I Love Quilting and Sewing Blog Tour + a GIVEAWAY!

**GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED**

The Fat Quarter Shop are celebrating National Sewing & Quilting month with a fun blog tour and I was happy to take up the challenge and answer a few questions!

I decided to make myself a laptop bag from the fantastic book Quilting on the Go by Jessica Alexandrakis. I challenged myself by changing the English Paper Pieced shapes to 60° diamonds and squares, which Jessica used so beautifully in her Tanuki stripe throw, and adding magnetic closures. I have never used magnetic snaps before, it was super easy thanks to this noodlehead tutorial, but I did have to wrangle with turning the lining through to install them rather than adding buttons at the end as per the pattern!


The book shows you how to easily make a laptop case based on the measurements of your laptop and mine fits perfectly.


I used Cotton and Steel scraps to make the case and hand quilted it using #8 perle thread in simple straight lines.


I also decided to add some detail to the flap by stitching some pluses, inspired by Rachael from Blue Mountain Daisy and her beautiful stitches.


This was #10 on my FAL list (though I'm not going in numerical order unfortunately!!).


I spend most evenings (and nap times) quilting and I always feel happy and satisfied when I've been able to have time to sew. The Fat Quarter Shop created this banner for me, it's my nod to the famous Goonies* 'it's our time' speech - quilting is my time; to relax, create and do what I love and get excited about the possibilities.


How did you start quilting/sewing?

I started quilting just before I started this blog, encouraged by my cousin and my Aunty. I remember doing some blackwork embroidery when I was young and using a sewing machine at school. I love trying new techniques and currently hand quilting, hand piecing, EPP and cross stitch are my favourite. I like the slower pace and have a couple of hand sewing projects lined up to take me through the winter!

When was the first time you knew that you were a quilter/sewer?

I think after I had made a few quilts and wasn't about to stop!

Do you have any sewing/quilting horror stories or faux pas?

I am constantly making mistakes but none of them too horrific and honestly I don't care if I mess up, it helps me learn. I do know I have to stop when I'm tired, too often I sew things back to front, upside down or just wrong!

What advice would you give to someone who’s just starting out in sewing/quilting?

I think it helps to have someone teach you in person, a friend or a class. There's so many amazing bloggers that post tutorials and tips that you can learn from. It's important to sew things you love, using fabric and combinations that make you happy, and don't worry about getting it 'right', play and enjoy!



The Fat Quarter Shop have released a super cute 'Color My Heart' quilt pattern that you can download for free here.

  15. Hi Lucy, that laptop case looks great! Love the pattern and the hand quilting.
    I also tend to make mistakes when I'm tired. Recently I cutted the end of a binding too short and had to sew in a small piece. Better to do some mindless quilting or hand sewing in the evening.
    Thank you for the chance to win! That is a beautiful fabric bundle! :-)

  21. I think my next challenge is English paper piecing. I love foundation paper piecing, but haven't tried EPP yet. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  22. How to challenge myself -- I really need to try out free motion quilting. All of the machine quilting I've done has been with a walking foot. Regarding The Goonies, I know a lot of people love that movie but I've never watched it for some reason.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I resized a pattern does that count?

  26. Hi Lucy! I'd love to learn how to hand quilt someday. The last time I tried it, I was left in tears by how the back turned out. Let's just say I never mastered the rocking motion. Maybe someday I'll get it right...

    Thanks for the chance to win that pretty bundle!

  35. I am challenging myself to make a large (bedsized) quilt in a quilt-as-you-go method I designed myself, with four large groups of blocks, batting and backing quilted separately, and then joined on the fronts with machine, batting whipstitched together by hand, and backing edges sewn by hand. Right now I am in the middle and am already - lol...- figuring out how to cover up or 'move' 4 tiny cuts I made in the backing, and taking out about a quarter inch of stitching on the bottom of every quilting line. Challenge!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I am learning to FMQ with my walking foot, and that is a challenge and a half for me!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I would like to challenge myself by learning how to machine quilt. Nothing fancy, just the basics; I've never done it and it intimidates me (I was kind of put off by a friend's comment) and I'm afraid that I'll mess up whatever I've spent so many hours on - but I really do need to figure it out!

    ReplyDelete
  73. A number of years ago I took a millinery class at our local college. Part of the class was crafting hats for 2 productions and I was asked to make a special hat for one of the department heads. She wanted a pillbox type made of mink. MINK!?! I'd never even handled the stuff!!!! But I overheard my instructor say, "if you show her a picture she can make anything." Do you know how empowering that has been? So now as I see quilt designs I want to make and I think they are too challenging, I remember and go for it. Thanks.

  140. I love your laptop bag! I'm afraid I can't think of how I want to challenge myself in quilting at the moment. Not because I can do everything but because I do so little that the challenge really is to keep making progress with things and not be still making them three years later!!!
