AMH Charm Along – Toxic

I’ve finally had the chance to take some photos of my beautiful finished AMH Charm Along Quilt – which I have named “Toxic”. This beauty came about when I pulled out my pencil and graph paper.  I wanted to do something special with these charms, and I had this most amazing cobalt blue solid to pair with them.  Turns out I like working with triangles! In my drawing, it was a bunch of triangles within triangles, and laid out to form a giant … Continue Reading »

Hazel My Hedgehog

When Angie from Gnome Angel asked if I would be interested in joining her Hazel the Hedgehog QAL, I took about one nanosecond to answer – a resounding YES PLEASE!  I bought the pattern from Oh Fransson! last year, but just never had the inclination to get it made!  So this was the perfect time to do it…… I chose the divine Tula Pink’s “Moonshine” range, which has an amazing colour palette.  I divided the range up, and went with the reds, oranges and … Continue Reading »

Luminous – A Pattern Test

In this crafty world we live in, we quite often have the opportunity to meet like-minded people.  Last year, I had the pleasure of meeting one such lady – Abby, from Things For Boys!  Last week, Abby put the call out for patterns testers.  She has designed a fabulous pattern called “Luminous”, and I quite happily offered my assistance!  Yesterday, I got to choosing fabrics for the rainbow version, and whilst it was a little tricky finding colours that would work to give … Continue Reading »

Sew Cute Tuesday – Back To My Regular Schedule

As I gently re-enter my regular routine, I’ve returned to gift sewing.  You see, I worked my proverbial butt off over January, doing what we call “sleepover shifts” during the school holidays, so I could be home with the kids.  Once the kids headed back to school, I had a glorious ten days off work to get this house, and my sewing, back in to order!  So today, I’m sharing a few goodies I managed to get sorted….. A few weeks ago, I … Continue Reading »

Star Crossed – Waterfront Park

If you’ve been around these parts a while, you may remember I fell madly in love with Violetcraft’s Waterfront Park last year?  I ordered my bundle, received it, and swiftly turned it in to a quilt top…….. I even got halfway through making the quilt back.  But for some reason (known to me – the quilt top was a tad wonky) it languished in my WIP pile for far too long. Fast forward to this week. And she is complete!  I am still … Continue Reading »

Christmas Sewing – It’s a Wrap!

As with every other household in the world, things here have been crazy!!  We’ve had my 16 year old God-daughter staying with us for three weeks – which meant I had five kids to sort out, children finishing school, organising school for next year.  Christmas parties, birthday parties and work work work.  I’m also struggling dreadfully with a horrid virus called “pityriasis rosea” – otherwise known as “the rash from hell”. In between all of that and more, I’ve managed to get a … Continue Reading »

T.G.I.F.F. – 2014 Quilt Finale

2014 has been a big year for me – quilting and otherwise.  As the year closes, I have my last two quilt finishes to share with you!  I count myself very lucky to be chosen to make something, as special as a quilt, for others.  The fact that people put their faith in me is really lovely.  Both of the quilts I’m sharing today are for repeat customers.  So I guess that says something about my product! You may remember my Isosceles on … Continue Reading »

Project Pictorial

Every now and then, I look through my downloaded photos to both Instagram and here on my computer, and I find finished projects I haven’t shared with you!  So here is a little “project pictorial”….. My Christmas ornament for the Melbourne Modern Quilt Guild swap!  I cracked open my Liberty stash for this one, and love how it turned out.  We swapped on Saturday at our Sit and Sew day, and thankfully my recipient said she loved it! I have had a few … Continue Reading »

Confetti Cannon

When the MQG sent out an email a few months ago, regarding the Quiltcon Michael Miller challenge, I very quickly signed up thinking “this will be fun!”  I received my little bundle of pastel cotton couture weeks later and thought “Ummmmmm”.  I had no idea how to make the pastels work.  I mean, I’ve only ever used pastels a few times in my quilting life, so was left a bit deflated.  I took them out again not long after and just stared at … Continue Reading »
