Loving it

I shipped off the last requirements for my book today, and emailed over all of the images and second draft copy yesterday. Whilst I have enjoyed the process and would do it all over again, its so liberating to be working on a completely different style again. I treated myself to start a new project […]

Selvedge Salvage

Today I learned that what I call a selvedge is the British spelling of selvage. I wondered why I had seen it written in two different forms. I’ve collected selvedges for a while now, maybe a couple of years. When I was in the UK I’d pass them to Di in our EMMQG meetings, but […]

Plans

It’s so frustrating that I can’t share pretty much all the projects I’ve worked on over the last six months or more! I only have six quilts to show for 2016 on the Finished page, and that’s entirely untrue. There’s four more (if you include a three piece quilt) I’ve not been able to show. […]

Check!

Two things checked off the really long to do list. Firstly, today I submitted my first draft of my book! By submitted, I mean that I am currently 16% of the way into the uploading process. It’s almost 3gb of stuff so it’s taking a while. Secondly, I finally got super patient Simone’s bee block […]

Bee Blocks and Quilt Workout and Canada

Quilt Workout is (finally) go! The first pattern – Shine Bright – is now available on Craftsy and walks through each round on this semi-medallion quilt which can be made with a bunch of fat quarters and a co-ordinating solid. It is priced at just $7 USD and there’s some other patterns in my Craftsy […]

My new sewing room and a round up

I’ve moved into a new house and a few days ago our stuff all arrived! So after a few days of hard work, my sewing room now looks like this… I’ve done another design for a magazine which I need to sew up soon, but at the moment my project on the wall is Lotus by Jaybird […]
