Stars of Solace from Sew Preeti Quilts


Audition Block

Ready to Piece

Just Playing with HSTs

Mom was exasperated.
Can I have just one room that is clean and uncluttered?  One room where I can seat a guest?
Is that too much to ask?


Design Wall

Two Rows = Half Done


Yay for the Flimsy!!!

Mom is an early riser and by early afternoon she needs a nap. If mom was taking a nap in the bedroom, we girls would take our toys in the drawing room and play as quietly as possible. And although we kept the noise level to a minimum the clutter and the mess ...

Making Fabric from Fret Not Yourself

"I do not know how you draw the line between fine art and craft, or 
between the utilitarian and the non-utilitarian... I want to be an artist
... I intend to walk where I choose and not care which country I'm in." 
~June Schwarcz, 
Fourth National Conference of the American Craft Council, 1961

Also, this is your final reminder to link up your improv projects by the end of the month for Show Me Something Improv. :-)

Sawtooth Star Quilt: Colour and Inspiration Tuesday from Clever Chameleon

Sawtooth Star quilt colour board

Preparing for a big 2020

I’m starting to sort and pack up my things ready to move house after Christmas….. all my batiks are already in boxes, so you can tell where my priorities lie…..

Clothes? Nope. Kitchenware? Nope. Laundry consumables…… does the iron count?! hahahaha nope, because it’s only used for quilting…. Schooling supplies and toys? Some. Batiks and favourite books? …. Ready to go!

Biased priorities aside, in starting to sort my sewing space I have had to have a good hard look at my quilting UFOs. Many are moving house with me, and will form the ...
