Mermaid Rides the Elephant from Sew Preeti Quilts

I have a new finish to share but would you, could you wait till I share some news? Pretty, please.

I am in a magazine...well, my work is.

A couple of weeks ago I received an email from Diptee Raut of Quilt Stories, asking if I'd consider contributing to India's first quilting magazine.  I was so slammed at that time that I told Diptee - Take a look at my blog and use whatever you like. Diptee chose the tutorial for the Picket Star Quilt Block and here is the link to the magazine

Courage uses the Picket ...

Update on my Traveller's Blanket from Quilting & Learning

I started my Traveller's Blanket in May 2020 based on a course by Dejanne Cevaal. This will be my second stitching project for the next part of my #100dayschallenge on Instagram.

Traveller's Blanket so far

Mixing up projects and techniques

This project has what I love best - a mixture of different projects and techniques (links in Related links below).
  • Meditation stitching - after reading an article by Liz Kettle in the October/November 2019 edition of the Quilting Arts magazine, I started making 4" squares. It was very calming and creative, but what to do with all of those ...

Remembering Chevy from Quilting & Learning

Chevy came to us 5 years ago in June. I remember feeling that she had pushed her way into my heart within hours! 

Chevy - our Warrior Princess!

Last Christmas my daughter and I bought Chevy a new collar from Pooch & Tabby of Toronto. It was called Warrior Princess and it was perfect! Chevy was feisty, protective and full of love for her adoptive family and of food (not sure in which order!)

My favourite picture of Chevy sleeping on her quilts!

Chevy was also part of my Muse. Taking our walks has lead to a few of my favourite art ...

Mystery UFO from Quilting & Learning

This quilt has now been on my design wall for several months. I felt like doing something different, so I thought that I would work on it. I had the fabric strips and extra pieces in a project box but no pattern...where did this project come from?  

Mystery UFO (UnFinished Object) solved

First clue: I checked to see when I had first taken pictures of the quilt on my design wall. I found this picture in December on my Studio Tour post, and on my phone it first appeared in mid-November. It would seem that I didn't write ...

EPP Project Progress from Curlicue Creations

Progress update on my current EPP project.  I've been working on this slow and steady. All Island Batik fabrics. It's still got a long way to go.  Any guesses as to what it is yet?

Hexies galore and Free Motion Mavericks from Quilting & Learning

I can't believe  it - I totally forgot that I had a post and a link up due today. I did vaguely think about it this week and then my sleep deprived brain skipped right over it. Such is life these days!

More repurposing, plus a small giveaway from The Academic Quilter

 Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a really good week. For me, we are barreling towards the end of the semester, and it cannot come soon enough. I can't wait to delete Zoom. And now that I've said that, you know it's never going to happen, right?

These past couple of months when I was too stressed to stitch, I still spent some time in the sewing room, sorting and deciding what to do with projects that I had started and not finished. Some will get finished, but others have been repurposed. (Like this one ...

Week 4 of #AtoZchallenge2021Quilt (Art) from Quilting & Learning

Wow, I'm keeping up with the #AtoZchallenge2021Quilt (Art) on Instagram. It's been a long, hard week but I managed it. This is the second last week of April and I'm going to show you what I posted, from P to U!

P is for Paper

The piece is Momigami tree and was created based on a workshop with Cas Holmes through in August 2020. Momigami is Japanese for cloth made of kneaded paper.  We adapted the process by using long-fibred paper and kneading it with a little bit of oil until it become more supple ...

And then the lights went out from The Academic Quilter

 Hello everyone! Hey, are you all covered in snow? We are, and it's freaking me out just a little because it's been so long since we've seen it. The snow is also complicating some excitement I've had in the sewing room recently. I have flourescent lights in there-- or I had, at this point-- and I lost two out of three of them one day last week. They just stopped working, which was not welcome at all. We had planned to change out the lights in there to some LED lights anyway, so we called the ...

Liberty Pillow from Quilting Stories

I was not satisfied with my LIBERTY pillow. Laziness never pays : I had not quilted it and it looked flat.

Neither was I pleased with the back of it, done with a basic cotton instead of a Liberty one. 

As regards the sewing of a zip : for those like me who have difficulties with this step, there is the solution of linking the two parts of the back of the pillow with strings, as shown on the last picture. The result is lovely.

Now my pillow looks perfect!

happy october . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

Hello October, I'm so happy that you're here!  It's *birthday* month and it's blog hop month, too!  :)

I finished stitching up Mr. Jack O'Lantern!  
He's such fun.  But I felt he needed something a little more than a hoop or mug rug finish. I think I found (or rather, made) the perfect solution . . .
Yay!  It's a slipcover for a Christmas pillow I've had for ages. I may go back and quilt the face of it later.  Maybe.  Right now, I'm liking is just as it is, where it is!

I got ...

A Hexie Project + OMG June + FNwF from Samelia's Mum

It's been fairly quiet in the sewing room this week. I finished appliqueing all of the petals which I had prepared for my orange peel temperature quilt and need to make some more.
