Impromptu quilt top from Espritpatch

 A break from bag making! Some time ago, while I was going through my UFOs etc, I digged out the blocks for my Impromptu Quilt, with the aim to finish the top to send it for quilting. The top finishes at 90'' square so it is too big for my own frame and after sending my Flabellum for quilting, I thought it would be a good idea to send this one too. The only problem was that

1) the top wasn't anywhere near ready to go

2) I am pressed with time with the house move

Anyway, Kerry kindly ...

An old friend - with HST from Espritpatch

 In 2016, I joined the Modern HST quilt-along with Alyce. I didn't quite follow through but eventually caught up with the blocks in January 2019. I had all but one block done and a problem: I didn't have enough background fabric left for the last block. 

I searched online, ordered some, my order was cancelled because the fabric was out of stock. I launched an appeal online but never got any reply. So I was stuck with 23 blocks, not sure what to do to finish it off. 


And finally earlier this month, I decided that I could ...

Retro Tetro from Espritpatch

Last top finished, first one quilted? Well yes! That was not the original plan but since I ran out of thread for my bear on Saturday night, I figured I should take it off the frame and replace it with another quilt for which I had enough thread to last the week-end! So on came the Retro Tetro quilt top.

For this one, I had planned to use same colours as the fabric, which of course, meant changing threads very often! I used an all-over quilting motif for the top and used up so many bobbins.     


I really like how ...

Joining a new quilt-along.... very late from Espritpatch

When the Halo Quilt Along was announced back in March, I had all intentions to join in with the fun. I ordered the book, printed the template and set on using my stash of Liberty fabrics. But I worked on other projects and never got started... 


Finally earlier this month, I got my box of Liberty out and went through those packs of scraps I had bought over the years to start cutting the pieces. 

Cutting always take forever but in a way sometimes it is quite therapeutic when tired/fed up/exhausted etc... So I have quietly and slowly ...

Irish Chain Quilts from Quilt Collection M.

Der Irish Chain Quilt Along ist schon ein paar Monate vorbei und erst jetzt komme ich dazu etwas zu meinem fertigen Irish Chain Quilt zu schreiben. Der Quilt Along ging von Anfang Januar bis Ende Februar. Es war ein Quilt Along wie ein Wirbelsturm und erfahrungsgemäß ist das auch immer gut so. Jede Woche kam eine neue Anleitung von Amber à la Gigi´s Thimble. Das klappt bei mir immer super. Vor lauter Begeisterung über das schöne klassische Muster habe ich direkt zwei Irish Chain Quilts gestartet: Einen in scrappy und einen in zweifarbig. Über den Beginn habe ich hier ...
