"Charcoal Lane"....

is the name of my first quilt finish of 2020!

My Juki has been in for a service and repair.

 Events transpired to eke it out to three months! 

My service centre was down a man, the part it 

needed took some time to source and everything 

closes down over Christmas too!

So yesterday I couldn't wait to get sewing!

I chose a square spiral following the log cabin block 

layout- simple but effective.

I want to use as much of my stash as possible this 

year, but often don't have WOF for binding.

So I used Linda @flourishpalms tutorial for 

Two different stripes for the binding.

I still need to master the technique, but I am 

pleased with the overall effect.

And the name- a Paul Kelly song I heard for the first 

time today!

Three months between quilt finishes was WAY too 


Dimensions" 45" square

Quilt finish #1 for 2020
#120 all-time quilt
Improvised log cabin

Happy sewing!

Two weeks...

is a long time between posts! 

For no particular reason, I have not been very 

productive in the sewing department this year.

But I'm still here, doing what I can when I can!

I enjoyed some mindless piecing, making these 

'quilt-as-you-go' panels,

turning them into zippy pouches.

They are now waiting for some worthy recipients.

I have owned four "Merrily" panels for a long time,

and recently came across a free pattern online that I 

thought I could use with them.

And I'm thrilled with how it turned out!

It is now 37" square.

I really wish I had more of that gorgeous red and 

green 'stars' fabric.

I think it would be awesome as a large 74" bed quilt, 

using the other three panels!

If you'd like to make your own, the pattern is on the 

Art Gallery Fabric website here

Its name is "Snuggle"- pretty perfect, hey?
