Spring Fling quilt from Charm About You

spring fling quilt by Lucy Brennan | Charm About You

I'm so lucky that I get to have SO MUCH FUN creating designs with bright and beautiful fabric. For this quilt I picked out prints from Zuma by Tula Pink and a range of colours from Tula Pink solids.  A classic block in the centre and medallion style borders made with a mix of regular machine piecing and foundation paper piecing, make for a modern and dynamic quilt. My Spring Fling quilt pattern is in Issue 71 of Love Patchwork & Quilting - out now!

The detail in the prints is just amazing, there's so many that I thought were ...

Shamrocks Cross Stitch from Kitty and Me Designs

With St. Patrick's Day just around the corner, I thought I'd share my stitched piece of my Shamrocks Cross Stitch pattern with you:

I finished this up about a week ago.  The little lazy daisy stitches give it a dainty, delicate look!

I'll have to put this away for finishing in time for next year.  I can't get to either one of my sewing machines to finish it.  Once I get my own place, I'll have a lot of nice things to finish sew together!

Here's the pattern leaflet:

Love with a Twist Signature Block from Clever Chameleon

Love with a Twist signature appliqué block Lasting Love Balloon by Dione Gardner-Stephen of Clever Chameleon Quilting

It’s only the 24th of February and I have completed this month’s planned Love with a Twist February blocks. And even better, the patterns too! Wonders never cease!

Today’s Love Balloon pattern is the second option for the large centre block of the Love with a Twist throw size quilts. You’ll also need it for the twin size quilt. It’s an easy block, I think the fastest so far. It only has two fabrics and no extra details to embroider.

Scrappy Rails info update from Stitchin' Therapy

  Just a quick update to the idea I shared yesterday about what I am calling the  Scrappy Rail Fence block and design.  We all know there is little under the sun that is new, and so it proved to be with this idea. 
  Within a few hours of posting Linda at Art in Search blog, sent me a link to info on this.    She had a file from It's a Stitch Quilt Guild from 2016.  They have a challenge each year for their show and provide a pattern sheet called a "Seed Packet" pattern.

cross stitch - Kindness & Fortitude: A Quaker Sampler from Modern Folk Embroidery by Lucy Brennan

Those quiet moments in the evening, a few stitches on my lunch break, this pick up and put down project is slowly coming to life. It is a soothing, mindful way to relax and all the colours together look very peaceful and calming to me.

I knew that the Kindness & Fortitude: A Quaker Sampler from Modern Folk Embroidery was going to be the first project I started in 2019. It was no coincidence that my word for the year is FORTITUDE, I did chose this pattern partly for that reason but also because it appealed to me ...

Lots of Cutting & Retreat Prep from Heart Desire Creations

Sewing retreats – so very much gets done! To prepare for a 4 day retreat I’m going to, I cut out not one, but two new projects! The first is for a gift for a little boy. I’ve never done an “I Spy” quilt before and thought it would be the perfect gift for the little guy.  Unfortunately, my stash is not very supportive of this quilt. I did manage to cut 9-five inch blocks and then the request process to friends and my guild for more. I’m going to do “square in a square” blocks, using various ...
