Winter Carnival is here

Issue 15 of Love Patchwork & Quilting signals the start of a series of three solids only quilts made by me. The first one is a Kaleidoscope quilt for which I used the new Kona Cotton colours and plenty of older ones.

The quilt is paper pieced and suitable for beginners and is a great opportunity to use your fabric scraps.

Those new Kona Colours are wonderful and I had a lot of fun pairing them with other contrasting colours to produce a real carnival of colours.

This quilt features about 80 different colours of which most are bright and a few more sedate that make the riotous ones pop out even more.

I quilted in my customary continuous circle quilting technique that I have sewn a lot again lately. It really is a never ending love affaire.

Next week I will show you a few more quilts from other designers (I don't have a copy of the mag yet as I managed to let my own subscription run out....great, isn't it)


  1. I really love this quilt, all those colours are so luscious!

  2. Gosh this is fabulous! I love your use of colour. This should have been on the cover, I reckon. You make me want to try paper piecing - might have to be my 2015 resolution.

  3. What a wonderful looking quilt - all those great colors and the binding just sets it off wonderfully. Can't wait to get my issue and make up this quilt as I have a bundle of Kona that I got many months ago just waiting for the right quilt to come along and it just did. Maybe I should wait for the other quilts before I do this one.

  4. Ooooh I just love it, and the quilting is fabulous!

  5. Nice color on the binding!! Lovely colors.

  6. Your quilt is beautiful and inspiring. I made my first all solid quilt last month and I love working with solids more than prints.


Thank you for your comments! I love reading them and will answer every question you have on my projects. But I have a very busy daytime job and am therefore not able to thank each and every comment. Please don't be offended if I won't reply.
