Something Different

This month, I have been working on the Something Different blocks for my One Monthly Goal challenge. It was making eight blocks and setting them into the layout of the squares and rectangles underlying a Golden Spiral. I have achieved my goal (yay!) of sewing the blocks and I’ve sewn them together and quilted them so […]

Belle Rose Dresden Quilt

This post is more a photo finish than a sewing finish but, I do feel that every quilt deserves it’s own blog post! A long time ago I had a small amount of Michael Miller Belle Rose from the French Journal Collection – about a fat quarter, I think. I loved that fabric so much […]

Trunk Full of Quilts

Have you linked up with Soma at Whims and Fancies for Trunk Full of Quilts? When Soma mentioned it, my first thought was that I’d love to join in but I don’t really make many quilts. Then, when I found out wall hangings and cushions could be included so long as they are properly quilted […]

Keep Calm and Break Things…

I’d hate for you to think that I’m one those irritating people who comes along citing silly proverbs about breaking eggs when they know quite well you had no intention of making an omelette… But this is a post in praise of the breaking of things. I don’t know about you but I find breaking […]

Bird Organiser

  Bird mania continues, here at Rainbow Hare! I’ve finished this organiser for my daughter’s birthday. She’s at uni and has a small room so I hope this will be easy to hang on her wall. I sized the pockets to take A4 sized papers, a pencil case and odds and ends and notes can […]

Gingham Squares

I’ve finished up the Gingham Squares quilt! I quilted in organic straight lines, partly because I thought it would give a softer effect but mainly because I’ve done something to my back (which I hope is slowly getting better) and I couldn’t manage all the bending involved in my usual line marking. I’m not overly […]

Unicorn Days

Speak of the spring, and foison of the year, The one doth shadow of your beauty show, The other as your bounty doth appear;  (Shakespeare Sonnet 53) September. Autumn. The evenings draw in and the Mornings are cool and misty. But in the garden it’s a time of abundance. And there’s an exuberance of rich colours – […]
