{ Day 20 #greatbritishquilter }...walking foot...free motion...or hand quilted? ••• Given the choice I would always hand quilt, but in reality since the majority of my quilts are commissions I sadly don’t have the time for that. As ever I get my hand quilting fix small scale in cushions... ••• @sarahashfordstudio @verykerryberry ••• #handstitched #slowstitching #sashiko #japanesestitching #wabisabi #handmade #handmadecushion #handmadepillow

I’ve been having a lot of fun making my #hexienamebadge It’s going to get its first proper outing at Stitch Gathering in a couple of weeks. These kits were devised by the clever @lorena_in_syd and we have our collaborative special edition kits with one of my screen printed panels included to make your own name badge or to give as a gift. I will have kits available to buy at Stitch Gathering but if you want to get ahead of the game and make one for the event head to my shop to purchase...and if you want to get WAY ahead of the game and make one for The Thread House retreat head over there too! ••• #karenlewistextiles #scr#screenprintedfabric #screenprinted #personalised #namebadge #magnetic #hexies #englishpaperpiecing #epp #crafting #lorenainsyd

{ Day 18 #greatbritishquilter }...the project I made to keep... ••• I make a lot of quilts for magazines that I do get to keep but very rarely get to make a quilt specifically for us. Instead I make A LOT of cushions...a great quick sewing itch fix... ••• @sarahashfordstudio @verykerryberry ••• #handmade #cushion #pillow #indigodyed #sashiko #aurifilthread #shibori #patchwork #sewing #crafting

{ Day 17 #greatbritishquilter }...my sewing machine ••• My Juki is my pride and joy. We had a little fall out earlier this year thanks to a not so great machine servicer but she’s back on track now and back to being the workhorse that she is. I use my machine every day...most days all day long so I need a machine that’s up to the job and this one certainly is that...straight stitching forwards and back at a fair old pace...a sheer joy...oh and there’s an even bigger reveal of my wonderful quilt by @quietplay that provides daily inspiration and pleasure... ••• @sarahashfordstudio @verykerryberry ••• #juki #sewingmachine #quilting #foundationpaperpiecing #modernquilt #blueberryparkfabric #karenlewistextiles #robertkaufman

{ night time stitching } It’s been a busy ol’ weekend and I’m finally sitting down doing some slow stitching on my speedy make. That’s the lovely thing about pillow making...done and completed before you know it...and now finishing it off with some sashiko stitching while watching Bodyguard...5/6 episodes and I’m still not sure. What do you think? Are you watching? ••• #han#handmadegetaway #curvedpiecing #robertkaufman #karenlewistextiles #blueberryparkfabric #alisonglass #indigodyed #shibori #shiboridyed #handdyed #tierneybarden #quilting #patchwork #sewing #crafting #handmade #sashiko #sashikostitching #handstitching #aurifil #aurifilthread

{ Day 16 #greatbritishquilter }...quilt on location... ••• Yesterday I finished this gift...way ahead of schedule...if you call 3 days way ahead of schedule...I call it PHEW...and took it to the field next door to photograph...that was even before I realised today’s Great British Quilter prompt! I have to say I really hope the recipient loves this quilt as much as I do...I think there may be more of this quilt design in the making... ••• @sarahashfordstudio @verykerryberry ••• #karenlewistextiles #blueberryparkfabric #robertkaufman #cloud9fabrics #cottonandsteel #rileyblake #imagingermonkey #artgalleryfabrics #handdyedfabric #tierneybarden #handmade #handquilting #aurifil #slowstitching #qui#quiltingon #quilting #patchwork #sewing #crafting #ninepatch #modernquilt
