Prairie points

Not much to report from these parts at the moment. Creativity is crawling along thanks to an irritated nerve in my neck that is giving me the equivalent of sciatica in my arm and shoulder which is just peachy when you need to move said arm to use the sewing machine! I've had to do some quick thinking to rejig my plans for the Quilt Now BOM to reduce some of the reliance on the sewing machine for the final few blocks.

As Issue 9 has just hit the shelves of shops in the UK I can show you what we've done so far and I have to admit to being delighted with it.
All of the fabrics are from various collections for Art Gallery Fabrics and they all play beautifully together. If you're on Instagram you can search #quiltnowbom to see pictures of other BOM quilts in progress.
This month's BOM technique is Folded patchwork Prairie Points. A super quick technique that demanded a fun BOM project - a travel memory game. I dug out some of my Laurie Wisbrun and Heather Ross hoard for a bit of fussy cutting fun.
The free pattern will be  is available on the Quilt Now website soon now. I'm off to finish watching the Great British Sewing Bee now. Catch you soon x


  1. Quilt is looking fab! That trapped nerve sounds painful. I hope it eases soon, Jxo

  2. Sorry you are struggling with the trapped nerve. I hope it will resolve itself soon for you. Thanks for linking my quilt pics so far! I love what you've done with this BOM but you already know that. Curious as to what you will be up to next if we are reducing reliance on sewing machine?

  3. Your quilt is looking great! Hope the physio can do something about the trapped nerve, and quick!

  4. Looks fantastic so far. Hope the nerve calms down. I've had the sciatica version and its not fun at all. It will come right though so hopefully it will ease a bit with the physios attention.


Lovely comments read with glee everyday.
