Every so often I see something on Facebook and think ‘I could do that’. This was one of those moments.
There’s been a lot of talk about reusing and recycling to reduce the mountain of waste we generate daily…
Brilliant, and saved from landfill. My Local charity shop takes all my tiny scraps. They weigh them and send to the scrap man. All good. I recently used old jeans on a quilt challenge and sent a dangerous pocket off to an exhibition . Love your OG.
I know I have some insulbright lurking somewhere, but where? I also have an incredibly vile disgusting set of stained and burnt OG’s that look at me with disgust every time I go into the kitchen. Burnt because I have forgotten to turn the gas off before anything comes out of the oven to go on the stove top! I WILL find that heat resistant wadding to make some, but just which box is it in? If I do find it I might make some big “Man Chef Mittens” for DH to use on the BBQ as well!
I love how you have used the jean pockets! Sadly I am not a fan of oven gloves – I find them much harder to use than a folded up tea towel!
All good things come to an end, and this is the final competition of this series.
Don’t despair as we are working on new ideas to keep you on your toes.
Grosvenor Shows will be displaying all o…
At the Festival of Quilts this year, for the very first time, one of the first ladies of Quilting – Jenny Doan – will be visiting with her famous Trunk Show.
Jenny Doan has been called ‘The most famous…
As a fellow left hander I need to win !!
What a fabulous chance! As she was the very first person I watched on youtube explaining piecing, I have a very soft spot for this lady.
Would love the chance to see Jenny and here her talk x I would like to go on the Saturday
My friend and I find Jenny’s tutorials on you tube extremely helpful. We would love to listen to her show on Sunday
Still can’t enter …. Sob! Fabulous prize! I read the terms and conditions and shed a tear….. as a blogger/contributor to the UKQU site, I can’t enter, but whoever does win will have an amazing time!
I am a New Quilter but have been Dressmaking for many years. I would love to experience the Festival of Quilts to get some inspiration and stock up on supplies.
Jenny is a great Quilting inspiration. As a newbie quilter I love her Youtube videos. To watch her, maybe meet her would be a tick on my bucket list! I would love to come on Saturday 3rd August.
Would love to go see Jenny and take my friend who has never been to a show before
On the Saturday please
With the Festival of Quilts on the horizon I am sure many quilters are frantically burying threads in readiness for completing their entries. Clover has a clever snag repair needle that might help.
The dressmaker of Khair Khana by Gayle Lemmon. This is a book about sewing (rather than quilting) and about creating a brighter future even when it seems impossible. This is a true story about Kamila from Kabul.
I am getting ridiculously excited. A long last we plan to turn our garden cabin into my sewing room, mostly because I have outgrown the small bedroom and space in there has shrunk. Well, I say shrunk, but if tr…
Wow, hubby wont see you for weeks!!!
haha .. I cannot deny I had not thought of that either
Sounds wonderful. Look forward to hearing more about your moving to your cabin. An opportunity to sort through and remember all the quilts you have made. Wonderful
I am working on a set of bunting created from the scraps from all my quilts. Well, once I get started that is. All too often the quilts are gifted or donated, and what better way to remember them eh!
I can understand your excitement. Love the patchwork chair. Just make sure Tilly does not order too much extra fabric on the phone!
It looks lovely in there. And you will be able to lose yourself sewing away from the phone, the doorbell etc. I wish I had insisted in double glazing for mine!
I have long been telling all and sundry that I am building up a stock of fabric for if and when I can no longer afford to buy it. I have a badge saying ‘It’s not stash. It’s my retirement fund’! I am fortunate in that my OH encourages me to buy! After all, he says, if you don’t use it someone will! As we have a daughter and a grandaughter who sew, it’s a point. Our grandson enjoys a bit of sewing now and then, too!
Looks like its going to be the in place to go! How lovely is this to finally get a dedicated space. My small bedroom has also become outgrown, one day soon I too shall have another place to go. I bet you are dead excited.
Next month we will be looking at recycling in patchwork, which some might say is where our craft began. The lovely people at Gutermann have put together a great collection of threads for working with denim, and o…
Needlework was an important accomplishment for all women in times gone by, and some exceptional examples are up for sale as two important private collections of Samplers and Quilts come up for auction in Tennants…
We asked Sandra Pearson why she entered the quilt competition here and this is what she said, in her own words with comments from some of her friends too:
I have been asked to talk here on the web site a bit about…
