Hello my lovelies. I hope you’re all enjoying some kind of fine weather. Here in my little corner of the northeast of England, the sun is shining and the garden are growing greener and the blooms are beautiful.

I promised I would be today with some kind of progress. Well here it is.

Circle Quilt


My circle quilt which was inspired by one of my art journal pages is layered and ready for quilting. I finished the fine hand appliqué work over the weekend and added the scrappy pieced border this morning.


I went on to layer it up in readiness for machine quilting. It measures 41” square. And I purchased absolutely nothing extra to complete this project. It feels so good to use up what I’ve got. All to often I have started a project with the best intention of using up what I’ve got but find that I haven’t got enough of anything to complete it. This time I seemed to have everything I used at hand! It may never happen again. So, I will enjoy this sense completing something with any extra purchases just this once.


I have already started planning my next project which is also inspired by my art journal pages. This time I hope to produce a small row quilt which I can use as a wall hanging. I have a few blank wall spaces in my hallway that are crying out to be filled. I have chosen the a few art journal pages to work from and I look forward to drawing the blocks over the next few days.

Well, my lovely friends, I suppose that’s my news for today. I hope you all have a super cosy evening doing something you truly enjoy. Until next time,

Let’s all keep on stitching; it really does make life better.

  1. Lovely Lucie & inspiration really does come from everything round us. I’m definitely using my stash & if I run out of something I do a little reincarnating of the pattern or a few substitutes to take its place. So far, so good. Aren’t you using the big machine for quilting? Looks like you’ve pin basted ready for your domestic machine. Take care, stay safe & hugs.


    1. Hi Susan, necessity is the mother of invention. My stash is quickly disappearing as I have pieced several projects without purchasing much of anything. I shall be using my domestic machine to quilt this one in order to get some practice in. Thanks for popping in today x


    1. Aaaw thanks Mary. I think once it’s quilted and bound I will like it more. It was fun to make, not very taxing. And I love every bit of freezer paper applique work. It’s the perfect armchair project whi,e watching mindless TV in the evening. Stay safe Mary x
