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 […]

Weekender Weekend

I went away for the weekend to visit OH’s family and I took my completed Weekender with me! I’ve been working hard towards finishing computer based projects so I haven’t had much time for sewing this last few days, so it was nice to actually achieve a finish with the little time I did have. […]

My New Year’s Resolution

…is not so much a resolution, more of a target for the year. On my birthday I received a wonderful letter from the taxman saying I owe them quite a large sum of money and on top of that I’m getting fined an additional 15% plus interest. So I’m possibly going to have to look […]

Tutorial: Turned Edge Machine Appliqué

Here’s a little tutorial on how I put together my picture quilts. I decided to apply the same principle to my birds and berries quilt but just a couple of small motifs. This technique can be used for large or small scale stuff! I can’t show you this in full yet though- I’m 18″ of […]

Conversation Bag Tweaks

Have you seen the fantastic free pattern for the Conversation Bag over on Sew Sweetness?  I made one! It was also in the first issue of Modern Quilting which is where I worked from and where I saw it first and decided I MUST MAKE ONE. If you fancy making one too I thought I’d […]

Tutorial: Easy Peasy iPhone Pouch

I wanted to blog about a couple of things but they may have to remain secret. So I’ve broken my blog silence with a tutorial. I thought you might enjoy! My original measurements were well out- any idea what I could use a mini pouch like this for? It’s 11cm tall so it could hold […]

How do you like this pattern?

I’ve just been having a play with Electric Quilt 7 again and come up with a paper pieced block that looks like this… Which when made into a cushion panel will look like this- pretty! Once I’ve sewn one up I’m thinking of submitting it to a magazine as a pattern. But I can’t think of […]

Help me out and win your own pet quilt

I have absolutely no idea if this will work or how much people will get behind me, but I’m asking you to help me out, and I’ll give you something in return I confess, I have a weighty credit card bill that is on my shoulders every month and has been for years. Even though […]

Pattern testers wanted!

I’ve finally got my first pattern pretty much ready for release! This is High Flying Birds… I’m looking for a couple of people who might want to make a block- or even the whole quilt if they wish- from a new pattern that I’ve put together with the intention of selling it on Craftsy and […]

Free Paper Piecing Pattern: Daisy Star Block

I drew this up the other day on Electric Quilt. Of course it is unfinished, so the edges will meet the side points. It’s actually quite an easy block to do and consists of four pieces. There are loads of tutorials on the internet for how to paper piece so I’m not even going to attempt […]
