A Finish: Connecting 4

Sigh. I missed the Finish Along link up again because I’ve been busy at work (this is a good thing but it means I’ve been going to bed earlier), have been teaching and trying to get on top of housework and stuff at home. I also decided today after an incident on Friday where I […]

A Finish : Thumbtacks

… Because the British term “Drawing Pins” doesn’t really work as a title I don’t think! Here it is… I made it using a semi-stack and whack technique, because I realised that triangles really need the extra seam allowance to piece back together again! This will be for Popular Patchwork in the summer. I’m working […]

A Finish – the yellow dress

I find it difficult to be completely satisfied with garment making but I refuse to make a muslin because of the extra time and money; maybe I need to decide which is most important! So this dress is finished, not without issue, though I finally understood how vents work and I learned to make a […]

A finish: Ornament

Urgghhh Instagram is being such a pain! It keeps crashing when I try to upload and it’s been like this for a week. I’ve reinstalled the app and restarted the phone so many times! And no reply from Instagram tech help. Anyway… This quilt was made around the same time as S is for Snake […]

Submitting to Quiltcon

At the very last minute I submitted some quilts for Quiltcon 2017. I was a recipient of a Michael Miller challenge bundle, so I was obliged to get my act together and send it in. I finished it on the weekend and then forgot the bit where you take photos…. When I got to the […]

A Finish: Crosswalks

Here is my latest finish: Crosswalks. It took ages to put this together, and I have lots of other stuff I should have been doing! I started it right around when I finished up my last quilt for the book because I just needed to get back to normal piecing. Looking back on Instagram I […]

A Finish – S is for Snake

I don’t think I could really show this before, but now it is in print, this is my S is for Snake quilt! It’s just baby quilt size and it’s in the current issue (27) of Quilt Now. It’s another quilt I put together using the Scan N Cut to cut out my Drunkard’s Path […]

Finished! My Lizzy House Meadow Quilt

So it only took three weeks after finishing this quilt to actually photograph it and post about it…. This is my Q3 Finish Along finish, the pattern is Lizzy House’s exclusive Meadow quilt pattern that she only teaches in class (because the pattern is open to some interpretation and personal influence which in turn can […]

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 […]
