Vice Versa BOM

Finally I have started my vice versa BOM. 8 months late but still better late than never!! I am using 15 different fat quarters instead of 5 colours. I am using the Kona sunset bundle I love so I think it will work.
This is Januarys blocks.

Aurifil BOM

Yay!! I got some sewing done. I have been working full time and have had the flu that has been going around so it has not been a good few weeks. I got this block done just before the end of the month but has taken me a few days to post it. I love how the blocks are turning out.

Just Because

One of my good friends in America, Miss Nancy sent me these lovelies in the mail. We call her Miss Nancy because there were 2 Nancys in the sewing group I was in. Nancy, Miss Nancy and 1 clicked and used to meet at each other houses to sew. Now we have all moved from St Louis so no more sewing together but Miss Nancy and I keep in touch. She has been to Australia a few times because one of her sons lives here. Anyway Nancy sent me a just because present recently and I love it. I love the zipper bag and I love that she made the felt accessories for me. I feel very spoilt.

My parents have built and moved into a brand new house after living in the same house their entire married life until now. I am flying to Perth tomorrow and will finally see it. I really want to make things for the house but decided to not do too much until I see it. Mum told me she bought yellow bar stools so when I saw this fabric at the Sydney quilt show I knew I had to get it. I made these 2 place mats to take with me. I just used the fabric as it is perfect. I have nearly a metre of it so I can make some more things later.
I used black and white fat quarters I had for the back.

Modern Maples

I finally finished my falling Maples runner made using the tutorial on Larks Crafts. Simple straight line quilting because everything else I tried didn't work.

Another Mini for me

I loved this mini by Jeni Baker and I love Kate Spain so I decided to use her fabric to make a similar one for ME. I had a jelly roll which I have been saving but I have decided I am going to use it to make lots of fun projects. I modified this pattern so I could use a jelly roll. It finishes at 12 inches. Kate Spains new line Horizon is out in September and it looks fantastic so I am going to sew as much as possible before then so I can justify buying it. Sound like a plan!

Sydney Quilt Show

I went to the Sydney Quilt show on Wednesday. It was a good show although smaller than usual. I didn't buy a lot as I have so many things planned with the things I have.
I bought some aida so I can finally start the quilty stitches sampler along at Little Miss Shabbys blog.
Couldn't reist this emu cross stitch even though I have a million to do.
Had to buy fabric.
Another mini I must make.
