Giveaway winner and curves…

I’ve started on my Pancakes quilt and actually I’m quite enjoying sewing the curves. Sadly I have something else I need to do before I devote my time to this 100%. They’re not perfect, but they’re not scary either. The cutting is great too, I’ve been drawing with templates and cutting out with scissors in […]

Transparency

Introducing my first finished proper quilt for 2015, this is Transparency. With rubbish photos because I don’t get to see the sun this time of the year. The idea is that it’s a simpler reloaded Card Trick Block rotated 45 degrees. The four translucent “cards” overlap and show through the colours that would be produced […]

Stash, oh dear

I think I’m going to be an unofficial member of the Sew My Stash collective this year. From what was 100 cards, I now have 200 cards of 1/4-2 yard pieces, plus a big stack I accumulated during the January sales… Not to mention the FQ bundles I still have left, though mercifully I am […]

Giveaway from Fancy Moon!

How would you like to win a voucher for £25 from Fancy Moon?! This is the swag I received this week and is an example of what £25 can get you-  2 1/4 yards of fabric! At the minute the clearance section (where I made my budget stretch a little further) has dress fabric, quilting fabric, designers […]

Marking quilts for quilting

It’s no secret that I’ve been wary of the Frixion pens that a lot of people rave about. Just after Christmas, I bought a couple of colours from Paperchase and tried them out. They worked great; the lines went white and only vanished completely when well pressed but that was fine. I then tested my fabric […]

My book list 2015

A new year, a new book list for me. I’m not sure if you will have noticed it much, but I’ve been updating a page on my blog for over a year now with the books I have read, along with links to buy them if you so wish. This is a mixture of fiction, […]

Horseplay cushion

So after showing you a tiny picture of the cushion in Quilt Now, Sara thankfully reminded me that I hadn’t blogged about it at all (I’m so used to magazines where I feel I can reveal all before publication, then I don’t forget)! This is my large feature cushion called Horseplay (named by OH). I […]

A quilt with no name

I couldn’t think of a name for this mini, but I don’t really need to as it’s going to be flying outta here tomorrow to my Schnitzel and Boo swap partner, just got to get some edibles for the package! The quilting is just messing about with a few decorative stitches. I seem to remember […]

Big up!

A “big up” for myself that is. I have a project on the cover of Popular Patchwork this month, yep that’s my Diaspyros quilt from late last year. And also I’m just sneaking in on the cover of Quilt Now with my Horseplay Cushion. Scarily I have nothing else in the immediate pipeline for magazines […]

My 2015 Q1 Finish Along Goals {plus linky giveaway winner}

Happy New Year folks, I’ve got quite a bit on my plate this year quilty-wise so once more I am going to link up with the Finish Along (now hosted by Adrianne) for a fourth year! This isn’t everything, but I have that many WIPs in stages, I’m going to be realistic with what I […]
