Dixie Dairy Sampler from 2013


Dixie Diary by ColvinKiwi, 2014

The Block of the Month a couple of years ago was Dixie Diary. Did I ever show you Dorry at ColvinKiwi's finished quilt?  She emphasized the simple pieced blocks in a geometric set and added corner blocks of her own design. The set fabric is from Basic Gray at Moda.

Su Gardner did the long arm quilting.

See many more pictures at Dorry's post here:

And here's Dustin's top.

I provide the block ideas. They provide the creativity.

Look at Dustin's "Tops to Be Quilted" Flickr page:


Dixie Diary from Cookie's Creek

It is gratifying once in a while to see that SOMEBODY actually followed my pattern. That would be Barbara at Cookie's Creek.





I'm still a big fan of pink and brown as you can see in the current Old Cambridge Pike line for Moda.


Shop owners and teachers looking for a historical Block of the Month might want to kit Dixie Diary for a beginner's piecing and applique series in Old Cambridge Pike.

The free patterns are still on the blog. See links to each below:
