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 […]

A finish: Octo Quilt

Churning out the finishes frantically over here- calm on the surface but kicking away frantically below the water like a duck! This is my Octo quilt and for a simple design it was a bit of a difficult birth. My iron was used away from home and on a makeshift mat which seemed to affect […]

A finish: Pancakes quilt

If you think I’ve not been posting much lately, it’s because I’ve been busy! I took Friday off work to give some serious hours this weekend to my two simultaneous quilt projects going on and I finished one of them! This is Pancakes (though you’ve possibly seen me overgram the stages on Instagram)…! I am […]

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 […]
