Happy 2018

London Bus Mug Rug

Rumour has it that blogging has 'missed the bus' but I think there is still a role for blogging within the quilting/patchwork arena.
The Patchsmith's Alphabet pattern has many uses.

Whilst Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest are proving more popular, blogging can provide a way to share techniques, tips and skills in more detail.   So I will still be blogging throughout 2018.

In fact, I hope to highlight a block a week from my upcoming Patchsmith Sampler Book which is due to be completed later this month and I'll throw in the odd project or two along the way.
The 6" Schoolhouse Block is from The Patchsmiths Sampler pattern book 

Until then, Happy 2018.  I hope it brings your fun, fabric and friends in abundance.

p.s.  If you want a peep at some of the blocks that will be included in The Patchsmith's Sampler Blocks book check out my Instagram feed.


  1. I'm so glad you will still be blogging! I'm looking forward to seeing blocks from your book.

  2. I agree with you! Happy 2018 Amanda!

    1. Happy New Year to you too Vera. Hope it is a good year. 💟

  3. Looking forward to your Patchsmith Sampler book! So glad you will keep on blogging. Love the above shown blocks!

  4. I really like reading blogs. I just joined Instagram because I wanted to see additional content but I am not enamored with it. Keep on blogging!

  5. I still enjoy reading blogs and writing my own! Love your mug rugs! Happy New Year Amanda! Christine x
