Current Quilty Obsession!

Coffee sleeves! I made one for my colleague (actually my boss but she hates being called that) and several others have requested one of their own. 

These sleeves are so much fun to make and use up the tiny scraps you can't bear to part with. Here are today's creations!

Introducing the Epic Quilt

You guys, I did it! My Marcelle Medallion quilt is finally finished. This quilt was a true labour of love. I stretched myself in so many ways! I created my very first paper-piecing template (see how I did it here). I sewed equilateral triangles for the first time. I fully embraced the scrappy low volume background trend, whilst also playing with volume in general. Every border meant more design decisions, and I looked to my Instagram friends and blog readers for input. And I quilted a huge spiral which looks AMAZING if I do say so myself!

This is one of those times when I really wish I was a better photographer. These photos just don't do this quilt justice.

I feel so happy when I look at this Epic Quilt. This is my very favourite colour palette of all time. Chartreuse! Teal! Pink!  I'm pretty sure I used over fifty different fabrics. The quilt was over a year in the making and now that's it finished I'm itching to start another wild one.
