In November I got the quilting bug out of the blue. I started making quarter square triangle blocks for a new king-sized quilt project. And quickly realized that a king-sized quilt was going to be a loooooong haul. A smaller project would let me finishing something much sooner and feel that satisfaction of a finished object. A tutorial for a jelly roll block inspired me to make a miniature quilt for Maks, the Morkie I did a bunch of sewing for with my handmade pet accessories business Oxford Dogma. I used fabrics leftover from his harnesses, mixing and matching based…
Technically, this was my second quilt, but the first one was fifteen years ago and I didn’t know what the heck I was doing at the time, so…this is my first proper quilt.
I liked making these placemats so much more than I had anticipated — the piecing process is more fun in real life than it appears on video.
Right angles usually keep me in my happy place. But with this simple and conservative pillow, some wild and crazy 45° angles took it to the next level.
