DAY 21 - Boomerang! I chopped up the rest of my Shibori stash last night into charm squares. Here’s a boomerang of my selection. I love to use up all my fabric from a project, either with a coordinating cushion, or some scrappy binding. And I think I’ve got enough for both! •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

DAY 19 - Texture. I love how didn’t forms of quilting create different textures. Whether it’s softer more spaced out lines, rigid matchstick quilting, organic waves lines, or super tight rows of hand quilting like with kantha. I like to shake it up and try different styles depending on the design of the quilt. Or dependent on how much time I have!

DAY 18 - My favourite quilt pattern is the one I’m still working on - my Mischief Quilt! The quilt pattern was designed by @karenthediyaddict and there are several variants. This is my Mischief box, I just need to piece all the different EPP shapes now! Im using my favourite ever Liberty collection, SS16’s ‘The Artist’. Lovely shades of neon lime, ultramarine, deep purple, turquoise and magenta. I’m mixing it with Kona solids in ultramarine and highlight, and some low volume. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

DAY 17 - My marking tools. Well I only really have 3. The top one is an air erasable marker pen which I bought just to try out if I’m honest. Although it dries a bit too quick for me  so this gets the least usage. The middle one is a water erasable pen and I was given this 23 years ago when I started textiles at school! And it still works! I thought it had run out at one point, so I bought a replacement below. Either way it’s handy to have a spare. I use these in conjunction with my variety of rulers, swipe ◀️. Also, how cute is this peachy Liberty Christmas fabric! Lovely gift from @hhhomemade

Here’s my mosaic for @duckeggthreads Liberty Ambassador. I’ve injected Liberty into lots of different projects, not just quilts and quilted cushions. I’ve tried my hand at a Liberty lampshade, as well as a Christmas stocking and a tree skirt. There’s also bunting, drawstring bags, table runners with matching napkins, and cloud cushions!  I’m currently working on 2 EPP quilts, one using Wiltshire for a traditional star quilt, and one using SS16’s ‘The Artist’ collection for my #mischiefquilt. In fact I didn’t realise I’d made quite so many different things, so that’s nice . I’d love to be an ambassador so 🤞 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

DAY 16 - Selvedges. These two new to me Wiltshire’s arrived last week all the way from Japan! What I love most about Japanese Liberty, is that they have a dated selvedge! Swipe ◀️ to see! I find them so interesting, I wish the UK ones had dated selvedges too really. If I’m honest though, I don’t do anything with them, they just satisfy my curiosity! I’m not keen on fabric with text, so have never felt like making something with any selvedges, Liberty or other.

DAY 15 - Tea & a Treat. Well it’s elevensies and it’s Sunday, so I’m having a cup of normal tea (milk no sugar) and a pikelet with butter (Lurpak obvs).

My sewing room/dining room gets a lot of sun in the mornings which I love. So I’m having a play with fabrics, swipe ◀️ to see my jazzy fabric pull with a hint of neon.

I use this cute little basket to store scrap Pom Pom trim which I refuse to part with and I’m sure I’ll find a use for it someday! So thank you again Jenny!!

DAY 13 - Scrap Storage. I have two sets of drawer-boxes - one from @ukmuji which stores my Liberty scraps, and one slightly chunkier from @frompaperchase for all of my non-Liberty fabric. Both are hidden away in a cupboard! The Liberty box doesn’t really have any organisation but all are fairly small bits. Anything larger has been chopped up into squares for my postage stamp quilt (to be started ). And the non-Liberty box is organised by colour - one drawer for cool colours, warm tones, black, and low volume. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

DAY 11 - My favourite sounds...I don’t really have any if I’m honest! When I’m sewing and I’m trying to concentrate (FPP!) I sometimes prefer silence. 🤫 Or if I’m doing something almost automatically like piecing HSTs or quilting, I generally have the tv on. Something I can dip in and out of, like Grey’s Anatomy or the Gilmore Girls. ‍️ So, here’s a Liberty Wiltshire Spot the Difference instead! The left one is more cobalty and I found it by chance in a Liberty bundle, and the right one is more of a cerulean, the new tonal blue from Japan. Both are very different from the new chambray type blue in the 2018-2019 classics.

DAY 10 - here’s my stash! I keep my fabric in plastic boxes (our previous flat had moths!) and it’s handy for keeping organised and seeing what lives where easily. Plus these smaller boxes, which are a bit chunkier than a shoe box are perfect for standing FQs up. These live in a cupboard in our dining room. Swipe ◀️ to see them all. My pink boxes have random rainbow shades of FQs in one for my La Passa, and Dashwood Flurry and neon C+S in another. Blue boxes are exclusively for Nani Iro. One clear box has Karen Lewis & April Rhodes, and the other only has Carolyn Friedlander. My big clear box is full of Liberty, and all things yellow and black & white. The last image is for scale! Not as attractive as on a shelf, but very practical.••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

DAY 9 - fabric I struggle to cut up is Liberty! This is my recent purchase from last week. The red Christmas I had ordered for a project so I’ll cut that up soon, I stumbled upon the Wiltshire so I know I’ll cut that up (for a star obvs!), but the two on the right were impulse purchases!  So pretty and destined to sit in my stash for quite a while . Sometimes it’s just nice to look at them! I prefer not to chop stuff up unless I have a plan really 🤷‍️

DAY 8 - favourite quilting book....well I don’t really have one! I read @lovequiltingmag & @quiltnow, but I don’t know if that counts! So here’s my sort of latest WIP instead. I cut up loads of my old knitwear and jersey to make a quilt. But after the horrors my machine faced when piecing tweed, I’ve not touched it in ages! I chopped up loads of squares of varying sizes, boxed them up in the move, and here we are two years later about to move again and I’ve not done anything. So it’s sink or swim time - I thought I’d try out a cushion size, and if it goes ok I’ll carry on. Or I’ll recycle the fabric . Does anyone else get in to these types of scrapes?! ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
