Lighthouse Block

Lighthouse Block

The Lighthouse block is a very busy block with lots of individual pieces. All the pieces are triangles, most of them half-square triangles with some quarter-square triangles thrown in...

Lighthouse Quilt

Lighthouse Quilt

With lighthouses featuring prominently in Jutta’s travel diary “Great Lakes 2005”, it was inevitable that sooner or later we would publish a lighthouse quilt project on Quilt around the World. And here it is!

Arrow Crown

Arrow Crown Block

The Arrow Crown block is one of our all time favourite blocks. It is a fairly busy block with lots of pieces and looks very good especially in larger sizes. We wouldn’t recommend making the Arrow Crown in any size smaller than 9” because the individual pieces are tiny and won’t do this proud block sufficient justice...

Double Pinwheel

Double Pinwheel

The Double Pinwheel block is an easy block to sew and a perfect companion for more complicated blocks, a great addition to any sampler quilt and very useful as a sashing block or component in a border design. Despite its simplicity, the “whirling” triangles give the block a lot of dynamic and offer countless options for colour and pattern placement to achieve ever more different looks... (21 July 2011)

Martha-Quilt

The Martha-Quilt is the result of an inspirational process which started with the May block of the American Impressions BOM series.

And the bonus block demanded an attractive setting so as not to join other solo blocks in the orphan block container awaiting an uncertain future.

The personality of Martha Washington herself also boosted motivation for this quilt. Her biography is an interesting and very instructive read and we thought that this proud and brave Virginian more than deserved this small tribute in cloth... (20 July 2011)

Card Trick

Card Trick

... The Card Trick block is easy to make if you cut and sew with care and accuracy. Moreover, you can choose whether you want to have two or four different “cards” in your block. Our instructions here are written for two different cards as this won’t leave any leftovers... (19 July 2011)

Firmament Corner Block

Firmament Corner Block

And here comes the corner block to complete the Firmament block family. As the border block, it was designed to continue the secondary patterns into the border area... (4 July 2011)

Firmament Border Block

Firmament Border Block

This block is the border block for the Firmament quilt. It was designed to continue the secondary patterns into the border area while at the same time introducing a new design element which delineates the centre of the quilt. On its own, the block doesn’t seem to have any other use than for this quilt. But who knows? Perhaps a strip quilt variation sometime in the future when all the scraps again threaten to inundate our workroom... (16 June 2011)
