I have such a backlog of things to share that every time I think about blogging I can't decide what to share. Thought today I should just go ahead and choose a few things.  Lately I'm finding time for instagram (I'm @jenib320), but not much else in terms of sharing.  Hoping to get back on track for September.

I'll have a fun tutorial using Nordika to share with you tomorrow afternoon, seen above!

A couple weeks ago I whipped up some pouches to hold my knitting projects using Anna's open-wide zippered pouch tutorial! I made one large and one medium using Nordika and some leftover pure element triangles. They're a great instant gratification project.  And they turn out so cute!

Stitched up one of the projects for my Equilateral Triangle Class at Sewing Summit, a throw quilt.  I used Sarah Watson's Luxe in Bloom and rounded it out with some oval elements and a few other blenders. I love the way it turned out!

I've been working on two knitting projects at the moment, it's nice to switch between the two depending on my mood (or sleepiness).  This one is a hat for Michael.  I'm hoping to finish it before it gets too cold.  The other is another cowl for me!

The Fall issue of Love, Quilting & Patchwork has hit newsstands (Barnes & Noble and JoAnn) here in the U.S.! You can find an interview with me about my experience having a booth at International Quilt Market this past Spring! Make sure and check it out, there are a lot of cute projects in this issue!  You can also order copies online, here.

I went out for some thrifting on Monday for the first time in a while.  I didn't have much luck but I did find a teal vintage lotus bowl for my collection! Now I just need a red one. I had one, but I broke it, blurg!

Good Things about Today:

  1. So much eye candy, Jeni! I'm adore that triangle quilt!! Such a good mix of pattern and color.

  2. I love to see these all together here on your blog! But I know what you mean, IG is WAY easier than blogging. Instant gratification. I love your triangle quilt tons!!

  3. The Bun! Always such a cute way to wind it all up! I love each of your projects...and look forward to another tutorial that I am certain will wind up another favorite :)

  4. The quilt is divine!! colour perfection.

  5. Those pieced zipper pouches are too cute!

  6. ooo, a backlog sounds fun! Love everything of course! love the knitting too!!!! I must cast on my 2nd honey cowl. maybe i'll just go and do that right now. :)

  7. I meant to write this earlier, but I love that you pulled out that purple-y color in the quilt with the Oval Element. I love that purple, but it's only in sneaky little tiny pieces in the collection. It's like you read my mind!

  8. I like the quilt top. I like the triangles.
