Hi to all of my quilting friends , I hope you are all having a great Monday.
Just letting you know that my Log Cabin 'She Shed' Tutorial is now up on YouTube with a free pattern download, get the FREE pattern here & have a look at my video, please don't forget to subscribe 😊
Have a great week!
Just sharing the fact that I'm not a one dimensional crafter!!!! LOL
I restored the table below, the legs were rusty, dirty, ugly and the glass top had crumbled into tiny pieces. (it was super boring in brown tiles) . Brown is not a colour in my colour wheel.!!
I decided to sand it down, paint the legs and base with copper(ish) bronze (ish) paint (with mega help from my husband) and change the top to a quilty mosaic. So I am one dimensional!!
Cannot get away from the quilt in me......
It was a fun diversion from all of my quilting. Just thought I'd share. So much better to restore and reuse than buy again. I'm super proud of how it turned out.
I used Le Page Poly Fill Pre mixed grout found here. Mosaic glass tiles found here , Goop glue found here (to glue the tiles) It took about 3 days.
How I did it?
If you want to try this project and have any questions, drop me a line through the contact tab above ! I'll be having a tea cup or a glass of wine on that table shorly 😊
Announcing my new video on YouTube coming out tomorrow- June 7. So much fun to zen draw with your sewing machine and then add beautiful, vivid colour with Derwent Inktense Pencils. They are not just for artists but also for fabric artists, textile artists, sewists', crafters and more. Have a look at my video at YouTube: Quilting In The Loft. The pattern for the whole process is also available here .
Have a great week!

Woo Hoo!! I'm excited to announce I dusted off my video/tech fears (they were growing dust elephants!) and I started a YouTube Channel with the assistance of my daughter Mallory.
I have been asked many times over the last 12 months to provide video classes. I'm starting out in JK (not literally, but you get it) with YouTube video tutorials and working on classes! Hang in there for all those who have been asking. I'm hoping for the wait to be over soon. That being said there is a lot of work that goes into the videos/ demos so please add your comments (good or bad) and subscribe so I know you are interested and it's worth your time!
The video below explains what I have happening for May and each month I will announce what is going on for video tutorials. Sometimes there will be free pattern downloads as well. My you tube channel is Quilting In The Loft. The first video comes out May 3 and the second May 17th. Have a look, I'll look forward to your comments and ANY suggestions you might have. Have a great weekend!
In this video I am excited to announce that I have started a You Tube Channel! Look up Quilting In The Loft on You Tube starting May 3, 2021 and I'll be sharing 2 videos monthly (maybe more in the future) with great tips and techniques to improve all levels of quilting skills! So long in the making, a huge learning curve, but so much fun!!. Special Thanks to my talented videographer and creative assistant Mallory Bogaert!
I know it's not sewing and/or quilting but I cannot be one dimensional. Just thought I'd share a little bit of info about my Gluten Free, Covid Baking. If we are going to be locked down, we might as well enjoy it right?
Because I wanted a treat, I made the amazing ginger snap cookies shown above on my vintage cake stand. Oh they are so good I wanted to share where I got them from. They are from the book Gluten-Free Cookies by Luane Kohnke. I have made several of her recipes including these "Ginger Molasses Cookies" ( I call them ginger snaps), her Oatmeal Almond Cookies with Dates and her No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Drops, MMMMMM for mouth watering. I'm super gluten sensitive but love sweets and these cookies satisfy my cravings.
I'm going to have to try more of her recipes! It's all cookies, hard cover, 50 crave-able recipes & gluten free basics from an accomplished gourmet baker. I just had to mention this book, I'm impressed.
For all of you gluten free bakers: If you are interested in obtaining a copy of her very affordable book , its here.
Rave reviews from me so far!
Have a great week and hang in there! We are all in this world wide pandemic together. Find stuff to do, learn something new, call a friend or family member, walk with a friend, bake, sew, quilt, craft, stay busy and stay happy! 💐
Today is the last day of my all week blog series with www.quiltsocial.com and Half Rectangle Triangles. I'm sharing with viewers how to sandwich & baste the table runner and some fantastic modern layouts for HRT's . Check it out here.
Have a great weekend! 🌷
