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 […]

Hundreds and Thousands finish and Giveaway winner

Another finish! This quilt is made with a confetti technique of slicing a bunch of scraps to hell and then catching them in a net of tulle. I’ve called it Hundreds and Thousands because the little slices look like cake sprinkles. It’s wall hanging size so I’ve popped a sleeve on the back. Once it’s […]

Ziggy / Bowie – another sneaky finish

I’m not sure I like this quilt still but it has been improved since the top finish. I think the face looks wonky? I took off some excess in the end and pieced a back with a rainbow effect. Cindy suggested if I didn’t like it maybe I should add some colour to define the lightning […]

A finish: Washi Tape Quilt

Ooh that was quite a big pause in posts for me! I have been doing quite a bit, and have a finish to post up today, albeit not one from my finish along list…. Still got to finish the things that pay the bills first, right? So here is my Washi Tape quilt… I forgot […]

Sausage Puppy

Our neighbours from next door but one have been checking in with Hank for the last three weeks whilst we have been at work. The penultimate day was particularly eventful after I let him have a pigs trotter the day before. We had been paying them but I wanted to give them a gift. Apparently […]

Something fishy!

In less than a week I made this fish bowl mini quilt- it’s 26″ square and uses the reverse applique/portholes/ faced edges technique of applique. Here’s the back… it’s improv with a piece of Munki Munki Heather Ross as the starting point. Some of these fabrics were from my stash, others were from other people […]

Progress this weekend

On Friday morning I made this little guy for a package I put together for a little girl that’s just become a big sister. The pattern is from the current issue of Love Patchwork and Quilting. Whilst I rarely make things from magazines (I just tend to read the articles), this was very tempting as […]

Yucky

I’ve been yucky and ill the last few days, but then it appears so has EVERYONE in the UK, I’m sure there’s a secret pandemic. So whilst my brain decided to go doolally, making my body ache and me sleep a stupid amount (coinciding with a mild allergic reaction to a hypoallergenic hair dye and […]
