Mrs Noahs quilt-along


two posts in one evening, I can't remember the last time that happened!!

This week Duniris and I have just set up a new flickr group called Mrs Noahs Quilt-along. It is for people who have this book by Janet Bolton, or fancy getting it and doing some applique and mini-quilting. Also if you have any of her other books,or have been to workshops by Janet Bolton, or if you just like her work, please feel free to join our group, post any relevant pics, and tell us what you are up to. We would love to see you!!

You can get the book on Amazon or sometimes on ebay shops, and it comes with fabric pieces that you can just applique your own fabric scraps straight onto. I finished my quilt a bit back, and have begun another one called my grandmothers patchwork quilt.

They are easy to pick up and set down when you get interrupted by small children (just my experience!!) and are great for summer as you can take a couple of squares and scraps of fabric virtually anywhere, a needle, some thread, just slip it in your bag!! Come on, you know you want to - join in!!!

hi there - thanks for visiting my blog - just a question - when you made your quilt, did you trace the pieces like it says in the book or just use loose pieces of fabric and then cut and turn? I would love to make this quilt but it feels a bit labor intensive at the moment

Hi - I've just come across from Weird Bunny and am delighted to see even more Janet Bolton fans out there! I have just posted some photos on my blog of pictures I made of my three children inspired by her In a Patchwork Garden book.
