PennyDog Vlog #1 – May 27th 2017

A new thing I’m trying out, sometimes it’s easier and more honest on a one take iPhone video, than an edited, curated blog post…. Maybe I’ll do it once a week if people don’t think this is too weird! Oh and maybe I’ll brush my hair next time…

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 […]

Brother Scan N Cut – Adding seam allowances and cutting fabric for piecing tutorial

The Meadow quilt class last week was awesome, but the cutting for the pattern is a bit laborious. There are 80 shapes that have two curves, and 40 pieces that are sort of like a smoother version of the Star Trek logo. There will also be 20 long ovals but I think they will be […]

English Country Garden BOM – Finishing the Quilt Top

By now you have 12 applique blocks, yes? No? They are all on Etsy, Payhip and Patterns to Print, but if you’re after the whole set to start at the beginning, keep your eyes out as it will be released some time in April in a format much cheaper than getting them individually and eventually […]

Charmed Tote

This bag has been a long time in the making, though I’ve not actually told you anything about it. It started life as an idea to replicate a bag for OH’s aunt. She had one bought at some World festival or another which had braided leatherish handles and the handles made it wrinkle a bit […]

Mysterious close-ups

I’m in danger of not blogging over the next week or so while I finish a last minute project and it would be unsporting of me to reveal it just yet. So here’s some mysterious close ups of the fabrics and shapes in the top I’ve been working on this past week and a bit…. It’s […]

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 […]

English Country Garden BOM – Block 8 – Poppy

Sorry for the delay folks, here’s the brand new Poppy block as promised – eventually. This one is a bit easier than the last couple to give you a litle bit of reprieve and it’s a checkerboard background again. The poppy is pretty apt for November so it seemed right to schedule that in this month. […]

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 […]

Me me me

And more me… I just got my subscription copy of Popular Patchwork, which is in newsagents next Friday and there’s another of my quilt patterns in there- that’s right, I finally finished writing up Wallander! It’s a good one because they used my photos too which is a bit of a confidence boost. And the […]
