My Spooky Spiderweb Wall Hanging Quilt

Hi! My name is Julia and this is my way too much neglected blog. I wonder, would this be the turning point? Maybe. Or maybe not. But I love to share my love for quilting and creating with the world, so here I am.

I love Halloween. Even though I live in Italy and this is not originally part of my tradition, it's still something I feel deeply connected to. I guess it has something to do with my year as an exchange student in Vermont: I lived Halloween for real, on my own skin, even partecipating to an Halloween musical in the woods at night with a path of carved and glowing pumpkins so something sticked with me.

I've seen quite a lot Hexagon Halloween quilts all over the web and I gave a look to some tutorials. It did seem like a pretty cool project but everything was way too colorful for me this time (THIS TIME: I love colors! The brightest the better) so I fixed my mind on a black and white spiderweb look.

I love this RileyBlake fabrics :) the spiders on white background have glo…

Moda BlockHeads

I love sew-alongs.
Discovered them last year (2016) and opened a whole new world of learning new techniques and meeting friends! 
My first one was the Splendid Sampler by Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson.

Right now I'm in love with this new one, it just started, today block 6 just came out and it's so pretty!  This sew along is weekly, every Wednesday a new block is uploaded!

I am loving this sew along so much. All my online quilting friends are doing it! I challenged myself to make the blocks only with 4 fabrics of the same line from Kansas Trouble and it's absolutely amazing.

I initially started to Quilt-As-You-Go my blocks but I'm not sure I'm loving it so I've decided to stop. I will remake the first 3 blocks and probably this will become fancy mug rugs!

Happy sewing!

Happy New Year! 2017 is starting!

Happy New Year!
2017 just started and I really hope this one will be a good one.
At least I hope it will be better than 2016.

I started the day with some sewing!
This is block 2 of Pat Sloan's Solstice Challenge, it's so much fun, this is a 12' block and I LOVE IT!
I think I found my fav block in the whole quilting world!

This evening I will clean my sewing machine from an intensive month of Christmas gifts sewing... she deserves it! :)
