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 »

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 »

Tula Grande

It’s taken a little time to get this baby finished, but she was a grande old dame, who deserved some grand treatment!  There was never any doubt that someone else had to quilt her, because her stature was a little more than mine could handle!  So, a week ago, I picked her up and endeavoured to get her finished.  And here she is…….in all her glory…… Isn’t she lovely?  Photographing her proved a little difficult also, but I took the small window of … Continue Reading »

A Hawks Quilt – Aussie Hero Quilts

Most of the time, I keep a to-do list.  2015’s to-do lists quite often had “Aussie Hero Quilt” scrawled in to a week I thought I’d have time.  Unfortunately, I never found that time, and as I rolled in to 2016, I wanted to make this a priority. I’m super happy to say I managed to do so, and a couple of weeks ago I emailed JM at Aussie Hero Quilts, and asked her to send me the request list.  As I looked … Continue Reading »

For Fraser

Exactly two weeks and two days ago, I took a chance and asked my quilty #aussiecharmswap friends if they could help me out.  You see, I needed to make a quilt  with a quick turnaround, and was flying out for a week’s holiday the following day.  So whilst lying awake in bed the night before, I thought it was worth a try…… My best friend’s (Jodie) Dad has been going through a pretty impressive battle with cancer, and he’s given it everything he’s … Continue Reading »

First Finish for 2016 – B&C Charm Quilt

Precisely 14 months ago, I finished a quilt top using the charms squares I had acquired from the Bonnie & Camille #aussiecharmswap.  It was a fabulously fast and furious swap, with devotees to the cause keen to get things moving!  We ended up with 112 gorgeous prints from the designers, and although they are not my usual “cup of tea”, I had fun working with them…. When I did my self-audit last week, it made me reflect on all the quilt tops I … Continue Reading »

2015 – In A Nutshell

A fabulous hashtag took over Instagram this week – #bestnine2015 – which chooses nine photos on your IG account with the most “likes”.  I jumped on the band wagon, and was reminded of some wonderful projects made, and received, this year…. Granted – A few of these projects are not mine!  The delightful pink mini was made for me by Sheila, Chelsea made her own quilt, the #sewingforsydney quilt top and that stunning AMH quilt mid-left is by Laurelle!  But sharing is caring … Continue Reading »

Bag Lady

After my successful start to Christmas sewing, with my first teacher’s gift HERE, I moved right along to the next.  But was a bit stumped on what to make!  I quizzed my friend, and she suggested a satchel.  Of course she did – cos she doesn’t sew! lol.  Anyway, it WAS a great idea, so I scoured the web for a suitable pattern, and then decided on the Swoon Dorian.  If I’m honest, I’ll tell you the photos of the finished products on … Continue Reading »
