Hello my lovelies, great to be here in the Attic :: truthfully I should not be tucked up nattering in the Attic at all, should be attending to the business of making clean the piles of dirty laundry and packing/preparing for our trip away in Connievan tomorrow (woooooooohooooooo, four nights away by the coast!!!!) However..........before I leave to go jollying off on my giddy-trip to the seaside, I really, really desperately want to have a quick chat about Acrylic yarn and granny stripe goings on. Cos I need to share, and you need to know, right? It will NOT WAIT, right?? OK.....above yarn is my squishy big balls of Stylecraft Special DK :: 100% Acrylic :: working on a 4mm hook. Granny Stripe Blanket :: the beginning Granny Stripe Blanket :: the beginning

Boxy Stars This page has moved. Please visit it at http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2005/06/boxy-stars.html This is my latest "color controlled" version! The quilt below was donated to charity, and I needed a new one for a class sample. It was a challenge for me to try to use up some outdated fabric as well as the new stuff I was wanting to slice into. Boxy Stars

I'm QUILTING Again!!! Center panel of baby quilt Since I had plenty of left-over squares from earlier baby quilts, this quilt came together very quickly. I only had to cut out some pink batik fabric to make it more appropriate for a little girl. I laid it out one evening, pieced most of it the next day, and completed the top the following morning. It's bright and colorful, as the others were. But it's also feminine enough for a baby girl, without being TOO girly! I'm QUILTING Again!!!
Now to get into the spirit, why not take it that step further... Make you very own Babble Christmas Wreath. Here is how! You will need: Yarn - two colours I used 8 ply The Royal Sisters The Royal Sisters

Rainbow Scrap Challenge - feeling BLUE I have joined the Rainbow Scrap Challenge that Angela from superscrappy.blogspot.com is hosting. Sorry I don't know how to do all the fancy links and had to cut and paste the button above - will get there eventually, just not yet. Anyway I have at least started the challenge which is within my technical limits. this month's colour is BLUE so i pulled out my blue scraps and started sewing! Rainbow Scrap Challenge - feeling BLUE
My first mini quilt! I typically don't go for quilts that cannot be snuggled under, picnic'd on, or draped over chairs as a fort. BUT. This pattern is fun, classic, and even a little paper pieced to make it extra special. Sew This is My Life Sew This is My Life
Happy Quilting So after this quilt won 3rd place in the Modern Quilt Guild Challenge I promised several of you that a pattern would be coming soon. And yes, that was clear back in February. Hopefully some of you still count 2 months as "soon". Happy Quilting
The Mad Quilting Librarian The Mad Quilting Librarian I've spent the last week kind of noodling this post around in my head, because it feels like there's so much to it. Those of you who have been reading since last year may remember that I attended this show with my grandmother lastyear, too. (If you missed those posts, take a second to go back and browse--there were some really incredible pieces!) Southport Congregational Church has been putting on this quilt show, Fabrics and Fabrications, since 2003, and it is hosted and run entirely by community volunteers. The proceeds go to Emerge, Make a Wish and Project Learn.
Confessions of a Fabric Addict Hi, all!Wow! 2014 has really gotten off to a bang for me - how about you? I feel like I've really made some progress on both my weekly list and on my goals for 2014 - and that's a good thing!!
Gen X Quilters(&Y too!) Today is the big day! I've been showing you peeks and snippets of my newest pattern for the past month almost - and I am so glad that the Patchwork Napkins Pattern is finally ready for you. I've developed a new fabric buying problem that is called "buying-by-the-bolt". :) Recently, I bought a bolt of Robert Kaufman's Essex Linen in Natural - and while I was pondering what lovely things to make with said bolt, I decided I wanted a napkin set. After all, linen seems a pretty traditional material for dinner napkins. I began to troll Pinterest for napkin ideas - and nothing was quite like this idea I had in my mind.

Red Pepper Quilts I wanted to tell you that I don't have any Sunday Stash to share with you today and that I am awaiting the arrival of last week's purchases - like Hello Petal by Aneela Hoey and Catnap by Lizzy House - but I found some Quilt Market stash that I had tucked away in a safe place. This is the 2014 Echino Decoro collection - yet to be released. It is the medium to heavy weight fabric base (45% cotton 55% Linen) and suitable for home decorating, apparel and of course quilts. (And for some reason I cannot find a lot of information about this collection online. As yet).
Stash Manicure Welcome to our NEXT hop....SUPERPOWERS WILL BE revealed...get a pencil or pen out and begin a list....You may want to refer to these SUPERPOWERS again...reminding us all that everything is POSSIBLE... Yes I am known to have SUPERPOWERS at times!! Realllllly who has not put on a list at least a couple SUPERPOWERS they wish they had? I know when I was knee deep in my career, we had a session where our SUPERPOWERS were revealed....
It's been a busy start to the month. April kicked off on a high note for me - I think I've been bit by the sewing bug! I've managed to squeeze in time in the sewing room every day, sometimes half and hour, sometimes a couple of hours... so I've a few things to show :-) You may remember that some months ago I pulled out some floral prints from my stash. I was wanting to make an all floral patchwork quilt. The squares were cut in bits and pieces - a little here and a little there. A Fabric Case
