I’m not sure I’d advocate kicking off your week with a fizzy drink, but a can of positivity I can definitely get behind! (I also couldn’t have a three word quote involving the word can without having a can of something, could I?!)
.
Did you know that the Coca Cola logo is based on a font called Spencerian script, which was popular in America between 1850 and 1925? I just love playing with and stitching different fonts! .
Have a great Monday xx

My boy’s quilt is finished and he loves it 🧒🏼🦖🐟🐠🐢💦⚽️.

I used only soft and lush #cottonsupremesolids by @rjrfabrics and handquilted it in a blue rainbow of @aurifilthread 12wt 💙 #aurifilartisan

Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who joined in on the Q&A with @quiltville_bonnie last night! Wasn’t it fun?? 😍 You can catch the replay on my Facebook page or in this week’s blog about scraps! 💃🏽

Choosing a thread just a shade different from the fabric can give a lovely effect. I’m loving this combination. Aurifil 50wt Light Lilac (#2510) on Island Batik Lilac. #aurifil #aurifilartisan @aurifilthread #islandbatik #islandbatikambassador @island_batik

“Changing Course Midstream.” These beavers appeared in meditation along with a message. “Working together can change the course of action.” Wise counsel from these beautiful creatures.

This is my first real purple block (1 of 6) for the #kingfisherstitchalong and I looove it 💜 I used @aurifilthread shade 6733 Twilight for this one. It’s the perfect grayish purple. .

Swipe left to see why I’m making this minimalist quilt for @vancouvermqg ‘s #westcoastmodernmini challenge. If you’ve ever lived in Vancouver, or have an interest in the architectural evolution of the city, you know exactly why this quilt is called “Special”. 18.5” x 17”

I’m joining @myteaandbrie for the #saturdaynightcraftalong for the first time! This is my little portable setup for the #kingfisherstitchalong blocks. I’ve got lots of blocks already made that I haven’t shown you yet. I carry this little clear case around (shown right) with some threads, snips, pre-basted blocks, etc and stitch on the couch 😆looking forward to finishing some today after my nephews 3rd birthday party 🎉 .

Yes! This little monster is finished! ‘Louvre’ finishes at 35 1/2” x 45 1/2”, quilted using @aurifilthread Mint Ice (2800). Dense organic curved lines for the win! I wish you could touch, feel and see the illusion of the lines...pictures don’t do it justice! I’m a little bit in love with it!

Thursday’s #summerstashbustingchallenge was to make a plan for our scraps (see blog— link in profile)! I’ve been turning mine into a modified version of @quiltville_bonnie ‘s #scrapuserssystem (swipe for a pic), and y’all have had a lot of really awesome questions about it! But why ask me when you could ask the Queen of Scraps herself?? Therefore, Bonnie and I are going live on Facebook tonight at 8pm EST! We’ll be on the String & Story Facebook page (link in profile), and it’s guaranteed to be a double trouble, quiltin’ good time! 💃🏽💃🏽 See you soon! 🎉

Matching #threads is very important. Aurifil 50wt are perfect for piecing and quilting. During sewing, I have used several colors that perfectly match the Kona Cotton Solids. I think that irregular grid quilting looks pretty good.

"Disappearing Crayons" is the name of my latest pattern. It is not entirely my style, but I like the final result.
The pattern is made in Electric Quilt Program.
I was working with Kona Cotton Solids by Robert Kaufman.
The quilt is piecing and quilting with Aurifil 50wt. 🖍️✂️

Early morning ferry stitching with @aurifilthread 80wt. I’ve been sewing these tiny @libertylondon hexies together with no specific end game. Just a grab and go hand stitching project that’s been 5 years in the making...it measures 4” x 10” 😂😂. If there was any doubt about how slow I am at hand stitching.

Remember back to last week when I pulled out a bright rainbow of 12wt @aurifilthread? This mini mini quilt for one of my Patrons is the result! I have been wanting to try a quilting motif based transparency idea for a while, and it was fun to run with the idea!

My #arizonabreezequilt is home from the UK and @lovequiltingmag HQ. It’s still surreal that it is in issue 62 and now it’s here! 🇬🇧The issue is still only available in the UK and DIGITALLY (📲only $5.99 that way!) currently. I’ll let you know when it starts hitting store shelves in the US. 🇺🇸

I am using so many 50wt and 40 wt @aurifilthread shades while piecing these #kingfisherquilt blocks for the stitch-a-long. Using colorful threads makes hand stitching more fun! 😆🌈 Plus the small spools are easy to travel with. 💜

As much as I love you @aurifilthread, I’ve being trying to kill this spool for the last 3 days! It’s been on and off the machine but just won’t end. I’m hoping some hand sewing in the sun will finish it off! This 2021 shade is one of my go-to colours for piecing, so don’t worry, there’re a few more spools waiting in the wings for the next project...or 10! #aurifil #aurifilthread #aurifilartisan

My daughter was talking to me recently about my job... because she couldn’t really understand it; she knew I liked sewing, but what did that have to do with text messages? who do I text all day? How many texts do I send? Eventually the penny dropped, and I explained what the word textile means 😂 Oh Amélie, you lovely, funny little pilchard

Meet Super Softie 💥 She’s here to save the world and shatter all those myths about sewing with kids.
Myth #2: Little kids can’t sew

Fact: Little kids CAN sew and they love it!

Fact: Never underestimate what kids can do when they want to.
I must admit that I once was a believer in the little kids can’t sew myth 😱
When Yiscah was 3 she asked if she could sew something. I told her she was too little 😂 but she insisted. I gave in and boy did she prove me wrong. She sewed a simple little purse and I never told her she was too little for anything again.

Please stay tuned for Super Softie’s next myth busting post 💥

And then there were 4 (blocks) in my #SewologyBOM quilt! I’m not entirely sure how I feel about the white seam ripper blade, but I’m going to go with it...for now. 😂 I paired @alisonglass #agKaleidoscope fabric in Salmon, Shrimp, and Poppy with Daisy and Charcoal to make the block.

Milk & Cookies is block 2 of the Splendid Sampler designed by Rebecca Bryan and boy is it a fun one. It’s a great mix of appliqué and piecing. Great opportunities for fussy cutting. Fabrics include Saturday Morning, Meraki, Metropolis and Grunge Seeing Stars with a dash of Behind the Scenes wovens from Jen Kingwell. I used 50wt Aurifil for the piecing and 80wt for the appliqué. Visit thesplendidsampler.com for the free pattern and get to stitchin’! #basicgrey #thesplendidsampler #thesplendidsamplerdesigner #basicgreyfabric #modafabrics #aurifil #aurifilthread #aurifilartisan

Do you struggle to get started? Or maybe find it difficult to stay on track and keep motivated? Are you in more of a positivity place/keep going crescent mood or are you sitting in daydream drive? Either way, here’s just the map for you!
.
As this is my third A to Z picture, I decided to use a different layout this time - since starting to make these pictures, I’ve discovered there are a surprising number of layout variations on - who knew?! .
The next picture I make for this series (once I finish this one off of course!) will be on a larger scale, as this time I’ll be making one of the street maps inside the street atlas. And if you are local (or maybe even if you aren’t, but fancy a visit) you can watch me make it; Bristol Museum is hosting a stage of the V&A Woman’s hour craft prize touring exhibition, and I am very exited to have been selected to work in the make space attached to the show on the 19th July - which is my news for just a card week day 4!

Made using a selection of my beloved @aurifilthread and @libertylondon Lawns on my @janomeuk SMD3000

New summer blazer! 🌞 Light gray linen with floral cotton lawn lining 🌸 It’s my new favorite piece of clothing, ever! Swipe to see more of the inside lining 👆↔️💐

This was by far the most ambitious thing I’ve made, and I’m so happy with the results! Learned a lot of new techniques to up my garment sewing game 🏆

I adapted my #Burda6872 jacket pattern, adding functioning lined vents to the sleeves, changing the lapel shape and adjusting the lined back vent 📐🛠️ Used a light flannel for sleeve heads and skipped the shoulder pads. Fabrics are #robertkaufman #essexlinen and #londoncalling ✂️ Stitched together with #aurifil 50 wt dive gray, 40 wt for button holes. (Still waiting on buttons in the mail 📭)

Paper Kites pattern doesn’t have to be all bright and bold.
I made a calming Gleaned version and turned it into a cushion.
I love it when the same pattern looks totally different with different fabrics.

I made this sweet little twinkly star block for @3rdstoryworkshop ‘s #oursongquilt project (more info below). Swipe to see her beautiful quilt design. I met Andrea & other members of the @_maritimemqg last year in Halifax while on a teaching tour. They certainly represent a fun, positive quilting community!
⭐️⭐️⭐️
What does the quilting community mean to me? Well, that’s a very long list. This community is where I create, work, relax, travel, learn, teach, share, collaborate, volunteer and organize. It’s where I feel supported, understood and appreciated. Through my retreat business, teaching and guild affiliations, I’ve found a secondary calling as a human connector; I enjoy watching personal & professional relationships flourish after I’ve made introductions and appreciate when others do the same for me.
⭐️ ⭐️⭐️
A collaboration between Andrea @3rdstoryworkshop and songwriter @themeaghansmith, #oursongquilt celebrates community and the passions that connect us. You can get the song, pre-order the quilt pattern and fabric kit, get limited-edition swag (enamel pin!), and share your community's story in the music video through this project!

Day 3 of just a card week is all about community. .
One of the things I find incredible about Instagram is the number of free motion embroidery artists I speak to on a regular basis. This to me, is quite exceptional for a few reasons; firstly because if I explain what I do in every day life, people usually ask if I can teach their kids to sew, take up their trousers or make them some curtains (it’s safe to say that I cant do any of these things. I’m not patient and I can’t measure or sew straight lines 😂) .
But it’s much more than that. On the face of it, and at the very simplest level, we are competitors. All making and selling something that - while looking very different - is essentially very similar. It could be horrible, it could be bitchy. But it’s neither of those things. It’s a community; we chat, we compare notes, we wonder why our sewing machines did that, we share advice and experience, we support and encourage each other and celebrate each other’s success. And I for one think that’s amazing. .
Social media can get some pretty bad press, but I am really thankful for the community that I’m part of. I’m going to tag some of these friends over on stories today (which I loathe doing by the way, because I’m so desperately worried that I’ll accidentally forget someone!) We’re all so different and similar all at once. Which is true whatever you make and however you make it, which is what @justacard is all about. And all totally champion makers 😘
.
Ps this is one of my new cards, and my absolute favourite.. don’t forget all printed items have 10% off for just a card week .

As much as I looove quilts, I also love making smaller projects. Preferably bags and pouches. And of course all in pink, if I get away with it 💓.

This is a kantha quilted #weebrawbag I made for my daughter a couple days ago and I’m so glad she loves it, too. I filled it up with little crafty bibs and bobs and hope this will keep her busy over the summer hols... 🤞🏻💓💓💓.

Anybody ever start another version of the same quilt before the first ones finished? 😂❤️💛💚💙💜💗💟💕🐕🐾 I thought I would pull out my original Squircle Quilt from last year and give it a good gander before I start writing the pattern for the version that will be in my upcoming book from @bluestarpress. It's all quilted up with @aurifilthread and the binding is sewn to the front but it's only about a quarter stitched to the back 😂
2nd versions of unfished quilts seem to be a pattern with me. My last finish was the 3rd version of a quilt where the original is still just a top in the drawer. Luckily she'll soon be longarmed by my good friend, @beansy_quilts who insisted that she's too pretty to not be out in the world being enjoyed and loved. I can't wait to see what she cooks up 😀
As soon as I hand my final book manuscript over to my publisher in August - first on my list is to show my UFO mountain some love 🕺🏼Hopefully I won't get distracted by a shiny new project that I just have to make before then 🤣💕 The CEO, 🐕 Diane Keaton stars in the first pic because she was busy insisting on pets while i was hanging up the quilt to ponder if any changes should be made from how I constructed the original.
If you swipe, there a close up of some of the pretty pink Liberties in the quilt, a peonie 🌸 that's sitting on my counter top, a few shots of flowers I've taken this week with the new camera lens I bought myself for my birthday a few weeks back (I love the bokeh effect - smooth buttery backgrounds it makes), a reminder that I'll be teaching Social Sewing at @gothamquilts this Saturday evening (come hang out with me in NYC 🗽 and let's sew whatever you like!) and of course another shot of Diane's signature, "I need hugs and kisses immediately" face. 🐕😏 I'll have a @quiltybox giveaway up before the end of the week so stay tuned for that - It's a great one this month!

Happy Tuesday! 🎉💕 xoxo, Justin

Working on my latest quilt (solids & HSTs of course) and I’m a bit in love with this one. Turns out working with snow instead of white isn’t too bad... 😏
5 more colours to go... 💕🌷🌸

I can’t believe I finished my #machdeinding2018 #diybackpack 🤩 in time. It was a lot more work than expected (involving sewing the lining in by hand 😬) but it was all so worth it. I already have a girl that would happily declare it her own if I would let her. 😁 but NOOOOO WAY 🙅🏻‍♀️

New thank you cards to accompany the lovely orders I receive, have long been on my to do - and to make - list. I was doing some admin last week, and, like the procrastination queen that I am, managed to make a sketch for this picture instead of writing a bio about myself (aka the worlds worst job known to introverts). I’d say that this sums up perfectly what the @justacard campaign means to me.
.
Also, a reminder that to celebrate just a card week there is 10% off all of the printed items in my shop (link in bio) including the fab new greetings cards I’ve just added

It’s been a long time. But I spent some productive time in the studio today and here’s what I have to show you all. Another face and some part of the turban done. So happy just to be back at the studio!!! Spent 7 hours on it today bringing the total up to 149.
Cannot wait to go back tomorrow. .

I did it ..... l cut up my Aurifil thread card and am now left wondering why l didn't do it sooner 🤔 I have also sorted my thread storage so l don't have it collecting dust anymore, that can't be good for the sewing machine right?.... more on the blog, link is in my profile. #aurifilthread #aurifilfloss #studiostorage #labellelane #aurifilartisan #sewingroom #sewingspace

Happy Father's Day! You have been gone almost 11 years and I miss you every day! My dad, a Marine and a beginning of a Corps legacy!

Wow! Day 1 in La Spezia with some very dedicated and committed seamstresses. We are having so much fun! I was interviewed for Italian TV! I was greeted and welcomed to the city by an official from La Spezia! They are treating me like a rock star! I am so touched and it has moved me to tears.
