Fancy & Fabulous Skirt

I’ve got a second finish amidst the chaos that is writing book and magazine stuff. Each time I make this skirt pattern I get a bit better at it; this time I am happier with the finish on the zip at the back. As with all the skirts I make, it has pockets- an essential […]

I finished a thing!

My Hank-esque hanger on the stairway now has something hanging on it! I think the block is called Grandma’s Star and it uses just a few charm squares, I used Doe by Carolyn Friendlander and added the rest to my scrap drawers. The triangle at the bottom is a bit wonky but I’m trying to […]

Finish Along – Quarter 2

It’s Finish Along time again and I’m sort of taking part this quarter. As I work on my book I plan to do a bit of other stuff in between projects, so finish a book thing, work on another project, finish a book thing, work on another project, you get the idea. My other projects […]

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 […]

Q4- Goals for the last quarter in 2015’s Finish Along

Oh wow it’s the last quarter people! I only actually finished one thing last quarter (from the list anyway), but the threat of moving to Canada is getting ever closer so I need to make more of an effort because I want to start with a blank slate- and a new machine. Come Q1 of […]

A finish! Left A-Lone Star

I’ve not thought of a new name for this yet, despite intending to! Suggestions are welcomed. The piecing was finished 15 months ago. This is a bit of an embarrassment for me as I like to get stuff done quick, but I stalled at how to quilt it, and even when I doodled and got […]

Q3 – Lets do this. (Finish Along Goals)

Time to get real and deal with this stuff. In light of our big move, we’ve had to declare what we are taking with us for customs purposes well in advance (like last week when we officially activated our status on holiday even though we’re here for some time yet). I have formally declared these […]

A Finish: Hadley Doughnuts

My Hadley quilt plan became a large cushion. It just felt right not to make too many of these, and the fact I got to stash most of the fabrics again had absolutely nothing to do with it of course… The background is Kona Natural I think, and it uses a mixture of techniques. Firstly, […]

Another Finish: Hank, Frankly

So I actually just finished this, the big reveal is just in time for The Bloggers’ Quilt Festival! I was hoping to finish this for the day it started which was Friday, but you know how it is with life, grumpy sewing machines and such…. There’s something about curling up on the sofa with a glue […]

Q2 Finish Along Goals

Well I didn’t do that great last quarter – I finished two of four projects and made a ton of new stuff instead. Naturally then, two of these projects roll over into quarter two’s finish along. Firstly the Hadley doughnuts are as I left them- one partial block. I would like this to be a quilt […]
