In which I show pictures of a quilt finished in December, various quilt blocks for bees etc., and the quilt I intend to finish next.
(Also, yes. There is an air mattress propped up in the closet behind me. I didn’t want to take it to the basement after my sister was here in December, so it’ll probably stay there until she visits again in February. Though I’ll probably take the sheet off it one of these days…)
In which I show off the things I made for my most recent Instagram swap, the Saturday Night Craft Along Swap. I made a Kismet Trinket Box and a Cathedral Window Pincushion. The embroidery is from “Zakka Embroidery” by Yumiko Higuchi.
In which I show some embroidery from a pattern found in the book “Zakka Embroidery” by Yumiko Higuchi, a baby quilt quilted in a walking foot pattern shared by Melissa Marginet (@melissamarginet on Instagram) for the #walkingfootquiltalong, and a baby quilt made with Churn Dash blocks using OG Cotton + Steel fabrics from the Garland line and quilted by a new friend Brandy who lives here in YYC.
It has been a while… lots to show.
In which I obsess over bad weather (which came to nothing in my corner of town), show off a mini quilt made for me, as well as a mug rug, wrist pincushion, zipper pouch and stone pendulum, and then a bunch of quilt blocks.
The giant quilt block is called the Swoon block by Camille Roskelley of Thimble Blossoms, but it can also be found online called a Dutch Rose block, because it’s a traditional block that she reworked to a different size and with a different method to made. The Plus blocks are the Japanese x and + block.
In which I show many, many things including three fabric postcards (only one made by me), a paper-pieced Schitt’s Creek fandom pillow, a bunch of bee blocks – from an Instagram bee called the True North Bee and from our very own TTMT “bee” using Jennifer’s log cabin pattern, a quilt along I’m working on, a mini quilt/cushion cover made using a single block from the Centre Stage pattern, a fabric basket, two zipper pouches, and an organizer.
This is a little bit choppy because I had to cut out so much in order to get it a more manageable length.. it’s still super long (~15 minutes even though I cut out 7 full minutes)… but I haven’t posted since February, so I guess I was due.
