Peggy’s Puzzle

“Peggy’s Puzzle” is an original pattern for a table topper or a wall hanging designed with beginners in mind.  Each 15″ block covers the basics of hand-applique……circles, stems, bias strips, layering and points.

The patterns for the 4 blocks and border are free to download on my website Simple Bird Studio.   There are also some Youtube videos to go along with each block.

And,  here is “Peggy’s Puzzle” finally finished!  Rose Bell from Elite Quilting did the stunning machine quilting!!










Okay…it’s not exactly finished.  I still have to bind it!


My addiction of handpiecing hexies continues.  I am using Inklingo to print my shapes.  I just have to fill in the last of the beige section and add the dark brown border.  Will it stop there, or will I continue on?  Good question!



A week ago I picked up the latest copy of Quiltmania and these house blocks were on the cover. Since I am trying really hard to use up my stash, I thought this quilt would be a good place to start! Too much fun!


Til next time….

  1. Your hexagon quilt looks terrific but if it is going to grow any bigger someone is going to have to move! I have the same problem at my place…..put a quilt on the floor and in a matter of seconds there’ll be a cat on top of it!

  2. Your table topper is gorgeous! So bright and summery. Rose Bell did a wonderful job of the quilting, and adding texture to the flowers. It really makes them look alive. Congrats!

  3. I love your house blocks. Are you going to do the applique between them? I picked up that magazine too because I love that quilt – I haven’t started yet though :0)

  4. Peggy’s Puzzle is so beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing this design with us. Your other projects are awesome also. You are so productive!
