WIP it Wednesday

I love half square triangle quilts and have finally started one. I am using a free pattern at Kaufman fabrics. It is the out of step pattern. I changed the measurements so I could use a charm pack. I am using the kona sunset charm pack. I couldn't resist this Charley Harper cross stitch. Linking to WIP Wednesday at freshly pieced

Mini Churn dash

Churn dash quilts are my favourite at the moment and I always love minis so I decided to make a churn dash mini. I copied one I have had pinned for a while. It is by Megan at quilt story. I used Australian fabrics but don't have enough for the binding. I am going to a quilt show in Sydney this month so hopefully I can get some or I will have to buy it in Perth at Quiltessential Quilt shop which is near my parents house. I always buy some Australian fabric when I go to Perth. On Saturday morning we paddled around an island and saw some seals! It was amazing. We stopped and they were very curious and came over and checked us out.It is the first time I have seen seals around here. It is whale watching time for the next few months so we really hope to see some whales one day.

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.
