Quarter of Nine #19

Calico Puzzle

A disappearing block is a traditional block that has been cut into four quarters and then reassembled.

I enjoy designing with disappearing blocks. I thought I'd take another stab at Calico Puzzle.

Quilter's Connection


This is a quilt I designed and made using a Northcott panel.

The panel was given to three different designers, Susan Jensen, Jean Boyd an me. Our designs and the patterns for them can be found in the Fall (September) issue of Quilter's Connection Magazine.

I've never worked with a panel before. It was a new experience. Rather than simply add a border around the panel, I decided to cut the panel into three pieces and insert the word "Imagine".

Why "Imagine"? Well, because it was a picture of a reindeer made of snowflakes that had come together  like a super-dense constellation of stars in the night sky. I'm asking you to imagine that and then imagine even more.

Four Friends Quilt 4

Look What Susan Did

A while ago I taught a class on sewing my Four Friends pattern to the members of the Fabric Stashers Guild here in Calgary.

Each one turned out  a little different. This is the one Susan did.

I'm not sure but I think those are Susan's fingers. If they are, then that's Susan hiding behind her quilt.
