The 2017 That Patchwork Place Quilt Calendar is out and my Twinkle Twinkle quilt is July!! I have one to give away. Leave a comment here, or on Instagram, by Sunday evening (Western Australian time) and I will randomly pick a winner!
Edited to add: The winner was the lovely Kris on Instagram.
I made Simplicity 8101 a few months ago for Olive and it is on high rotation so I thought I should make a few more. I used some beautiful Dear Stella fabric for this one and a scrap of some Moda fabric for the pocket.
This Hello Kitty fabric was an excellent find on the bargain rack at Spotlight. The pocket is some new Cotton and Steel fabric.
I made my own bias binding for the pocket and neckline, so much nicer to use than the bought stuff. Once you have made one of these they are very quick and easy to do. I'm sure there will be more.
I've always wanted to make a clam shell quilt, but knew I would never finish one that involved small shapes and hand sewing, so when Latifah Saafir came out with her clever Clammy ruler I knew I needed it. I used the 8" sized ruler and her free Glam Clam pattern.
I enjoyed every moment of making this quilt top. The ruler was very easy to use and the cutting did not take long.
The curves are quite gentle and not hard to sew.
I didn't rush the process and only managed a row most days.
I love it. I bought the 12" ruler as well and can't wait to experiment with some of the different shapes you can make with them.
This block combines two of my favourite things - scrappy backgrounds and jelly rolls. It is the Postage Plus quilt from the April 2016 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting. The pattern calls for squares half the size, but it is very easy to size up.
The Noodlehead Road Trip case has been on my list to make for ages and I finally got around to it this week. I am thinking about starting a big English Paper Piecing project and I think this will be perfect to keep everything in and to cart around with me
I used some new Kokka fabric I bought at Quilt Market for the outside and various scraps for the inside. I loved everything about making this project, except the vinyl, it stuck and stretched out despite using using a teflon foot, but it is done now and I know this bag will get a lot of use.
Our little town is so lucky to have a shop full of wonderful hand made things. They have just moved down the road and the new shop is amazing. If you are near Bridgetown, you definitely need to stop and have a look!
