Finished! Currently untitled, 39"x39". Made from thrifted and commercial fabrics, featuring a lovely brown shot cotton on the front, as well as a hand printed cotton I bought in India as backing. Quilted with a neon thread! #thriftedfabric #neon #quiltsofinstagram

How could I forget this quilt? Lost in a bag in transit from a meeting 😮I will finish binding and do a reveal asap! #quiltsofinstagram #nofilter #neonthread #thriftedfabric

Hmm, maybe I was too quick to call my new acquisitions a new palette. #palettepersistence #improvpiecing #thriftedfabric

Love these new freshly washed acquisitions from @fabricspark. I can't decide which is my favourite but I can't wait to cut into the natural #cottonandsteel and the electric #friedlander @carolynfriedlander prints. 😍 #sewingagain #textilelove #newpalette

These new kicks have put a spring in my step on the Equinox. Now if the weather and my kidney would get in line I'll be as golden as they are. #newshoes #shinystuff #gold #bagginsshoes

The top is finished! Titled 'Breaking up is hard to do', in reference to the kidney stone problem I have been slogging through while piecing it this week. #improvpiecing #arttherapy #quiltsofinstagram #quiltday

Progress on a new little project using leftovers. I am trying to finish it asap so I can have the floor back, and so I can play with different colours again #shesbored #nodesignwall #improvpiecing #therapysewing #quiltsofinstagram

#tbt to this little medallion I made ages ago. Look how nicely it plays with this VFW print #nofilter #palettepersistence #colourplay

I love this knot print so much. I regret only getting a fq from @fabricspark ages ago, but it makes me work to use it judiciously. #silverlining #improvpiecing

Sampling ➿➰➿. Any recommendations out there for metallic thread, either for machine or hand stitching? #shinystuff #handquilting #quilting

I was telling folks at the Canadian meet up #quiltconeh about this old project. This churn dash quilt was meant to be a gift. After I bound it I just couldn't let it be, it was both too contrasty and not contrasting enough. A yellow-orange disappointment. Into the dyebath! I had a pasting up error so it stayed home and is our couch quilt, and one of my favourites for what I learned from it. I am sure to overdye a quilt again, on purpose next time. #overdyed #quiltrescue

Finally finishing this old project: lining a purchased neon 😻 acrylic ☠️ cowl with a beautiful chunky wool. I stalled for 3? 4? years on a bind-off strategy. #wipnomore #neonlove
