My Recent Sewing Adventures

Just catching you up on some of my recent sewing!

I was delighted to complete my 13th Jane Austen Quilt Collection designs called “Barton Park”.

This quilt has taken me longer than usual as I started it way back before Covid and had to put it away during the lockdowns to produce online classes and small project patterns for sale through my website. 

All of the English paper piecing and hand applique has been achieved using my favourite 50 weight Aurifil cotton threads in colours matching my fabrics. I collected gorgeous pinks, yellows, blues and greens for this quilt, bordered by a stunning Dutch Heritage border fabric.  I also used my 50 weight in the top and bobbin of my machine to piece the whole quilt together.

I took the quilt to Show and Tell this week at The Quilting Queen in Penrith, a lovely shop where I teach. I was very pleased with the response from the ladies.

I also showed a new European pillow sized cushion cover called “Summer in Chelsea”, made with the upcoming Tilda range “Pie in the Sky”, to be released next February.

I am now taking a break for Christmas and New Year, hoping to get lots of stitching time on new small projects and also design a major piece to work on next year.  Here is a glimpse of what I am playing with, English paper piecing using Aurifil 50 weight threads.

Happy stitching everyone!  K x
