Modern HST Sampler QAL

If you pop on over to Blossom Heart Quilts today, you’ll find the block I have designed for the Modern HST Sampler QAL! Formation is a super simple block, aptly named as it reminds of the formation of a flock of birds!  Or Beyonce.  You choose! I cracked open my F8 bundle of Carolyn Friedlander’s Carkai range for this little baby, and then convinced myself I had enough time to fit in another QAL for 2016….. so here are the other blocks in … Continue Reading »

TGIFF – A Finish is A Finish!

Ever have those weeks when you just feel like you’re never going to sit down and do something you actually WANT to do?  Yup.  I’ve just finished one of those!  All I wanted to do was sew today, but apparently children needing to get to school, groceries needing to be done, vacuuming, washing and website fixing – they all had to be done first!  But once they were sorted, I got to it….. I bound Cadyn’s Improv quilt, but could only manage this … Continue Reading »

Bright Sky QAL – Ms Nightshade

A few months ago, Alyce from Blossom Heart Quilts asked me if I would be interested in joining her Bright Sky Quilt Along?  Sure, I said.  No problem, I said.  And really, it wasn’t a problem – I just got my skates on and got the quilt top made incredibly fast! Seriously, this is a super quick pattern to put together! But I then had to leave it languish in my pile of WIP’s, because, Tokyo. Anyway – today is my stop on … Continue Reading »

Sea Breeze Mini QAL – It’s My Turn!

If I’m to be honest, a mini quilt QAL was the last thing I had in my sights a few months ago, but who was I to knock back a spot on Gnome Angel’s list??   I procrastinated for quite some time after buying the pattern, because I was trying desperately to figure out how I could make this little mini in to something that reflected my own style and my own “vision”??  Ok, does that sound stooooopid?  Anyway…..  After before-mentioned procrastination, I … Continue Reading »

W.I.P. #15 – Bloom Bloom Pow!

Another W.I.P. Wednesday on a Thursday – It’s Wednesday somewhere in the world!?! This week saw me embarking on my first ever QAL (quilt along for those who just raised an eyebrow).  I’m joining in with Lee from Freshly Pieced, and making her Bloom Bloom Pow quilt. It took me much thinking, over thinking and then a bit more thinking to finally decide on which fabrics I would use.  And also which size I would make.  I ended up opting for the Cocoon … Continue Reading »
