Wednesday Quilt Club

Well, it’s good to emerge from the Christmas holiday time warp… and get back to sewing.  The Wednesday Quilt Club is proving to be great fun with a lovely bunch of ladies working on a wide range of different quilts.  I’ve already learnt lots of great tips and Wednesday is now my favourite day of the week at Edinburgh Patchwork.  There’s still space, so come along if you are interested (10am – lunch time).  It’s £3.50 which covers tea, coffee & biscuits, use of the sewing machines if you need one and of course the ever useful design wall.

Pamela and I both love the ‘Atelier’ Jelly rolls, the latest offering from 3 sisters for moda.  It’s a gorgeous mix of red, duck-egg blue and purple.  Pamela has been using her jelly roll to make Pat Stone’s stunning ‘Courthouse Steps’ quilt, an easy and quick pattern with not a single seam to match up.  Pamela's quilt

 

 

 

 

 

 

I decided to make up a pattern using a striped hexagon block (is it a six-sided spider’s web or a kaleidoscope?) that wastes almost nothing of the jelly roll, really efficient.  But beware – unlike Pat’s pattern, EVERY seam has to line up!  All great fun and both patterns are free with an ‘Atelier’ jelly roll (or any other jelly roll).A's spider web

  1. Ali, I love your Courthouse Steps quilt. I’d like to share it with the Facebook group, “A Quilt Block a Day,” but want to link to the pattern. Can you tell me where to find it?

    • Hello,
      The pattern was written by a lady called Pat Stone and appeared in ‘creative quilting’ Special issue page 40 under the title ‘Courthouse Steps’. Pat just gave us the paper copy of the pattern but I can get more information from her tomorrow if you like. Best wishes, Ali
