Landscape quilting here I come!

Posted by pegsplace on October 21, 2014

I took the first workshop and worked on getting my pattern drawn:

The process is interesting and I am learning a lot, tracing onto the vinyl:

And here on the very lightweight cotton:

I kind of feel like an artist when it is on the material. This week my goal. Is to make the pattern pieces for the boat.

I am linking up to The Needle and Thread Network. It has been far too long since I have been wandering!

I am doing something other than quilting….sewing a skirt! I haven’t sewn for so long so have to organize beside my quilting!

Tomorrow I have a landscape quilting workshop. I can’t wait! I have been wanting to do this technique for quite awhile. Here is the picture that I chose and that the teacher played:

Hexing minitures

Posted by pegsplace on October 19, 2014

I have really caught the hexing bug and my friend Jen and I have contaminated others in our community! A contaminated hexagoner made each if us this beautiful pouch! I have been using it for a special project which I can’t reveal!

Our guild made baby quilts for the hospital this year and this is the one that I donated. I hope that it is given to a baby around Easter.  These will be for the preemies.

Here is the back:

I have been busy, if not I would be here but I am going to make a big effort to get back in here and do something with my blog.  I do so much blog surfing and sort of get overwhelmed by everything that everyone is doing.  I am creating but not fast.

HEXAGONS seem to be my mainstay.  If I have a few minutes then I make hexagons. I have love all the sizes and I have invested in these Fiskers punches:

I really love the half-inch one but the 1/4 inch ones are my faves.  Alas there is no 1/4 inch punch so I ordered 1400 of them ;).

I am involved in a monthly-themed swap and here are the latest.  I swap the 1 inch ones but in the pictures I show what I have done during the month:

IMG_4682These were for my batiks swap and I had made a lot of scrappy 1/2 inch ones for myself.

Here is my autumn swap:

So, back to creating!

Hello from Scrapland!

Posted by pegsplace on July 30, 2014

I am here and I am creating.  Actually, creating and ORGANIZING! I decided to finally organize all my stash and wow do I have a lot!photo 1

This is what I got out of my bag of scraps, pots of scraps etc…on the left are over 300 hexagons, prepped and ready to go.  On the right are 1500 rectangles ready to handpiece (more on that in a later post).

Here is my little set up:

photo 2I have no idea why I cut up Christmas fabric into strips but I did so into my scrap bins!

photo 3My final scrap set up…all divided into colours!  My next step is to cut my scraps down into blocks!

Such fun!

Now before I forget, there is a giveaway going on at Jan’s blog: sewandsowfarm.blogspot.ca.  Go and check her out!à

Happy sewing!
