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.
Storm at Sea milestone
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
Indigo Star Quilt Revisited
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
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
Indigo Star Variations
Yeah. Because it's not enough to make the blanket according to the original instructions. And actually, because I opted to use Inklingo to create the shapes, it's already different and adding a few more of my own choices make the blanket truly my own. Right? Right!So I recreated the original pattern in EQ7 so I… Continue reading Indigo Star Variations
I should be making new clothes for myself (Liesl + Co is 25% off today!) or for the kid, or sorting my scraps, or finishing a quilt that was started for someone not in my life anymore. Should. But my sister has been waiting for her promised quilt for a decade now. So I'm prepping… Continue reading Next!
Winding Ways completed and delivered
So I finally finished this quilt! Technically, I finished this on September 29th, but I've been slow to post because I had a minor disaster with my photos. I lost the majority of my photos from our recent trip to Hawai'i and the quilt photos were amongst the lost files. I've finally given up on… Continue reading Winding Ways completed and delivered
2 corners done, 2 to go
Not much to say other than this quilt will be done very, very soon!
My October deadline is looming, but I put my head down and got the quilting done! And the binding made and machine-sewn on! You can still see the blue lines I drew for the inner circles of quilting. Can't find my spray bottle, so I'll soak it in cold water after I sew down the binding… Continue reading Quilting complete!
So here are a few photos of the quilting done so far. Do you think I should add another inner circle of quilting? Technically, I think this enough quilting for the batting, but I do feel that it could use more from an aesthetic point of view.
