Day 18 of @sarahashfordstudio & @verykerryberry 's #GreatBritishQuilter Challenge - Project you made to keep.⠀
.⠀
Honest moment - I keep most of the quilts I make (much to my husband's dismay I'm sure), but this is my favourite. I had want to make this one for several years after making a smaller version (this one covers our King Size bed). It has been wonderful to sleep under it this summer.⠀
.⠀
• Pattern is Swell by @thimbleblossoms
• Fabric is Aloha Girl and Coney Island by @figtreeandco
• Quilted by the lovely @j_quilts

Day 15 of @sarahashfordstudio & @verykerryberry 's #GreatBritishQuilter Challenge - Quilt on Location⠀
.⠀
.⠀
So most of the time I am quite precious about my quilts, but now and then I make on with the intention of taking it outside. These three - Splash, Bonnie and Camille Log Cabin and The Missing U - are the regular picnic quilts and they are much more comfortable to sit on then regular blankets too! I hasten to add, my husband is alive and well, despite the appearances of picture 2 😂

Day 14 of @sarahashfordstudio & @verykerryberry 's #GreatBritishQuilter Challenge - Longest WIP.

So I've had this since 2012. It was early doors in my quilting career and I was *slightly* over ambitious with what I could achieve. Every now and then I take it out and look at it to see if I can make it work, before putting it back in the suitcase on top of the wardrobe. I have every intention of finishing it one day, not least because Marmalade is one of my favourite Bonnie and Camille lines and you can't get it anymore! Hey ho, I'll get there one day! First up, to finish up all those other WIPs... #bonnieandcamille #marmaladefabric #materialobsession #gingersnapquilt #modafabric #modafabrics #showmethemoda #ahousefullofthread

Day 12 of @sarahashfordstudio & @verykerryberry 's #GreatBritishQuilter Challenge - Favourite Quilt Backs.⠀

I LOVE a creative quilt back - so much so, that very few of my quilts have just one piece of fabric for the backing. They tend to use less fabric than just buying straight yardage, plus they look so pretty! These are just a few of the pictures that I had on hand of some of my quilt backs.

Day 11 of @sarahashfordstudio & @verykerryberry 's #GreatBritishQuilter Challenge - Last Finished Project.⠀

I posted a picture of this a couple of months ago (so apologies if you have seen it before!). I haven't done a whole lot of sewing recently as it has been SO hot here over the summer but this was my last completed quilt. It's such a pretty! 😍⠀

Pattern is "Scrap Happy" by @lellaboutique
Fabric is all @figtreeandco scraps left over from my Swell Quilt including Aloha Girl, Strawberry Fields Revisited, Mirabelle and Coney Island.⠀

Day 8 of @sarahashfordstudio & @verykerryberry 's #GreatBritishQuilter Challenge - Favourite quilt book.

I have quite a number of quilt books but have two absolute favourites: "Sunday Morning Quilts" by @crazymomquilts and @cheryl_arkison and "No Scrap Left Behind" by @crazymomquilts.

I have sung the praises of these books a few times on here before - if you haven't got them, I really recommend them! They are both books that I go to again and again; not only are they super inspiring, but also beautiful to look through and plan! This year I made two quilts from Sunday Morning Quilts but still I have a tonne of scraps and am thinking that I am going to challenge myself to make several scrap quilts next year with the help of these books.

Day 7 of @sarahashfordstudio & @verykerryberry 's #GreatBritishQuilter Challenge - Current WIP.

Sooooo... I have quite a few WIPS 🙈 (Tell me I'm not the only one, please! So many pretty fabrics and patterns - I am a devil for starting something new without finishing the previous project!). This little (well, quite large actually) number has been in the making for sometime now - so, so many half square triangles that I am trying to get through before assembling the blocks. I'm sure it will end up being fairly quick in the end, just need all those units (all 500+ of them) done first! It will be totally worth it in the end though!

Pattern is Snippets by @bonniecottonway and fabrics are Bonnie and Camille Hello Darling, Miss Kate, Vintage Picnic, Little Ruby and The Good Life.

Day 4 of @sarahashfordstudio & @verykerryberry 's #GreatBritishQuilter Challenge - Favourite fabrics.
My name is Kate, and I love a precut. In fact, I am a precut hoarder. I love the variety they give and the number of options they provide. Really, I should stop hoarding them and just start using them - but...so pretty! 😍 I have a particular love of Fig Tree and Co, Bonnie and Camille, Lella Boutique and Lauren and Jessi Jung fabrics for @modafabrics.

September means autumn is on the way - whilst I enjoy the hot weather in summer, I just love autumn for all the colour in the trees. One of my favourite times of the year!

I still cannot believe that a) I have a bag pattern in the wild and that b) people are making it and sharing it.
You all are the best! 😘

Another quilt I have found that I never posted a picture of when I had finished it! This one is Juggle and used a Happy-Go-Lucky Honeycombe that I scored from @dawn_honeybeecloths (such a find! Thank you Dawn!) and is a cute baby size with zig zag quilting.

I found this quilt again the other day and just had to pull it out to photograph - I just love how complex it looks (actually really simple to put together). I’m dreaming of another in prints - probably B&C - or scraps from my stash. ⠀

Pattern is Sewing Squaresby @emptybobbin ) in Bonnie and Camille co-ordinating Bella Solids. ⠀

My pile of patterns that of quilts I want to finish by the end of the year (no pressure Kate!). Four are already started (in various stages), and two are yet to be cut. I’m thinking I should probably finish the started ones first though..!

Working on this quilt means only one thing - time to get trimming! Only 196 units to go... Any tips for making the trimming go faster? 😂

I’m sure most of you have that quilt that you pull out every time (tell me I’m not alone?!). This is one of my all time favourites- and because it’s the one I always pull out, it is now SO soft and snuggly. I ❤️❤️❤️ it!

Free Pattern is Trellis by Lauren and Jessi Jung. Fabric is Chantilly, also by Lauren and Jessi Jung.

The boarders are on and the top is complete! So pleased that I have finally used this jelly roll - it has turned into a beauty of a quilt. Now debating whether or not to treat myself and send it off to be longarmed - what do you think?

Over halfway through the year already! I've been reviewing my Quilt goals list and, whilst I have made several quilts this year, not many of them are on this list 😂🙈 In fact I have only managed to cross off two (Merry Christmas Darling and Scrap Happy) I still have to finish my Shortcake (the back needs piecing then off to the longarmer), Snippets, Bouquet, Patchwork Sky, Swiss and Takes the Cake quilts if I am to make my goal. Better get started!

Fabric is definitely prettier when used in a quilt (as lovely as it is to look at and stroke 😂) What's the oldest line you're hoarding? Any plans to use it anytime soon?

Finally got a quilt holder for my “The Missing U” quilt (thank you husband!). As it’s been so hot here recently, I have been taking this quilt into school for the kids to read some books on the playing field on over lunch time and they love it!
The pattern is from @crazymomquilts and @cheryl_arkison ‘s book Sunday Morning Quilts and it is made entirly from scraps from my stash.

Time to quilt this lovely one up - free motion loops again (my new favourite) - it creates such a lovely texture! I am always amazed how quilting really transforms a top into a quilt 😍
