Wednesday Quilting Session

Life is just a little crazy right now, but I made sure to put "quilting" on my to-do list for today.

Nothing fancy, just some loopy loops but I'm already pretty happy with how it's looking.

Lola Goes to Market

With the weekend looming, I needed to get Lola Ladybug finished; how else to sell the panels if I haven't made her myself. A little fiddly, but not actually difficult, I finally got her done. She's not perfect (don't look too close), but she's pretty cute!

Tomorrow I'll be at AQM (the wholesale market) checking out all the new and upcoming quilty goodness, then on Sunday I'm at Caulfield Racecourse for Mathilda's/Boutique Market. It's on from 9am till 1pm and I'll be there with as much fabric as I can carry. Details over in my right-hand sidebar.

April Showers by Bonnie and Camille

It's here! April Showers pre-cuts arrived on my doorstep yesterday. Love the colours in this range!

I've got the usual selection of Jelly Rolls, Layer Cakes and Charm Packs available.

Aaaaaand, Just My Type from Michael Miller also arrived; this is a cute selection of typewriter key prints.

Color Me Happy by V and Co.

Not what I expected today, but a little mix-up saw Color Me Happy pre-cuts arrive on my doorstep. I love this range and am so happy that I got it in early (it's not due until 2014).

I've got Charm Packs, Jelly Rolls and Layer Cakes available right here.

Lola Ladybug

Crafting has taken a bit of a back seat this week; with Christmas coming there just doesn't seem to be a minute to spare! There are birthday lunches, dinners with friends, and quick trips interstate (but thats another story). 

I have the first of my Christmas markets coming up next weekend, Mathilda's Market at Caulfield Racecourse, and I'm scrambling to get ready. One of the things I'm currently selling is the Lola Ladybug panel from Melly and Me's range, Snug as a Bug. I've sold quite a few, but I thought I'd better make one myself so I can explain it to my customers better.

Its not difficult but I've been doing a little at a time. The head is assembled, the body has arms and legs, and the wings are ready to attach. I just need to find time to get it all together,

It should look a little like this:

You can find them in my shop here.

Scrap Quilt

When I finished the 2012 BOM quilt, I packed away all the leftover fabric, knowing there was enough to start another quilt, but having already made two Vintage Modern quilts. Then I got an invite to a wedding, and a little light bulb went off inside my head.

So I cut as many 8" squares as possible, adding in a little Happy Go Lucky and Scrumptious and I think even one piece of Bliss, stitched like a maniac, and it was done!

(excuse the ipad photo)

Just need to get this one quilted, and the Star Blossoms quilt, before Christmas. And guess what?! This is my 500th blog post!

Star Blossoms Flimsy

I feel like its taken forever to get here, but I finally have the quilt top together.

Now it just needs to be basted and quilted; I'll get there eventually!
