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!

Today I'm quilting up this beauty for @jorja_bourne - isn't it pretty! I just love how the stippling makes a wonderful texture on this quilt!

Every once in a while, a group of friends and I meet for a "Crafty Weekend" - I sit and sew and the rest crochet. We chat, laugh, drink much tea and put the world to rights - it is one of the best things! Thank you for a lovely weekend ladies - we should do it much more often!

Think I'm getting a little bit addicted to these Swiss quilts! They are so fun to put together. The green one is made with just fat quarters (and a splash of yellow) and the aqua one is made with scraps - I just love them both - I want to make them in all the colours! β€οΈπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œ Another two to add to my growing quilting list... Pattern: Swiss by @thimbleblossoms
Fabrics: Bonnie and Camille and scraps

I pulled out some of my patterns the other day and have been inspired to expand my mini quilt collection (and get them up on my wall!). Mini Dwell is looking like a good start!

This weekend I am on craft fair number 2, meeting customers and bearing just a bit of my soul. Having a small business is brilliant and I am so excited about the future. This Christmas, shop with a small business and make someone do a little happy dance! #smallbusinesssaturday
