Having a short attention span can be very frustrating for those around me – especially if they had to pay for my new and exciting obsession each time it changed. Thankfully I am self-financing so I can indulge myself when I get over-excited over a new project. This month it’s patchwork and quilting!
A few weeks ago we had a quilter come in to the textiles department to do some workshops with the Year 9s. As a lot of my tutor group were in the workshop I decided to join in and they taught me the techniques. Oops. Since then I have grown my stash of fat quarters, bought a new rotary cutter, quilting ruler and foot for my sewing machine. I’ve made 6 large blocks of different designs and I’m planning two quilts for my friends’ children.
However its my followers on Pinterest I worry about – they must wonder why I’ve suddenly started posting image upon image of quilts and fabric!
You can see all the tutorials and inspirations I’ve posted here:
And now for some fabric porn:
