New Pattern Pinstripe Crossing from Quilt in Piece

New Pattern Pinstripe Crossing Pinstripe Crossing In July, I started something new. I started a new tester group to help me test out my new patterns, plus was in the process of creating a secret Facebook group just for my testers. One of my testers Richard Eaves, tested Pinstripe Crossing for me (crib size), and I love the end result very much. This pattern was meant to be released round about 9 July 2017. But things went very pear shaped straight after that. I am only now feeling some normality returning to my life, so after I finish of some ...

The One Where I Obsess About Things Part 2 from knot what it seams

There is this ball of yarn that has been teasing me for months.

It’d been sitting there at the craft shop pretending to be all innocent whilst beguiling me with it’s pretty colours. But be proud of me, dear reader, because I resisted the urge to get it until I had a definite idea of what I wanted to do with it. Not a vague ‘I suppose I could do this…’ but a ‘This is the whole reason that this ball was created! It is for this purpose!!!’

And the purpose is?

Bath scrubbies! The yarn is 100 ...

MQG Quilt of the Month – September 2017! from Flying Parrot Quilts

I’ve made another science quilt (shocking, I know!), and this one is the Modern Quilt Guild’s September Quilt of the Month, meaning members can download the pattern from the community site! I’m so excited to share the quilt and just a little bit about the science with you.

Molecular Test quilt by Sylvia Schaefer, inspired by gel electrophoresis/Flying Parrot Quilts | www.flyingparrotquilts.com

This quilt is called Molecular Test because it is based on a test called “gel electrophoresis” (pronounced “e-lec-tro-FOR-ee-sys”). Scientists use this method to separate molecules (typically, proteins or DNA fragments) by size. Basically, the samples are placed in a gel medium and an electric current is applied, which causes ...

The Nutcracker Christmas Row and a Giveaway from Sew Incredibly Crazy

Marian at Seams to Be Sew decided that this year's 
row along would have a Christmas theme.
Christmas time is one of my favorite times of the year.
So of course, I had to join in.
Go to her blog to get all the info about
this hop and giveaways HERE.

I first thought to do the 12 days of Christmas, 
but then was totally unsure I 
could fit all of the characters in one row.
Then, I thought of my children's love
for anything Nutcracker, so 
here is my take on it.




The row is 12 1 ...

⌔ patchwork stitchy pie ⌔ from Charm About You


This is everything I love! Patchwork, english paper piecing, appliqué, quilting, hand sewing - I've thrown it all in there to make this version of my Stitchy Pie needle case pattern! And of course that cat!


I used some 45° diamond papers to create a star with some of my favourite prints from my stash - Cocoland cats, a spoonflower print I got recently, Lighthearted by Ayumi Mills, Architextures by Carolyn Friendlander and Bright Heart by Amy Butler.


Since it worked so well before, I used a decorative stitch to appliqué the star (see top picture). There was a little bit ...

rainbow pincushion from Charm About You


Finally a lazy day; with the kids back at school I spent time with my husband (we skived and went to the cinema!) and then I finished off this rainbow pincushion this afternoon.

The rainbow is part of my Whatever the Weather hand pieced mini quilt pattern, which I will be teaching at Stitch Gathering at myBearpaw in October. 


I have added borders and just finished some appliqué on them so I will be quilting the mini soon - I have a plan and a rough sketch of how I want to quilt it!


The pattern is a great stash buster ...
