I finished this quilt last night. This quilt can either be for a baby or an adult as a lap quilt, or just hang nicely over a chair. The colours used are mostly low volume prints, mixed in with a few stronger colours for contrast. I have used fabrics from some of my all time favourite designers such as Amy Butler, Urban Chics, Lotta Jansdotter, Michael Miller, Heather Bailey and Sandra Henderson.
Finished size is 35.5 x 46″ – or – 89cm x 115cm
This quilt has just been listed in my Etsy shop, you can find it here!
In the middle of the Christmas rush I try to get up early, around 5am, light a candle, turn on some music and do a little bit of sewing. It’s a nice way to start the day and I find I get a fair bit done in those two hours before the day really starts. I have selected fabrics for my next quilt, all in blues, greens & lemony yellow. I hope it will turn out like I imagine it will.
Today I finished this little scrappy Baby /Lap Quilt that I have been working on this week. This quilt measures 80cm x 105cm or 32”x 42” and would make a beautiful gift for a baby girl or lap quilt for an adult. It’s modern and bright, handmade with 100% quilting quality cotton, 100% cotton batting and thread. I have listed it for sale in my Etsy store which you can find here!
Some of the Fabric designers used in this quilt are: Alexander Henry, Denyse Schmidt, Amy Butler, Aneela Hoey, Heather Bailey, Heather Ross, Urban Chics, Moda, Riley Blake & Lotta Jansdotter. It features pictures of dogs, fish, birds, apples, pears, bicycles, flowers and polka dots.
I finished cutting my latest project yesterday morning and starting piecing it together. It is the first project I have done in my new Sewing Room and it felt good! I feel inspired in there and finally a spot that I can just walk away from and not have to see the mess when I’m not sewing.
Last week I moved all my sewing and craft supplies into our empty laundry, as our laundry is located in our shed. It took me hours moving everything and setting it up. I still have a few more things to sort, but they can wait in boxes for me till I feel in the mood to unpack them. Anyway, this is how my new sewing studio turned out:
I have reduced my fabric stash by about a third over the last year, most of it I have sold on eBay. When I unpacked what I have left, it still seems like I have too much. Meh. I either will have to start sewing like a crazy or start selling again…
Life is forever pulling me in different directions it seems. No matter how busy I get, I never stop thinking of sewing really. If I can’t sleep, I think of something I might sew one day. If I wake up too early, I sit and look at sewing blogs, sewing on Pinterest or new releases of fabric. Sometimes I just look through my fabric collection and search for the motivation to start a new project. Last night I starting cutting out fabrics for a new Baby Quilt. This one will be a scrappy quilt with lots of my favourite fabrics from over the years.
