I decided to join the fun of a new Sew Along, organized by Angie from Gnome Angel in Australia!
The Sew Along did not start yet, but the group is growing and growing so quickly on Facebook, this is going to be such a fun to see each one's block!
If you would like to study the rules and all the information about this sew along, click on the button above, everything is super
The Sew Along starts on 28th September, so there is still time to buy the book (which includes a template CD on
the back), to go through all the beautiful fabrics you have at home or which are waiting for you in the next shop :-)
And of course, as I already have the book, I had to try out the first block using Kona Solids and Tula Pink..... and I love the
So, do not hesitate, join the fun!
Oooooh yes, it is time again for preparing the next blog hop!
And I am sew happy to meet some "quilter fellows" in this hop again! We were always participating in the fabulous hops of Mdm Samm
and I truly miss these hops and adrenaline boosters ...
So, when Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts announced that she would organize a hop, I immediately decided to join the doggie fun
It will start on 1st Septemer, if YOU also want to be part of the fun, here are all the
I am a member of the Modern Quilt
Guild since more than one year now and really happy about what is presented to all the members.
As I am living in Switzerland, it is not very simple to visit the event MQG organizes, but this year, I took part in the Riley Blake Challenge organized by MQG.
I received a FQ-Bundle of the Riley Blake Collection "Cottage Garden" by Amanda
I decided to sew a nine-patch block, and cut it with the QCR-Ruler of Sew Kind of Wonderful
Sew Kind of Wonderful has so many great patterns with this ruler, so I took the Nine Patch Block which is included in the Curve it Up Pattern and used it with the fabrics
I quilted the bed quilt by hand with Presencia Pearl Cotton and by machine just around the whole blocks.
A huge thank you to Riley Blake
Designs for sponsoring the Challenge and for MQG for the whole organization.
The quilt is being used now and the owner is very happy !
Summer is beautiful here, it is sunny and hot, exactly how I like it!
It is also a great time for dyeing, this year, I began to dye raw silk from Thailand. It has a beautiful texture and with the
Ashford Dyes, the process of dyeing is just fantastic!
But I am not only dyeing silk, I also take the opportunity to put wool into the colour baths and the results are
I can't wait to felt this soft Wensleydale-wool into small lights .....
And off I am, still have to dye some more 12 yards of silk, LOL .....
It is time again for the "Have a Latte" Blog Hop! A Hop full of coffee smell, wonderful creations in fabrics and in
This hop is about COFFEE, ooh yeas, I love coffee! The fabric collection was designed by Dan Di Paolo for Clothworks and is named "Have a Latte".
And here is the schedule of today's ladies!
For this hop, I wanted to sew small projects and I decided to combine sewing with x-stitching. I saw this pattern online and I
knew exactly it would perfectly fit the fabric collection...
Here are the first five owls I finished as mug rugs....
From low coffein level to high voltage....
I just love these owls looking weird after having drunk their cup of coffee....
The only one I did not stitch up to now, is the "Irish Coffee" Owl, but I already started it, it cannot be ommitted!
Perfect rugs for a cup of my favourite coffee brew, Sumatra, with my Bodum press
And I also did some bigger rugs for the table, using the same collection.
I kept the quilting design very straight, as the cups are dancing and swirling around.
Thank YOU all for the visit, and do not forget to visit all the fellow bloggers of today and the coming days, have a nice
coffee and relax!
