I finished a thing!

My Hank-esque hanger on the stairway now has something hanging on it! I think the block is called Grandma’s Star and it uses just a few charm squares, I used Doe by Carolyn Friendlander and added the rest to my scrap drawers. The triangle at the bottom is a bit wonky but I’m trying to […]

Bloggers’ Quilt Festival – Mini Quilt!

Well what timing it is that the Bloggers’ Quilt Festival is back round again and I just so happen to have finished my Schnitzel and Boo mini quilt. The mini category calls for quilts that are 80″ or less all the way round. This is 20″ square so I just nailed it! To be honest […]

Housekeeping!

Still here, still sewing. The last few weeks I’ve been making something for Quilt Now, largely – but not exclusively – by hand… And also something for Popular Patchwork that has a bit that has something like this going on… And of course I’ve been working on my Schnitzel and Boo mini, the big reveal […]

Mini for Me

On Friday there was a gentle knock at the door just before 9pm. I generally don’t answer the door after tea time unless I’m expecting someone. We had G&Ts and the game Ticket To Ride all over the floor and guessed it was probably some election canvassing so we didn’t answer (and restrained Hank who was very […]

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 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Mini Quilt

An imaginative title there! I’ve finished the mini quilt for the Schnitzel and Boo mini quilt swap, here it is… It’s made with the quick curve ruler. I added some mini charms and some fabric as extras. There’s a sleeve on the back for wall hanging too. I’m posting it tomorrow and I’ll let you […]

TUTORIAL: Little Ducky Mini Quilt

I made this for a magazine but it didn’t get published so I thought you guys might want it instead… mine’s another addition to the mini quilt wall that hasn’t happened yet! This uses a special ruler from Creative Grids. A great video on how to use the ruler can be found on YouTube HERE. You […]
