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. Totally unexpected and amazing as there were some really good entries. As a result I won a stash download pack and a great book from Electric Quilt, […]

A Finish – Round Trip Dress

I finished this dress from my list of many garments a week or so ago, but can show you it now as it’s the second day of Quilt Market, and the fabric it is made from will have been seen by buyers yesterday on the BasicGrey booth as part of the Moda showcase, so I’m not […]

Trying something new

No not another sewing project! I’ve turned my hand to a bit of article writing instead of always making projects for magazines. I have another in the queue and one being written (albeit incredibly slowly), but on Friday my very first one will be out! I’m a subscriber to Popular Patchwork so I get my […]

Christmas Sprouts – another quilt finish

Quilt Now issue 4 is finally out and that means I can now reveal the Christmas quilt I was working on back in July. What is more festive than Brussels Sprouts? And of course this quilt is in Basic Grey fabric. I forgot that in my post yesterday so it’s a double bill of Basic Grey […]

Diospyros quilt top

I’ve been working with a Basic Grey Persimmon jelly roll lately and have finally finished the top, ready for basting on my favourite extra large floor this weekend (once I have sorted the backing of course). I’ve not yet decided on a quilt pattern, but I’m thinking something nature-y, like maybe some vines and leaves, and […]

Picnic Path Quilt – finished

This quilt is flying off to America very very soon so I’m not going to have any daylight hours to photograph it in, so these pics will have to do, folks! STATS Size – 48″ x 60″ Number of blocks – 15 rows (rather than blocks) Time to piece – About 3 hours Time to […]

Another top finished – Picnic Path

You know how I mentioned I was working on another quilt top which would be finished about the same time as the Forest QAL would be completely finished? Well here it is, it’s made from PB&J (love that line) and I’ve called it Picnic Path… I now have two bee tops and this in my […]

I’m shortlisted!

I’m shortlisted for the Penny and Fletcher quilt in the Art Quilt category in the Bloggers’ Quilt Festival! I won’t show you it yet again (snore) but I will point you over to where to go and vote, and I hope you will vote for me. There’s some fantastic entries in all of the other […]

Roll up! Roll up! Basic Grey roll up swap!

Inspired by the various charm square swaps around this Autumn, I was wondering if anyone wants to play in a mini Basic Grey Roll-up (Jelly Roll) swap? I always seem to veer towards Basic Grey’s collections for Moda… Love that design house- a retro-y feel but contemporary all at the same time. I think I […]

If you’re fond of sand dunes and salty air….

I am super mega chuffed- I have Basic Grey’s Salt Air before it has properly arrived over on the shores of the UK and it’s minnnnnnne and I love it. Seriously, this is my favourite ever fabric collection and I loved Curio (I’m a massive Basic Grey fan- remember the footstool in the last post? […]
