blog. And, well, I don’t consider a project fully done until she’s been shared
with you here. Go check-out this colourful pretty that makes me smile every time I see her.
Reverberance Quilt pattern 😉
pieces bring me pure joy. This one sat unfinished for the longest time, just
hanging out on my design wall while I tended to other quilty priorities.
Needless to say, it felt amazing to finally finish her up and share her with
you. Plus, she made me realize just how much emotion goes into a quilt project.

and hard ALL at the same time! Thankfully, my Tribal Diamond Quilt didn’t have to be kept secret for too long! Find the pattern exclusively in the
2019 Quilter’s Planner Magazine.
SECRET SEWING #2
back in May. But the day is coming soon! November, in fact, is when I finally
get to share a new quilt pattern I made featuring Karen Lewis Textiles’ latest Blueberry Park fabric collection for Robert
Kaufman. It’s a fun one – so – stay tuned!
FLIGHT PLAN QUILT (AKA MEOW QUILT)
change! Originally called the Meow Quilt, I finally changed that to Flight Plan
since it aligned better with the quilt design. This one is fully done and
hanging out on the back of my sofa waiting for her close up. Actually, her
second close up as the first one failed miserably!
SECRET SEWING #4
but I just can’t share her yet. In fact, I can’t reveal her until early 2019!
See what I mean, secret sewing is fun, but not being able to share these fun
projects with you for so long is tough! I think you’re really going to like her
though. So, the wait should be well worth it!
more done that I thought! Woot woot!
to have multiple projects on the go. I didn’t initially get this when I first
started quilting and swore I would focus on one project at a time. Bah hahaha.
How naïve I was!
IRISH VORTEX QUILT
you. She officially launches on October 18, 2018 and I’m SO close to getting
this throw size quilt done! She’s all quilted up and I’m putting the finishing
touches on the hand binding. Now, I just need to keep my fingers crossed that
the weather cooperates for her photoshoot this weekend!
BABY IRISH VORTEX QUILT
in and get started. Wanting to make sure the pattern worked before sending her
out to my pattern testers, I figured a baby version was the way to go. What’s
super fun is that I used up some scraps left over from Secret Sewing #2 and I
love how different this quilt looks from the original project. I’m feverishly
working away on the hand quilting and hope to have her done in time for the
FALL IRISH VORTEX QUILT
a scrappy version in my Irish Vortex Quilt pattern. This is where I finally
dipped into my Forest Fable bundle by Leutenegger that
I purchased back in 2017 from Westwood Acres Fabric with a gift card my SIL gave me for x-mas. I’m still trying to figure out a
backing for her. I’ve gone through 3 different ideas and don’t feel any closer
to a solution. Needless to say, she won’t be finished in time for the pattern
launch, but I’m hoping to be inspired soon!
HOLIDAY IRISH VORTEX QUILT
this pattern! I can’t help it – she’s just SO fun! I’m normally not a big
holiday themed quilt maker, but when I stumbled across these fun Christmas
prints from the Home for the Holidays collection by Michael Miller Fabrics I just couldn’t resist. Hoping to cut into
this pretty bundle sooner rather than later 😉
LPQ GINGERBREAD HOUSE QUILT-A-LONG
Patchwork & Quilting are hosting a holiday sew-a-long the month of October
featuring @burlapandblossompatterns that was featured in the October issue. I’m still mulling
my fabric choices, but pretty sure I’m going to go with these. I’ll be making a
little quilted mugrug or wall hanging and will be sharing it later this month.
FIGURE EIGHT TABLE RUNNER
I was invited to participate in her blog hop that kicks off on October 15 and
have decided on making the Figure Eight block using these pretty fabrics. I’m
back to my pinky/ peachy/ coral obsession! Stay tuned for my stop on November
1, 2018. The book officially comes out on October 15, but you can pre-order it on Amazon here. And – spoiler – it’s a good one!
MODERN AZTEC QUILT
sewing table for what feels like ages. Other priorities took over and this
pretty is just waiting for me to get back to her. It’s a new pattern I have in
the works but needed to make it myself first before sending it to my testers.
As soon as Irish Vortex launches, she will have my full attention. 😊
HOLIDAY MODERN AZTEC TABLE RUNNER
for Christmas in July, but ahead of my usual start getting holiday ready in
September. I just need to figure out a backing for her and then I can proceed
with getting her quilted up!
WORKS IN PROGRESS
projects this last quarter, but I guess all of the above explains that!
still hanging out fully pin basted on the back of my sofa. What I am excited
about, is that I finally gave the 28wt Aurifil Thread a go with my Irish Vortex
Quilt and I LOVE the look. Hope to share more feedback on that soon. Oh, and
get this pretty quilty soon too 😉
will take me years to get this one done. So, it’s no surprise she’s still in my
WIP pile. But, I did sneak in a couple more blocks while I was on vacation. So,
there’s that! You can find the pattern, papers and templates over on The DIY Addict’s website.
IMPROV DRUNKARD’S PATH QUILT
their ziplock bag. Haven’t even thought about them. Poor little improv blocks.
I’ll get to them soon…ish!
SEW MOJO MINI QUILTS
and buy some frames and this project is done. But Ikea is always just a
madhouse – can you really blame me for avoiding it? Plus, you KNOW I’ll end up
buying more than just frames. My wallet is thanking me 😉
MEDALLION SQUARED QUILT
haven’t been able to get to her. I hope to soon.

SEWCIAL BEE SAMPLER
staring at me, reminding me how much I need to finish the last row of my
Sewcial Bee Sampler quilt. Row 1, Row 2,
Row 3 and Row 4 are all complete and just waiting to be stitched together in a quilt.
over them at the moment. I’m sure the pillow making bug will hit me again soon!
MOLINARI WALL HANGING
actually made some progress on the thread burying last quarter. I thought this
meant I would be back in thread burying mode, but alas that wasn’t the case. I
will be diving back in soon though as I have a thread burying tutorial planned
for you guys.
how I want to finish her up. I probably just need to sit down one day and
decide to tackle her. She’s going to be a beauty when she’s done.
And I actually did make some progress on her. All the big stitch hand quilting
is done (I think!), it’s just the needle turn appliqué that I have left. Since
I’ve already machine quilted her before attaching the flowers and leaves, once
I’m done appliquéing them, I can move straight to binding!
appearance on my IG feed soon
MODERN SEWCIALITES SAL
a few blocks to catch-up on, but I’ve been loving my colourway for this quilt.
Here’s my finished February, March,
June and July blocks. I haven’t planned anything and just dip into my basket of scraps
whenever I tackle a new block. So fun and liberating!
around here! At least, I hope that’s all I have for my Q4 FAL list! Look
forward to seeing what you plan to tackle this quarter. I’m linking up over on Dizzy Quilt’s Blog.
