This & That

Since my last proper post, it's been business as usual.
In class this fortnight we are making my Mega pincushion..........this takes a wee while longer than the class 2hrs to complete so I have only one completed photo for you so far - well done to Pat.
For those of you who may like to make this big pincushion this link should take you right to the instructions.

I joined an online Mystery Quilt - it's being run by Spotlight of Oz & NZ through their FB page and is Sarah Fielke's design. So far I have kept up and am on Wk 4 at the moment. It is meant to be done with Sarah's latest Spotlight collection but I thought I'd give it a go from my stash. I am enjoying having a wee personal project with no expectations or deadlines. Here is what I have made so far.

And I have a finish to report too! It's my traditional flannel throw - a Christmas pressie for someone special. I haven't used flannel before so took it slow & easy and stuck to a simple pattern. The back is pieced from flannel too and the wadding is 80/20. It is ever so cosy.

I have completed another make which I really enjoyed but am unable to share at the moment......soon, I promise.

Don't forget that voting opens on the 1st November in the Bloggers' Quilt Festival.......hint, hint.



  1. You have been busy! Actually quite fancy the big pinnie... not that I need another pinnie..(got a beeeeeautiful one in the post last week). but I'm liking the organisational qualities!

  2. I already have one! Hehe! Minus the sweets now though.

  3. Great makes S! You've been busy! Jxo

  4. Glad you've been keeping out of trouble :oD

  5. I love that pincushion!! Your flannel throw is utterly gorgeous love it! xxxx

  6. I love that pincushion!! Your flannel throw is utterly gorgeous love it! xxxx

  7. I really like that pincushion too, it might mean that I would not lose my cutter and scissors and tape measure in the fabric mess all the time. Might be making one soon.

  8. This is one of those times I wish I lived in Scotland instead of the south east of England. I love the pincushion and thank you so much for the instructions for it - I have downloaded them and will be putting it on my Pinterest board. I love the quilt too and might do it but I have so much catching up to do as I have been unwell for all summer and have so much to make. But your piecing and quilting is amazing. Thanks a lot for sharing.

  9. Love the pincushion, such gorgeous bright colours.
    Love your choices for the Mystery Quilt. Even though I live in Oz the nearest Spotlight is over 40kms away. I never go there unless I have another reason to be down that way. Must go and check out Sarah's fabric day.
    The flannel quilt looks lovely and warm.

  10. That pin cushion is a brilliant idea to keep everything together! You seem to be on a roll making stuff.

  11. Thank you for sharing the pattern for your Mega Pinnie. I have a question-- I'm at the step where I add the pockets to the quilted side panels. The panels are 7" and the pockets are 6 1/2". So the panel won't lay flat if I line up the sides of the pocket on it. Am I missing a step? Should I be trimming my sides to 6 1/2"? Thank you!!
