Dear quilter, I hope I find you fit and well in these peculiar times? Sewing has always been a great pleasure of mine but never more so than during this pandemic. I have three new quilt blocks to show you, a frog, a snowdrop and a bunny quilt pattern.
Next time you see a bunny rabbit, spare a thought for all the quilt designers who have to figure out how on earth to fit those ears into a square quilt block! Here is my bunny block. He would look super in white for an Easter sewing project. Or you could do a series of bunnies in different colours to make a wall hanging or cot quilt for a baby’s nursery.
Like so many, I am always delighted to spot the first snowdrop of spring. Their humble little bowed heads herald the start of spring and they seemed particularly significant this year after the long, bleak winter we have all shared.
Finally, I want to show you my little frogs. We dug a pond into the garden of our house when we first moved in. That first year there was two frogs, a large yellowy female and a male that seemed much too small. Now the pond teems with frogs each spring, and the garden is overrun with froglets when the summer comes.
The frog pattern is very straightforward to sew and comes with instructions for a 12″ and 6″ size block.
The snowdrop, frog and bunny quilt pattern blocks are all constructed with basic piecing techniques. Use them as pillow centres, mug rugs or put multiple blocks together to form a table runner or wall hanging.
The patterns are all available now in my shop. If you like these patterns, you may also like my bluebird pattern.
I am constantly adding new patterns, so do sign up to my blog so you don’t miss a thing!

What fun patterns! I love the snowdrop – I may have to just run off an make one as soon as I can. It is a little before we see them in Maine and Massachusetts. Good to see your blog again!
