Here is some of my quilted Christmas stocking I have made over the last couple of months.
This Christmas Stocking is so popular, that I literally made hundreds of them. These are just a few samples of what I did. They are quite big, you can fit a small child into one.
I think I need to start sewing some more ready for this Christmas, as you know it is just around the corner. Just 8 months to go.
Recently I tested some Quilt pattern for a couple of people, from the Project of Doom group.
That was great fun, the finished patterns will be worked in to my Project of Doom quilt.
Dobby the house elf, he will be peeking around the side of the book case.
You can find all these patterns here.
A sleeping dragon baby, to represent the dragons in the Harry Potter Movies and Books. She is Rosie and will be sleeping on top of my Book Case.
“Yes, Harry Potter!” said Dobby at once, his great eyes shining with excitement. “And if Dobby does it wrong, Dobby will throw himself off the topmost tower, Harry Potter!”
Week three in the Quilt along, Project of Doom.
Jennifer decided to make to new variations for the block, one for the good side and one for the bad side, the dark arts. This was fun, and I decided to also make the dark arts block, as my quilt will be double the size of the plan POD quilt. So the dark arts blocks will be on the outer edges of the quilt.

Inspiration hit me, after reading Jennifer Ofenstein’s UFO to do list for 2015 over at sewhooked.com.
I have so many unfinished quilts lying around, that I forgot about or didn’t have time for. I decided to make my own UFO (unfinished object) list for 2015, that I need to work on.
Some of the objects are USO (Un-started Objects) or WIP (Work in progress), BOM (block of the month) FIS (Fandom in Stitches)
I was quite shocked when I realized how many projects I had lying around waiting to be finished. Here the are, no. 1 is priority number 1, the rest is just in random order. I have also added links to some of the projects, if anyone is interested in joining in.
The link to all these patterns is here.
Busy being tested, then I will attached a link for the patterns.
As you can see I have a lot to do. But it is so worth it.
Will keep everyone updated on my progress with some photo’s, as I get through the list.
It is with great excitement that the new Project of doom Quilt a long (POD Quilt a long 2015) for 2015 was announced late last year. The super vibe that swept through the Facebook Group Project of Doom, (click on the name or here to go through and find out about this fantastic quilting project) was and still is awesome. The POD is based on the Harry Potter Movies. Yes it is still very popular.
On 7 January 2015 we received our first pattern Week 1 on the Fandom of Stitches Website. Once a week every Wednesday we will get a new pattern to make, until the 30th week, when we will be working on stitching all the blocks together to make up the complete quilt that will look like a bookcase.
This is my attempt for Pattern Week 1, which is found here.
I absolutely love quilting, and especially paper piecing. Every week I will add a new post with my new finished block and a link to the pattern.
Unfortunately I did not think about showing how I sewed the block. But will include it into my next post based on POD 2015.
A recent return from a heart-wrenching trip early in December, inspired me to make a “Remembrance” Quilt, not sure what to call it.
After color sorting through the scraps brought back from my trip, I decided on a lovely purple scrap quilt block. Deciding against making a full-sized quilt, I made a runner, the accent piece you put at the end of your bed?
Each little purple scrap is 2 inches x 2 inches. With all the measurements, you need to add a 1/4 inch seam allowance. Just measure the white strips to match the sides of the purple, stitch them all together. Wah la.
This quilt is made in honor of my aunt Estella Alexandria Du Preez, whom I loved very much. She was a quilter and a seamstress most of her life, and I loved messaging with her my latest creations, and pinning stuff from Pinterest with her. She sadly passed away on 8 December 2014 from advanced Leukemia, Lymphoma and a Tumor on her stomach. These scraps were from her fabric stash I brought back with me after the funeral. I really miss her a lot, especially today, when I finished my first quilt after she passed away and I wanted to message her a picture, then realized she’s not there anymore. I had a little cry, then decided to dedicate this post to Aunt Stella.
