Moving house, Getting Internet and Back to Blogging

Phew! Ive had a whirl wind couple of months, with moving house and all that goes with it. I think the hardest thing (after the influx of paperwork and boring jobs) is packing up my sewing room and starting again. My new sewing room is luckily about the same size as my last, except without a robe :( so there goes all of my storage space! But that's another story for another post.

I've been hanging to sew for almost 2 months, and knitting and crochet has held me over until last night when I thought " I don't care how many boxes are piled up in this room! I'm going to sew!!!".... and off I went. My god, If there was any type of motivation to get me going to set up my new room , that was it!

So here is a (bad) photo of my the single block that I produced, Taken from Tula Pink's City Sampler 100 Modern Quilt Blocks. I need to find my camera!

After making the block I just had to jump on Illustrator and plan out my design for an entire quilt! I'm thinking a toddler or baby sized quilt for this one. Even though I've had my heart set on making an awesome block sampler quilt, I just couldn't help playing with the color and variations to create these.


I think I may go with the second of these, since it almost gives an optical illusion (tromp l'oeil) effect. I'm really drawn to optical illusions for quilt inspiration like the few below.

How cool would they look as a quilt!!!

What do you think?


  1. The last one is my favorite design. It's hypnotizing! Which one is your favorite?

    1. Hmmm, I really can't decide! I may have to go for the black and white, I'm intrigued to know if it would work!

  2. Amazing tips, thank you so much for this post. It’s really necessary to make sure that you can take care and take the time to do things correctly when moving house.
    One way of reducing stress when moving is to use a self storage company, that you don’t have to move everything at once and it can make the move more manageable.
