Kona club

I joined the Australian Kona Club with Handmade by emily Kona Fabric Club. Quilt fabric is very expensive in Australia and after living in the states for 3 years, I find it hard to pay Australian prices. This club is very reasonable so I joined and guess what. I even got a bonus bit of fabric. The green is not part of the club and is a little extra Emily added. It was a lovely surprise.

Heading South

I really want to make a lot of flying geese quilts. I decided to start small with this one from Material Girls. It is meant to use scraps from a gorgeous quilt in Love Patchwork and Quilting . I don't have the magazine so I just made the runner.

I need to stop watching TV when I sew

I love the Hazel Hedgehog pattern by oh fransson and decided I need to make a cushion. I cant believe how much I messed it up. I am thinking maybe a wombat on a bad hair day. The pattern is extremely well written and easy to follow, I was amazed that I managed to mess it up. I decided I liked my wombat???? so I left him as is.

Mini Charm Mix

I made this table runner using the mini charm mix pattern at the fat quarter shop. I love how it turned out and want to make a quilt with the pattern.

I made a few gifts for a friend in Perth. She likes reds and oranges and aboriginal fabrics so I made another across the sea runner by fairy face designs and a waffle time topper by Atkinsons Designs. I also made a mini maple leaf quilt because I love this so much.

a finish

I finally finished this quilt. The pattern is there's a square in there by Kate Conklin. I have made a couple of things with this pattern and I love it. I backed this in flannel with no batting so it is a great light weight quilt.
