Quilter's Vibe October: " When Papa Says..."

Hello Lovelies!

October proved to be challenging for all of us!  At best we're a little late with our QV videos and at worst sitting out this round or somewhere in between.  My firm belief is that crafting should never become a chore, so it is what it is and all scenarios are OK!

I believe this month's inspo is Daisie's choice (links to all the channels at the end of the post) and I thought it was really cute!  i may just have to make an actual quilt like this sometime! 😉

Since last month was a fairly literal interpretation of the quilt block, I didn't want to replicate the whole quilt.  My layout came about from the monsters reminding me of the Sassafras line "Monstrosity" and I spend the first few minutes of the video talking about that.

Here's the link to the video:

One thing I did do this month as well as last month was machine stitching through the grey and black squares.  I love the texture machine stitching provides, but it does mean regular adhesive may not be enough.  Glue Dots are my weapon of choice for this as well as using them to adhere those pesky chipboard Thickers and the odd embellishment.  I will only resort to liquid glue if my life depends on it (and even then it's pretty iffy! 🤣🤷🙈)


As I mentioned in the video, the journalling is below and other hard-to-read bits like the title

 When Papa Says

Thanks so much for having a look and hope you visit the channels of the other girls below whether or not they have a QV this month.  There's plenty of great inspiration regardless!
