Candy Cane Dresden Kaleidoscopes

I always think I am going to do better and post every day or at least every other day. Yeah right!  I am doing good to get in here every couple of months or so. LOL

I am a procrastinator of the worst kind! But I do love sharing my quilting with you all. so here I am again now that I have something to write about.

I absolutely love making Dresden Kaleidoscopes. And I love miniatures. so here are some Candy Cane mini dresden k's I've been working on. I was thinking I will post 6 of them at a time on Ebay and leave them as appliques to be used by the quilter. These are 4" in size.

Here is the fabric these came from --  I use a plastic blade and fussy cut the blades                           


Last year I made some Christmas ornaments out of mini Dresden Ks so I am thinking I may turn some of these into ornaments this year and offer them for sale. These are 4" in size. One picture is just more up close than the other they are both the same size.

        Here are some of the other dresden kaleidoscopes ornaments I made
         last year. They are all 4" in size

   I am going to work on more and will post more pics when I get them done!

    Wishing you all Sunshine and Laughter!!!

What a Whirl BOM

Here is my newest BOM. I posted this on the Life's a Quilt group on Facebook.
You will see mention of the Life's A Quilt group in the PDF but ignore that. You can find the shortcut block directions here on my blog or on my website.

                                 It is now available on my website as well.

                                          What a Whirl Quilt Block

                  And this is the quilt you'd get if you sew 4 of these blocks together


I always add some variations of the quilt block and related quilts

and the third color block 

                    So you can find the other two quilts in the PDF I posted on my                                website  -   http://www.piecencutpatchwork.com/

           If you have any questions or need any help just let me know.
                      email me @     patchesbyr@yahoo.com

Stars Upon Stars Quilt Block

I bought my EQ5 in 2006. In that time til now I have created alot of quilt blocks! They all use my shortcut blocs.

You can find the shortcut blocks here
click on the Shortcut blocks tab at the top of the page to see all of the different blocks directions.
                                         Stars Upon Stars

This quilt block is made using 
my Star Point Shortcut Blocks.
Here is the layout so you 
can see where the blocks lay 
and how the colors are placed. 

                             Here you can see the 4 blocks
                              that go together to make up
                              the top right 4 patch and the
                              bottom left 4 patch.
                                dark pink in two corners
                              and here you see the 4 blocks
                             that go together for the top left
                             4 patch and the bottom right
                             4 patch

                                 light pink in  two corners

                To make this quilt block you will need a template.      
                  It's best to have an acrylic(hard plastic) square.

                     You can make this quilt block into a 12 1/2"
                     quilt block if you use a 3 1/2" template.

                However you can use any size template to make it
                 any size you like.

                Refer back to the shortcut block directions to make
                the Star Point Blocks.

                If you have any questions or need help you can
