Death Star EPP Pillow

Hello! This time I waited until today, Tuesday, to have these pictures to show because I couldn't have them before :)

Pattern is not mine. It's quirky granola girl and here is the link: Death Star

When I first saw this project I decided to give it a try. I was very excited! I love some handsewing!

It was a bit hard for me, a lot of small pieces and curves so I admit I put together a couple of pieces to be more comfortable. But I really enjoyed the process!

I had quite fun machine quilting the Death Star. I wanted some texture so I used a cotton batting I really love. I tried to give different texture to it.

The gift has been gifted and my friend loved it! Yay! Always happy to sew a gift to a friend who appreciates it!

The Splendid Sampler Sew Along

This week I want to talk about this wonderful project created by Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson, two wonderful quilters!

I discovered this Sew Along following Pat Sloan's quilting classroom page on Facebook. I was immediately excited so I decided to give it a try. I'm doing my blocks SCRAPPY.
It's a free Sew Along with a total of 100 blocks. Each week two blocks are released, one on Thursday and one on Sunday. It started on 14th February 2016.

This is truly a marvellous learning experience. I get to try a lot of new techniques, I discover new quilters I didn't know about, I'm inspired by what other quilters create and post on the dedicated Facebook page... it's amazing!!

I love all the blocks. Right now the last released block is number 27, I've been running behind due to sewing quite a lot of gifts, but I don't mind. During summer I'll catch up! It's not a race, it's a wonderful journey!

I'm thrilled because we're basically building a hug…

Armchair Organizer with an Hexagons Pocket

Hi everyone! I've abandoned this lovely blog of mine for almost an year, but I've decided it's time to start writing on it again. Life has been difficult in the past months but now I'm going to turn things for the best!

What is funny is that my latest post was a gift for a friend (the blue bag with the blue zipper pouch) and now this new post is also a gift for that very same friend! :)

It's an armchair organizer with an hexagons pocket and a removable pincushion! I admit I was inspired by a lot of pictures of different organizers I saw online (especially on Pinterest) but I used my own inspiration to create this final piece.

What inspired me at first was that I really wanted to make her something with hexagons. We share a great love for hexies! See that cute little monster hexie? Next week you'll now why he's there! (Spoiler!)

What I love the most is this detail. I initally thought to cut the top of the hexagons, then I decided to use the blanket stitch to sea…
