It’s a ‘Magic Pudding’ …

by EQI Member: Robyn R.

Well, that’s what I’m calling my box of squares! Every time I think there’s an end to them, it magically seems to fill up again. Loved reading Norman Lindsay’s book as a child, wouldn’t it be lovely to have one of these bowls during lockdown!

Whilst ‘down the rabbit hole’ of the internet, I came across this scrap patchwork idea by Judy Gauthier of Bungalow Quilting & Yarn.

Judy is an author of five books, ‘Sensational Quilts for Scrap Lovers’, being her latest published in 2020. She demonstrates the Treasure Box block here, and that is what caught my attention on YouTube.

So delving back into the pile of 5″ blue squares (had to alter the cutting ever so slightly as Judy used 5.5″ squares - but hey, we’re adaptable right?), to find matching pairs. Not enough for an on-point quilt so added some sashing and a border for a small quilt.

Another therapeutic ‘leaders and enders’ stitching while listening to talking books - currently ‘The Poison Orchid’ by S. Denzil & A. Taylor. What do you listen to while stitching: TV; radio; music; talking books; birds in the backyard …?
