This week on Instagram

This week on Instagram, I've mostly been working on a quilt which combines dresdens with a version of the Irish chain pattern using Vintage Picnic by Bonnie and Camille for Moda Fabrics.  This was the point it reached last night and I always like to take a photo of a quilt top (albeit in pieces) when I can lay the whole thing out as one to see whether I think it is working.  I took this photo last night as I had been unsure, until that point, as to whether the white centres to the dresdens were going to make the quilt look too stark.   Once I'd taken this snap, I was happier that the white centres looked as though they were going to work OK.

I've also been working on a re-make of my Penguin Books quilt.  The original was made using Kona solids a few years ago and this updated version will be made using Melba by Emma Jean Jansen for Ella Blue Fabrics.  I am hoping that the quilt will work as well in prints as it was did solids.  


And finally I had a quilt sale a couple of weeks ago and Kellie from Plus Addict sent me a lovely photo of her wrapped up in two quilts she bought from me in that sale.  I can't tell you how much I love seeing quilts in their new homes - it always makes me smile!

This week on Instagram

This week on Instagram has mostly been about four quilts I've been making for Makower.  They will all become free downloads on the Makower website.  They are made from four upcoming lines: Sea View, Bohemia, Vintage Journal and Flo's Friends. 

I also finished the next mini for the Sew Hot mini quilt club using Modern Backgrounds by Zen Chic for Moda fabrics which is one of my favourite lines of this year.  

And finally the new Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine arrived with my quilt and pillow in it made using Maker by Art Gallery Fabrics which is also one of my favourite lines of the year.
