New Quilt Pattern – My Blue Heaven

Back in 2011, you may remember that I organised a Quiltalong on this blog and we made this heavenly quilt.

My Blue Heaven

The quilt is a sampler quilt made up with 12 different patchwork blocks in a selection of colourways coupled with appliqué blocks. And to make it a little more challenging than your run of the mill Sampler Quilt the blocks are all 6 inch blocks. It was great fun to sew and is a pretty impressive looking quilt. It also can be made in three different sizes.

Here are some of the blocks.


I actually made some lemon blocks too but haven’t got around to putting those ones together yet.

Blue & Lemon Blocks

For some time I have been meaning to write up all the patterns and instructions into a pattern for sale in my Pattern Shop as I know many of my more recent followers would have missed it.

Well once again ……..mission accomplished. You will now find the pattern in the Pattern Shop. I have named it My Blue Heaven.

However, it’s not all good news. It is still waiting to be quilted! So, I am not quite as virtuous as I may appear. But, little by little I am whittling away at the bucket list.

  1. My previous comment was incorrect – I followed you on Google+ not Bloglovin … 🙂 Looking forward to keeping up with your posts!

  2. I am a quilter wannabe, currently with a broken sewing machine and a month old blog, that I am enjoying spending all of my free time on – but I am going to follow your inspiring blog on bloglovin and hope it will motivate me to begin sewing again! So glad I stumbled on this wonderful site!

  3. Congratulations,that`s great!!

    Congratulations on getting that task accomplished. I think writing the patterns is far more difficult than actually sewing the blocks!

  6. Hi Leslie, Yes, I remember. I made these blocks with your SAL. Thank you very much.
    I have the blocks in a box and not cut the small squares to attach these blocks and have my top. I hope to do this sometime later.
