What happened in April from Romany Quilting

Looking back, it  seems that April has been a very productive month.  Mind you, we have all been in Level 4 Lockdown here in New Zealand, just moving to Level 3 with similar restrictions, so hardly any tripping around at all.  I remember that I often used to comment on my lack of stitching endeavours, saying something like “not much time for sewing as we will be away in the caravan this weekend etc”.  Well, during Lockdown that hasn’t happened for a while and all weekends lately have been spent at home, including Easter and Anzac weekends.  So….. a ...

Christmas Coins from Romany Quilting

I blame Jocelyn who writes as Canadian Needle Nana for this, check out her version of Christmas Coins here.  Such a great idea, I thought, so why not make something similar for myself.  All the Christmas coins were small scraps and strips hanging around, some longer than others, wider strips, and narrow ones too, so nothing Christmassy was cut from stash at this stage.  I’ve never been what you would call a scrappy quilter, so with mixing up all sorts of colours and designs, and different widths too, this project was a real adventure for me.  Originally this started ...

Finished – Caravan Stitching from Romany Quilting

It’s Sunday, and I’m so pleased I finished my “roll the dice no 4” this week, which were a couple of items for the caravan, using caravan themed fabric.  I had been gifted two lengths of fabric a birthday or two ago, so was happy to finally get on and use them.   I’d decided to make placemats with the grey, and an apron with the blue.  Messy cooks like me need aprons, even away on caravan trips!

I had to piece the blue fabric to get the length I needed, and couldn’t match the pattern, but ...

Working the Border from Fret Not Yourself

"Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard a work worth doing."
~Theodore Roosevelt

Last week the black border didn't add anything to the conversation but the quilt still needed more contrast. I pieced more hourglasses with some black added to the pink and blues for the border then spent a while laying them out. This arrangement makes a striking zig zag but is much too strong for the weak center. {I'll have to remember it for another time.}

Ruby slippers from Bizarre Quilter

The journey of Dorothy in the Wizard of OZ has struck a chord with me for quite a long time. 

It is only through a journey of life changing experiences that Dorothy discovers that she had the power all along.


In this case, all she had to do was use the magick in the ruby slippers.


I have used this utterly amazeballs purple swirl with metallic gold print fabric as the background for an altar cloth, then added sparkly socks, and painted the ruby slippers with layers and layers of sparkly fabric paint to make them shine and shine.


And ...

Sharing Sunday - New Series of posts from Bee She Bags


I haven't ever done a series of posts before, and I'm going to even try and include a linky widget so you can add links to whatever theme I've done for this week, which happens to be APRONS, you know, things we use when cooking, painting, cleaning (yes, I do know what that is, I looked it up in the dictionary!) etc to protect our clothes from getting messy, or just because we love wearing them.  I know when I'm cooking, if I don't wear one, I sometimes get splatter marks up the front of ...
