Wall Hanging Complete from 120 Blocks

Last night I completed the strawberries wall hanging. It took longer than I had hoped when I started it because it was a traditional, not laser cut, appliqué kit. (i’m assuming they were out of the laser cut kit when … Continue reading

Ciboulette Stitches finished from Quilting & Learning

It's done! My project for Sue Stones' Stitch Club 2020 is finished. I really enjoy the time that I have to stitch.  

Ciboulette Stitches 

Here it is! I'm really happy with the finished project. I had planned to only have one flower but it really needed more, so now there are three.

Ciboulette Stitches finished!
Here is a close up of the flowers.

My model for the chive flower comes from my front garden. It hasn't received much attention but I love  that the chives grow without my effort - my favourite kind ...

Bearded Santa Paper-Pieced Quilted wall hanging from Wisonsin Quilting

22×44″ Santa: easy enough for newbies, satisfying enough for pros, fast enough for Christmas

This is a great pattern for a Christmas wall-hanging, door decoration, or advent calendar. Get into your stash and make some stacks of light, medium and darker grays, 3 flesh tones, some whites, dark and bright reds and green for the background. Most of the squares are just 2-1/2″ squares with scattered paper piecing. You’ll be piecing columns as shown at right above. When you get to a white bit, you’ll stop and piece that from the two indicated colors continuing down ...

Little By Little from 120 Blocks

I spent all of last week making masks, but didn’t take pictures of them, apparently. I gave most of them away, so I still need to make more for myself. I did make one out of this dog material. At … Continue reading

Winter has Arrived from Romany Quilting

The days have ticked over and the 1st of June heralds in Winter in my part of the world.  And just to show us that Mother Nature is boss, yesterday was cold and rather wet.  So wet in fact that there was flooding and road closures further up the country.  Pity the poor holiday makers trying to get home after the long three day holiday weekend – luckily we had stayed home this time and were tucked up safe and warm inside. 

The change of season always  means a change of wall-hangings.  (Forgive me if you have seen them before).  Down ...

What happened in April from Romany Quilting

Looking back, it  seems that April has been a very productive month.  Mind you, we have all been in Level 4 Lockdown here in New Zealand, just moving to Level 3 with similar restrictions, so hardly any tripping around at all.  I remember that I often used to comment on my lack of stitching endeavours, saying something like “not much time for sewing as we will be away in the caravan this weekend etc”.  Well, during Lockdown that hasn’t happened for a while and all weekends lately have been spent at home, including Easter and Anzac weekends.  So….. a ...

Tane Mahuta from Romany Quilting

Inspired by the Tiny Tree stitch-along by Temecula Quilt Co  the idea for this project evolved and grew.  Using two New Zealand batik designs, kowhai tree and ferns, I decided to make the blocks a little bigger.  And instead of stitching the multiple block designs which were offered in the stitch-along, I decided on pinwheel blocks only.

Tane Mahuta

The tree section was free motion quilted in large stipple, and what a time I had.  Because I do FMQ irregularly, it takes me a while to work out what to do, usually after a spate of nothing much happening because ...

My Balance wall hanging is done! from The Crafty Quilter

Hi friends. I have finished my BALANCE wall hanging which portrays my 2020 Word of the Year in a creative way. I’m really happy with the way it turned out.

BALANCE Wall Hanging made and designed by Julie Cefalu @ The Crafty Quilter

I have been working on this, off and on, since January. It was the free motion quilting around the letters that had me stalled for a while. Once I dug my heels in, it only took me two days to finish it.

Home again from Romany Quilting

We are now safely back home after our trip away.  The caravan has been emptied and cleaned, and I’ve finally caught up with the laundry.  Although we visited the laundromat regularly while we were away, there always seems to be mountains of washing when we return home – of course the sheets and towels all added to the pile.  Just as well I quite enjoy being a washer woman!

Autumn has now arrived in my part of the world, so it was time for a seasonal change.  I’m really pleased with my little Autumn wall-hanging stitchery up on the ...

You Must Prove Yourself Brave, Truthful and Unselfish~The Blue Fairy from Humble Quilts

I've got a bit of a collection of Pinocchio, the first being an old wooden marionette of my moms.

Back in 1995 our library had a call for little wallhangings of  books to decorate the children's reading area. Of course I turned to my favorite character. 
Our library is undergoing a bit of an update and they called me asking if I'd like my quilt back. Well, sure, why not? 
Considering I took my first quilt class in 1993, I'm pretty impressed with my skills only 2 years into quilting!! 
 Good advice by the Blue Fairy ...

Slow Stitching Outside from Romany Quilting

It’s been nice to relax outside finishing off some slow stitching.  Our weather has been quite warm, too hot sometimes to sit out on the patio, so then I take myself off to the back of the house, where it is cooler and shady.  Much better to be in the shade on a really hot day, and I’ve been sitting down stitching the binding on  my Autumn Wall-hanging.

A seat in the cool of the shade

Our cat Gemma often joins me outside too.  On a hot day she heads straight to the rhubarb garden – it’s just ...

Sewing Fun from Thread Head

Today I was painting doors.

But at least I got to sew while waiting for paint to dry.

I quilted one of the wall hanging layers,

and started making holes in the other layer.

Photos from around-

 My son made a track for the puppy to have a run (she loves it).
 The hard packed snow looks and sounds like styrofoam.
Blowing snow at sunset.
Windy and cold.

Improv Tumbler Wall Quilt from African Wax Prints from Selvage Blog

This is one of my recent quilts in a series made with African wax prints, an improv tumbler design with a solid khaki (Kona) background. I source the fabrics on from sellers in Africa, the US and the UK. Buying a scrap bundle now and then adds even more variety to my collection.  Wax prints are a little bit shiny and stiff, but soften with washing. The fabrics come with large stickers attached. Sometimes it's hard to get the stickers off, and then there's the adhesive to deal with. So I just cut around the sticker ...

Another Quilt! from Thread Head

This year I wanted to try to get back into blogging - it's been wonderful. I am remembering all the things I like about blogs, and why I got started. The one thing I forgot was how inspirational they are. I thought this year I wouldn't start any new quilting projects, but reading blogs and seeing so many beautiful things, I just couldn't resist!

This is the start of a wall hanging that I saw on a blog tutorial. Should just be a quick project and then I will get back to my other works-in-progress.... Squirrel!
