Quilting conundrum

I stopped off at my local patchwork store today and grabbed myself some luscious fabric. I grabbed four fabrics from the Mint Collection Down Under collection. I’ve had my eye on these pieces for a while now. I am having a bit of an obsession with grays and there was something about this collection that […]

Kitchen window quilt

Finally I have managed to spend a crapload of time working on some of my quilting projects that I’ve had on the go for a while now. I admit that I pretty much put everything else on the backburner to get this quilt finished, but I just couldn’t stand seeing it lying around any longer. […]

Queensland quilt

Wow this has been a super busy week. I would love to say that I’ve been relaxing in front of the TV or reading a good book or just casually making progress on my Rain or Shine quilt, but none of that is the truth. I came home from work last Thursday night having just […]

This That quilt

Well I have officially named the quilt that I am working on now. Introducing the DisDat quilt – because it’s a little bit of This and a little bit of That. I’m still working on getting all the block patterns drawn up – I’ve been quite slack lately, just chilling and trying to get back […]

It’s new quilt project time

So a while back I stopped over at Mid Mod Quilt Bee and came across this post which gave me some inspiration to start a new quilt. I fell in love with the simplicity of it and really wanted to try something similar. While I love the colours that are on the drawing, they weren’t […]

Tomahawk’s quilt

(Image heavy post to follow) Back in March my little baby sister called me to tell me that she was expecting her first child. I cannot tell you how excited I was. I haven’t had a baby niece or nephew for 17 years now, so another baby in the family is a fantastic thing. Straight […]
