Solar Flare quilt phase 1


I really loved the look of the solar flare quilt, shown on Tula Pinks update, I showed it to Mum & she brought it for me. I haven’t paper foundation paper pieced for a while. It was lovely to get back into it.

Yellow & pink block

This is the first set I made, I soon got back into the swing of folding, cutting & pressing.

Block 2
Blocks 2 & 3 together

So that’s the big square blocks done, on to the smaller ones

Block 4

These blocks are triangles, so together they make quite nice squares.

Blocks 5 &6

So with 4 of each block made, a large quantity of squares cut, 2 from each fabric & some borders cut.

It’s time to start thinking about construction. Time to grab a coffee & read though the next lot of instructions.

Dr Who : 12th Doctor 



I finished the 12th Doctor in time for Stephen’s Birthday ( it’s just taken a while to photograph) I used Allison Hoffman’s pattern from Ravelry , she has a web site craftiscool.com.  I kept to the pattern except I used small eyes ( you know the ones you have) & I embroidered his hair, I started to the crochet version & did not like it.  He really wasn’t too difficult to make & I enjoyed making him.
