For this months sewing project I decided to keep it simple so that I can practice at taking my time and not rushing/bumbling my way through. I also made the decision to change things up and go a bit old school.Read More »

For this week’s Worldwide Wednesday trip we are off to Mexico to meet quilting expert, Linda Carlson.
Linda, and her twin sister, co-design fabrics and teach quilting all over the world, but what inspires Linda to lead this creative life?
After completing the recent run of Fabric Friday Fat Quarter Fun blog posts I left you with a picture of some of the leftover fabrics.
This week, instead of buying more fabric, I decided to give a new project a go using that leftover stash.
In a couple of previous posts I have been detailing a few projects that I started using some pretty Fat Quarters that I had picked up at the local market.
I am pleased to say that I have most of the things now finished (but not in the way that I had expected).
Last week I highlighted a few projects that I started using some pretty Fat Quarters that I had picked up at the local market.
My intention was that I would have all of the projects finished this week and that this post would show the triumphant results!
It has occurred to me that I often prattle on about how much I love working with fabrics but haven’t really shown much of it on this blog.
To rectify this I will be setting down soon and putting together a series of blog posts that will come out every Friday (assuming that I have the time of course).
They will aptly be named – Fabric Friday :)
This one is a little teaser to show you just a few of the things that I have done in the past and what I will be showing you how to do in these posts (oh, and a little update on the upcycled shirt quilt that I have been working on for what seems like forever!).
We all know the feeling, the nights are drawing in and getting colder so we go out less and look for things to keep us busy in the long winter months.
So, at the risk of creating yet more UFOs I’ve been looking at starting some winter projects.
