raspberryrainbow Here are 280 5inch luscious fabric squares: I'm giddy with excitement to be starting a new quilt. Now let's hope the excitement lasts long enough for me to finish this quilt. 2h

raspberryrainbow Speed boat symmetry, I was supposed to be running, not taking photos. 5d
  •   minimayhem Completely worth stopping for this shot. Gorgeous! 5d
  •   farahlin_ 5d
  •   raspberryrainbow Hehehehe that made me giggle Emily @ejorpin. So you stop and give doggies some money for their piggy banks? . Could use a Laisee packet (but Aussie notes are too much $) I had to stop running as I may have taste tested too many Anzac biscuits this afternoon and had a tummy ache. Whoops 5d
  •   raspberryrainbow Thanks Tanya @minimayhem, I thought so too 5d
  •   raspberryrainbow Thanks @farahlin_. Taking photos is more fun than running anyways! 5d
  •   doabit Lol! I would take photos over running any day! Great shot! :) 5d
  •   raspberryrainbow Yes @doabit, me too. I'm often stopping on my run to take photos! And thanks 5d
  •   baamekniits Great photo! I always stop too 5d

raspberryrainbow I'm out and about in HK today, having fun exploring. I found out that there is Daiso here, the shop has a different name, so very dangerous 6d
  •   raspberryrainbow It was an Aeon shop. Most products had Daiso on the packaging @aussieellen 6d
  •   georgiamars Daiso is awesome! It's my go to place in SG. Love their felt, embroidery thread, and little pots to put my crocheted cacti in. 6d
  •   domestic_smurf We have it in Brisbane but apparently not as good as in Asian countries... I still love ! 5d
  •   raspberryrainbow It's changing rapidly @mandasustarr, I've noticed changes in just 4 years. And not good changes 5d
  •   raspberryrainbow It's still a fabulous city though @mandasustarr 5d
  •   raspberryrainbow It is a dangerous shop @georgiamars! I'm glad there is not one close to where we live. 5d
  •   raspberryrainbow The one I've been into in melbs was great, lots of things to help you live in a small space and get organised @domestic_smurf. I didn't think this one was better. It was just different. 5d
  •   mandasustarr Sadly I think that's the same everywhere Kat, even in south Devon. Still lots to love though 3d

raspberryrainbow We experienced more CNY celebrations today, watching the lion dance and then this lion blessed our apartment block. The lion eats the greenery (hanging up with a Laisee packet) then eats it and spits the out the greenery as a blessing for a great year ahead. Our receptionist picked up the spring onion pieces and gave them to the children watching (including our daughters), this means they will be clever. I love HK at this time of year. 2w

raspberryrainbow I'm not getting much sewing time with my girls on school holidays but I did get this block made over the last few days. I'm missing sewing but loving spending time with my girls. #raspberryrainbowsteampunk #steampunkquilt #steampunkquiltalong 2w

raspberryrainbow Such a pretty mess. My girls have CNY (Chinese New Year) school holidays. I'm stealing moments to sew and create when ever I can in between Mumma duties. 3w

raspberryrainbow I was so unsure of this block all week. Now it is all sewn together I can't figure out why I doubted myself. It's beautiful (if I do say so myself). Steam Punk block number 2. #raspberryrainbowsteampunk 3w
  •   hathaleighcottage Looks fabulous 3w
  •   farahlin_ Great combo! Love this one! 3w
  •   raspberryrainbow Thanks Farah @farahlin_. I adore this one. 2w
  •   sayraphim You could make a fab pizza slice block from it too! Seriously, I am in awe of your mad curve quilting skills, the hexies I did in that photo was because my circles were terrible - flat edges and fraying where I snipped them. One day I need to learn the curve secret! 1w
  •   raspberryrainbow These steam punk blocks are fiddly, but very satisfying to make. I'm self taught, I found using lots of pins helped with the curves, like every 4-8mm. Sew very slow and try to straighten the fabric out a little. No idea if it's the correct way, but it works for me. These blocks would make a great pizza slice block! @sayraphim 1w
  •   sayraphim @raspberryrainbow I shall have to try that next! My quilts are currently handsewn, but I'm really interested to learn how to machine sew them, I'm sure itd make them go faster! I've spent about 2 weeks handsewing my latest, a graffiti tag for my next exhibition - Craffiti, handcrafting the street art in Melb, and gods would it have been faster if I'd had the knowledge to machine sew the thing! 1w
  •   raspberryrainbow I have an IG friend hand sewing these blocks. The other trick is to mark the middle of the two pieces you are sewing together, mark with a simple finger fold. Match the centers, and pin outwards both left and right. That helps me heaps. Mine are still very wonky (the finished blocks are supposed to be square. Mine aren't! , cropping makes them look like they are). I have a hexie hand sewing project I've been working on for almost 3 years, I love having a slow project that can be taken anywhere. Your project sounds great @sayraphim 7d
