The fourth quilt in the series for ‘Forage’ is ‘Off the rails’. I think it might still be my favourite. I got stuck right into my @sulkythreads 12wt collection to quilt this one.
The show is open Easter Saturday and Sunday @neonparlour and there’ll be a Tenfolder there to say hi to 👋🏻

You’ve seen ‘Corporate life’ before but here it is in full - the third quilt I made for our show ‘Forage’. On @neonparlour until 28 April. Woven from shirt plackets then quilted.

I am super late to the party but sometimes it’s not until you slow down that you realise the idea is right in front of you!
I didn’t start the #100daychallenge at the beginning as I didn’t have time for a new project. Over the weekend I realised if I stitched one block a week of my small #skimmingstonesquilt in what is left of the challenge I’d have her finished - so here we go!
There’s another thing I’ve been meaning to learn which I’m going to incorporate into the challenge - but you’ll have to wait until next week’s check-in to see that.
Yes, the rest of the exhibition quilts will be posted soon ;-)

The pattern for my Skimming Stones quilt is available from my Etsy store (link in profile).

Really @quiltscornerstone you were giving me FOMO 😂
This was the first quilt I made with intention for this show. ‘The straight and narrow’ - all secondhand fabric/shirts gifted for this one. Quilting inspired by @victoriagertenbach.
All the quilts for the show are small. This one is about 40cm x 60cm

Big love to everyone who came along tonight 💕

I reckon this little quilt sketch (now called Quarter acre block) was the first thing I patched with upcycled shirts. It didn’t get quilted until last week as I wanted to include it in our Forage exhibition so you could see the starting point for my exploration of quilting with secondhand business shirts. There has been a lot sewn between this one and the sixth quilt in the show that’s for sure!

I’m so excited about the stunning dye room @korina.leoncio has spent the day putting together for our exhibition @neonparlour. It looks and SMELLS amazing!!

Scrap quilt 😂. This little one just had to be made after three days of fussy details on exhibition quilts. I think it will be getting siblings. The scraps are from a quilt made in 2015.

We’re really at the pointy end now - three days until installation and then Friday is our opening! Come and have a drink and see what we’ve been busy creating these last few months.
And if you’re headed to #aqc2019 from Friday you can get an #86tram from right out the front, up to @neonparlour and have a little excursion to see our show!

Big thanks to fellow Tenfolder @sarah.k.williams2 for all our lovely promo graphics too 😘

So progress was being made... Now I just seem to carry it back and forth in its bag a lot. Not much making going on here at the moment 😩

When we tidy up, my sisters and I have a habit of putting everything into piles - it’s genetic 🤪(hi Mum!)
This practice has now extended to my quilts and I have at least four to-be-quilt piles dotted around the house at the moment auditioning fabrics. This Sense of Place quilt for #stitcheduptextilefestival has had more than one incarnation as a pile. Let’s hope this one sticks!

Day 29 #igquiltfest @amyscreativeside - fun with fabric #textiletravels #batik #waxprint #mudresistprinting #quiltinprogress @kajjop @amyglastonbury @meridian.124
Binding, facing, facing, binding, I’ve got it all going on for our show. The only thing I do differently is a 2 1/4” binding - I just find it tidier and more streamlined than a 2 1/2”. Day 28 #igquiltfest for @amyscreativeside.
One more little quilt to bind and still one to cut out for ‘Forage’, opening in two weeks @neonparlour - getting close now!
