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 […]

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 […]

Festive bear time

Merry Christmas everyone! I gifted the bear quilt to OH today! Here’s some photos I took earlier. The original photo by Stefano Unterthiner… The plan drawing… And some finished pics on the living room wall! I’ve managed to disguise where the-idiot-pup bit a bloody hole in it whilst I was sewing on the sleeve (as you […]

Francoise – part 1

May I introduce you to my new (almost finished) Francoise dress? The pattern is Francoise by Tilly and the Buttons, and I submitted it 10 minutes before the deadline for the competition last night. I am exhausted and I need to adjust the back. I also need an invisible zip foot and to redo the […]

Raglan top

Imaginative title, huh? I’ve finished sewing up a top with Art Gallery Knits – specifically one of the Priory Square ones, and Interlock Solids for the sleeves and trims, both from Village Haberdashery. The pattern is Hey June’s Lane Raglan, which was very clear and easy to follow. I made this up in a medium […]

Back on Track

My machine is back! It cost me nothing in the end, with Husqvarna’s kindly paying for my service. I’m not convinced it’s better, the tension still seems a bit off in FMQ mode and the cutter is still hit and miss at times. Still… It means that I’ve now finished my mini quilt for the […]

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 […]

Bloggers Quilt Festival – A New Finish!

That’s right folks, I finished something specifically for the Blogger’s Quilt Festival (the final binding stitches have just gone in!), and that something is my Diaspyros quilt! Diaspyros is the genus of the Persimmon fruit and its flowers are kinda this shape which is fortuitous! This is now going on to Bridget (editor of Popular Patchwork) […]

Finally, a summer finish reveal

I made two things this summer that I thought would be inconsiderate of me to show when I had actually finished them, but since this magazine is now arriving with subscribers (and in shops Tuesday)… I can show you my Kantha tote bag I used some of the Rustique range by Emily Herrick and obnoxiously […]
