2014 A QUILTY YEAR IN REVIEW

I started the year by proclaiming my quilting hit list for 2014 and then pretty quickly forgot what I was going to do as I got distracted by all the bright shiny things that everyone was doing. My year of quilting and sewing was really heavily influenced by two things: Instagram and trying to get paid…

DECEMBER FLASHBACK

Tis the season to be jolly and it’s also a time to reflect back on the year and what it’s held. This year has been amazing and filled with the most fabulous people and opportunities. I never would have thought when I started this year that I’d be ending it so much closer to my…

MEET WOODENSPOON QUILTS

I can’t believe it’s the end of 2014 and this will be the last “Meet Me” I feature for the year, but I’ve saved one of the best for last; Rachel of Woodenspoon Quilts. I found Rachel on Instagram and it took me an embarrassingly long time to realise she also had a blog. I am…

NO BAKE MARS BAR SLICE

Tis the season to be jolly and we all know the most effective way to be jolly is to eat lots of naughty foods.

MEET THE SMALLEST TRIBE

When I started the “Meet Me” series of interviews I had the vision of interviewing and sharing the stories behind the quilters that I was inspired, motivated and captivated by. As I started reading the answers and learning more about how the creative process works for others I realised that my inspiration comes from so many…

SENDING PATCHWORK SUNSHINE THROUGH THE POST

I sent my Little Quilts Swap package off to my partner this week and I’m so excited, nervous and anxious to know if they like it or not. This is the first mini quilt I’ve ever given to someone else and I’m both thrilled and packing my pants about it all. I ended up going…

Christmas Sweet Pouch Swap - Pouch made by Angie Wilson of GnomeAngel.com using the Noodlehead Wide Mouth Zipper Pouch Tutorial.

WANNA SEE WHAT I MADE FOR THE CHRISTMAS SWEET POUCH SWAP?

This year I’ve tried to step out of my comfort zone a little more by participating in swaps. It started with the Aussie Modern Instabee and it’s kind of snowballed from there. I’ve hosted a couple of swaps and I’ve even volunteered to be a ‘Moderator of Awesome’ for the Schnitzel & Boo Mini Quilt…

Meet Quilt Jane - an interview series on GnomeAngel.com

MEET QUILT JANE

There’s a few quilters out there that I’ve long admired and have been fortunate enough to meet and Jane Davidson (of Quilt Jane) is just one of these quilters. One of the things I admire most about Jane’s work is her dedication to complex design and accuracy. The perfectionist in me just loves Jane’s work,…

A bit of navel gazing on the use of labels and why I don't think of myself as a Modern Quilter.

AM I A MODERN QUILTER?

Yesterday Gemma (of Pretty Bobbins) wrote a really raw post about her creative process and the impact that trying to define herself as “modern” has had on her creative process. Now I’m about to go way out of my comfort zone and come out of the stash closet and tell you all a little about how…
