I have cut 96 squares (16×16cm, my final blanket will be ca 120×180cm) of various woven cottons. I’m trying to find the correct placement of them, and will hopefully start sewing the squares into strips this week! How exciting, and definitely my biggest project. 1 month ago
|Most of the top of my quick and dirty quilt has been done. This lap quilt is going to be used a lot, and probably will become quickly covered in cat fur, so I didn’t spend much time piecing and pinning to get the corners of the pieces to line up. It really is an easy quilt pattern!
The next step is to edge, then add the batting and backing, and then quilt it.|| 4 years ago
|Deciding on an easy quilt block pattern, and what colour threads to use is difficult! I have edged the quilt top, sewn a back, bought the padding and pinned it all together. It was the first time that my ironing board had been out in my current house, and we moved in ages ago! I hate ironing :-) It’s now ready to quilt, but I just have to make the last few decisions.
Progress was slowed, thanks to the nearby bushfire which resulted in us having to evacuate with the cats to a friend’s house (blogged here). Luckily the firefighters got this fire under control quickly, and we were able to return early the following morning. This particular fire burned 400 hectares, but no houses were lost. Unfortunately the other Victorian fires have cause so much loss of life and damage (blogged here). Hopefully from now on, the weather will remain cool and wet.|| 4 years ago
|It took many years, and a last burst of quilting to finish this quilt. Only one mistake, but seeing as it was fairly roughly sewn together (I hate pins, so never use them), I am very happy with how it turned out. It is a very simple quilt block design, but the colours work so well! | | 2 years ago
I have a strong passion for sewing and have been doing it since I was 15. I learned on my own and have most certainly created some weird stuff. Quilting is awesome and its amazing to make something warm and comforting out of literally strips of fabric. Quilts can be passed on from generations and is usually a very comforting thing.

Birdies for Spatz!
My first international order, and it was so much fun to make :)
It is quite an amazing feeling to know something I made will be loved and enjoyed on the other side of the world…
Thank you S for this lovely project – it was a pleasure to work with you :) 3 months ago
Flower garden, for my Mother-in-Law. She celebrated her birthday on New Year’s Eve, and I finished the quilt at exactly 22:40 on Dec. 31. It felt good to end the year with a finished project :) 4 months ago
I really want to make a quilt, after having seen so many lovely ones on various blogs. I really like this one, but would want to make bigger squares, and do some stitching on the individual squares to add some artsy to it. Quilting, however, seems to require an eye for accuracy which I neither have nor enjoy… 5 months ago
I had “start drawing” on my list, I started and am using the drawing to study quilt patterns. I will study colors, and decide what quilt pattern I want to make and start making blocks when I decide what pattern to use. 6 months ago
Ginger Love. My second order and one of my favourites. It was so much fun to applique the gingerbread men :) 6 months ago
