A quilting we will go! from Celtic Thistle Stitches

Yay! I have finally got to the stage of quilting my Quilt Group Sampler quilt. I am only about 3 months behind everyone else, but we will gloss over that for now :)

We are using Quilt As You Go for this quilt, which is also the technique used in my first ever quilt class several years ago. If I tell you that I have 24 blocks backed, basted and nearly all quilted sitting in my cupboard from that class you will understand why I am rather hesitant about this whole process. Part of the reason that those blocks have gathered ...

Lil Miss Penny Patch is Finished from Childlike Fascination

Remember that time I joined a quilt along in 2013 with the intention of finishing the quilt before that Christmas? Well a year and month later I can finally say: She done!

I gotta say Lil Miss Penny (as I call her) is an absolute disaster. I know I’m my own toughest critic but between sloppy 1/4″ seams, not squaring up blocks and an ill attempt at a new quilt as you go technique (there’s some kinks to work out there) it’s literally full of mistakes! You know what all those mistakes add up to though ...

STILL FLIRTY AT 30?! from That's Sew Kerry

Happy Birthday Chantal

Christmas Eve marks the day that this wonderful human was born, and I'm thankful everyday that she was!! And this year (last year) she turned 30 and therefore by default is entitled to a rather special present in my opinion! It's been months in the making.....mostly down to laziness, sadness and sickness but I got there in the end a multitude of bright shiny stars, for my bright shiny star. When making a girly present to go into a home she shares with a boy, does one need to take this manliness into account ...

Branching Out With Butterflies. from quiltaholic

I have repurposed one of my quilt kits to give it a new focus.

I have taken my mixture of butterflies and fossil ferns and transformed it from this single bed quilt.

Butterfly quilts

To these combinations of cot quilt and baby bag.

The fabrics are still amongst the prettiest I have seen in the years I have been quilting and this way there is no need to lose out just because you don’t need a single bed quilt. There seems to be a steadily growing if  imported trend for baby showers. What better than a set for travelling. You won ...

Quilt as You Go Scrappy Log Cabin blocks - Building Blocks Tuesday from Closet Quilter


Pink QAYG Improv Scrappy Log Cabin

When I am procrastinating properly, I tend to pick up projects that are easy and fun, yet still have some merit.  This week, I found myself making these Quilt-as-you-go (QAYG) Scrappy Log Cabin blocks.  They served several purposes: they helped me use up some of my scraps, they let me participate in the Scrappy Log Cabin QAL on Instagram, and eventually, they will be made into scrap baskets to hold even more scraps.  I wish I could take credit for the idea for the last one, but it is out of the book Sunday Morning Quilts by Cheryl Arkison and ...

Another Owlie Aussie Hero Quilt from Bee She Bags

Here's the latest quilt I've made for an Aussie Hero who is currently deployed overseas....I know this person wouldn't have a clue who I am, let alone be one of my blog readers, so feel safe in sharing pics of it with you.  Like me, this ...

Happy New Year!!

I can't believe it's a new year already, this year (last year) has just flown by and what a year it has been!! Some incredible highs and some hit the ground rock bottom lows......here we go!

In February my bestest got married and oh my what a magical day it was, now I know you will be thinking that I'm biased so obviously I'm going to say that, but it truly truly was!!! Everything was just perfect, the setting, her dress, the flowers, the band it was like being apart of an ...

TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE STAR from That's Sew Kerry

Christmas Bee Round Up

WIP Wednesday was super productive not only did I manage to complete two Bee blocks, but I also got some work done on a secret project for a special little monkey! Smug smile and own back pats coming up!!

First up is the completed Triple Star block that I made for Gemma, she had very specific color choices and color placements as these blocks are intended for a particular place in her house. Although some of the pieces are really small the block itself comes together really nicely and the finished product looks really good.

Quilt As You Go Weekender from Little Blue Cottage

weekenderfull

A few months ago, a new spin on the Weekender Bag pattern by Amy Butler was started by Elizabeth from Oh Fransson.  This pattern has been sitting in my “To-Do” list of projects for at least a year, but somehow working up the nerve to do it hadn’t come yet.  I couldn’t choose a fabric that would be worthy of such a sewing milestone.  Should it be home dec?  A heavy Japanese canvas or linen/cotton?  I just let it go to the “undecided” part of my sewing brain and waited for inspiration to strike.  The quilt as ...
