Pavement Puddles Take Two

A couple of years ago, I had my first magazine quilt finish – Pavement Puddles. It was featured on the cover of the first ever Make Modern Magazine, and I was thrilled!  Since then, you guys have purchased the pattern yourself, but it’s taken me this long to get another version made myself! I actually finished the quilt top this time last year, but just never got around the finishing it – until today!  Isn’t it beautiful?  It is so very different from … Continue Reading »

#aussieaurifilclub – November’s Neutral Territory

This month’s #aussieaurifilclub is a little delayed!  But it’s a good delay, because our Aussie distributor has been sold and handed over to its new owners – none other than Amitie Textiles!  So Jen and her crew are working hard to get everything running smoothly again, and will be bringing in loads more stock – including the much anticipated 80wt thread!  Watch this space! But for now, let me introduce you to “Neutral Territory”.  This foursome of softness is perfect for all sewing … Continue Reading »

Leftovers – Sewing For Sale

What do you do when you have time off work and a WIP list a mile long??  You start something new yes?  Several something’s new??  Mmhmmmm……  To make this story sound better, I will say that the following THREE new projects stemmed from leftovers of projects gone….. Firstly, I found the leftovers from blocks of a quilt that is yet to be finished.  In fact, it was supposed to be a Christmas present last year.  I’m hoping to get that done for this … Continue Reading »

Flowering Snowball in Blue

Back in May of this year, I did a bit of fabric shopping whilst tripping through Tasmania.  On said fabric shopping, I found the most glorious bundle of blue prints at Patchwork Plus.  The collection  is called “Alchemy” by Camelot Fabrics.  That little bundle has been patiently awaiting my attention, and thankfully I packed it when I went up for a day with my Modern Makers friends.  I whipped that bundle through the fabulous Go! cutter, and was then fully prepared to make … Continue Reading »

Pocket Full Of Rainbow

There is literally nothing more satisfying than a quilt that comes together super quick!  For this beauty, I dug out two gorgeous charm packs from V and Co – Simply Style and Simply Color.  Once I had a rough idea of my rainbow, I added about a dozen of my own fabrics from my stash, surrounded it in a sea of white, and DONE! I’m a tad obsessed by rainbows at present, and think they are the perfect colour combination to brighten anyone’s … Continue Reading »

Prince – The Purple Reign Finale

He’s finished! And has had to make do with photographs hanging on the back fence of my neighbours house.  Hereby framed by an electrical post and paperbark tree – and of course, a hills hoist clothesline behind the fence!  But he’s beautiful…. I always find it hard to choose a favourite quilt, but this one is a major contender from here on in.  I was lucky enough to acquaint myself with the gorgeous Carolyn from Free Bird Quilting Designs, and with a very … Continue Reading »

(Not) Just Another Boy Quilt

A few months ago, I listed a bunch of my quilts for sale on my personal Facebook page.  I honestly did not think anyone would buy them, but wanted to give friends and family first option before I put them out to the public!  Much to my surprise, I sold a few!  Two of them found a new home together, for two gorgeous little sisters.  But there was just one problem – they have a brother!  But I had no boyish quilts….. So … Continue Reading »

A Lizzy House Charmer

I have a confession to make – last month, I decided it was time for another charm swap, but I was incredibly time and effort poor, so I didn’t advertise it widely.   In fact, I only threw it open to members of my charm swap FB group.  Sometimes, you just gotta do what you gotta do – and this was the easiest and most time efficient way for me to go.  So – with that – I’ll apologise to those of you … Continue Reading »
