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…

New pattern available!

I’ve recently published the Pancakes pattern over on Craftsy. If you’re interested, it is $6USD. This marks the start of me trying to put myself out there more! 🙂

Shine Bright – My final finish for 2015, plus Project 48

It’s quilted and bound (and has been for about a week but I haven’t had the opportunity for photos until today)! Here is Shine Bright in all its glory! Now I guess I need to finish the pattern writing and get my first Quilt Workout pattern out there. While I was taking photos, this guy […]

Some slightly different quilting

I took the big quilt off the machine momentarily- I’ve decided I need to quilt a dress panel a day to stay focused and on target for making my dress by the end of the month so this is what I’ve got so far- the front bodice! And the back makes it easier to see… […]

What I’m doing right now…

Just keep quilting…. Straight lines are so boring to quilt. Looking forward to crossing something else off my list though. I allowed myself some time yesterday evening to cut out the pieces for my next couple of mini quilts that I will sew simultaneously, with one for the UK mini swap. Some times I find straight line […]

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 […]

Big up!

A “big up” for myself that is. I have a project on the cover of Popular Patchwork this month, yep that’s my Diaspyros quilt from late last year. And also I’m just sneaking in on the cover of Quilt Now with my Horseplay Cushion. Scarily I have nothing else in the immediate pipeline for magazines […]

Having a doodle

I’ve decided to move onto quilting my neglected Lone Star quilt (btw any suggestions for names?) – it’s been sat on top of my shelves for a couple of months now since I basted it. I printed off a photo of the finished top and had a doodle… Other than the bubbles (I hate doing […]

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 […]

Plugity plug

I’ve got a few publications going on at the moment. I’ve another to come but I haven’t seen it yet so don’t want to be presumptuous. First off, the current issue of Popular Patchwork is a bag special, and my bag is on the cover… And looking at the inside page, my giant churn dash […]
