Anything Goes Linky Party

stitch by stitch


I am thrilled and honored to host Marelize's Anything Goes Mondays Linky Party today. Marelize's blog, Stitch by Stitch, contains some amazingly beautiful work...I particularly like her freemotion quilting that she showcases throughout her blog. I have pretty much participated in the linky from its beginning...as it says, anything goes, which makes it very easy to link up, particularly if you are like me and keep swapping from one project to the next.

Anyway, welcome to my little part of the web. I hope you have a bit of a look around, stay for a while and come back often. I have been quilting since 2006 and blogging for about 2 years. I love all things quilting, however over the years FMQ has become my real passion (obsession!). When I am not quilting, I love to design quilts and have started to put some of my patterns up on Craftsy. You can find my pattern store HERE or just have a quick look at the Craftsy button on the right sidebar.

I am currently in the midst of what I call my stash reduction mission and am working on the following projects:

My Spiderweb block quilt: have over 40 triangles finished and need to make about a 100 more...I am aiming for a bed sized quilt...slightly overwhelming at the moment, but I am determined to just keep going
If you are interested in making one of these, have a look at my tutorial

The little Country quilt: made out of leftover scraps, cut into squares
Ready to be quilted. Waiting for a FMQ ruler that I ordered from the US.

And then there is my FMQ project: this has been on hold for a while after the enormous area of microstippling. Have two more borders to do and am starting to get restless, itching to continue on this project.

And then my husband asked me for a baby quilt for an acquaintance the other day...so I designed this little beauty out of very little fabric (had a few Fat Quarters of some Brights fabric that I won some time ago), still going with my determination not to purchase any new fabric.

This is so cute!


Now it is your turn to share with us what you have been busy with

  4. Thanks Karin! I always love your fmq....always amazes me. That microstipple does look like it could get crazy. Those spider web blocks are beautiful. I did some paper piecing once...it does take a lot of them, good scrap project though.
