Feathered Nine Patch and Applique

I've started quilting my repro nine patch and I'm very happy with my choice of a feathered wreath in the setting squares and CC in the nine patch blocks .

I used a stencil and pounce pad to mark the wreaths and a CC ruler by which is so easy to use.

I've also started the centre for a quilt I've had in mind for a while.  I'm using a pattern from the Blackbird Designs girls book When the Cold Wind Blows.

I have it all prepped and most of the pieces stuck on with a dot or two of Roxanne's glue but my camera batteries went flat and I can't for the life of me find the new ones I bought, argh!

I have also been playing around with some repros for a Jacob's Ladder I need another quilt started!  I saw a couple in magazines and couldn't help myself.  This is in the Autumn 2011 Special Quiltmania, it's made by Quilting With the Past Lucy Kramer Van Der Sluis. gorgeous!

Here's my humble beginning.

Hope everyone is happy quilting their way through another year.


  1. So good to see your post Rowena. As always your selection of colors are so you and your style. Just beautiful!

  2. That Jacobs Ladder is fabulous! I made one years and years ago for a friend as a wedding gift. It was nice, and she liked it, but the colour placement in this one is to die for!!
