Honey Pot Quilt

Six months ago I got a little nudge in the right direction, and this month my very first published quilt hit the stands. My quilt is called Honey Pot, and features the Sweet as Honey fabric by Bonnie Christine for Art Gallery Fabrics.

The magazine is the December issue of Down Under Quilts, and it's available in newsagents now.

Kaleidescope Quilt

Finally finished all the blocks and got the top sewn together last night. Lots of seams to match on this one, but isn't too bad if you press your seams right.

Just need to whip on some borders and it will be ready for quilting. Hopefully we get yardage soon so I can finish it!

Happy Home by Sew Caroline for Art Gallery Fabrics

This lovely fabric arrived from Art Gallery recently and I still can't get enough of it.

There are some funky prints including a gorgeous text print. All available by the metre or in fat quarter and half-metre bundles. You can see more here.

Kaleidoscope Quilt

With a full time job, my sewing time seems to be getting less and less. And with the warmer weather finally approaching I don't see it getting any better. But I did finally manage to start a new project!

I've been blissfully eyeing off a Gooseberry Jelly roll, from the lovely Lella Boutique.

And who could go past her gorgeous Kaleidoscope pattern? I found a little time over the weekend (apart from a tonne of spring cleaning) to whip up the first few blocks. They are super easy! No crazy points to line up at all.


I can already tell I'm going to love this quilt.

Churn Dash Baby Quilt

Sometimes you just need a quilt in a hurry, and last weekend was one of those. One of my friends recently had a baby and I desperately wanted a quilt to gift her when we visited. Then I remembered the single-block churn dash quilt in the Thimble Blossom's book Simply Retro. Perfect! 
Made with two Daysail prints and a little Hello Darling Binding

And some Prints Charming on the back.
She loved it.

Starstruck by Daysail

After a hiccup I've finally finished my Starstruck quilt. Just need time to quilt it.

I'm loving those red borders.

Starstruck Quilt

I know my blog is a little neglected these days. I sarted a full time job recently and it means my sewing and blogging time is greatly reduced. But there have been a few things happening in what little spare time I have.

My newest project is Starstruck, a pattern from Lella Boutique. I've chosen to use Bonnie and Camille's Daysail.

The snowball blocks have gone together quickly and easily. I wasn't sure about the teal but I love how they turned out.

And I'm making good progress on the stars, squeezing a few in when I get a minute or ten.

This quilt should come together in no time.

Maker from Art Gallery Fabrics

I've been working recently to stock the shop with a few more low volume fabric options, and Maker from Art Gallery is just perfect. Featuring pins, scissors and other craft-related motifs. 

We've also got a great telegram print from Art Gallery.

All our low volume prints can be found here.

I've been very impatiently waiting the arrival of Rain or Shine and it is finally here. I love it! There are cute umbrellas, rain drops, clouds and even the sun.

We're offering it by the metre and in fat quarter and half-metre bundles. You can purchase it here.

Vintage Modern Fat Quarter Bundles by Bonnie and Camille

I've managed to scrounge up some lovely Vintage Modern by Bonnie and Camille and have a number of fat quarter bundles available.

Six fat quarters is $40, 12 for $80. I have only two more full sets of 12 with no duplicates, after that any set of 12 will have one repeated fabric. Please go here to purchases.

Working on a Little Something

With more free time than I'm used to, I'm making the most of it and playing around with a few pattern ideas at the moment. I'd been wanting to make a "plus quilt" for ages and with a pretty bundle of Kate Spain's Sunnyside staring me in the face, it was time.

Both myself and one of my Instagram followers have been testing the pattern and it's looking good. Hopefully not long until the PDF will be available in my shop.
