PennyDog Vlog #4 – July 1st 2017

I missed last week due to work, outdoor activities and general sickness, but I’m back to briefly share what I’ve been up to this week. I think it might be a little bit out of focus- well I am, the fabric, etc not so much – so I plan to invest in an actual video […]

PennyDog Vlog #2 – June 3rd 2017

Working away on the Antique Shop Floor quilt, and some fabrics I bought but I hope some of you can help me decide what to do with the swatches, and share any walking foot tips with me since mine is looking wonky! The sound isn’t as good as when I used the iPhone, maybe I’ll […]

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 […]
