Picking flowers from the garden is such a lovely way to start the morning! Especially when I have a little Dear Jane progress to share. I've finally started joining the blocks in Row C! I'm celebrating the small stuff because this quilt is going to take FOREVER!
My holidays are over and normal activities resume today. The house is eerily quiet, and I have a ton of stuff to do, but first I'm planning my posts this fun challenge organised by @sarahashfordstudio and @sydneyrosedesigns I've printed off my prompt sheet and it's going to be a whole lot of fun. I have a terrible track record with challenges but hopefully that will change with this one! #greatbritishquilter #quiltchallenge #quiltersofinstagram #quilter
Just a few of the wonderful quilts on display at #foq2017 today. No particular order. No 1 is Bling by @twocatsquilts , nos 2 and 3 are @victoriafindlaywolfe No 4 is by Mary Turner, No 5 is Anne Beare, No 6 is A Year of Colour by Rebecca Handyside, No 7 is by Sarah @sarahashfordstudio , No 8 is called Division by Jennifer Ladbrook @thelilaccat and No 9 is Stratford upon Avon by Abi @cutandalter My apologies for the awful photo Abi. The sun was streaming in and too many people were admiring your work for me to get a good shot! As always I have come home totally inspired to make dozens of quilts and a bank balance a lot less healthy than when I arrived! #quilter #quiltsondisplay #quiltshow #quiltinspiration
It's almost a year since my Bee friends got together to swap our quilt tops, so I'm going all out to try and finish the quilting in this over the next few weeks. #weshouldbeesectioned #quiltbee #handquilting #aurifilthread #slowstitching #quilter #quiltersofinstagram
Joining Lucy @charmaboutyou for #saturdaynightcraftalong I have just finished the final block in Row C. I'm about 4 months behind and still have all the sashings to add to this Row. But tonight I'm celebrating the little milestones!🍸
Not my usual colour palette, but it's good to step outside of your comfort zone occasionally!
Attempting to share a photo of my progress on our #miniquiltbee without giving too much away, as we keep these as a surprise until the day we all get together to give the finished quilt tops to each other. Hopefully this will spark some curiosity and keep you all guessing! #quilt #quilter #quiltbee #hexies #paperpiecing
No sewing tonight, but I'm still joining Lucy @charmaboutyou for #saturdaynightcraftalong to share four of the six quilt tops that I made for #quiltsforgrenfell They have been long arm quilted and finished by the wonderful Emma @swiftquilting I believe over 1000 quilts have now been pledged in this amazing quilt drive. The organisers are doing such an amazing job and I'm so pleased to have been able to contribute
It has to be a good day if it starts with a bowl of freshly picked cherries from the garden and a new book from @aneelahoey Just need to make a quick cup of tea and that's me sorted for the morning!!
