Somerset Part 3

In the next week or two this should be showing up in your mailboxes, if you subscribe that is. I can't imagine why you wouldn't. Personally I think this is one of the top 3 magazines for quilters out there. Just my opinion.
Anyway, this issue will have part 3 of my Somerset medallion. Are you making this quilt? It is a fairly easy quilt to make and with the 4 part format it makes it easy to stay on top of it time-wise.
This installment you will be making some quick to applique compass blocks and piecing simple chain blocks.
This block belongs to Judy Williamson. She is one of the three sisters that form Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine. Judy is making Somerset and is going to post her progress on the Primitive Q&P blog. We would love to see your version if you are making the quilt. Send your photos to me or the girls at the magazine and we will share!

I got a couple of good blog suggestions from some of you and will be putting out some posts soon. A post on big stitch is coming up next.
Happy Quilitng, Dawn


  1. Can't wait for the new book AND the new posts. I would love to see one on the Big Stitch. I'm sure I could figure it out eventually but having had someone that has done it already with some hints of what makes it easier would be great!!

  2. Love this magazine - I always anxiously await its arrival in my mail box! Glad someone suggested info on the big stitch, I would like to try it.

  3. I agree with the other folks about the Big Stitch - I love it too, just not sure how it's done!?

  4. Hi, Dawn, thanks for posting my progress. This quilt is a joy to make and a feast for the eyes!

    I was just thinking this weekend how I would love to learn how to Big Stitch. Can't wait for the post!

  5. Hello Dawn, I just came by your site via Rabbits Lair. enjoyed all the information on this blog. So sorry to see the injury on hand it does look very painful. But most of all the inspiration of hand quilting lit my fire. the large stitch quilting was an eye opener for me as I tend to make small stitches but no more. I am looking forward to your new book
