Friday Night Sew In

Handmade by Heidi

Tonight is Friday Night sew in and I'm hoping that DH will bugger off into the workshop and I can get busy doing some quilting on that cushion, if he doesn't I'll be sitting and sewing up some Lozenges.

I've been quite naughty.... I didn't take much persuasion but I signed up for

I love Craftsy courses and this comes with a piece of cake pattern, a hashtag pattern, a HST/charm pack design yourself and the SWOON pattern...how fab is that and currently 25% off with this link

I've watched the intro and how to cut and piece the piece of cake pattern. I didn't want to buy more fabric so instead of using a layer cake as recommended I've cut into my quilt block fabric stash and some solids.... Last night I cut it all out and am hoping to cut some of the neutral colours over the weekend so I'm ready to start piecing it.


And this afternoon I have been busy making cakes, there are Victoria Sandwiches with cherry jam, sponge cake with strawberry icing and coffee and walnut cakes with icing too :) I need to practice my piping more but tbh we all prefer the cakes without icing on lol...

  2. I've just signed up for that one too! I have a "punctuation" by American Jane jelly roll that I haven't been able to decide what to do with - and now do! (I'm also hoping it will help with the piecing of my Swoon Blocks - they have been a bit frustrating!)
    The cakes look very yummy. Did you use the Lakeland loose bottom tin?

  4. I signed up for that class too! I watch the first lesson, but haven't gotten to the first quilt yet. I have a couple of layer cakes and lots of neutrals so when I finally have the time to start cutting, I'll be all set! Love those cakes! Yummy. :-)
