Time for a little octopus…

I’ve only got enough wadding for one quilt at the moment and that will be the pancakes quilt when I baste it on the weekend on the big floor. I’ve therefore put the dress on pause just briefly (while I get over the bit of panic that I am actually making this) before getting some more […]

The beginnings of a dress…

Patchwork pieces- blurry pictures- check… Patch pockets, check… My dress is (almost) ready for quilting! I’ve got lining fabric coming imminently- it’s fuchsia pink, I thought it might be nice to have something a bit zingy as this dress is hardly going to be shy!

Quilt top finished

The top for Pancakes is all pieced, ready for basting this weekend… Wait a minute… My progress for Quilt and Stitch Village is going pretty well, I’ve also got a dress in process too, I’ll show you that tomorrow.

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 […]

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 […]

I get to start something new!

If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen this picture a few weekends ago… Well the design has been commissioned and the plan is a quilt that is 84″ square from 16 of these “Card Trick Reloaded” blocks. It’s going to be largely solids, but I have a nice new blade and I’ve […]

Hundreds and Thousands finish and Giveaway winner

Another finish! This quilt is made with a confetti technique of slicing a bunch of scraps to hell and then catching them in a net of tulle. I’ve called it Hundreds and Thousands because the little slices look like cake sprinkles. It’s wall hanging size so I’ve popped a sleeve on the back. Once it’s […]

Billy Bass Mini Quilt (Sewvivor round 1) – plus a tutorial on adding sound to quilts

Ta da! Here’s my round one entry for the Nautical theme- a turned edge applique Billy Bass quilt. And I added sound too! And a video to show that it works… *** STATS Size – 18″ x 11″ Number of blocks – n/a Time to make– 4 hours not including component-related thinking time Fabric – Scraps, including a […]

Ziggy / Bowie – another sneaky finish

I’m not sure I like this quilt still but it has been improved since the top finish. I think the face looks wonky? I took off some excess in the end and pieced a back with a rainbow effect. Cindy suggested if I didn’t like it maybe I should add some colour to define the lightning […]
