Hand Quilt Along – 18/08/19

Hello everyone!

I almost forgot but I didn’t! Here is my update on my english paper piecing and I have some progress yet again. It’s a bit hard to tell but I’ve added a lot on the sides so that most of the width is done.

I actually have been crafting a lot more recently too, I’m slowly but surely getting my crojo back and it sure feels good! I’ve been a lot more active on Instagram in the last few weeks and I’m planning on doing a big blog post soon with all my recent finishes.

I hope you’ve all been wonderful, and until next time!

Hand Quilt Along – 28/07/19

Hello everyone!

I am still there! I’m so sorry that I missed so many updates, but what can I say? Having an active little bub has been really crazy and doesn’t leave much time for sewing or for anything else. I have made some progress on my EPP though (in the last few months 😂) so here it is!

Since last time, I was able pin the layers together and it has helped a lot. I hope that everyone has been well and hopefully I’m able to make the next update!

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 – 10/02/19

Hello readers!

It seems that I’ve been caught up in life again and forgot all about my blog but at least I’ve made some progress on my EPP! If in the mean time you are interested in my other projects on the go, I’ve been posting a couple pictures on my instagram account (my username is EmmaCraftsDesign).

Mr Clark has been a handful too, we’ve been busy going to the pool, to the gym and visiting his little friends and he is loving life!

Here is the progress on my EPP.

I think I might have a finish by next time! Hope you have all been great and that I’ll be able to catch up on some blogging.

Hand Quilt Along – 9/12/18

Hello everyone!

Here is our update for our quilt along and I do have some progress to show on my EPP! This is very exciting as there was no progress last time.

I am not sure how much will get done over Christmas with all the family we have visiting but I’m happy with progress!

Please don’t forget to check out what the others have been up to, there are some wonderful projects!

A bit of an update

Happy Thursday lovely readers!

I am so sorry I’ve gone missing again for a few weeks, I even missed the hand quilt along post last Sunday ☹️ The truth is I didn’t have much to show for (just some covered hexies) and I ended up also being super busy with Clark. Here there are though if you were interested!

I should have some progress for the next update though so I’m definitely not giving up!

In other news, Clark has been growing so so much! I can’t believe he is already past 2 moths old, time has just gone by so fast. We’ve already taken a couple of Christmas pictures with him too and he was just too cute in his first Christmas outfit.

And finally I have some exciting news! This year, despite being so busy with bub, I’ve decided to participate once again in Amigurumipatterns.net contest. This year the theme was Prehistoric Times and my entry was Archie the Archaeopteryx. I’m so proud that I actually finished him in time to enter and I’m looking forward to see how many votes I get compared to last year. Probably less, but I’m just so happy I entered at all.

Here is Archie! If you would like to see the other entries and maybe vote for Archie, clicking on the image below will bring you to the entries (bonus: you enter the draw to win some yarn!). There really are some amazing designs this year and I’m very excited to see who will end up winning!

I hope you have all been well!

Hand Quilt along – 7/10/18

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!

Hand Quilt Along – 16/09/18

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!

FO Friday -Nappy bag/ changing mat

Happy Friday!

This week I have a sewing project to share with you, which is a bit unusual! I’ve now packed the sewing machine (as it was in baby’s room) but it was great to use it for a last project before he comes along.

I made a very cute portable changing mat/ nappy bag for baby. This isn’t perfect by any means but I love it and it will be super practical, which is what matters. I followed a free pattern from So Sew Easy and it was actually quite easy to follow. The most trouble I had was sewing the binding on the main body, as I had to go through 2 layers of fabric, plus the batting in the middle. I was super proud of my pockets though!

And how cute are those fabrics? The inside is a quilting cotton and the outside is flannelette, which is nice and soft and very washable. It’s all padded so that baby will be comfortable while he gets changed, and hopefully it’ll be a practical solution for when we are not home.

On other baby news, he is so big that I will need to get induced in a couple of weeks if he hasn’t come yet. I’ll keep you posted!

Have a great weekend!

Hand Quilt Along – 5/08/18

Happy Sunday everyone!

It’s that time of the month again when we share our progress on our hand quilt along. I’ve been working a lot on my EPP and I’m past half way, yay! I knew all that extra planning from last time would pay off. The top is now at full height as well, so it’s “just” a matter of filling in the space 🙂

Now, I’m hoping to get the better part of the quilt top done by next update, it might be a bit ambitious but I do have some spare time so fingers crossed!

Please don’t forget to check out the other amazing people working on their hand quilting. Bella is currently taking a break but you can still go check her blog 😉
