Hand Quilt Along – 14/04/19

Hello everyone!

It is time again for an update on my EPP. I have done quite a lot of quilting in 3 weeks and I think it is just about time as it’s starting to get cold here and I’m sure baby Clark could do with a warmer blanket.

I have decided to quilt around each “heart” shape and I love how it looks. I’ve taken my progress picture from the back so that you can see the quilting better.

I’ve probably already quilted about 1/4 so hopefully this won’t take too much longer before I can cut it back to size and bind it.

I hope you’ve all had a wonderful 3 weeks!

Hand Quilt Along – 24/03/19

Hello everyone!

I did it! My EPP quilt top is finished! I’m feeling very proud of this accomplishment and I’ve even started quilting it (sorry I didn’t take any pictures of the start of the quilting but I will for next time).

I had lots of fun choosing the colour of the thread for the quilting and went with a yellow, as I think it will compliment the colours I have on the top quite well. It just started to get colder here as well so it’s nice to sit under the quilt and work on it in the evenings. I’m sorry that I still haven’t been back to regular posting but it would seem that life with a 6 months old is no calmer than life with a newborn!

Hand Quilt Along – 03/03/19

Hello everyone!

I’m a bit late again with my hand quilt along post but better late than never right? I was back at work on Monday and had to make sure everything was ready for Clark and I!

It was slow progress on my EPP this time but still some progress.

It’s official I only have the top 3 rows to finish! It can only mean one thing, it’s time for me to go to the craft store and buy a big quilting hoop!

I hope you’ve all been great.

Hand Quilt Along – 20/01/19

Happy Sunday and Happy New Year!

I cannot believe that I have neglected my blog so much over the past month! Christmas has been a crazy time in our household with people visiting from all over but it doesn’t mean that I haven’t done any crafting, on the contrary.

I actually have quite a lot of progress to show you with my EPP and I am planning on having a regular craft update coming soon, as well as reporting how my 18 for 2018 challenge went.

Here is my progress shot!

Only a little to go before I start the quilting, how exciting!

Please don’t forget to check on everyone’s progress and I’ll be back soon with goals updates 😀

Hand Quilt Along – 28/10/18

Happy Monday!

Wow I can’t believe I actually haven’t blogged in 3 weeks. Time has just flown by and my hands have been very full with Mr Clark. I haven’t done much work on my EPP over the last few weeks (or much craft at all) but I guess that was to be expected with a newborn!

As promised though, here is a picture of my little progress (can you spot it?) with Clark on the blanket!

Happy Sunday!

I’m happy to report I have done some sewing despite the love overload and interrupted nights I’m currently receiving from baby Clark. Which means that his EPP blanket top is getting closer and closer from being finished.

So that’s another decent portion added and one happy Emma!

We have a new member joining us this month on the HQAL, welcome Gretchen! As always you can find everyone’s blogs linked below. Until next time!

Happy Sunday everyone!
I hope you have been well, I have been tired but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, I will be getting induced this week if baby doesn’t decide to come out on his own and it’s a huge relief as I’m just feeling so so drained. I am happy with the progress I’ve made on my EPP this time, it will not be finished in time for baby but that’s okay, I’m still enjoying the slow stitching and that is what matters. Plus, it’s actually quite big so he will still get plenty of use from it.

 

It is getting closer and closer and I still love the organised randomness of the colours and patterns. I think I might be done with the top in 2-3 updates before I start the quilting and I can’t wait!

As usual, don’t forget to check the other awesome projects from our group!

Hand Quilt Along – 26/08/18

Hello everyone!

I’m a bit late to share my progress on my EPP. There is not as much as I would have liked but the last few weeks have been very busy with friends and family visiting us so my normal crafting time has been somewhat disturbed.

Here is my progress for this time.

I can almost see the end but it’s been more and more uncomfortable for me to sit for long periods of time, the reason being that baby has decided that he would have a growth spurt and is now measuring 4 weeks ahead of schedule. He has been pushing on my sciatic nerve a lot so I’m struggling finding a good position and I have to lay down most of the time (which isn’t very practical to sew).

Anyway, I hope you made more progress than me, next time I show you this baby might have been born, which is exciting! Don’t forget to check out all the beautiful work done by the others participating in the HQAL.

Happy Sunday everyone!
I hope you’ve been well since yesterday, I’m super happy to show you my progress on my English paper piecing. We post every three weeks so I will show you where I was last time and where I’m at today.

As you can see, there is way more height on it now and I’ve filled a good part of the bottom right too. I think I will bring some of it with me up to Queensland in the next few weeks so that I can show you more progress for next time!

Hand Quilt Along – 3/06/18

Happy Sunday!

As usual, this is my 3-week update post on the Hand Quilt Along hosted by Kathy (link below). I’ve been working on my English paper piecing quilt and I have added quite a few motifs. I’m happy with the progress but I think I’ll need to work a bit more on it in the coming months otherwise it will never get finished by October! I think I’ll give myself until the middle of August to finish the quilt top and that would leave around 1 month and a half to quilt and bind the blanket (hopefully enough!)

Sorry about the weird colours on today’s picture, we’ve had a dreadful weather and I didn’t have much natural light but it still gives you an idea. I’m hoping to finish this half of the quilt top by next time, wish me luck!
