Janet Olsen (RogueQuilter) She lives in the beautiful mountains of Utah and is a prolific quilter. Janet writes and posts photos of the amazing quilts she makes in her blog RogueQuilter.Blogspot.com. Seriously... a must read if you love mini quilts and blocks! For as long as I've known Janet, she has made small quilts and very often changes things up from the original plan...going way smaller...hence the "rogue" quilter title of her blog. And, boy....are we glad she does!
Circa 1880 Nine Patch quilt. She is very active in the Circa club Facebook group and at Village Dry Goods Quilt Shop in Brigham City, UT where club meetings are held. Janet began making what is now commonly known as 'rogue' blocks, and inserting them here and there into her Circa 1880 Nine Patch quilt. The results are stunning. Check out her blog posts to see photos of her amazing Circa 1880 Nine Patch quilt.
A little while ago, Janet surprised me when a package arrived in the mail, gifting me with a collection of rogue blocks. I just had to share them with you. The photos above show how Janet cleverly used the Endearment phrases from my Endearment fabric. She also used a piece of the selvage to sew my name into one of the blocks. Love, love, love them all!!
If you'd like to make an Endearment block, which would be so cool in a label....Remember Me...you can ask for the fabric at your LQS or buy it here.
And...if that doesn't have your jaw dropping.....
Surely this batch will! Look at that Log Cabin and Pineapple block!! And...the orange print in the center of the Uneven Nine Patch is fussy cut with the block inside the Circa 1880 Nine Patch!!
Janet...you're simply amazing! Your creativity inspires so many people and I just love what you make. Not to mention, you're a wonderful and kind person I am blessed to call my friend.
Thank you for gifting me with these rogue blocks. I will make a special quilt just for them!
