Binding is going onto my first of two Sewcial Bee Sampler quilts! This first one is made with Bountiful fabrics From @artgalleryfabrics and I'm in love with my Perennial Optimism floral print for the backing!!!! Office supply binder clips hold the binding secure while I hand stitch the turned binding using the perfect color match @aurifilthread โค๏ธ #sharonhollanddesigns #sharonhollandquilts #SewcialBeeSampler #artgalleryfabrics #aurifilforagf #aurifil50wt

Another set of bee blocks! I am so excited to put all of my blocks together now. I love the colors and I can't wait to see how they work together in the overall design!

So far there are 792 pieces of fabric in this quilt with 132 waiting to be sewn into this top. As I'm sure you know, that means I'm 86% done sewing my Cobblestone quilt top. Pattern on @aquiltisnice 's blog. #ihavethisthingwithquilts #quiltersofinstagram

And away this one went to my sweet friend Cassie, who says I can't say that I'm not a hand quilter anymore๐Ÿ˜Œ. I'm so happy to have completed this old beauty for her. Also I've included a shot of the label she made and a very early pic of the underside of the quilt top, which I painstakingly trimmed to avoid all of those red threads showing through the front. Such a favoriteโค๏ธ .

Christmas in July is in full swing... my lovely mama is working on making some crochet embellishments for these stockings and I am stock piling stuff for an Christmas handmade market. Not traditional Christmas fabrics but I love the result. #libertylondon #libertylondonfabric #vintage #vintagefabric #christmas #christmasstockings #quilted #handmade #handmadehustle #handmadeisbetter #handmadewithlove #selfmade #quiltersofinstagram #makersgonnamake #makersmovement #ihavethisthingwithquilts #ribbon #lace #marketprep #madeincanada #yqrmakers #workingmystashoff #cottonandsteel #cottonandsteelbasics

Trimmings :: Five more snail's trail blocks up on the wall and little pretty bits left on the cutting mat. ๐ŸŒŠ

Can you imagine strolling through an outdoor antiques fair and coming upon this beauty? That's what happened to me last summer on vacation in #CapeCod. I called my Mom to gush about how beautiful it was, but how I couldn't afford it, and she instructed me to buy it immediately and said that she would contribute towards it as a birthday present to me. The seller said it was a wedding gift for her great aunt in the 1920s, and someone I talked to about appraising it said she thought some of the fabric dated back to the 1890s! I love and treasure it, although I need to work on displaying it more prominently. .

Improvised paper pieced quilt top. Not sure it's fully working. Is it a bit spiky looking? The points are deliberately not perfectly matching as i was trying to be looser in style but i find it jarring.Think idea needs further developing...colours hard to capture too in this bright sun. The navy is lighter and the jade green softer. Used Kona Solids Creamsicle, Nautical & Pool. #quiltingwip #quilts #modernquiltinglove #modernquilt #ihavethisthingwithquilts #quiltingfun #quiltingkeepsmesane #konacottonsolids #quiltsofinstagram #makemodern
