I haven't gone mad. I KNOW Christmas is over!

Over the 2 1/2 years since i made this i have had a ton of requests for a pattern for this block.   I can't believe how popular it is. It's had over 2200 views on Flickr and appears to have been pinned on Pinterest (i WILL join that one of these days!!) a ton of times too.

Writing some instructions has been languishing on my to-do list and has never made it to the top. I finally got a rocket up my bum after receiving a lovely e-mail from Susan in Oklahoma.  Her e-mail brightened my day so much that i really wanted to finally get some instructions done.

There are instructions for how to make this 10" blocks, and i have added fabric calculations for those of you who might want to make a quilt. The links to download the PDFs for the pattern and the templates are on my Patterns/Tutorials tab at the top of the page.

Have fun!

Peeking my head out to wish you all a belated Happy New Year!

I can't believe i haven't blogged since last June.

Well, i can actually. First and foremost as I'm a bit crap keeping up with blogging, but more than anything since the Fat Quarterly retreat last June it's big one massive roller coaster of busyness. You know, the kind of busyness where every waking moment is jammed packed to the brim?

We've been in 2013 for nearly a month now but the strangest thing is that I've only felt like it's a new year for about a week. How does that work?  I guess I'm a bit slow on the uptake.  I wanted to do a round up of this years makes but as there is still a ton of (the most exciting stuff) i can't show you. This will have to do for now....

I am hoping to be a bit less crap in 2013. I have seriously missed keeping up to date with what everyone has been up to and, I've missed you folks.

A belated Happy New Year to you all and I'll be back soon. I hope  :-)
