2 new projects

What do you do when you are busy at work with little time to sew. Start new projects of course! The top photo is a tutorial for a bear paw block made easy from Missouri star quilt co. I am planning to do 4 blocks with Kate Spain and navy to make a table topper for a friend. There are so many half square triangle quilts I want to make, so I made a charm packs worth. No idea what setting I will use.

Last blocks

I have finished my vice versa BOM blocks. Now I need to decide if I will do the setting given or an easier simple one with sashing.

Birthday cushion

I saw this fabric at spotlight and had to make my daughter a cushion for her birthday ( I made it in December but forgot to blog about it. She loves dream catchers. I put an enclosed zipper in the back using this tutorial from s.o.t.a.k handmade.

And now for something completely different

I made a valentines mini quilt. I don't usually do any valentines day things. I also used pinks and oranges. NOT my usual colours. And I love it. I told my husband I made it for him but it is to go on my sewing room wall. We are racing 18kms in an outrigger canoe on Valentines day. How romantic. We are not even in the same boat! The tutorial is by Ivete from Gotham Quilts. I found it through Amy Friends, During Quiet time blog. Here is the link to the blog post with the link! Note to self- solid is prima homespun, Thistle from spotlight.

A run of runners

Once again I seem to be making table runners. One is the jolly jabbers Mini charm mix pattern using Kate Spain and navy Kona. The other is another cross block runner from the across the sea quilt along. This one is for a friend who likes the red Australian fabrics.

A short trip to Perth

I went to Perth by myself for a week to catch up with family and friends. It was great. I decided that I had to take some cushions for my mum! I kept the scraps from her quilt so I used them. I did a simple envelope enclosure as I made them just before I left.
