Smoky Mountains Vacation....and fabric from A Quilting Sheep

Hello, friends!! Last week, my hubby and I spent many wonderful hours in the great Smoky Mountains between TN and NC. It was so good to get away and to relax. 

The views were breathtaking...Photographs simply can't do them justice. We rented a Harley trike for a couple of days and took the Blue Ridge Parkway into Asheville, NC up and over Mount Pisgah. Now, I am a wee bit afraid of heights, but normally I am fine when my feet are on the ground. However, this road trip was an exception. The higher and higher into the ...

The Rhonda Quilt and Mini from Want It, Need It, Quilt It!

Introducing the Rhonda quilt and little sister the Rhonda mini quilt.

The Rhonda block is made in memory of my beautiful mother. Sadly, mum passed away six years ago and there is not one day that passes that I don't think of her. Mum was my greatest fan and the one who supported me the most in my adventures as a quilter.

One of my favourite pictures of mum. Rhonda was beautiful inside and out. 

The Rhonda quilt pattern has instructions for crib, lap, twin and king sized quilts. FQ friendly. The pattern uses the EZ-quilting Tri Rec tool ...

2015 Stash Report: March from Riddle and Whimsy

Most of the fabric that came my way through March, I didn’t even buy, but won from a giveaway from Michelle at From Bolt to Beauty. At the time of entering, I didn’t know what she was giving away, so it could have been a booby prize of all her ugly fabrics for all I knew! :) She sent me the most perfect set of fabrics though; all from Amy Butler’s range Violette. I wish I took a photo of how she packed them as Michelle had folded them up all so nice and pretty and cute and ...

Q1 2015: Finish #1 from Riddle and Whimsy

About time I start sharing more finishes! This one is my mini for the #kittenmqs2015 swap on Instagram (mqs is short for “mini quilt swap” by the way!). I saw a Kitty swap on Instagram a while ago before I jumped into joining swaps so I was so excited to see another one come along, because yay kitties! It’s also the first item I can cross off as complete for my Finish Along goals this quarter!

Last Of The Vacation from Mama Spark's World

I will finish talking about the vacation and  I thought I would share with you the fabric I purchased while on the trip down. We stopped at 2 quilt shops on the way down.   I don't remember the name of the one I bought the purple and grays at but  the other one was in Wytheville.   How do I remember that town.  This, I remember it from this office supply shop.  Hilarious! We

4×7 Sewing Challenge: Week 3 from Riddle and Whimsy

The third week into the 4×7 Sewing Challenge hosted by Berry Barn Designs has seen some projects near the finish line which makes me feel super accomplished!

First up, I spent the first few days on the computer making a new blog header, and then I decided I needed new quilt labels to match my new blog look! I love the new look of my header so I think I’ll be happy enough to keep these labels ongoing for a while.

{ Some Things Take Forever. } from {The Sweetest Dreams}

Like my Fat Quarter Shop Mystery Block of the Month...................for 2012!!!  Geez, I just finished the last 12 inch block last week. This wasn't the only quilty project I was sewing , it just kept getting pushed aside while I worked on other things.
This is the first BOM that I signed up for and I made a really poor showing. I had all good intentions to make each block as it arrived but stuff happened.
Anyway, I purchased the finishing kit and the backing so now I have to get moving and finish this baby up. For those ...

Playing with something New from Lilabelle Lane


I fell in love with this pattern as soon as I saw it.
The instructions are for hand piecing but it can also be Machine pieced but I am

I am planning on using my Bonnie and Camille Scraps and stash for this one.

My first block was fun playing with stripes.

I think this next block is my favourite so far :o)

And a progress shot so far.

True North from Want It, Need It, Quilt It!

I bought a pattern today because I love this one so much. It's a new pattern from She Quilts A Lot called True North. I can feel a Quilt-A-long in the air. 

The quilt shown is in Moda Bella and Bonnie and Camille fabrics but would be fabulous in any collection.

Jelly Roll and Charm friendly, this design would suit confident beginners and above. The comprehensive pattern with loads of diagrams has instructions for three sizes; crib, lap and twin.

The pattern is available in paper and digital from Peta's e-shop found here.

The block makes a perfect ...

"Snapshots" from Lilabelle Lane

It's the 15th January and that means that the first block for the
"Snapshots Quilt" was released today.

I have order a kit from the Fat Quarter Shop but they don't ship until the yardage of Daysail is released next month so off to raid my Bonnie and Camille scraps it was.

Not to sure how I have survived so long without these mini design boards.
They make piecing and breeze.

 Ta-da Block one is done.

The block instructions can be found HERE.

until next time,
hugs Sharon

some more stashing from Charm About You

I'm late showing these, they actually came a little while ago but here's what I've added to my stash recently...

I won this pretty bundle of Calico by Dear Stella from Cuts of Cotton in an instagram giveaway. A beautiful rainbow of colours and the print is so cute!

I ordered these cute lace zips from My Fabric House, they have lots of great colours and free UK p&p.

And then I couldn't help but get these beauties from the Fat Quarter Shop: Edith in Good Luck Green, Follie by Lotta Jansdotter - love that soft ...

Aurifil Designer Blocks 2014 finish from Want It, Need It, Quilt It!

December marked the last month of a fabulous year of blocks from the Aurifil Designer BOM 2014. To finish the quilt I framed each block in a spool and set them on point with a specially designed spool block in the centre.

The words, "Love is the thread that binds all quilters" is embroidered on the block.

The PDF pattern for the centre spool block can be found here and the on-point lay out design instructions can be found at or
