Holy Cow!

Hank, Frankly is on the shortlist for the Bloggers’ Quilt Festival! I am so so excited, please go vote for me! Thank you to the person (people?) who nominated me! He’s also in the Art Quilt category if you fancy giving me one of your clicks there too, you can vote for three in each, […]

Stuff from market

I didn’t go to Quilt Market, however I lived and breathed it through Instagram many times a day over the weekend. For me these are the highlights and the must haves! Of the Cotton + Steel collections, I think Melody Miller’s Picnic Play is my favourite. I like the plastic flower print and the apples. […]

Check this out…

Sam (Handmade by Mrs H) has a great selection of bag patterns, and the latest is a collaboration with yours truly! The Sunburst Clutch features a scalloped, paper piece flap design, and the cover bag has an (optional!) gold pleather body which gives it a bit of a 70s Disco feel. If you’ve never made […]

My design at Quilt Market!

Let me tell you a story… I designed a block earlier in the year which won me first prize in the EQ7 competition in February using BasicGrey’s Fresh Cut line.

Come pixel with me?

This week I finished up a class sample… And on Saturday 6th June I will be teaching pixel quilting using this block as the example project which finishes at a nice size to make into a cushion or a mini quilt. Even though there are 361 squares, there are only 71 seams to sew. Intrigued? […]

I must be honest and say that not many things caught my eye this year, so I really do hope more people enter next year, even if that does mean more competition for me! The show is only three years old so it’s a shame that there are less quilts this time round. Still as usual, […]
