Another milestone reached. All 10 rows sewn, now to sew them together into the final top! And for a little “snack” break, I bought a couple of really cute kits from Hatched and Patched.
72 nine inch blocks completed! I got a notification from my photo app that i started printing the shapes on fabric FOUR YEARS AGO. It’s fine. We're here now and I’ve already begun sewing the first row together.
I’ve stalled a bit on this quilt, so decided I needed to see what the final top would look like. I laid out most of the completed blocks on the spare bed to get an idea. Laying it out helped a lot. I like the way it’s looking. For a while there, I wasn’t sure… Continue reading Storm at Sea progress
So about a decade ago, I ordered this kit from Alabama Chanin. It is still unfinished and to distract myself from starting new projects, I'm looking at it again. The original design was allover Le Moyne stars, but I've departed from that idea before. I reopened my EQ file and I've settled on this design.… Continue reading Indigo Star Quilt Revisited

To the point where hubby refused to put it around his neck when I needed him to hold it for me. He was right, it was disgusting. I found some really… Continue reading Camera strap cover
I'm planning two quilts for my boy. A clamshell and a compass star quilt. I've made a start on the clamshell because it will be a smaller "baby" quilt even though he is more kid than toddler these days. I started off with this print that I bought last year and added some homespun colours.… Continue reading Clamshell quilt
How is it already October?! My last update was quite a while ago. I need to figure out how to post automatically from Instagram so that it doesn't happen again! I'm working on several different projects, but here's an update on the Advent Calendar. I have 16 ornaments decorated with sequins and beads. Eight to… Continue reading Time in a bottle
I decided to order some 4mm flat sequins, so when they finally arrive from China (hopefully within a month), I'll start embellishing!
So I started making this advent calendar in the last week of November. As if there was even the slightest chance I would have it done in time for Christmas 2017! But at least it'll be ready for Christmas this year. Better late than never? Other instagrammed photos of progress:
