For years I kept in my possession two worn mohair scarves, one pink, one blue. They were my maternal grandmother’s and one of the many old family things that I felt connected to.That connection took a different turn when I started seeing, and collecting, other old mohair scarves and mohair rugs - one day they would be given new life together was my thinking.An old cottage bought for our growing family, including new grandchildren, bought together the time and place for celebrating mohair. It gets pretty cold down south in Winter - what better place to be covered in inter generational love and warmth?The quilt itself is simply made of blocks that feature a pieced-in mohair circle. The circles are rotary cut using a small rotary cutter and a set of purchased circle templates. The bias grain on both the backgrounds and the circles make it easy to machine stitch. The mohair circles also have a circle of batting underneath to fill and push them forward.My backgrounds are corduroy and all the circles are mohair wovens but woven wools would be beautiful to use also. The technique will work for cottons too.Also included are instructions for the blind/ back binding. This little detail is wonderful on many quilts.As usual my patterns are just a starting point - I’ll give you enough variations to keep you circling happily for ages.

Stargazey Quilts

Since 1996, under the business name “Stargazey”I have developed contemporary piecing and appliqué techniques in a distinctively contemporary, colorful, rule-breaking style. C&T has published my three books; Cut Loose Quilts, Reverse Appliqué With No Brakez and Free & Eazy Circles. Each book also explores less structured approaches to quilt making. Designing fabrics for Marcus Brothers is probably what I'm best known for. My twenty-two collections of colorful,simple prints are easily recognizable. Whilst my publishing new work is minimal of late uploading older much loved patterns is still ongoing. I'm really loving being intricately involved in growing skills in my local textile community whilst forging new paths in my artwork.
