Noodle Box

The latest edition of Down Under Quilts magazine is about to hit the stores and I have a project in it.
Look for this cover and you'll find my.......
Noodle Box quilt featuring the quilt-as-you-go technique.

The blocks are a big 17" and in mine the foundation pieced flying geese surround four large print Oriental designs - yours could be whatever you like! They're a good size for extensive machine quilting as single blocks then they're joined together with thin sashing which won't overwhelm your block centres.

The quilt name came from the border blocks which are also QAYG and are attached to the centre blocks after foundation piecing and quilting.

It's a great project to practice machine quilting smaller pieces which you can then combine into a small quilt or wall hanging.
The magazine is issue # 159.
Also in this issue is a project from my friend "Heidi" - really Jeanette - from Gone Aussie Quilting.
Check it out for a lovely Orange Peel quilt.


  1. It sounds like a great episode of Down Under quilts!! Your Noodle Box is such a great quilt!!

  2. I love this quilt and I love that I got to be right next to you in the magazine:) This quilt is one I really want to make, however, if you only knew how many octagonal quilts I have already made you might think I was addicted! The flying geese idea was brilliant.
