Blogger's Quilt Festival - Spring 2010

Thanks Amy for Hosting The Blogger's Quilt Festival

This is one of the First Quilts I made.
It may look familiar to all who read my Blog as it's the first thing you see when logging on.

I had always loved the movement of Bargello Quilts, and I wanted to do one in Bright Kaffee Fassett Fabrics.

It took 20 Jelly Roll strips and once I got my head around sewing them into tubes ,the Quilt was simple to put together.

I Quilted it with an E2E Pattern that has Flowers and Butterflys on it.
This Quilt taught me not to be daunted by anything and to just Give It a go.

Shameless!

Shameless I know, It's so mean but I had to share my Neptune with you,now that I finally have a good stash.

This is my Favorite Tula Pink Fabric,and I actually let out a squeal of delight when I found these on a Website at Half Price!!!!!!!!
I had been chasing the Honeybuns for a while, the rest was a Quilt Kit that had 2 Layer Cakes, Borders, Binding and Backing fabric,What a Deal
The Honeybuns and Fat Quarters are going into Cinderberry Stitches Tail Feathers Quilt.

I have finished the binding on my Verna Quilt, I have quilted it it a large Floral Pattern that's E2E


This Quilt is mine to snuggle with!

Scooby my dog had to wait till the photo was taken today before she could sit on my lap, she manages to snuggle with all of my Personal Quilts,Actually she thinks they are all hers!

Super Quick Quilt

Kate Dixon of One Flew Over designed this quilt for Fat Quarterly Emagazine.
I have Quilted it with Pink Thread in Large swirls.
This is a very Quick and Easy Quilt to put together, easily done in a day!
Everyone loves Quilts like that.

I never have unmatched colours on the backs of my quilts, so my decision to put a Teal backing was so out of the ordinary but it actually works.

This Fabric was bought a few years back,but I have never found fabric to match and I didn't want to cut it up so I added Plain Teal and used for this backing.


I will be putting Dark Purple as the binding,which I still haven't purchased so it give me a good excuse to go shopping!

Bring It On!

I Love Verna!!!!!

Last week I decided to cut up my Verna Layer Cake (Ouch!)
When I found Moose on the Porch's Pattern on Moda Bakeshop I knew that I wanted to make that particular Quilt, so after patting the Layer Cake for long enough I finally made the cut!

Konda's quilt was a massive 82" so I removed one row down and one row across.
With doing this it is still a respectable 69" which is perfect to snuggle up with now that Winter is setting in here in OZ!
I have loaded it onto the Gammill and I'm doing a Large Floral E2E design, I'm half way through Quilting and will share more Photos when Finished.

I have also recieved my Fantastic Quilt Labels.

They were made by Anna of Lilla Lotta on Etsy
When I discovered Anna on ESTY I found her to be Very Obilging with all of my requests.
(I think I was a pain in the bum actually!)
Check out her site as she has preprinted tape ready to purchase or like me you can request a certain design, I uploaded one of my Business flyers and Anna was able to work with that!
I have been working on a few other projects and I will share these soon,

Back from The Quilt Show

Well I had a Blast at the Quilt show!
My booty of goodies was small but it is Glorious, Look at that awesome fabric I found.
The Pattern is from Emma Jansen of Ballarat Patchwork

The Quilts were all the "covergirls" from Previous Quilter's Companion Magazines so it was good to relive the Quilts that inspired me to start Quilting.
Here are a couple of Quilts that I liked.
