size, placed on straight of grain of fabric, drawn around with a marker and cut out. I chose NOT to use this method as I find it very time consuming and the fabric slips around when I’m trying to draw around the template.

Method 1B This method is used by rotary cutting squares from strip of fabric, I prefer this method as a number of strips can be placed on top of each other and more squares cut at a time. I used this method and used squares that I already had cut and left over from previous projects.




The squares from both methods 1A & B are then stitched together. These can be chain stitched in pairs with a third square added to make strips of three and then the three strips of three joined to make a nine square block. I have rarely chain stitched fabric pieces before and did find I had to concentrate on getting the next pair of squares in position ready to stitch which was a little fiddly, but I’m sure with practice this will be a method I will use in the future.


Method 2 For this method two sets of three strips of contrasting fabric are joined together. These assembled pieces are then rotary cut horizontally making strips of three squares. Three of these strips are then joined to make a nine square block. I haven’t used this method in the past as I always thought the cut stitching would unravel, but in fact it didn’t and I am sure I will use this method in the future.


I chose to use both Method1B and Method 2 for my blocks

When making the blocks  I regularly ironed the pieces flat, making sure that seam allowance is ironed towards the darker colour fabric, which makes sewing the strips together much easier and neater.

At the end of this task I was asked to experiment with a variety of fabric colour and pattern coordination’s

I have enjoyed this first chapter of Module 3 and can see the benefits of scanning fabrics and planning blocks by laying out the pieces on a grid, although in reality I know I will probably never do it 🙂



Module 2 Chapter 6

Tactile Surfaces

In this chapter I will be looking at translating craft collages from the using fabric previous chapter into patches of rich textural ideas

I will be using the paper manipulations to inspire the fabric manipulations.

Manipulation is another method of sewing cloth and includes quilting, gathering, tucks, smocking, pleating etc. These techniques change the way cloth looks and feels and enhances decorative and functional items.

I have chosen to use calico for each of the tasks in this chapter, calico comes in different thicknesses, thread count, shade and quality. Calico creases well and creates shadow, I enjoy using natural fabrics.

Task 1

For this task I was asked to create a number of different manipulated fabric shapes. Filling an A4 page of my work book, I chose to mount these onto black paper before sticking this into my book

  • I folded a rectangle with concertina folds
  • twisted a rectangle and stitching the twists in place
  • concertinaed and fanned out a square, stitching the pinched centre in place
  • folded a square across into a triangle, pinching the centre and stitching this down to create a butterfly type shape
  • twisted a narrow-frayed strip and
  • rolled a rectangle leaving the end unrolled and glued to the paper.

task 1


Task 2

For this task I was asked to choose one manipulated shape technique and repeat it several times to produce a creative textural ‘patch’. I chose to use the butterfly type shape. With the centre of each ‘butterfly’ pinned down the ‘wings’ popped up as if in flight.

The first ‘patch’ I made by facing the ‘tails’ all together in the centre to form a square.

task 2 a

For the second patch I lay the triangles with the tips slightly overlapping the previous triangle, I made two strips side by side thus creating a flying geese quilt style pattern. Flying geese is one of my favourite quilt patterns.

task 2b

The third ‘patch’ was created by continuing the flying geese design but by laying the ‘geese’ in a curved design as if a flock of geese were flying across the sky

task 2c


Below are photos of Flying Geese quilting work I have carried out


Task 3

For this task I needed to refer to my craft collages in Chapter 5. I was asked to translate one into a small A5 fabric collage by manipulating the calico fabric and attaching it to a calico background.

I chose the photo and collage of bamboo for this task, I tore strips of calico and then rolled some and twisted some, laying them in different directions just as the bamboo is in the photo.

I have shown in the photo’s below, the development from the original photo of bamboo through to the fabric interpretation

Image 1: bamboo; Image 2: paper collage; Image 3: rolling and twisting of fabric;                Image 4:the pieces pined to the pin board; Image 5: finished piece after hand stitching to backing

task 3

This photo shows how a block could be produced by making identical individual patches, placing them in different directions, then joining them together to form a block.


For this task I have taken a plain piece of calico the same size as the patch of manipulated fabric and continued the lines across with a pencil. I then backed this with wadding and hand quilted along the lines using a coordinating thread.


By placing four images together, I have formed a picture of how this could look made into a bigger block

Health & Safety Rules Observed for Module 2

Health and safety rules observed for this module are much the same as for Module 1.

I have used my rotary cutter for cutting fabric and pictures and my large ruler which has a handle attached, HOWEVER, for one task I used a smaller ruler with no handle and managed to slice a small piece of flesh from the tip of my finger….lesson learnt!

I have used spray mount for some of the tasks in this module and recognise the need to cover my nose and mouth when using this.

I have also acquired some shelving and clear boxes to store my fabrics and work. As I mentioned in Module 1 H & S, I suffer with back problems and this has made it easier for me to find my work and not have to bend over boxes searching for things.

I always keep scissors, rotary cutters,  glues, inks, paint etc out of the way of little fingers 😊

My Work book
