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 […]

A Finish : Thumbtacks

… Because the British term “Drawing Pins” doesn’t really work as a title I don’t think! Here it is… I made it using a semi-stack and whack technique, because I realised that triangles really need the extra seam allowance to piece back together again! This will be for Popular Patchwork in the summer. I’m working […]

A finish: Ornament

Urgghhh Instagram is being such a pain! It keeps crashing when I try to upload and it’s been like this for a week. I’ve reinstalled the app and restarted the phone so many times! And no reply from Instagram tech help. Anyway… This quilt was made around the same time as S is for Snake […]

A Finish: Crosswalks

Here is my latest finish: Crosswalks. It took ages to put this together, and I have lots of other stuff I should have been doing! I started it right around when I finished up my last quilt for the book because I just needed to get back to normal piecing. Looking back on Instagram I […]

A Finish – S is for Snake

I don’t think I could really show this before, but now it is in print, this is my S is for Snake quilt! It’s just baby quilt size and it’s in the current issue (27) of Quilt Now. It’s another quilt I put together using the Scan N Cut to cut out my Drunkard’s Path […]

Hello Chevron … And A Giveaway Winner

Well it’s quilted, bound and finally photographed. Here is Hello Chevron in completed glory! Three charm packs and a couple of years later, it’s all made up but I haven’t decided what to do with it yet, whether it will be a gift, if I’ll submit it to a magazine or put the pattern up […]

A finish! Chandelier Quilt

It seems I’m in quilting mode! Here is my latest finish: Chandelier. The back is half of an eBay beige checked Next duvet cover, the quilting glorified straight line quilting because of tension issues yet again, and the design is for Popular Patchwork magazine- soon! I cannot stress just how useful it is to have […]

Shine Bright: Preview Part II

Time to show you the next stage of the pattern that I hope to put on sale in the Autumn as part of a new series of fat quarter friendly patterns I’m coining Quilt Workout, which are designed for intermediate quilters to practise their skills in different areas of patchwork to build up to the […]

Another Finish: Hank, Frankly

So I actually just finished this, the big reveal is just in time for┬áThe Bloggers’ Quilt Festival! I was hoping to finish this for the day it started which was Friday, but you know how it is with life, grumpy sewing machines and such…. There’s something about curling up on the sofa with a glue […]

A finish: Octo Quilt

Churning out the finishes frantically over here- calm on the surface but kicking away frantically below the water like a duck! This is my Octo quilt and for a simple design it was a bit of a difficult birth. My iron was used away from home and on a makeshift mat which seemed to affect […]
