Catch up on Aussie Hero's Sewing

So in the past month and a half I have been also doing some sewing for the Aussie Hero's

Here are a few that have been sewn and sent and also some that are works in progress
This one is Aboriginal print themed and has some lovely pebbling FMQ in each of the orange squares ... you might have to zoom in to see.

This is the laundry bag that accompanied it.

This is an Aussie themed quilt that I did some FMQ that looks like waves around the Australian
Shape in the middle ... zoom in again to have a close look.

 This is the laundry bag that went with the Aussie one.

Next are two quilt tops I completed and have been sent to Jan-Maree to have a quilter finish them off.  The pinwheel one had some BOM's that others had sent in.

The next two have recipients but are being finished at the moment. 

I'm calling this one Flora and Fauna as there is lots of Aussie Fabric in this one.. all around the edge is a nice wattle fabric

This one is Kookaburra Tea towel.... one of the teatowels that was donated to Aussie Heros.

This last one is a photo from my design wall.  It also has a donated teatowel in the middle and is an Anzac Biscuit recipe on it.... so all the fabric is food related... Maroons, Cupcakes, Coffee, Corn, Peas & Apples... I love it and I think we need to find a chef/cook to send this one too.

Thats all from me tonight... don't forget if you want to get involved in  Aussie Hero's Quilts just visit the blog or like them on facebook

Lastly I celebrated my birthday yesterday and here is a little shot of my flowers and cake I got in the morning  AHHHH

Til next time

A Quilt for Someone Special

This post is to show you a quilt I have been working on for about a week or two. 
So 2 things I love about this quilt. 

1.  I love the Vintage Modern Fabric Range
2.  I'm giving it to someone who is very special to me..... It's a secret ATM

I made up the layout myself.  I used a charm pack of Vintage Modern, a charm pack of Bella Solids White, a couple of mini charm pack of Vintage Modern and the border was done in one of the fabrics from the range.

The lovely Carolynne did a wonderful job quilting it for me in a lovely panto.... can't think of the name right now .... will update

 As I previously mentioned I am doing the Fat Quarter Shop's 2012 Designer Mystery BOM
 I have completed Block 1 see below... sorry picture is a bit blurry....

I have purchased alot more... and I mean alot more of this collection cause I love it...  Watch this space..

Just before I go here is a quick piccy of Hunni... on her human cushion.... AHHH to be the queen of the house and have all the humans at my beck and call LOL

Happy Sewing

Bags Bags and More Bags


I've been absent for a while again... too much to do.

Here is a quick post about some bags I have been making over the last month..

I have been loving "Under the Australian Sun Fabric" you can see the theme in these bags.  Oh also I've had enough of bags for a while... they can be a bit fiddly.

The first one is a little sewing bag.  Here is a shot of the front and the back.

The next one is a little Hand Sewing Organiser.. It has some nice little compartments and a pin cushion in the centre.

The last one is a nice big tote for carrying everything to class. Still needs a little hand stitching on this one.

Ok thats all for now will update on some other things I have been doing soon.

Aussie Heros - Lots of new quilts
Vintage Modern - love this fabric, have completed a special quilt for someone, also doing the Fat quarters Block of the month.  Also bought some more fabric can't get enough
Oh my Stars quilt - being quilted at the moment photo's to come.
