Mountain (A Quilt Block Tutorial)

Last year, my lovely friend Alyce asked me if I'd like to design a block for another of her quilt block series. I love working with Alyce - she is one of those scarily organised people who run amazingly well organised quilt alongs. Last year it was the popular Bee Hive series (which I designed my Checker Block for), and this year it's The Modern HST Sampler. Alyce has invited a bunch of designers to contribute block designs for this sampler, including me. And today I'm excited to show you the first block I designed for this QAL - Mountain!


You can pop over to Alyce's blog for the block tutorial - but I thought I'd show you some of the possibilities with this block. It's not quite as versatile as Checker, but there are still some pretty cool effects you can achieve with this one :o).

I love the movement in this simple layout, where the blocks are rotated to create over-sized pinwheels.


And the angles created using two lines of blocks going down the quilt are really interesting. This would be a really fun design to quilt!


I hope you're all having a great week!

xx Jess

Testimony By Wendy Owen ,How to get your ex back fast!

I was hurt and heart broken when a very big problem occurred in my marriage seven months ago, between me and my husband . so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce. he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the Email address of the spell caster whom he visited. Templeofloveandprosperity@gmail.com. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day. What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me, and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past 7 months, gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back. So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster.
