Fancy & Fabulous Skirt

I’ve got a second finish amidst the chaos that is writing book and magazine stuff. Each time I make this skirt pattern I get a bit better at it; this time I am happier with the finish on the zip at the back. As with all the skirts I make, it has pockets- an essential […]

A finished quilt: Kananaskis

I finished the binding on a quick quilt a couple of days ago, so yesterday I took it out for photos. We went back to Elbow Falls; last time we visited, it was covered in snow. This time it was crazy hot and we brought Hank with us this time. I made this within a week […]

Shine Bright – My final finish for 2015, plus Project 48

It’s quilted and bound (and has been for about a week but I haven’t had the opportunity for photos until today)! Here is Shine Bright in all its glory! Now I guess I need to finish the pattern writing and get my first Quilt Workout pattern out there. While I was taking photos, this guy […]

Hello Chevron … And A Giveaway Winner

Well it’s quilted, bound and finally photographed. Here is Hello Chevron in completed glory! Three charm packs and a couple of years later, it’s all made up but I haven’t decided what to do with it yet, whether it will be a gift, if I’ll submit it to a magazine or put the pattern up […]

Another carpet bag

I’ve made another Companion Carpet bag! I’m not sure which I am going to keep of my three yet! This is the big one- 12″ frame. It’s not lopsided like it looks in this photo 🙂 Once again, the awesome pattern can be found HERE!

A finish! Chandelier Quilt

It seems I’m in quilting mode! Here is my latest finish: Chandelier. The back is half of an eBay beige checked Next duvet cover, the quilting glorified straight line quilting because of tension issues yet again, and the design is for Popular Patchwork magazine- soon! I cannot stress just how useful it is to have […]

My Companion Carpet Bags

I’ve completed my first two Companion Carpet Bags as part of the sew along. It’s the first time needing a screwdriver when sewing (for undoing the screws on the hinge) and the first time using headlining foam as a stabiliser. I liked both of these things! Here’s the first one which has some Cotton & […]

Another Finish: Hank, Frankly

So I actually just finished this, the big reveal is just in time for The Bloggers’ Quilt Festival! I was hoping to finish this for the day it started which was Friday, but you know how it is with life, grumpy sewing machines and such…. There’s something about curling up on the sofa with a glue […]

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 […]

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 […]
