A few finishes :)

I have been enjoying this little hobby of mine lots lately but haven't been blogging much. Aunty told me off yesterday (she loves to read my blog) so a quick round-up of what I've been making.

A new quilt - made for a much longed for little boy:

And I tried some different free motion quilting, which I think worked out okay:

Better to see on the back:

Great timing, I had the fabric but was waiting for inspiration to hit me ... bought the Love Patchwork & Quilting magazine:

thank you for the dresden plate templates - turned them into this bright chicken table runner for dear sister's birthday:

Appliqué, zig-zag and stippling:

The back: 

A peg bag for my friend Fran @PatchyRose:

And my latest quick gifts? Some tissue holders - aren't they gorgeous??

Have been posting regularly on Instagram - mustn't forget my blogging friends - linking up with Sarah @ Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

Off to create some more loveliness now! Happy weekend x


  1. Lots of lovely things you made, Jen!
    I agree with your aunt!
    Don´t forget your blogger friends!
    We are out here and waiting to see what your magical fingers have created!!!
    Thanks for sharing!


  2. Lovely gifts; lucky people! Do you have a pattern for the tissue holders, or did you design them yourself? That's a super handy little gift; I'd like to make some too.

  3. Aunty is very wise. My poor blog is neglected too. I love what you've been making.

  4. Hi, Jen. I always love to see what you're up to. I haven't blogged since we got the pups. But, I hope to get back to it and should have a lot to share when I do.

  5. It's so inspiring to see finishes!

  6. You are the most productive quilter I know, and everything is absolutely gorgeous! Well done :-)

  7. What a lovely collection of finishes. I enjoy seeing you trying new FMQ.

  8. It's hard to find a balance between Instagram and blogging, isn't it? I love doing both.

    And I love your finishes. Tissue covers are a great little gift. Going to store that one away for sure!

  9. Glad to see you've been having such fun sewing this month. They all look lovely!

  10. What fun you have been having and lots of wonderful finishes!! I've been doing up dresdens too - they are just way too much fun and sew up really quickly.


I love reading all your comments, I know it takes time to write them but they make me smile so thank you for dropping by :)
