Friday Finish

11 Jan

I finished up and quilted my place mats today – so pleased.

The front made with ‘Fall Back In Time – Moda’


And the back with some more fabric from my mum.


I love both:)

Have a great weekend.



Christmas Order Good to Go

13 Dec

Hello and Welcome.Apron M

I’ve been busy with Christmas orders this week.

A friend found this lovely fabric and wanted some aprons made out of it for her nieces.  The Z and M are appliqued on for the first initial of their names.  I think the fabric has made the aprons look just gorgeous:)

My give away is still going on over here.

Please enter it if you haven’t already, the more the merrier.

Liberty Cup Cake Aprons

12 Jun

I made these aprons yesterday, using up some liberty fabric scraps I had left over from my very first quilt.

Some exciting news too – all the LMQG mini quilts are showing in the John Lewis Store Oxford Street London.  Check out the post on the London Modern Quilt Guild for a photo of them – do you see mine?


Fleece Flares, Hats and ‘Hoodies’

23 Feb

I have been reading a great book set in North America in the early 70’s and felt inspired to use some of the floral fleece which I’ve been holding onto for an age to make some funky flares for my daughter.  Here is a pair already made.  Love them and want to make more.  I also made a little fleece jumper  for ‘the girl’ and a hat for my son.  Fleece is an easy material to work with and because of its fluffy thickness you can get a good finish quickly.  I would like to do some tutorials on these,but I can’t see myself doing any of those this side of the week, with half term madness going on!

A slightly hidden front pocket – a bit crooked – erhum:)  In too much of a rush – me thinks.

The fleece hat is hiding as the shy boy is not wanting to model it for the camera – maybe I can catch him unawares when we leave the house sometime soon.  Watch out for the ‘undercover’ paparazzi son!!
