Birthday finish

It’s my little girl’s birthday later this week so I finished binding her quilt ready to give it to her. 

I used Maureen Cracknell’s pattern but adapted it to make it jelly roll friendly. 

Seemaryquilt did a wonderful job graffiti quilting it.   

I’m so excited about this quilt finish. I know my little one is going to love it.

A Friday Finish

This week I’ve been working on a little wall hanging using Alison Glass’s Ex Libris collection. I have used this fabric so much recently, it’s just beautiful.

Luxe in Bloom

I managed to finish my Luxe in Bloom quilt this week and the sun was shining so I took it for a walk with the dog to try and get some pretty photos.

All of the fabrics are from Art Gallery Fabrics and the pattern is one of their free designs. I love this fabric line. The grey and navy are lovely together.

I backed the quilt with my favourite navy fabric. I just love the little lime green geckos. 

Jasper wasn’t interested in photographing quilts.

My first swap

I recently signed up for the pillow talk swap on Instagram. It’s my first ever swap and I’m really excited. My partner likes rainbow colours so I cut into my Alison Glass Ex Libris fabric.

I auditioned a few background colours. I liked these lime greens.   

But I decided this coral fabric would be really pretty.

I added some flowers and butterflies.

WIP Wednesday

This week I’ve been working on some cushion covers. Ages ago a friend mentioned she’d like some green, geometric, 1950s inspired cushions for her couch.  

So I got out my Hex n More ruler for a bit of geometry, some left over jelly roll strips in varying shades of green and some Tula Pink ‘The Birds and Bees’.

I added in some Alison Glass fabric as well.  
 I don’t want to trim the points. Should I add interfacing to give some rigidity. Anyone have any tips?

Sunday Stash

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to win a bundle of Lotta Jansdotters fabric Stella from windham over on Silly Mama Quilts. Brooke designed the beautiful Stars for Stella quilt using the fabric.  

The fabric has a lovely soft palette that I think lends itself to a baby quilt or items for a nursery.  

 The pretty butterflies and elephants are complimented by stars and vines.
