2018: Year in Review from 3and3quarters

Thinking back on last year, I immediately frown and wonder just what it was I actually did during the year that could hold some significance for me.

At first I was all like, ‘nahh. Nothing happened that could really hold up in a blog post, detailing my life in and around my sewing room!’

But then a simple scroll through my Instagram and all of a suddenly I have a hurried, messy scribble of a list detailing all of the wonderful events and creative pursuits I managed to fit into the year!

So, listing in chronological order, let’s review ...

MINI BLOCK QAL | Block #8: Cake Stand from 3and3quarters


Can you believe it?!

We’re slowly getting to the pointy-end of the series with our second-to-last block to make!

Today’s block is another one of those traditional types that I’ve always wanted to make but just have never got around to doing it! Not anymore though! This sweet delicious little block is called Cake Stand and is sooo scrumptious and lovely, I just want to make a whole quilt out of it!

As I was coming up to the colour ‘brown’ in my own theme for this QAL, I just had to combine ...

MINI BLOCK QAL | Block #7: Dollhouse from 3and3quarters


Who’s ready for block seven?!

On our slow descent to the final stages of this QAL, block seven is a real cutie!

This one is called Dollhouse (can also be called: Mini House or Little House) and features an array of many squares and rectangles. To add a bit of character to my block, I’ve added a red door (I’ve always wanted to have a real house with a red door!!) as well as a grey-scaled print to act like curtains for the windows.

In this tutorial, I break down the block into ...

MINI BLOCK QAL | Block #6: Single Irish Chain from 3and3quarters


After a few weeks between drinks, so to speak, we’re back to it and ready to plunge into Block 6 of our Mini Block QAL!

This time around, we’re making the Single Irish Chain.

FUN FACT! I’ve never made this block before until now. I’ve seen bigger versions of it here and there on many social media places and a quilt made entirely out of this block is just simply gorgeous! I’ve definitely added it to my ‘Quilts-To-Make-One-Day-When-I’ve-Got-Nothing-Else-To-Do’ list! </p>

MINI BLOCK QAL | Block #5: Crossed Tile from 3and3quarters


Well here we are, five blocks in and still having a hoot of a time! (At least I think we are, yeh?)

I love this simple little block. It’s another super quick and easy one to whizz together and has the potential to be as fun and crazy as you wish it to be!

My best advice when pulling fabrics for this block would be to choose those that are contrasting from one another. That way, you’ll end up with a block where the design really pops and you can distinguish the unique ‘cross ...

MINI BLOCK QAL | Block #4: Cain & Abel from 3and3quarters


After navigating through winter colds, endless days/weeks at work and my terrible habit of procrastinating, block four is finally here!


It may look tricky on the outside but once you delve into what makes this block tick, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by just how simple it actually is to piece together!

The only real ‘tricky’ bit to this one are the sizes of the pieces that make up the block. (But hey, that’s the whole point to this series isn’t it? Challenging our abilities to make gorgeous mini blocks out of ...

MINI BLOCK QAL | Block #3: Mini Hashtag from 3and3quarters


Let me dive straight in and introduce you to the Mini Hashtag Block, our third in my Mini Block QAL!

You know, I actually never realised just how quick and simple this little block was to cut and piece together! It seems like I blinked and it was miraculously sitting in front of me! (Almost like a ‘I Dream of Jeannie’ type of situation!) You’ll know what I mean once you make it yourself! It’ll be a ten minute job, easy! </p>

MINI BLOCK QAL | Block #2: Flying Dutchman from 3and3quarters


Woot! Block two is a little beauty!

This darling orange filled triangle maze is called the Flying Dutchman. Made entirely of flying geese units, you can choose to make a statement with the centre triangles (make that pinwheel standout, honey!) or go real low-key and do all of your F.G units the same! (As always) The choice is yours!!

FYI, this block is slightly tricky to piece (obvs because of it’s itty-bitty size!) so be really aware of keeping to a 1/4″ seam each time you’re at the sewing machine and make ...

MINI BLOCK QAL | Block #1: Flying Geese from 3and3quarters


And we’re on our way! Let’s get in to making Block 1!

This one is simply called ‘Flying Geese’ as it features four lovely little Flying Geese sweetly stacked in the centre and then framed by two chunky rectangles on either side.

One of the great things about making mini blocks is that they take a flash to make – literally! As soon as you’ve cut the tiny pieces out, you’ve magically made a tiny block that you’ll squeal all over due to it’s itty-bitty size! But let’s not romanticise ...

My 2018 Sewing Goals from 3and3quarters

Did you know that 2018 marks my seventh year of blogging?! Seven years! Where has the time gone from when I was a shy 23 year old, tentatively entering the scary waters of online blogging? It seems like a life-time ago!

Anyhoo! A new year has started (even though we’re four months in already!! Eek!) and my precious little blog has been screaming out for some love and attention.

November… November was the last time I sat down, logged on and typed my little heart away catching you all up on my Sewing Room Adventures.

With lots of fun ...

My 30th Birthday Weekend from 3and3quarters

Let’s be honest, I’m not one for the attention that birthdays bring. I’m a typical wall-flower type of gal who likes to happily sit in the wings and watch the world float by.

However, the week leading up to along with the weekend that my 30th fell on, ended up being one of the busiest I’ve had in a long time…

So you know how I rave on about being a Florist and such? Well I actually put my skills into use and only did flowers for my first ever wedding!!!

The bride was the daughter ...

Falling In Love With Sewing Again from 3and3quarters

It’s no secret, this year has freakishly flown by, eating up time like it’s no bodies business. And my poor sewing machine has suffered as a consequence.

Also, not gonna lie, my motivation to sew and be creative has taken a bit of a hit too. So with all of that combined, not a whole lot of movement has been had in my sewing room this year.

But recently a few projects have come to hand to make me dust off the sewing machine, dig out my rulers and cutters and get sewing again.

In my last post ...

Star Sampler Quilt | Finishing Touches from 3and3quarters

After almost a year of getting the ball rolling, the end of my Star Sampler Quilt Along has come to an end! *insert sad/happy face – whichever one applies!*

In the final instalment of the series, I’ve jammed packed it full of all of the ‘finishing touches’ we need to do to have a completed quilt!

This time ’round there’s no pattern sheet to follow or to download, instead everything you’ll need to know is either in the video tutorial or listed here in this post…

So once you’ve finished piecing together your quilt top with ...
