Steps IV // 3

All the blocks are sewn and I have decided on the final layout. This is how I'm going to assemble the top. I'm quite satisfied with it this far and I'm wondering how the look will change once the seam allowances have shrinked them.

Steps IV // 1

I have started a new quilt. After the colorfulness of Danbar and Trip Around The World it's time for some reduced color palette. My hope is that the design will be strong enough to gain attention in a gentle way.
Also I felt it time to upcycle some old shirts again.




You can check out my Quilts page to see Danbar and TATW as well as Stepts I - III.

Trip Around The World // 11 and last!

Trip Around The World is all done and finished! I know I have said it before but This Has Been So Much Fun To Make! For the last five months working on this quilt has been such a calming and pleasant task. A truly treasured companion.

Hand pieced using the english paper piecing method and hand quilted with no frame.

rag rug // 1

Years ago I made this rug using old t-shirts cut into short strips that I hooked to a burlap.



You can check posts in 2012 in the archive on the right hand menu bar if you want to know more about the process.


Unfortunately, when after some use I later washed it in the machine it came all apart. I finished to take it apart and saved all the fabric pieces not knowing what for.



A few weeks ago I then decided that it was time for a new hand sewing project. A no brainer to work on and off just whenever I feel like. This time I'm simply folding the pieces and attach them down with a few stitches to a canvas. I first started randomly but realised quickly that it was easier for me if I pre-marked where to sew. Now I don't even need to worry to remain consistent. This rug will in the end be much fluffier than the first one. 
So I'm recycling already once recycled material.
