MMSC- Almost a Snail’s Pace…

Oh dear… not much progress at all since I last checked in. Hopefully by admitting it will give me some oomph to get going!


My 30s repro lap quilt.. this is all stitched so far and a few diamonds basted but a load more repros have made it into my stash since so need to cut and baste… This is a pet project so keeps being put back..


Another pet project… which I’m trying not to share til I finish it… but all I need to do is the border.. see that cutesy flower print yup a lot of hexies, half hexies and partial hexies to go on then then its done. I’m thinking of hand quilting this one too. It’s intended to be a nursery wallhanging…


This a more recent one… is an prototype to a pattern idea I have now once i finished adding those two diamonds do i applique or epp the rest!

Decisions… decisions.. and I can tell you not much sewing again today! Yesterday I managed to watch a massive 7 episodes of Grimm over mums and be catching up on a few more today.

Linking up with Monday Morning Star Count over at Life Under Quilts.



I actually finished something…..

And just in time too! My ALYOF goal was to get this pieced mini quilt turned into something and success. I finished the binding last weekend!

Little cramped for space today so these photos are the best I can do! And if you recognise the pattern or the fabrics…. pop on over to MessyJesse’s shop Sew and Quilt. That is where my inspiration (and a lot of the fabrics came from! Thanks Jesse 🙂 )

Quilt Stats:

Size: 16 x 13.5″

Fabric: Kona (not sure of exact shade but blue) mixture of Moda 30s playtime, Grace in a Pickle and Darlene Zimmerman

Quilting: Straight line with walking foot (I know I’m so boring!)

All in all pretty pleased I managed to finish this even if I’m not happy with my points or messed up the trimming and quilting… hey ho let’s not dwell on that!

So.. any other finishes? I did finish another mini quilt more on that soon!
