Jelly Roll Rug

I’ve been wanting to make one of these Jelly Roll Rugs for some time now, so when  https://www.sewdrops.co.uk/  were offering 25% off their products, I snapped it up…buying an extra couple of plain fqs to avoid paying p&p….free delivery over£25! I then resorted to You Tube and lots of videos popped up when I searched…

Social Media Safety 3: Pharming

Sorry to use Jargon in my title. For those that do not understand what it means you are about to find out in great detail. So, like we have discussed in the introduction the badies don’t go on bank raids anymore they target us the public using all sorts of different methods. One of these…

Books, books and more quilting books

I thought I would start off this journey through some of my quilting book collection by looking at some of my general how-to books. These are the ones I first bought when starting out on this hobby of ours and the ones I continued to buy when I thought they might help my students and/or…

Sweet Shoppe Too

“Bright, summer fabric packs to review .. I have two to send out. Who is interested please!” said Sylvia.  “Me”, I said and then the wait began.  Actually, I’d forgotten about it  until I came home from a stressful day at work to find a small packet posted through the door.  It wasn’t until I…

A Puzzle

This little quilt arose as a result of my search to find the perfect swap in the annual UKQU Miniswap challenge. I always see this project as a way of extending my fledgling skills and really enjoy taking part. I try hard to fit the swapee’s brief, and to create something she (only ladies so…

The Spring Quilt Show 2020  Harrogate

Friday dawned bright and beautiful, which was nice after all the rain and stuff we have been having.   Just as well since Carol was picking me up 8.30 for a trip to Harrogate Show Ground for Grosvenor Shows’ Spring Quilt Show! As local shows go this is one of the best!   When we arrived it…

Sarah’s Story – Moda by courtesy of PANICO’S

How many game shows have you heard the phrase, ‘Open the Box?’ Well, on my visit to PANICO’S I got to Open the Box …. Two boxes of beautiful fabric. Thank you PANICO’S for this amazing opportunity to write for you and to UKQU.co.uk for setting this up. Like many of us ‘quilter’s’ we take…

FREE MOTION QUILTING WITH SANDRA

Charm Spaces 3 The same size of negative space ( 10″) and the same stencil will be used here as was in the Charm Spaces 2, but by treating it differently we get a brand new design. Around the outer edge of the centre design we are again using a design that we first came…

From London’s iconic skyline

When Sylvia mentioned the landscapes theme for blogs I was reluctant to begin with but my love and fascination with history got the better of me. From my school days I have been very interested in our countries history, especially the Tudors and Stuart’s era. I could not believe my luck when the icon building…

Quick make:  Mini Ironing pad and bag

I’m a convert to those mini irons for taking to workshops or for having beside me when I’m sewing lots of little pieces that need pressing, but when you have a mini iron you really also need a mini ironing pad. I’m not sure where I first saw the idea of using a cork backed…
