Progress Report: pulled the papers from the top four flowers, because it was getting too difficult to maneuver, so it's looking pretty wrinkly and dark up there (carpet showing through). This marks the halfway point of a quilt filled with fabric I've used elsewhere in the house. Some @modafabrics geometric prints, some @charleyharperart and @birchfabrics from my son's quilt and the #talltalesfabric from a a sleeveless tunic I made for my daughter. It won't win any prizes, but it will keep my people warm. ❤️ #quiltersofinstagram#quilt#quilts#scrappyquilt#hexies#hexiequilt#hexielove#charleyharper
I don't have the right coloured threads for my next solstice dream block, so have been working on the sampler quilt. Too hot for sewing now that the rain has stopped, so I'm retiring for the evening with a long cold G & T and a new magazine.
I’ve been seeing a lot of other makers post about organizing their scrap bins by separating each color into individual bags, which I think is brilliant. ✨ So I’m jumping on the bandwagon..hoping this will encourage me to use my scraps more cause I’m great about collecting them but not utilizing them. Just the task of sorting it all out already has me brainstorming a scrappy quilt to start 🤔 Any suggestions? Or maybe I’ll just do some random play and make a scrap mini quilt?
Trying out newly learned foundation paper piecing and free motion quilting skills! Completely random fabric scraps just so I could try out the techniques. Fun! But I need more practice :) #quiltsofinstagram#quiltstagram#scrappyquilt
So I may have just signed up to make @suedaleydesigns new BOM Windchime!! I needed a new hand piecing project and this one caught my attention!! I can’t wait until the first month arrives!! All papers, templates and fabrics are included!! Yeah!!
My letters so far, testing for @crankykangaroo for the #boldandbeautifulalphabet 😁😎 great way to use up some scraps or showcase some fun fabrics. And please excuse the potato quality of the first pic, I'm was excited to lay them out regardless of the crappy lighting 😝 😏
Not a recent finish, but I forgot to take pictures of this cute little quilt until now! This quilt top of my own design is pieced entirely from scraps from other quilts and white edges of printed fabrics. Love that they were transformed into something usable, even if it took loads more time to sew because of the different sized scraps!
Every scrap tells a story. 📖 I *finally* used this small, solitary scrap of the original @heatherrossinsta mermaids - it will be the only diagonal seam in this quilt. I wrote more about using the most "precious" scraps (cue the Gollum whine) on the blog today. What do you do with your precious ones? #improvquilting#scrappyquilt#brickbybrickimprov#heatherross
A little pink and green experiment using the #scrappytrip method and adding in cream. I just had an urge for a pink quilt and hope it does tempt fate for my pending Nanna friends! I've cracked open some long hoarded @heatherbailey fabrics which are just a delight to work with. #pinkandgreenscrappytrip#scrappyquilt#scrappytripquilt
True story 1️⃣: I painted my nails specifically to take this picture .
True story 2️⃣: you really can’t even tell, can you? .
True story 3️⃣: painting your nails prior to pinbasting two quilts is a really stupid idea. 🙄🙄🙄
Joining @myteaandbrie for #saturdaynightcraftalong with an overdue baby #quiltburger and enjoying that crisp winter sun.
Finished the first panel of curtains for my daughter’s bed. She shares a room with her brother, and the last couple weeks, she has started hanging blankets on her bed so her brother doesn’t bother her at night. She’s been sleeping so much better, so we decided to make some curtains as a permanent solution. Because little brothers are jerks, as we all know. #quiltersofinstagram#scrappyquilt#kidsruineverything
