May is for makers

I am going to join the May is for makers campaign started by Lindsey at LRstitched.


May Is For Makers | LRstitched.com

My first buy is the Austin Modern quilt pattern from Carolinasquirrel. I love it and cant wait to start it. Some colours need more than a fat quarter so I will probably have to wait! I am going to go through my stash later today.

Mini Wonky Quilt

My husband loved the quilt I made for my brother so I made him a mini in the same fabrics for our wedding anniversary. It will hang on the wall in my sewing room so it is a joint anniversary gift!
I used the tutorial for a wonky mini charm at Twiggy and Opal. I love Jayne's work and find myself wanting to make all her tutorials.

Another WIP

The last thing I need is to start a new project. But I did. I bought a layer cake of Horizon and some Kona to make a cross quilt based on the Across the Sea quiltalong. I have had this fabric for ages and I decided I wanted to sew with some gorgeous fabric that I loved. So I am.

WIP

One of two quilts for my brothers twins. The pattern is a freebie by Me and My Sister Designs using a jolly bar. I bought a layer cake and cut it in half. I am using Me and My Sister Designs fabric too

Mini Trees


I have been wanting to make a trees quilt by Amanda Jean at crazy mom quilts for ages. When she put her patterns on sale recently I had to buy one. However I forgot that I decided not to buy the mini because my accuracy is not great and small pieces are not good for me. But after some trimming my tree is almost in the middle! The great thing about this pattern is that the tree uses less than a charm square so I could make this to match minis I have previously given a friend! I also think I could do this block heaps better next time. I am seriously considering making a mini using more blocks.

The fabric is an old Tula Pink my friend will love.

Cushions from way back

I forgot to take a photo of these cushions I made for Peter. I am staying at his house so I have a chance to show them now. His house is grey with pops of red so I try and use these colours when making things for him.

Edited to add. I forgot to mention my inspiration for these was from a wall hanging by the Silly BooDilly. I prefer her one colour but these go well in his house.

Grungy Gran

I finished mums quilt and will publish this on Sunday. The pattern is Grunge and is free on the moda website. I love how it looks and want to make it in batiks.


I took a few photos in different light outside to try and show the gorgeous colours. I am posting this now. The party is this afternoon so I don't think Mum will be surfing the net this morning.
