Incremental Progress

Incremental Progress

Things are progressing, slowly and surely, on my Calico Rose quilt. Thanks  to Queen Victoria  we had a long weekend this past weekend. She may have died in 1901 but we still celebrate her birthday the best way possible with a day off of work.  With the extra day I was both able to relax […]

Sewing Progress

Sewing Progress

As I mentioned on Thursday I’m participating in the Friday Night Sew In with Wendy at Sugar-Lane. I did some sewing last night but, alas, I did not make as much progress as I hoped to make. However, I did manage to turn these: into something a little larger. They turned into a big pile […]

Getting Ready to Get Sewing

Getting Ready to Get Sewing

I’ve been dilly dallying the last few weeks with my sewing. I have had great intentions but just haven’t got to the sewing machine. So I signed up for the Friday Night Sew In to give myself a kick start. I want to make the  Calico Rose Quilt with a black background. The first picture […]

Oh where did this Quilt end up?

Oh where did this Quilt end up?

I was going through some quilting pictures and came across this one. Scarily I don’t remember making it and don’t remember where it got gifted to. A quilt forgotten but for some photographic evidence. How sad. The material in the centre is of dogs, surrounded by scrappy 9 patches and then a narrower plain border. […]

Swoon Quilt

Swoon Quilt

Made as a baby blanket for a coworker who was having their first baby and they didn’t find out which sex the baby was. What better than green and yellow – works for both boys and girls.This Swoon quilt is much more pastel and “soft” in colour than I normally go for. But it does […]

More Square Dancing

More Square Dancing

More of my Blue Idaho Square Dance scrappy quilt. And even more: And finally: A Bonnie Hunter Addicted to Scraps quilt block. Now “just” to quilt this generous Queen sized quilt. This blog entry  is linked at  Scraptastic Tuesday & Sew Cute Tuesday

Cinema at 7

Cinema at 7

I’m calling this my Cinema at 7 quilt as it’s 7 x 7 blocks. It is based on the Film at Five quilt from the Wedding Dress Blue blog. I of course made some changes to the original pattern from the Wedding Dress Blue blog. I changed the size of the small squares from 2.5″ […]

Bugs, Bugs, Bugs — Bug Jar Quil...

Bugs, Bugs, Bugs — Bug Jar Quilt

This quilt was so fun to make! I really enjoyed hunting down the different fabrics and learnt a lot making it. Another view of the same quilt. Posing with it is Mao, the cat I had at the time I made it. He was a very special cat even though he’s sitting by the quilt […]

Lariat for work

Lariat for work

As someone who sews I’ve been pretty ashamed of the state of  the lariat I use to hold my work ID card for quite some time.  Yet I continued to use it. Never really thought making a new one when it came to sewing time.   Pretty scuzzy looking isn’t it. Yet I continued to […]

Bluebird Park Baby Quilt

Bluebird Park Baby Quilt

I needed a project, to do today, that was quick and easy, and that wouldn’t stress me out. I didn’t want a high concentration project but rather one I could enjoy, see quick progress being made, and feel a good sense of accomplishment. Baby quilts are normally ideal for these sorts of moods. The Bluebird Park […]
