It's a big and beautiful quilt to cheer up my Monday morning. These jewel like tones would brighten up anyone's day.  Irish Autumn pattern by the #thesewingshed #nikkifoleyquilter #nikkifokey #sewtoday
This beautiful quilt was made by @annlanders60 using The Sewing Shed trip around Kerry pattern  I have to say it's one of my favourites, I just love the colours. I think I might have to make one  #quiltsofinstagram #quilting #nikkifoleyquilter #triparoundtheworld #blueandlilac #patches #myquilltinglife #quiltshop #irishquilter #irelandquilt
Festive table runner complete πŸ™Œ
Have you got quilt tops need to be quilted? I am happy to do it for you! Quilting can be done as edge to edge design or custom quilting like those.  Contact me if you are interested.  #quiltingservices #customquilting #specialquilt #quilting #irishquilt #irishquilter #ireland #carlow #wicklow #kildare
You know the way we quilters can have dry skin on our hands from handling so much fabric?  Well this is the solution for me. It’s made here in Ireland and is completely natural. The hand cream is also lovely. Smells like lemon balm.  I’m not paid to promote this product I just think it’s lovely. #quilting #quiltsofinstagram #irishquilter #irishquilter @biabeautyskincare
Late in starting my Xmas pressie makes this year (my life at the mo 😡) This was going to be a festive table runner for a pal who loves to entertain. The plan was to make it an up-cycling project, since the white fabric was curtain lining in a former life. It has been a complete nightmare to work with though! Curling when ironed and fraying like a mo'fo' 😩 This block took WAY longer to make than it ought to have. I'm going to restart using something less troublesome and this shall henceforth become a festive pot rest 😁
Finished baby quilt πŸ’ƒ Swipe to see the front (or back, depending on preference) and the detail. Hand binding 4eva πŸ’•
Building my crazy quilted garden.
I improvised with the back of this baby quilt so now it's reversible! In other news: I'm still obsessed with @riflepaperco's magical Wonderland line 🐰❀️ #irishquilter #wingingit #modernquilt #babyquilt #fabricaddict #quiltersofinstagram
After four months of fussy cuttin' this baby quilt I'm making for a dear friend took what seemed like five minutes to whip up πŸ’«πŸ‘Š
I had grand plans to make a quilt for the River of Dreams Quilt Exhibition in Limerick next month (next stop Quilt Market πŸ˜‰) but, you know, life etc. So instead, here's my 6" square contribution to the charity quilt for Novas. The final quilt will raffled off and the proceeds will go towards helping those experiencing homelessness. A good cause AND I get to dust off some rusty FPP skills. Win-win! πŸ™Œ
Block 12/48 #thefussycutsamplerqal2 bunnies and frogs and owls 😝 Hoping eventually to tie this random assortment of blocks together into one ✨ quilt. This three blocks a week challenge is just what I need πŸ‘Š
I agonised over fabric choices for this, block 8/48 #thefussycutsamplerqal2. And then I nearly go and chop off Mr Fox's face 😬 . . . #fussycuttingsewalong #fussycutting #fussycutfun #saturdaysewing #devilisinthedetail #quiltstagram #modernquilting #irishquilter
Block 7/48 is shaping up to be a fave! 🍸#thefussycutsamplerqal2
A somewhat busy block, but it's starting to grow on me... 6/48  #thefussycutsamplerqal2
Block 5/48 #thefussycutsamplerqal2 was a fun one to make. I even got to dip into a pile of @patbravodesign #indiefolk scraps 😝 And, whaddya know, NO PINK! Woot
Fave block so far! 4/48 for #thefussycutsamplerqal2 Turns out I have a ton of pink in my stash πŸ™€
Bunnies, blossom and blue! Block 3/48 #thefussycutsamplerqal2 Hoping the beautiful blossom plucked from my garden will distract from the mis-matched zigzags 😬
Block 2/48 for the #thefussycutsamplerqal2. Loving the pattern clash - something I would never normally attempt!
Total new girl at this quilt-along lark. Joining #thefussycutsamplerqal2 and snapping block 1 happened to coincide with the first sunny day we've had here in Ireland in over a week - it's a sign! One block down, 47 to go 😁 Oh, and I've no theme, unless stash busting counts...
If you (like me) have OCD, look away now πŸ™ˆ This is my attempt at complimentary geometrics (#block34). I've made my peace with the fact the triangle print doesn't line up, and I kinda like it. It was some challenge to get them all facing the same direction πŸ˜… . . . . #fussycutting #fussycutsampler #quiltasyougo #blockbyblock #sampler #learning #irishquilting #irishquilter #mamamaker #sewwhileshesleeps #goodfriday #friyay #fridayvibes #bringthesunshinein
I *had* to hand quilt this block (➑️ for a close-up). The detail in this @alisonglass for @andoverfabrics is just 😻I wanted to make it pop out a bit more. I'm just making blocks for the fun of it right now before moving onto the next long-term project... whatever that may be! . . . . #sundaysewing #wingingit #fussycutting #fussycutsamplerblock13 #fussycutsampler #quiltersofinstagram #quiltstagram #modernquilting #irishquilting #irishquilter #mamamaker #sewwhileshesleeps #stashbusting #makersgonnamake
When it feels like winter will never end, break out the tropicals 😎 Love this book, The Fussy Cut Sampler.

Eek! It looks 😝Pardon me for blowing my own trumpet😚🎺 I'm delighted with how my quilt baby is turning out. Totally worth binding by hand even though my thumb is blistered; the process is speedier than I expected and almost meditative. Almost done! . . . . #quiltbaby #ribbonstarquilt #firstfullsizequilt #handbinding #worththewait #needlecraft #quiltstagram #quiltersofinstagram #irishquilter #irishquilting #mamamaker

Progress! Might leave this as is at about 13" square. Cushion (pillow) will be on the small side, but what the heck! Thinking straight line quilting and a blue chambray or navy for the reverse πŸ€” . . . . #quiltsofinstagram #quiltstagram #quiltedcushion #quiltedpillow #sewwhileshesleeps #mamamaker #quiltersgonnaquilt #irishquilting #irishquilter #stashbusting #homedecor #homemade #oneofakind
The weather here in Ireland today was pretty grim, so I decided to bring the sunshine in! β˜€οΈ Not 100% sure where I'm going with this lil improv piece, although it's more than likely destined to become a pillow / cushion cover. Because one can never have enough of those, let's face it! πŸ’ . . . . #improvquilting #irishquilting #irishquilter #modernquilt #quiltsofinstagram #quiltersofinstagram #quilting #makersgonnamake #sewwhileshesleeps #mamamaker #irishcrafter #sewjo
Still in love with these fabric heart coasters I made a little while back ❀️ Easy-peasy make, ideal for a newbie sewist or quilter.

After a two-month sewing drought, I found my experimental EPP bits 😝 Yes, I could've made an entire (baby) quilt by now :/ . . . . #ohwell #handsewing #epp #experimental #eppalldaylong #sewingwithdrawals #makersgonnamake #mamamaker #irishquilter #irishcrafter #sewhappy
Obsessed with this magnificent pile of liberty scraps.

I was obviously a very good girl in 2017.

December, you say? πŸ€” The warm weather here in Texas has me feeling anything but Christmassy. Breaking' out the festive mug (and this FPP accidental mug rug) in an attempt to join the party πŸŽ… #hohoho #christmasvibes #forciblyfestive #fpp #quiltersofinstagram #irishquilter #mamamaker #mugrug
Not much #sewwhileshesleeps going on lately due to teething πŸ€“(she hasn't BEEN sleeping) but I finally managed to finish this #wip the other evening.

I'm a little late to the Christmas stocking party as I've been mega busy packing for an epic move across the Atlantic 😝 Not a bad effort so far, given I had to send on 95% of my fabric stash 😫 Here's hoping we will be reunited in a month's time πŸ™ . . . . . #homemadechristmas #handmadechristmas #christmasstocking #madewithlove #wip #irishquilter #epp #paperpiecing #futureheirloom #mamamaker #sewwhileshesleeps

Cute car air freshener with essential oil-infused batting. Cool stocking-filler, no? The first one turned out pretty well (lemon-scented, obvs :) but a few tweaks necessary before it's gift-worthy. Now to go through the rest of my oils to see what other shapes there might be πŸ€” . . . . #handmadechristmas #uniquegifts #oneofakind #stockingfiller #madewithlove #sewnwithlove #mamamaker #sewwhileshesleeps #irishquilter #makemodern #practicalandpretty #practicalgifts
I started my first full-size quilt the afternoon I went into labour. 9 long months, 30 blocks, two sewing machines and two bottom teeth later, it's finally all laid out and ready to piece πŸ˜πŸ˜…πŸŽ‰#ninelongmonths #ribbonstarquilt #ribbonstar #quiltingnewbie #irishquilter #mamamaker #sewwhileshesleeps #firstfullsize #bloodsweatandtears #laboroflove #madewithlove #quiltersofinstagram #modernquilting #modernquilt #quiltstagram
#myprecious chambray goes with EVERYTHING πŸ’• @theclothpocket has the most amazing selection but if you know of elsewhere I can stock up, I am all ears! πŸ‘‚ I cannot get enough 😝#wheretheresajilltheresachambray #missingmarket @gogokim @thesewingloft @persimondreams  #quiltersofinstagram #modernquilting #irishquilter
First (and last) ever Instagram selfie. Gutted to be #missingmarket. I unwittingly double-booked myself :/ #fivethingsaboutme, here goes: * I've lived in London, Turkey, Ireland and I'm now just outside Austin, TX. We'll be settling back in Ireland later this year and I cannot wait 😝 * I cosmic ordered my husband (true fact). * Though I learnt to sew as a child, my amazing nana-in-law taught me to quilt. She's still my go-to for inspo and advice πŸ€“ * I'm a qualified yoga teacher πŸ™ and I've been practicing for 20 years πŸ™€πŸ‘΅ * I became a mom earlier this year to a darling dynamo daughter πŸ’• . . . #reluctantselfie #quiltingnewbie #texastransplant #modernquilter #quiltersofinstagram #irishquilter #mamamaker
I think this experimental piece of FPP is destined to become a mug rug. Whaddya think? . . . . #fppnewbie #fpp #foundationpaperpiecing #modernquilter #quiltstagram #quiltersofinstagram #modernmaker #mamamaker #sewwhileshesleeps #irishquilter #irishcrafter #handmadechristmas #repurposed #nowaste

I'm hand-making all my Christmas gifts this year πŸ™€ *gasp* Why? You ask. Head on over to the link in my bio (I've always wanted to say that) and all will be explained. Just 84 days to go 😬 I must be out of my tiny mind...
I made this lil pot rest/trivet as a first foray into EPP. Fun, fun, fun! So quick to make and the perfect gift. Fabric is from @becraftsy, a free charm pack (boundless ruby fleur) that wasn't quite my cup of tea. No filter - look at those berries!! 😍
Hexies and fussy cut fun this arvo. Little fingers making a grab for mummy's (previously) carefully laid out flay-lay 😬 I give up. This is as good as it's going to get! #hexies #scrapbuster #fussycutting #epp #eppnewbie #mamamaker #irishquilting #irishquilter #minimake

Experimental quilting 😬 Not sure if I like this stitch. I should probably quit while I'm ahead! Also, I spent the past 5 minutes looking for a bobbin I was convinced I had dropped - a bonafide choking hazard the bambino would locate in seconds. But it was already in the machine. Phew! Break time!! . . . . . #mamamaker #sewwhileshesleeps #quiltingfun #quiltingnovice #learnerquilter #irishquilting #irishquilter #pillowproject #minimake #miniquilt #makersgonnamake

Spring is here⚘⚘⚘To celebrate I've finished a wall hanging which just cries Spring to me. I've made this out of my favourite Bonnie and Camille fabrics and I used my @thimbleblossoms #miniquilt patterns.Mini Swoon, Mini Dwell, Mini Round and Round, Mini Vintage Tulips, Mini Clambake.No mini cakewalk so I improvised from the full size as I did with the centre blocks from the full size Vintage Tulip.
