The Aussie WIP Wednesday :: Vine Lines

Hi everyone; thank you to Rachel for letting me come over to her blog and guest host the Aussie WIP Wednesday Linky Party.


I’m Linden from Vine Lines Quilting; I’m a quilter, blogger, virtual assistant, wife and mother of two small children.  I also knit and enjoy cross stitch and tapestry when time allows.


The theme was definitely colourful crochet again this week.  I admire those who can crochet; I’ve tried a number of times but I need to be holding a needle in both hands!


Skipper from Skipper’s Creative Expressions has been working on more gorgeous samples for her class:


Caitlin at Noughts and Crosses Stitches is making excellent progress on her blanket:

She’s also working on a really beautiful cross stitch project.  The fabric she’s working on looks stunning;  I’m really looking forward to seeing the progress on this one:

On a quilty note, I love the colours Kylie from Little Black Marks chose for this colourful quilt for her niece.


This week I’ve been working on two major projects.  I launched the Aussie Aviatrix Quilt-a-long last week.  Rachel is one of the fabulous bloggers joining me in the blog hop; you can read her post on 15 October.  Cutting out the fabric has been a marathon; I’m looking forward to starting the actual sewing! I’m using Emma Jean Jansen’s beautiful Terra Australis 2 fabrics for mine.  I love the bright, funky modern Australian prints.


I’m also pattern testing for Quiltjane from Want It, Need It, Quilt.  She has designed a gorgeous pattern called Jungle Ave Bloom, which she originally made using Sara Lawson’s Jungle Ave fabric range.  I’m making mine in some Tilda fabric I’ve had for quite a while.  Here’s the first set of petals:


I’m using Paula Storm’s “Needleturn without the Needleturn” applique method which I learned at a workshop with her earlier in the year.

Finally, I’ve got a knitting finish!  I’ve been watching the Outlander series with some friends each Thursday night and have been knitting this long-term WIP.  I finally finished it off this week – it needs blocking but the knitting is done.  The pattern is called Wingspan and can be found on Ravelry.


Thank you again to Rachel for letting me guest host this week; I do hope you can join us both in the Aussie Aviatrix Quilt-a-long!  In the meantime, happy crafting.

{THE FINE PRINT – Please note, this is a WIP linky. Please only link up posts from the past week about a creative work in progress. For finished projects and tutorials, why not head over to the And Sew We Craft linky party? Link backs are appreciated but not required.}
