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.

Mysterious close-ups

I’m in danger of not blogging over the next week or so while I finish a last minute project and it would be unsporting of me to reveal it just yet. So here’s some mysterious close ups of the fabrics and shapes in the top I’ve been working on this past week and a bit…. It’s […]

Giveaway winner and curves…

I’ve started on my Pancakes quilt and actually I’m quite enjoying sewing the curves. Sadly I have something else I need to do before I devote my time to this 100%. They’re not perfect, but they’re not scary either. The cutting is great too, I’ve been drawing with templates and cutting out with scissors in […]

My 2015 Q1 Finish Along Goals {plus linky giveaway winner}

Happy New Year folks, I’ve got quite a bit on my plate this year quilty-wise so once more I am going to link up with the Finish Along (now hosted by Adrianne) for a fourth year! This isn’t everything, but I have that many WIPs in stages, I’m going to be realistic with what I […]

Gigglish Allsorts

This post has absolutely nothing to do with the kids TV programme from the 90s. A bit of housekeeping. There’s three projects on the list to complete before Christmas and as of last night, that list is now two. I finished off this Sew Together bag so now I have two for gifting. My remaining […]

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 […]

The macaroni effect

I’ve started on the bear quilt and I’m very glad I have… There’s something very enjoyable about the cut, stick, repeat way these quilts come together. There’s no sewing and I can be more sociable- I can do batches in front of the TV rather than out in my sewing room all night. It’s exactly […]

WIP Wednesday – the handsewing edition

My machine went into the shop for a little fine tuning this weekend, nothing serious, just a couple of niggles I wanted looking at before my warranty is over. I hope to have it back this weekend but I’ve not heard anything yet. Fingers crossed…. Anyway, this has limited what I can work on, and […]
