Hand Quilt Along – 13/05/18

Happy Sunday readers and happy mothers day if you are in Australia!
I’m very happy I’m made lots of progress on my English paper piecing this time around. My mum was over visiting last week and we were working on it together (she was cutting the fabric and also helped me with choosing some new fabrics). She was very excited to be able to participate in this project, as it will be a quilt for baby. I don’t see my parents very often as they still live in France but this really made our weekend together extra special.
Maybe it was the extra help or I have just been very inspired to work on it (considering I didn’t have any update last time), either way I’ve added quite a few more diamond shapes to the quilt.
I’m now past half way up, but I think I’ll fill in some of the bottom before going much higher. Mum and I also chose a back for the quilt, and I couldn’t resist taking a picture of my EPP on top of it to show you.

The back is a bit big at the moment but I will trim it to size after I quilt the lot, to make sure it doesn’t end up too small after quilting.
That’s it for me, I hope you had a wonderful week and we will be back for another update on the EPP in three weeks!

Hand Quilt Along – 22/04/18

Happy Sunday!
As I mentioned last time, there is no progress for me this time as I am away from home and didn’t get the chance to work on my EPP. I can now reveal however, that I intend on finishing my quilt by October and to use it for bub, which is why I used both pinks and blues in it! Here is what it looks like as a reminder. I can’t wait to get home next week and get working on it, I’ll need to up my pace if I want it finished in time! See you in three weeks for the next update.

Hand Quilt Along – 1/04/18

Happy Easter everyone!

I hope you’ve had a great week, I’m sorry I’ve been off blogging for a little while. Hubby and I are on holidays and we’ve just been enjoying seeing family and friends.

Today though is our scheduled 3 weekly quilt along post and I am sharing my progress on my EPP blanket. I’ve had quite a bit of progress since last time but I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to share anything next time because I’m away from home again for work. So this will have to do for the next time as well!

I hope you’ve all been productive as well, and that you all had a wonderful Easter!

Hand Quilt Along – 11/03/18

Hello lovely readers ❤
I hope you have all had a great week and weekend, here it had been good and I even have another day off tomorrow for Labour Day in Victoria. Yay!
I’ve made some more progress on my English paper piecing, and after some consideration and debate with the hubby, I’ve decided to add a couple more motifs to the width.

I don’t know if you can see very well, but I’ve also added little triangles for the whole border so I won’t have to do it later, and I’m quite relieved it’s done!

Hand Quilt Along – 18/02/18

Happy Sunday!
For once, the progress I’m going to show you hasn’t been made this week, as I have been away from home, but actually almost three weeks ago, just after my last HQAL post!
I am quite happy with how this project is going, I have started to assemble the pieces separately from the main body of the quilt as it is getting bulkier. The width is approximately what it will be in the end (about 30″), so now I just have to add some length to it!
Until next time!

Hand Quilt Along – 28/01/18

Happy Sunday everyone!
It is time again to share our progress in the hand quilt along hosted by Kathy. I actually made some progress this time, more than last for sure!
Here are my pictures, on the left from last time and on the right this time.
I am now expanding the piece towards the left side until I reach around 30″. I think the right side will stay as is until I finish the quilt top, and then I’ll trim it to be a rectangle before quilting and binding it. Phew! Lots left to do but there is progress so it’s encouraging!

Hand Quilt Along – 07/01/18

Happy Sunday readers!
It is time again to share my progress on my English Paper Piecing for the Hand Quilt Along hosted by Kathy every three weeks.
Due to Christmas and New Year (and my family being here) I actually didn’t get much progress this time

I did however, cover a lot of my templates with fabric, which does take quite a long time. This will have to do for progress this time!

I hope you guys had time to work a bit more of your HQAL than what I did!

Hand Quilt Along – 17/12/17

Hello readers!

It is time again for another hand quilt along update! I’ve tried to add small triangles to fill on of the edges of my EPP this time, and I think it worked great 🙂 Can you see it at the bottom of the second picture? You might also notice that I’ve introduced some new fabrics, the ones from my hoop embroidery project.

We have some new participants this month, Nanette Sassy and Edith, welcome! Next update in 3 weeks on the 7th of Jan!

Hello lovely readers!
I hope you have all had a great weekend! Like I mentioned on Friday, I am super excited to join in the new Hand Quilt Along hosted by Kathy! For this HQAL, I will be working on my EPP. I had not worked on it for a while and this QAL is the perfect opportunity!
Here is where I was at last time I showed it to you.

And here is where I am at now!

So quite a bit of progress made, I bought quite a few new fabrics when I was in Europe with this quilt in mind. My plans are to hand quilt it too once I’ve finished the quilt top, using the sashiko technique.

English paper piecing

Happy Wednesday readers!

A couple of weeks ago, a saw a really cool post on Kais (Empress Fibres) blog: a tutorial to English paper piecing! I have always been intrigued by this and the tutorial was so well done that I decided to jump right into it! I first wanted to use scallops shapes but I realised that I was way over my head with the curves 😅 Maybe when I get a bit more practice!

So I ended up going for a jewel shape, I really like it and it’s only straight lines, so manageable for a total beginner!

I decided to print out my own shapes, I printed them on carboardy paper, and they’ve been holding their shape quite well! I used a free template I found on Google with a bunch of shapes, so I’m prepared for the years to come!

I just really enjoy it, it’s super relaxing and there are so many possibilities! This is what I’ve got so far.

Do you see the hearts?

I wish you guys a great end of the week! ❤️
