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 […]

A Finish: Banana Candy

This is Banana Candy all done! It’s all raw edge applique, appliqued onto Kona Parchment at the quilting stage. That is pretty much how I roll with applique always, whether turned edge or raw. It makes choosing a quilting design really simple too. I stitched around the very edge with matching colour thread, then echo […]

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 […]

A finish: A Horse With No Name

Hello…. it’s me…. (read Adele-style) I’ve had some big things going on that I’ll probably talk about when I have found a solution, but it’s put me off sewing a bit. I’ve been designing a few Spoonflower fabrics since I’ve been selling some designs (!) so I want to build up my library, and I’ve […]

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 […]

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 […]

A finish: Marquise Bedrunner

I thought you wouldn’t mind too much if I was late with the last BOM post 😉 This quilt was shoehorned into my schedule in February (teaser post here) in order to finish it in time for the current issue of Quilt Now. I only got some quick and dirty snaps before it went in […]

Christmas Sprouts – another quilt finish

Quilt Now issue 4 is finally out and that means I can now reveal the Christmas quilt I was working on back in July. What is more festive than Brussels Sprouts? And of course this quilt is in Basic Grey fabric. I forgot that in my post yesterday so it’s a double bill of Basic Grey […]

Bloggers Quilt Festival – A New Finish!

That’s right folks, I finished something specifically for the Blogger’s Quilt Festival (the final binding stitches have just gone in!), and that something is my Diaspyros quilt! Diaspyros is the genus of the Persimmon fruit and its flowers are kinda this shape which is fortuitous! This is now going on to Bridget (editor of Popular Patchwork) […]

The first finish of 2014!

I was too impatient to wait a day longer for daylight, so here it is, the finished Giant Churn Dash quilt! I used a lot of the charm squares from the LV swap from before Christmas but still have a lot left over. I think I have this out of my system now, so if […]
