It's officially finished!! lots of photos from Quilting Lots Moore Designs

I said to myself - I'm not posting again until Danielle's quilt is finished because you would all be sick of getting updates showing so little progress.  Well, it is done and dusted and as I type it is winging its way up to Danielle in Te Awamutu.  Our youngest son and his family are going up to visit his siblings up that way, so he is loaded down with the quilt and five beanies for delivery!!!

I'm sure most of you think I have fallen off the planet as I didn't realise it had been quite ...

Curved Log Cabin Quilt + Two Baby Quilts finished this week. from Jan's Quilts


I decided that this quilt needed a facing instead of a binding finish.  I thought binding it would stop the "movement" of the design.  I really don't like hand-stitching, but it's inevitable when attaching a facing.  It took a while, but I got it done, and I'm very happy with the results.


I used lots of FQs for the pieced back and I like the contrast with the front.  I kept the facing scrappy, too, in the spirit of the back.


I also finished two baby quilts this week.  Luckily binding worked well for them.  Below are ...

Houston, We Have A Problem from Jan's Quilts



The is the Red, White and Blue Baby Quilt top that I finished in January.  Here is the post about it.

When I posted the finished quilt on social media, I got a call from my eldest.  She and her sister and my granddaughter were aghast at what they saw on the back of the quilt.  I couldn't see what they saw until I downloaded my camera photos to my pc, and viewed the photo from a distance.  Sure enough, there's a problem.  I will get it fixed.  I can't remove it because it's already quilted ...

Proof Positive Plus Quilt from The Cloth Parcel

One great thing about being quilters is that the new babies in our family never arrive to this world without a baby quilt.  It’s always so exciting to plan the quilts, and think about the sweet new guy or gal on the way as we sew.  We never feel quite ready for the baby to […]

When You Can't Reach the Peddle.... from Val's Quilting Studio

While visiting our grand guys this past weekend, knowing I made quilts and after inquisitively watching me stitch during movie time, one of their friends really wanted me to teach him how to sew. My daughter didn't hesitate to unpack her sewing machine and we let the boys dive into a box of fabric scraps. As I sat and worked on some binding, I taught the oldest, who is nine, how to use the machine. I taught him the main parts of the machine: foot, pedal and the ol' 1/4 inch! 

 He was very focused, detailed oriented and ...

Red, White and Blue Baby Quilt Top from Jan's Quilts

May your bobbins always be full,

After a very long absence from my blog, I am back with the last quilt I achieved.
It was a very easy and quick baby quilt to complete, though hand quilted. 
I started end of September and finished beginning of November, just in time before flying to Paris : 
last stitches the night before!

This quilt is a gift for my niece who decorated the bedroom of her future daughter using very soft colors. I first intended to sew a quilt using my beloved Liberty fabrics but, after I received the pictures of the wallpapers, I put them away and decided ...

Progress has been made...lots of photos from Quilting Lots Moore Designs

My friend Lorraine said "your blog's been a bit quiet lately."  Oh dear, she is right, I have been so busy concentrating on getting stuff done, that the energy required for posting has not been there.

On top of all that I keep forgetting to take photos of finished quilts!!!  Hate that.  Here are a few photos of what I have been up to lately.

These first three are from the Master Guild quilt shown held in Carterton last month.




This is the guest exhibitor - none other than said Lorraine Baker who commented on my lack of posting!  Revenge ...

I urge you to try to make a quilt out of your comfort zone!  I was so happy to hear the news that my niece was expecting that I just had to make her a quilt!  But I almost backed out when she requested it to be in gray, black and white tones. That’s when … Continue reading "Stepping out of your comfort zone to make great quilts!"

Progress for 6and6in2018 and all that... from Quilting Lots Moore Designs

has happened in the last six weeks has halted some progress, but I'm quite pleased at what I did manage to achieve.  After the medical hassles mentioned last I managed to get a bladder infection and then react afterwards to the antibiotics.  Ho hum, it goes like that sometimes.  Now it's onward and upwards I reckon.

So I have managed to make some progress on Danielle's quilt which only needs the 5.5 inch and 3.5 inch HST's made.  Unfortunately, because I have changed the initial direction for the fabrics in this quilt I felt ...

Tiny Monster from Becca's Crazy Projects

Friends of our recently welcomed their first child into the world. Darling Husband wanted something with dragons. Sadly, the big box fabric store wasn't very helpful. They did have some fun, tiny monster fabric that we decided would be perfect. I decided to make another disappearing 9-patch. Because it is an easy pattern and you can do some fun things with it.
The tiny monster fabric and three solids became eleven 9-patch blocks. Then, they got cut down into 42 blocks. That odd-ball block ended up being only two blocks, the other half of that unit got put in ...

sweet baby makes from Charm About You


embroidery hooded baby towel

I have a couple of cute baby projects to share that I made for Sewing Quarter in celebration of Natasha's baby shower recently.
This adorable hooded baby towel is based on one I had as a child, that my kids all used too! It's a combination of soft plush fleece fabric and towelling. Neither of which is easy to hand embroider but I used the brilliant Stitch-n-Tear with DMC perle cotton #5 and it worked really nicely!

Milly's Bubble Romper ~~ A Finish! from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

I decided this morning that I would work on one small project and try to get a finish. And goodness gracious, I did it! I've been wanting to make a little outfit for Milly, but I had a particular pattern in mind. An hour of searching in the studio did not unearth that pattern. 

However, I did find a bubble romper pattern which I like very much. It's a New Look pattern by Simplicity that is no longer in print. I bought it almost 20 years ago and used it to make Dusti a couple of outfits. It ...
