I Spy finished, and a new project.



I had fun quilting this I Spy quilt.
Each four patch block is quilted differently. I thought this was a great quilt to try out the rulers that I've had but been too scared to use.


If I could just control the ruler better, less slipping, I think I could get to love them more. ...like everything it's all about practice.   Clam shells and waves were fun to do.

Outlining the smiling hearts adds a fun touch too..... But think our little fella will love this play on quilt...💕

Back to my beautiful CW fabrics for this new project. I saw this quilt block in a book, but no template patterns, so I made my own on my EQ7 . I wasn't sure about the melon background fabric, a little too big / busy maybe....... but I'm really trying not to buy any fabric. The think it will work overall.

It's very cold here...Hope your warm and cosy or nice and cool wherever you are.
Have a lovely week....

Hugs Julia 💕

Lois's beautiful vintage doily quilt....


Dear quilting friend Lois is making this beautiful vintage doily quilt in the "Quilt as you go " method.
Lois has secured the doilies onto a neutral background by hand, setting each block in their colour and similar embroidery design.
Some doilies will slightly  overlap seams....it will be stunning.
I'm sure there's a story behind each doily.....if only these doilies could talk. 

Hope you're having a great week..

Holly Hobbie finished....and a new flimsy...

Holly Hobbie finished, just need to wash and block it now. Happy to say Susie and I are still friends. We had fun quilting meandering loops and hearts with a feathered border...💝


I loved piecing this quick I Spy quilt for a special little person, I think it still needs outside borders to finish it off.
Today's a good day to stay in and sew, it's freezing outside. 

Have a great day.
Hugs Julia....💕
