My new quilt Peek-a-Boo Farm (Part 1/April) is in the latest issue of Popular Patchwork magazine with Part 2 going into the May issue.
Here's a couple of pics -

I really enjoyed designing and making this interactive quilt with Barn Doors that can be opened by the child to find the Barns with a variety of animals hidden behind the Shutters. Numbers 1 - 10  helps a child to learn, while undoing buttons can help with Fine Motor skills too.

I haven't been here for a while as I've been working on projects but thought I'd jump back in here to add one of my new or old? projects as it was a UFO from 2007-2008. The friends swap was between 7 of us and we each did a Row for the other 6 members using our own chosen design but with their chosen colour/s schemes. Mine has been waiting for 9 years to be brought to completion and with a little nudge from the same group of ladies, I have now completed my own Row-by-Row Quilt which I love and have added the names of those who made the other 6 rows. Here's my photo to share with you....

My Hounds-tooth Cushion design

My Hounds-tooth Cushion project is in the shops now in the February issue of Popular Patchwork Magazine.

The pattern is very easy – only 2 main pieces plus additional squares and can be made in either 20 inch size as in the Navy and White or 18 inch as in the Yellow and Red versions. For the pieced fronts you may find some or all the pieces in your fabric scrap bag/box needing pieces larger than 5 inches square.

Cushion Backs

The cushion backs can be quilted as desired.
Stay dry, warm and well in the wet and cold weather.

Bringing in the New Year...

Hi All
Here we are in 2015 and it's sadly been a memorable year already. I hope those who need hugs will feel better for the virtual ones I'm sending you.

Since posting last, I have started my own home-based Business -


My website can be found at  -  
http://marianturnercraftylady.co.uk/ where you'll find what I've been up to for the past year or so. 

I've ventured into writing Craft Tutorial eBooks and now have two eBooks on Amazon.co.uk, my first being uploaded in early June 2014.

In each of my eBooks, I offer after-sales email support so you can contact me for guidance if you need assistance. To date, no-one has needed any support, though many individual Satchels have been made by customers from my Tutorial eBook. My ebooks have loads of photographic step-by-step stages for making your own Satchel, to create a visual guide to the process. 

My first eBook came from my designing and making One-Off!Satchels from which I have written  'How to Make Your Own Fabric Satchel'. The book takes you from the beginning of making your own patterns to completion of a beautiful Satchel/s in your own choice of fabrics.

To see samples of Satchels I've made drop into my new website as above. 

My second eBook 'How to Make A Fun Applique Wallhanging'

was uploaded to Amazon in late October 2014.

Both eBooks have received great Reviews in Popular Patchwork Magazine, the magazine online group I have been a member of since 2008. 

I am at present in the middle of a special project and eBook 3 which I hope to upload in the next couple of months. I've had a busy, busy time but I'm enjoying every minute....

My eBooks can be found on Amazon here - copy and paste into browser


OR just type in the title/s or my name into Amazon.co.uk and the site will take you there.

Wishing you All a Happy and Healthy New Year for 2015.

Hi All

Today I've spent a lot of my day working on my new Website, finding my way around it. The web Tutorials have opened up more options for me now and in time I'm sure I'll be happy with it. I've managed to set up two slideshows - my Underground Railroad blocks (at present a UFO) and photos of 40 One-Off!satchels I made before I recently wrote my Tutorial ebook. The Satchel I made for the Tutorial ebook is not revealed on the new site....for a good reason.....

Good health wishes to our Ken and Bren - thinking about you both and sending positive thoughts to you both. Get well soon!

To all who need some positive virtual support, I'm sending a bucket-load. Use it wisely and recover quickly...

For now, it's back to the sister website to develop it more...
