Pinterest Adventure Day 14

I'm still going!  HAHA I know you've seen me do feathers before and I continue to look for new ways to embellish them, twist them, branch off from them etc.  I'd saved a pin with a few of these popping off a densely quilted background and decided to sit down this morning and knock this… Continue reading Pinterest Adventure Day 14

This quilt has provided lots of space for me to try out pinned ideas!  Today I finished up the chevron sections in the negative space, using simple lines marked evenly across the area to make sure the triangles were reasonably uniform.  Filling them in was so much fun!  I love the dramatic effect they give,… Continue reading Pinterest Adventure Day 13

Finally got to sit down and quilt today after putting the finishing touches on my basement reno.  I can't wait to share photos of the completed space, but I'm waiting for a new piece of equipment to arrive and I'll post when everything is set up! For now, here is today's pin, simple but cool,… Continue reading Pinterest Adventure Day 12

Pinterest Adventure Day 11

So you can see that I've missed a few days of Pinterest posts - which is allowed, right?  This adventure is flexible 🙂 I'm in the midst of a minor renovation in my basement and working on a couple of other projects, but I made a point of stitching this one out today. It was… Continue reading Pinterest Adventure Day 11

Well, this isn't about just one pin; I got a lot of work done today! I finally finished all the bigger blocks on my panel, took care of the smaller blocks as well, and then hit the circles - which I think are my favourite part of the whole quilt thus far because they're organic,… Continue reading Pinterest Adventure Day 10

I'm working my way through this sampler quilt panel, so there are a number of different block styles with various colors that I wouldn't necessarily put together myself, but in the end I think it will have a nice modern look to it. I have to admit, I'm having mixed feelings about this quilt.  Too… Continue reading Pinterest Adventure Day 9

Pinterest Adventure Day 8

I'm currently working on a sampler panel designed by Natalia Bonner for longarm quilting practice.  I work on a sit down machine, but the fills are still workable. There are lots of different shapes on this, so I'll be able to use it to try out various things I've saved and when it's all done,… Continue reading Pinterest Adventure Day 8

Pinterest Adventure Day 7

By now you'll know that, as I admitted right at the start, there will be occasional lapses in this "daily" Pinterest adventure! LOL I'm numbering the posts according to stitching days, not actual days, but since I got busy with a couple of other things at the end of the week (like finishing a quilt,… Continue reading Pinterest Adventure Day 7

My Pinterest Adventure 2018 – change of plans!

Since life is ever changing and we need to be flexible - a challenge for me but I'm getting better at it! - I've decided after much consideration that the quilting posts for My Pinterest Adventure are best suited for this website, rather than my personal blog, so I'm moving them over here. I was… Continue reading My Pinterest Adventure 2018 – change of plans!
