It's a Wednesday!

SO, this week I shall be mostly ignoring all wip's and starting new ones! Because I haven't got quite enough to be getting on with!
I finished my Supersized Granny Square cushion and to say I'm pleased with it would be a huge understatement!! I'm also quite surprised by the menfolk and friends that commented on it over the weekend and no, I didn't shove it under their noses asking for compliments!!

Happy (Harvest) Vine Table Runner
This is the March project for the Threadbias Pretty in Patchwork Holidays sew along.

I started it on Saturday and thanks to Katy's (the queen of curves and paper piecing knowledge!) comment I didn't use any pins in the making of those curves. She directed me to this video by Leanne and did it save me time and sanity!!! Although my sanity and patience were nearly lost, cutting all of those curves out with paper templates!!
Anyone who reads this blog regularly will know I am terrible at making decisions! I spend far too long over thinking things, so can you help me to pick a stem fabric? Please?
We have from top left, Moda cross weave, Summersville, Flea Market Fancy and all together.

Giant Constellation Star
I have been hiding these fabrics that arrived just after Christmas, as I think I've been too scared to cut into them.
They were bought to hoard make my eldest a giant star quilt and he has been asking when I'm going to start it, but I've been undecided (what a surprise!!) on what to use for background. Kona Ash, Kona Medium Grey or Bella Grey. I think I'm swinging towards the Ash but don't have a colour card or any around, so I'll just have to take the plunge. Any thought from anyone will be gratefully received.

Playful Stripes Cardigan
This has been a joy to knit of an evening, the pattern has been really clear so far. I'm nearly finished the body and am ready to cast on the sleeves.

It's great knitting it all in one piece as my sewing skills for knitted pieces is a bit dodgy.

No progress this week on my Little Lady Siblings Quilt, hopefully I will get it moving this weekend.
WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. Your table runner is so pretty! Great color choices.

  2. I like the Summersville for your stem, can't help on the greys sorry!

  3. Your table runner will be so pretty! I think I like the FMF best for the stem.

  4. I like the Summersville for the stem, too! I like the little leaves on it. Great table runner... I just seen that video by Leanne too, when I was looking to do curves on my latest project. I am finished the quilting now and need help choosing the binding. Take a look and offer a suggestion, if you would, please... I need help, too!

  5. Oh I love the idea of using the Lizzy House constellation fabrics to make a star quilt. Great idea. I vote the Ash fabric. It will help highlight the wonderful patterned fabric.

  6. The leaves look fab, and I vote the top right on the stems.

    I think the Ash will work well, as it's quite a warm light grey :o)

  7. Summersville. Very cool table runner!

  8. Wow the table runner is so great. Love the constellation fabric also.

  9. That is such a cute use of the drunkard's path block. Very cute leaf shapes. Love your table runner. I'd recommend the bottom right for the stem, but they all would look great. Those blues look wonderful for a constellation quilt. Just go for it!


I know time is precious, so thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a message xxx
