And the top is done πŸ€—. I have loved the process of making my first improv quilt. I’ve learnt a lot and I am ready for the next one! So I’m making quilts for twin babies: one boy and one girl. I think this will go to the baby girl so I have a boy quilt coming up next πŸŽ‰πŸ’™πŸ˜Š. Animals and some co-ordinates by @gingiber for @modafabrics sourced from @thepatchworkpear.

I stayed up waaay too late last night 😫 piecing this baby quilt top but I was enjoying the freedom of improv piecing so much I just kept going. I have realised I need a bigger design wall for this type of work where I’m building bit by bit in a random way! About two thirds done, the flying geese are my favourite part so far πŸ˜βœ‚οΈβœ‚οΈ @gingiber @modafabrics

Winter blah outside, cheery hearts inside. I can’t get warm today, but maybe this will help! S & C cleaned these windows ☺️ and I still need to go back and touch them up. ✨ #dearstellafabric #halfsquaretriangles #neverendingsnow

{Submission from @shecansew. Thank you, Kate.} This quilt has been a labor of love since September. I worked with my husband and his siblings to represent all the houses they and their families have lived in, including the childhood home they all grew up in and my in-laws still own. There are 65 fabrics across 16 blocks telling quilted stories of 10 different actual houses. Our houses are the top row. The far left represents our first home together, a garden apartment (floral roof) with a seeping foundation and plumbing problems (wave walls). We were married a week before Christmas while living here, and the altar at the church was covered with poinsettias for the wedding to our surprise and delight (Christmas floral door). There are stories like this for all the blocks.

So I've been toying around trying to figure out how to word this post and decided after lots and lots of procrastination to wing it (here's hoping it's better than the eyeliner) 😸 so appreciation/admiration/FANGIRL post ahead πŸ–€
I started this account after reading @giucy_giuce designer profile in issue 54 of @lovequiltingmag (here in SA our international magazines come in so late!!😿😿). I immediately related to him when he spoke about feeling not welcome in the quilting community. At age 14 up until now I've often felt out of place in quilt shops as the ladies simply don't take you seriously or think it's a "temporary" hobbie for you. I can only imagine what its like as a male! Modern takes on quilting are often brushed off and you're made to feel a little inadequate.πŸ™ˆ As I am now working in a quilt and embroidery store I do my absolute best to make sure every soul that walks through that door is made to feel like he or she belongs and their ideas are welcomed.πŸ‘Œ I have a client who has black stiletto nails, where's Guns & Roses t shirts and HE is one of the best embroiderers I've ever met.πŸ–€ Whether you're into granny prints and log cabin, or FPP's and geometric cloth or anything inbetween you belong and you are another star in the cosmos that is Creativity. So thank you @giucy_giuce for speaking out and inspiring me to share my stitches amd threads with this community πŸ’œ you are the bomb.com

What’s better than making a baby quilt? Making two baby quilts, of course! We have welcomed two darling twin babies into our extended family and I’m having a fabulous time dreaming up a quilt for each. I’m starting with a little @gingiber improv quilt! I’ll be building 4 blocks like this to piece together πŸ˜βœ‚οΈπŸ’–

πŸ“ I lost a game of thread chicken with only bits left to quilt 😭. On the upside, I’m excited to share this design with the world (next month). Nervexcited, as my old friend @monikasirnadesigns would say πŸ˜‰ #ohsewbrooke #joyfabric #michaelmillerfabric

What is this amazingness?? Perfect inspiration for a Sunday work day. By work I mean, of course, creating beautiful things. That type of work day. Thank you @lopolokko 😍😍

Last day of @molliemakes #molliemakersweek and it feels like the end of a lovely holiday, so sad it's finished 😿but the memories are just fantastic😸. Seeing everyone interpret the days in their own unique way was so much funπŸ‘Œ. To wind down the week it's time to share what inspires us, and my mom immediately jumped into my mind (grab a tissue for this one). My mom inspires me every single day. She introduced me to the wonderful world of quilting and without her in my world as a whole I'd be lost. Here's to you mom πŸ’• you inspire me to wind my bobbin up and carry on.

True story 1️⃣: I painted my nails specifically to take this picture .

True story 2️⃣: you really can’t even tell, can you? .
.
True story 3️⃣: painting your nails prior to pinbasting two quilts is a really stupid idea. πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„

I am SO excited to show you all my latest baby quilt!!! ✨
β€’
β€’
β€’ Awhile back, my mom and I made her friends a quilt as a wedding gift πŸ’ (see second photo). We matched their wedding colors and it was so much fun to put together! β€’
β€’
β€’For their new baby, I wanted use the same quilt pattern: bowties for the little prince. (If it was a girl, they would have been hair bows. πŸ˜‰) I actually saved the scraps from their wedding quilt and used them for the label's border. πŸ‘‘ I'm so pleased with how it turned out!

After five days in the office, I always look forward to weekends full of sunshine (or snow, if the forecast is any indication)! .

I made these pillows for my brother-in-law and his new fiancΓ©e for Christmas, and luckily, they were a hit! She gave me some color ideas, and I love how the new #konacotton lingerie paired with the baby pink, navy, and snow.

I’ll take procrastination for $1000, Alex. πŸ™‚ I finished this only moments before it was given, so I didn’t get many pics, but it was given to a great teacher. #teachergifts #nordictrianglesquilt #suzyquiltspatterns

Okay so day 4 πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€ of the @molliemakes #molliemakersweek aaand it's about your favourite make. I have a slight problem as my favourite make is still a work in progressπŸ™ˆ!! I started this when I was 14 and I am soooo close to being finished. This is my spooky Halloween Flutter and Doom🍊 quilt and it's so close to being done I just need to get stuck in. A different take on things but like most things in my life, my favourites are still a work in progressπŸ–€
