This is a fresh and pretty quilt made for Sewing Quarter. I had fun quilting this one and doing a bit of appliqué. The four patches were strip pieced so it came together quite easily.

The Quick Step quilt pattern is from the book Quick & Easy Quilts from Annie's, Leisure Arts. I made a smaller version than the one in the book, with four blocks and sashing.

The wavy lines in the centre were free motion quilted and then I used the walking foot to do some straight lines and curves around the outside. I didn't mark any lines, just eyeballed it. I really enjoyed creating the curves! Given more time I think this pattern would be perfect for some intricate free motion quilting and those larger sections could be filled with beautiful designs, something floral to match the flowers created by the appliqué perhaps.

I also made this houndstooth table runner, which I failed to actually take a proper picture of but essentially it was two blocks with an ochre border. That colour is beautiful. Again this was created using strip piecing, very simple to piece and such a bold impactful result! The pattern is from Runners: Bed and Tabletop by Sue Marsh.

You can see here how the block is made up of black and white squares with striped patches in between. Click here to watch my demo.

I would love to create a full quilt of these blocks. For now I'm working on more projects and creating some really fun patterns I hope to share soon. Wishing you all a lovely weekend and may it be filled with sewing!
