English Paper Piecing

I love a take with me project. Something small and easy to work on, on the go. Last year it was this. Waiting outside of ballet class, road trips, craft mornings with my ladies, you know everywhere. I was terrible at the start and in between photos but here she is finished, washed and oh so yummy. It crinkled so much in the wash, love it. The fabric was a jelly roll from my sister, AGES ago. I was so happy to just squeeze out enough star/hexi left over fabric for a border. Honestly the project was quick and a real saving grace for quite the year, thanks little quilt.

Happy Quilting.

Only Going Back Once, Maybe

So I know I said I wouldn't go back but... this one turned out so well. It in fact has started a whole new, renewed or what ever quilting mojo. I am able to focus, I like how things turn out and I am generally happier because of it, go figure. Anyways I have a big guy and he needed a little quilt. Love it. Appliques were created from the fabric designs. I just found a high resolution image on line, printed the image and traced the design onto my paper backed fusible web, easy peasey as my four year old would say.
Getting started.

The appliques turned out great, I think.

What a handsome little guy, love you.

Happy Quilting :)

Long Lost Quilter

Another big, cavernous gap in my blogging. Life has a way of slowing you down just when you need it. It will take forever to catch up, so I won't even try. Here is my latest project, a first and no pattern so there are vast improvements to make but my oldest daughter slept under it last night and now isn't that the point? Happy Quilting.
