All the happy Mail today! First labels and then my Swell quilt came back from the quilters. I quilt most of my quilts on my home sewing machine, but I decided it was time to treat myself. @j_quilts has done such a fantastic job and I love the Modern Twist quilting 😍😍 Now to get this one bound and into my bed! β€’ Pattern is Swell by @thimbleblossoms β€’Fabric is Coney Island and Aloha Girl by @figtreeandco

Straight line quilting and wishing I had a long arm!
This one is so soft and snuggly in @minickandsimpson Snowfall Wovens 😊
Pattern from @missouriquiltco and is called Double Slice - such a fun pattern!

I love it when a friend uses a quilt that I make them - bonus points for picnics @mayhappinessbrewalways especially when they include an actual cheeseboard and wine 🍷 πŸ˜‰πŸ˜˜β€οΈ .

The time has come to get some new labels - I'm thinking woven this time, as these printed ones have faded πŸ˜• Has anyone got any recommendations or tips?

Really I need a ladder to photograph this one, but I was so excited to share this one! I ❀️ it! Cannot wait to get this one quilted - any suggestions for quilting designs? I was thinking loops or rainbow fans... Also an big thank you to @sarahedgarprettyfabrics for getting the border fabric to me so quickly! β€’ Pattern is Swell by @thimbleblossoms β€’ Fabric is Aloha Girl and Coney Island by @figtreeandco

I'm thinking of making a queen/king sized @thimbleblossoms Swell quilt. My question to you is should I mix these two @figtreeandco beauties together, or just stick to one line? Do you think they will gel together? Am I over thinking this?

I appear to be hoarding jelly rolls (this isn't even all of them 😳) so I was wondering if anyone had any jelly roll patterns that they would recommend? I'm debating whether to crack open the 3 B&C jelly rolls for a scrappy trip along quilt, but I'm not sure!! Help!

Quilting away on my scrappy Aqua Swiss Quilt.
Not sure if I'm regretting my choice of a close zig-zag or not - it's pretty time consuming but the texture is so worth it!

You guys!!! I have serious heart eyes over this one 😍😍 It's 100% scraps (plenty of Bonnie and Camille in there!). This one is going to some dear friends who are getting married next weekend, after going into the wash with about 3 colour catchers πŸ˜‚

A sneak peak at today's project 😍😍 This quilt is 100% scraps and from @crazymomquilts and @cheryl_arkison 's book Sunday Morning Quilts - seriously in love with this one! (Also ashamed to say that this hasn't made much of a dent in my scraps 😳 - more scrap quilts are definitely on the horizon!) #highfivequilt #sundaymorningquilts #crazymomquilts #scrapquilt #scrapquilting #ahousefullofthread

This gorgeous little quilt went off to it's new home this week with the beautiful little baby Bea- it's from @diaryofaquilter 's @becraftsy class called Pre Cut Shortcuts and was so fun to make! I am sure it will be well used and loved - which makes me very happy!

Number 2 - a very bright Tumble quilt, another @cluckclucksew pattern from Growing up Modern. This one uses Dreamin Vintage by @jenib320 and is just so bright and cheerful! I'm going to use super scrappy binding for this one and am looking forward to seeing it all sewn up!

So I've been working on a couple of Baby Quilts over the past few days - this is the first. It's called Rock-a-Baby from @cluckclucksew 's book Growing Up Modern - I really love this one! I even experimented with some spiral quilting (coz baby's quilt so why not!) the texture is just awesome!

The fabrics are from The Treehouse Club by @sweetwaterfabric , Hello World by @abihallcreate and (of course) some of Bonnie and Camille's Basics!

So every @thimbleblossoms quilt I make becomes my new favourite, so this is the current front runner: Hopscotch in Handmade. A very happy 10th birthday to Camille over at Thimble Blossoms - thank you for all of your inspiration and beautiful designs that has given me a hobby for life! Here's to the next 10 years!
