Let's get a sewing update!

This year, I have been doing some slow sewing in the evening, machine time seems to be a bit elusive at the moment, so I have been focussed on my Mrs Billings, inspired by my mother who has just finished hers!

Adding this hexie border really spurred me on to get the double diamond finished, it had been laying in bits for twelve months.

The diamond borders aren't attached yet, but that will happen in due course, I always thought I would finish with this border, because that final border with all the hexagons scare the heck out of me, but some how little squares and triangles have been cut out :)

And just as a break from all that pink, I busted out some other Denyse Schmidt fabrics and played around with churn dash block. Not sure what this will end up as!!

But I am loving that electric red!

....and in case you were wondering, I did get the French General Wife quilt finished and gifted, and it also had a little trip to Alice Springs last October for an exhibition. I kept the quilting fairly simple, with stippling around the centre, and straight line quilting for the rest of the quilt.

Happy quilting :)


  1. I really like all of your projects - I love red and pink! I've just started Mrs. Billings using French General fabrics, any tips?

  2. I am loving your Mrs Billings, one of my favourite colour combos - is she all hand pieced?

  3. Your Mrs Billings is absolutely stunning, the colors are just beautiful, what sewing methods did you use to make her?

  4. Your Mrs. Billings is just beautiful - love the colours! Keep going.

  5. I love your Mrs. Billings! I googled medallion quilts, and yours came up. I will have to stalk your blog, and maybe you're on IG? to find the finish. i would love to see your mom's too.
