WIP Wednesday: Frankly, Hank Progress

Flying in the face of quilt show norms seems to be very attractive to me…. or maybe it’s because I can play with my best pal, the Sewline Glue Pen, that’s firing me up? Either way, I’m making quick progress on the Frankly, Hank quilt and steaming through glue pen refills. At Festival this year […]

Behold – the Junk in the Trunk dress!

I did it, oh yeah, just in the nick of time! Here is the Junk in the Trunk dress for the 3D category at the Quilt and Stitch Village show in all it’s crazy glory. The competition rules dictated that entries must be three layers and it didn’t say that this was with exception to this […]

Q2 Finish Along Goals

Well I didn’t do that great last quarter – I finished two of four projects and made a ton of new stuff instead. Naturally then, two of these projects roll over into quarter two’s finish along. Firstly the Hadley doughnuts are as I left them- one partial block. I would like this to be a quilt […]

A finish: Marquise Bedrunner

I thought you wouldn’t mind too much if I was late with the last BOM post This quilt was shoehorned into my schedule in February (teaser post here) in order to finish it in time for the current issue of Quilt Now. I only got some quick and dirty snaps before it went in the […]

English Country Garden BOM – Finishing the Quilt Top

By now you have 12 applique blocks, yes? No? They are all on Etsy, Payhip and Patterns to Print, but if you’re after the whole set to start at the beginning, keep your eyes out as it will be released some time in April in a format much cheaper than getting them individually and eventually […]

That’ll do, pig

I have a quicker-than-anticipated finish today! I need to make some class samples that I hadn’t accounted time for, plus even though I have the Easter weekend coming up in which I plan to sleep, sew and go to a comedy festival (and maybe do a bit of cleaning), I have designated it to finishing […]

Charmed Tote

This bag has been a long time in the making, though I’ve not actually told you anything about it. It started life as an idea to replicate a bag for OH’s aunt. She had one bought at some World festival or another which had braided leatherish handles and the handles made it wrinkle a bit […]

A finish: Octo Quilt

Churning out the finishes frantically over here- calm on the surface but kicking away frantically below the water like a duck! This is my Octo quilt and for a simple design it was a bit of a difficult birth. My iron was used away from home and on a makeshift mat which seemed to affect […]

Upcoming fabric I’m excited about

There are some amazing lines coming out soon, and it’s not even Quilt Market yet! Here’s some stuff I found for preorder on Etsy that I am excited about… (BTW all these pictures are pinched from Etsy but if you click the links they go straight to the shops selling these ranges by pre-order). Natural History […]

Some slightly different quilting

I took the big quilt off the machine momentarily- I’ve decided I need to quilt a dress panel a day to stay focused and on target for making my dress by the end of the month so this is what I’ve got so far- the front bodice! And the back makes it easier to see… […]
