It’s a Scraptastic Tuesday!

I made progress on an old WIP I’ve not touched in a year- YEAH! My scrappy log cabin quilt needed 64 blocks to be completed and I had made 46 of them and stopped, packed up and moved country. So I’ve been making the remaining 18 in the evenings when Alex has been working. I […]

Another top finish

I thought this day would never come, the Hello Chevron quilt I’ve been working on – or not working on – for over two years is now pieced! And stupidly it only took me just over an hour to get it finished, I don’t know what my problem was. I even made the backing this […]

Shine Bright: Preview Part VI

The piecing of the top is finished! I’ve given it a good press but as is the way with Autumn, it’s dark outside and my photos are cruddy. I’m going to longarm it myself, I’m just finalising when I can hire a machine, but hopefully in the next fortnight and then I can get proper […]

Chandelier – A Quilt Top

This weekend has been very productive for sewing, what with all of the rain and Alex being at work for two of the three days. On Saturday I finished day 2 of the Companion Carpet Bag sew along on both bags and on Sunday¬†I finished sewing this quilt top: The fabrics are Chandelier by Studio […]

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 […]

Diospyros quilt top

I’ve been working with a Basic Grey Persimmon jelly roll¬†lately and have finally finished the top, ready for basting on my favourite extra large floor this weekend (once I have sorted the backing of course). I’ve not yet decided on a quilt pattern, but I’m thinking something nature-y, like maybe some vines and leaves, and […]

Sad times

Well not totally sad, good news first. I finished this top and got the tutorial commissioned! Bad news: My camera lens is broken around the 50mm mark. Apparently it thinks this is in focus… I know why it’s doing this- I dropped it earlier in the week. I’m sad because it’s quite an old camera, […]

A flimsy finish

I managed to do quite a lot of sewing this weekend, and that’s not including the guild meeting where I worked on Hello Chevron (duty bound). Despite the omnipotent puppy I finished piecing the lone star-esque quilt top this afternoon. I am still rubbish at Y seams, but it works and my points are mostly […]

A quilt with legs

Parquetry top is all done, with my holiday very soon though I don’t think I will finish the whole thing in time for the Lovely Year of Finishes goal- just where is October going?! So instead of sewing I used my little bit of morning time cutting 2 1/2″ squares out of my overflowing scraps […]

Another top finished – Picnic Path

You know how I mentioned I was working on another quilt top which would be finished about the same time as the Forest QAL would be completely finished? Well here it is, it’s made from PB&J (love that line) and I’ve called it Picnic Path… I now have two bee tops and this in my […]
