12 blocks completed for a twin size Free-Wheeling Single Girl. My sweet Finny had been missing for three weeks. He came home very skinny yesterday & meowed loudly outside the window in front of my sewing machine as I was working on my squares. This SAL has been my outlet for the anxiety of potentially losing him. I’m so grateful to have my sweet little buddy home where he belongs. I added a Finny square today to remember the journey of this quilt. @dsquilts @sewtopia #freewheelingsinglegirlsal #freewheelingsinglegirlsewalong #freewheelingsinglegirl#freewheelingsinglegirlquilt#tildafabric#essexlinen @portsmouthfabricco #mainecoon
This #cabinquilt is one of my favorite quilts I have ever made and it will be showing at the @portlandmqg showcase this Thursday! Hopefully it still looks crisp and fresh after living on my son’s bed since the pattern was released this summer! 😬😂 The pattern is available in my shop! 💙 #quiltaposypatterns#quiltaposy lovely quilting by @47stitches
Finished these #landerpants yesterday 😍 pattern by @truebias highly recommend, very well written! Love the fit! Inspired by @thomas_threads eggplant #essexlinen she used! Added a touch of #libertylondon lining to pockets!😍Wearing my @nellietaft shirt and ready to start a bible study with a couple friends/sisters from church, with @hayley.e.morgan new book #preachtoyourself Note to self for next pair: Added 3in to length and hemmed 3” per instructions. After I added waistband it gaped a bit in the back, so I added two darts in waistband to compensate. Essex “relaxes” well!
I woke up this morning to the timeless cosy sound of hammering rain on the roof and the realisation that for the first time in weeks, probably months, we had nowhere we had to be. 10 years ago, with three kids under 5, we thought life was busy. Now with three between 10 and 15 it feels even busier. It’s a welcome buzz, kids coming and going, the fridge door squeaks, phone in hand as they bash out the front door with rucksacks and sports bags. But that indulgent feeling of a rainy Sunday, poached egg breakfasts and a roast for tea, leaves 🍁 falling with the rain, what’s nicer? I’m making a start on a new project that I’ve been pondering and researching since the summer, it feels great to potter with @bbcradio4 and the rain as the soundtrack, a wet dog gently steaming dry under the table. #bergenquilt#essexlinen#rosemåling#libertyfabric#appliquequilt#imintheguild#qgbiregion7

Really enjoyed seeing so many triumphant finishes and everyone who even made 1 block deserves a mahoosive 👏👏. Thank you for all the comments and encouragement .. makes the world of difference. Now to sew the beast together. (Used @carolynfriedlander Fabrics and #essexlinen throughout- but barely made a dent in my stash)Xx
Quilt Facing! Lots of questions about this binding method so I thought I would overshare some photos! 💥TUTORIAL LINK IN PROFILE💥 Quilt facing is one of my most favorite new methods of finishing these days. It’s such a clean finish and for patterns that are complex sometimes traditional binding feels not quite right to me. I found myself binding quilts in whatever was my background fabric to help it fade into the mix but quilt facing takes it altogether out of the picture and flips your finishing to the back side of the quilt. It’s sort of like choosing a photo canvas instead of photo framing. I hope lots of people try it out and let me know if you have any questions!!!

Happy Saturday!!! Today feels sooooo good after such a stressful crazy week 🙌🏼 roof is patched ☑️, will worry about the rest after our trip. The weather cooled way off and we took it super easy. I spent today hand stitching the facing into this beauty and ITS DONE!!!! 💥 Wooo!!! 💥 I feel like the facing suits this pattern SO well. So clean! This quilt is now for sale and listed in the shop 👌🏼 it’s going to be insanely snuggly soft because it’s made almost entirely out of linen. Link in profile to shop quilts or bundles and also to see the quilt facing tutorial! Thanks so much for sending me all the kind words and well wishes this week!!! I’m feeling incredibly thankful that things weren’t worse, that we and our community here are safe, and sending out all the healing good vibes to everyone who was hit even harder than we were ❤️❤️❤️ #foragefabric#konasolids#suzyquiltspatterns#modernfansquilt#linenquilt#essexlinen#quiltingcurves#quiltfacing#quiltingtutorial#modernfanssa
