Like many crafters I have a queue of projects on the go and planned into the future. Actually my future project wishlist is a little out of control!
But here is a peek at some of the materials I hope to be working with in the next month
I love the Boho range – this will be a quilt and maybe some placemats with the scraps.
English Paper Piecing and Hexies, this will be a labour of love. I’m hoping that the plan in my head will come together in the execution of this one.
Completed two quilt tops over the past few days. Pretty pleased with that effort.
Charlies’ Play Quilt
And the Patchwork Chevrons, which I think will end up as a couch or bed throw.
A little while ago a lovely friend of mine had a sweet baby called Charlie. I decided to make a quilt to welcome him to the world and have been a little sidetracked until now. My plan is now to get it done before he starts crawling (so I have some time up my sleeve).
A sweet little cot sized quilt made from the Apple Jack line from Moda.
Cappuccino decided to help during the planning phase.
A little chain piecing and the centre panel was done! So quick, I never knew what I was missing until I tried it, chain piecing saves an bundle of time.
It was a fine windy dry season day here in the tropics so I popped the quilt in the machine for a wash and line dry. My darling Mr decided to hang it out for me as I was dealing with a sick Master 2.
Needless to say we had a chat about hanging quilts out on the line when I eventually made it downstairs to find this…..
Which resulted in the nice clothes line mark you see in this (which is also my first picture of the pieced back – looks pretty good I think!)
All’s well that ends well – lesson learnt and I am grateful for the Mr as he really is a good egg.
Just in case you thought I had forgotten! (Well I kind of forgot to blog it, but I didnt forget to sew it!)
My first ever Jelly Roll Race Quilt top is done and waiting for a back before I can finish it off.
I am quite pleased – love the colour combo and its a super easy quilt top.
Should be the next to be quilted, and will be good for some straight line quilting practice.
And so on to the next project!
Chevrons are everywhere right now and this is a quick and easy quilt I am piecing up using this tutorial from the Moda Bake Shop http://www.modabakeshop.com/2012/01/patchwork-chevron-quilt.html
Progress so far
And a play with the layout
This will be sit in the UFO pile for a bit, while I wait for my free motion quilting foot to arrive. I’m a little excited to give FMQ a crack!
So being house bound with illness seems to have sped up the binding process significantly this week.
Here are a couple of quick photos taken at home, when I am feeling better I will get outdoors and do a few ‘finally done’ photos.
And one of my blog name sake – just because.
