2018 Finish Along Q1 – Goals

Does anyone¬†visit this blog anymore? I’m going to continue anyway, It’s a good record for me to look back on, but I’m not sure if anyone else is here. I’ve had some issues with it being hacked, and maybe that’s why. Good news though, a new site is on the way imminently! I was going […]

A final Finish Along contribution – the reupholstered chairs!

Happy New Year! I really didn’t want to take out all those staples and fight with the crappy paint again, but I did. New Year’s Day was the day for me, so still technically sneaking it in before the cut off for the 2017 Finish Along! While Alex watched Rogue One and Hank had peanut […]

A Finish: Paraffin

This quilt is Paraffin, and it was designed to look like a lava lamp. I learned about how they work while making this quilt – that carbon tetrachloride is added to the paraffin to make it denser than water, where wax would normally float. The bulb heats the wax and makes it expand, making it […]

2017 Finish Along – time for Q4… and Vlog #15 October 1st.

The end (of the year) is nigh! So what do I want to achieve by December 31st? I’m not including Banana Candy here because that quilt despite being on my last quarter list is only a couple of hours from being finished, so I feel like I’d be cheating a bit. It has fallen in […]

A Finish: Bear in the Log Cabin (for Bloggers Quilt Festival)

It’s Blogger’s Quilt Festival time again, and I love how Amy has simplified it. Previously you had to choose a category for a quilt that you entered, and then people would nominate and vote for a People’s Choice, which didn’t always seem like the fairest way of doing it- though I was¬†surprised to be nominated […]

Finish Along Q3

Ooh I almost forgot about the finish along for what would have been almost the entire year, but sneaking in under the deadline to share the WIPs I have that are most realistically going to be finished this quarter. There are more, but I think four is enough. This is Bear in the Log Cabin […]

A Finish – the yellow dress

I find it difficult to be completely satisfied with garment making but I refuse to make a muslin because of the extra time and money; maybe I need to decide which is most important! So this dress is finished, not without issue, though I finally understood how vents work and I learned to make a […]

The Finish Along is back – Q1 2017

I’m not expecting to get many WIPs finished this quarter, but as usual, I’m going to give it a go, and suggest three things that could possibly get done, or at least develop a bit further! This dress still hasn’t got any further since last quarter, it’s time I got that done. Another no-changer – […]

Submitting to Quiltcon

At the very last minute I submitted some quilts for Quiltcon 2017. I was a recipient of a Michael Miller challenge bundle, so I was obliged to get my act together and send it in. I finished it on the weekend and then forgot the bit where you take photos…. When I got to the […]

Finish Along 2016 Q4

It’s a cliche, but this year has flown by. It’s the last quarter of the Finish Along already! I’ve booked to do a craft fair and thinking about booking another, so my list is largely so I have stuff to display and sell, and I need to finish these fast. I have things I want […]
