Sweet As Honey Quilt

I haven't had a chance to buy batting for my Night Sky quilt yet, so in the meantime I'm working on aproject  that's been floating around in my head for quite some time.

There's this gorgeous bundle of Sweet As Honey that I've been eyeing off, from Art Gallery Fabrics.

They're are big blocks and coming together rather quickly. 

Half way!

Paradiso Baby Quilt

One thing I don't like about flying geese: all the off-cuts! Night Sky has a tonne of thrm, and while most are tiny, there are a decent number of larger triangles. So I did what any sane quilter would do: turn them into HSTs!

Then turned them into a little baby quilt.

Backed with some leftover Ikea fabric.

And quilted with Aurifil (which is now stocked in the shop).

My only dilemma now is how to bind it, when Paradiso hasn't been released yet!

Night Sky in Paradiso

I'm declaring this my first finish of 2015, even though it's not yet quilted. Baby steps! I dashed outside for a few quick photos this morning before the storms rolled in.

There were definitely moments where I was not loving this quilt; so many flying geese! But now that it is all together I'm pretty darn pleased. I do love pink and blue.

Happy New Year

2015 is on us, and I hope you all had a lovely Christmas. I spent a week in the country, and while I'm happy to be home, I'm not so happy that it's going to be 40C today!

Last year was a bit of a quiet one in the quilting front for me, I just couldn't seem to find the time. Hopefully better luck this year!

First off was a wedding quilt for my lovely friend Bec.

Then another wedding quilt, this time for my friend Stacy who loves in San Francisco. I carried this quilt all the way from Melbourne via New York City, Boston and Chicago!

I used leftover Daydream scraps to make this massive Fresh quilt.

Then dug into Miss Kate to make Cherrio.

I also made a little Moda Love with April Showers.

And started, but haven't yet finished, my Night Sky quilt using Paradiso.
