Latest finish…..

A few years ago I thought I would make a Bookshelf quilt for Sara and her husband Lee.

I printed some family photos onto fabric, I gathered up some ribbons and braids to add to the fabrics to look like book bindings.

Started to cut fabrics for the books, the backing of the shelves and the bookcase itself.

I got a couple of shelves complete and that was it, other things got in the way until this year.

Now it’s complete and gifted, they loved it!!

The grey at the bottom represents the carpet and the cream the walls of the room.

I just can’t believe how real it looks!

Enjoy the photos….

More workshops. Kaleidoscope and Jelly Roll Rug.

In August we had a kaleidoscope Quilt workshop held at Gunnedah Fashion Fabrics.

With one fabric and a small amount of contrast, cut carefully and the magic begins. We had 3 colour waves, yet each quilt looked totally different.

This is the original black fabric.

In September I travelled to Kiama for a Jelly Roll Rug workshop.

It was a great day, lots of colour. Well done ladies.

New Pattern: Chloe

This beautiful quilt was originally designed as a mystery marathon quilt. It uses a main feature fabric, which could be a novelty print, a big floral pattern or something similar. This makes it a perfect project for a fabric that might be a little different to what you would usually use when you patchwork. Go crazy and use a fabric that inspires you! And then choose fabrics to go along with it, to make this gorgeous quilt.

Chloe is now available for download on Craftsy, or for a limited time as a paper pattern in our online store (and it’s currently half price there!)

New Pattern: Easy Peasey Quilt

Easy Peasey really is an easy quilt to make, and it looks fantastic. It uses 16 fat ¼s and 80cm of fabric for the first border and binding. Each block uses just two fabrics, but due to the way that the blocks are cut each quilt made from this pattern will be unique.

The finished quilt is approximately 167.5cm x 167.5cm (67” x 67”), while each block measures approximately 12 ½”.

Easy Peasey is available as a digital download or for a short period as a physical pattern   in our half price pattern clearance.
