• So Many Changes

    It’s been nearly 6 month since I last wrote here and so much has changed, quilts have been made and yarn has been turned in to crochet blankets. Halloween came and went and with it my health went too, some sort of arthritis kicked in to knock me on my butt. Ankles were bad enough …

  • Pixelated Heart quilt

    I received an order through my Etsy shop for a custom rainbow pixelated heart quilt. It is going to be given as a wedding gift 🙂 I love knowing what happens to the quilts I make when they go out the door!  So out came the Sizzix, and what felt like a million charms were cut. 213 …

  • Etno Baby Quilt

    This sweet baby quilt was originally whipped up to be a class sample for a beginners quilt making class that I was teaching at Sewing Machine Sales in Whitley bay The classes have gently wound down for the summer and will start up again in the Autumn, so this little quilt has made its way home.    …

  • Another Low Volume Lovely

    I finished this quilt, frankly, yonks ago. December if memory serves, hence the muted winter colours in both the quilt and the photos. That serpentine quilting stitch adds such a great texture to quilts. I only have one progress photo of this quilt, I think I took it to check the block layout looked right …

  • Florette quilt

    On the 14th I taught a lovely one day workshop at the shop, Jeni’s Florette quilt pattern is a delightful quilt to make & I am totally smitten with it!   Like the fool I am, I totally forgot to take any photos of the class so instead you get the treat of seeing the one …

  • Modern building blocks by Moda is now a brick short!

    I will admit it, I jumped on the Moda Modern Building Blocks pattern like a pattern crazed, fabric hoarder when it came onto my quilty radar (months after everyone else had bought and started making theirs!)  Lovely blog readers I paid £14 for a pattern, made one block out of it and stalled. I do …

  • Scrappy postage stamp quilt

    This quilt started, unbeknownst to me, when my Sizzix arrived. I had ordered the dies I thought I would get the most use out of a 2.5″ square and a 4.5″ square (The collection has since grown!) and merrily and mostly without a clue what I was going to make with them started chopping up …

  • New-ish year New focus

    Well a whole lot of things have happened since Novembers post, not least of which was Him in Doors popped the question! I am now a fiancé, sounds rather grown up doesn’t it! We’ve been pootling along merrily for years, with the odd sarcastic comment thrown in by me about my unwedded status when he …

  • Citrus rush!

    After plowing through my scrap bin it turns out I had rather a few larger chunks of citrus-y type fabrics, so whats a girl to do but make a quilt with them!  I adapted the Turning Twenty quilt pattern I love so much and used each scrap for only 1 or 2 of the pieces rather than …
