WIP Wednesday

You know how I have a BOM design to do, an appliqué bear quilt, a pixel quilt and a magazine project (not to mention an untouched Finish Along list) I’m working on, or SHOULD be working on? I’ve also got a 100-180 page manual I’m working on on the side for holiday spending money (one […]

What do you think?

OK so I have three projects on the go right now, only one of which you have actually seen. And then I want to make OH the bear quilt. I’ve been thinking though, I would kinda like to make another pixel quilt. OH says I should go for smaller pixels so I am thinking 3/4″ […]

Bloghop thing

Ruth asked me to take part in the Around the World blog hop. I don’t normally like these things but seeing as I like her, here are my answers… 1. What am I working on? I’ve done absolutely nothing on my Finish Along list, so I guess I’m not working on any of THAT, but […]

Hundreds and Thousands finish and Giveaway winner

Another finish! This quilt is made with a confetti technique of slicing a bunch of scraps to hell and then catching them in a net of tulle.

Festival of Quilts round up

I have such sore feet! My camera ran out of juice halfway round, but these are some of the quilts that caught my eye. My judge’s comments were good cop bad cop again- one gave me two ‘excellents’, one gave me two ‘satisfactory’s and told me to think about the colour of thread I used- err […]

I don’t get it!

The lovely Reene has tagged me on photos coming up on Instagram of my David Bowie quilt, there are four (1, 2, 3, 4) so far not from people I know which means that people actually like it or something! I don’t understand, the quilting is really awful after my machine malfunction and I maintain […]
