Helloooo!

Meet Mr Owl...
 Remember when I won this from SewCraftyJess?
 Well I purchased another 3 charm packs this is what I came up with...
A while back I bought Whooo loves you?  A Quilt Pattern by Brenda Riddle, because it had the cutest owl on it.

 This was my first attempt at raw edge applique and I must say that I really enjoyed every moment.

It has inspired me to give Kellie's patterns from Don’t look Now a go!

I have also finished my 2 blocks for Birdie Stitches so I can now say I’m up to date Yay!!!!!
May is definitely my favourite block so far....
Sorry for the Dark Photos, Rainy Day here!
 All it's good for is...
Pathetic I know!

Blogger's Quilt Festival 2011...

Welcome to my entry for the Bloggers Quilt Festival.
I was very unsure of which Quilt to pick , I have a couple which I am very proud of this time!
In the end I had to make a decision so I went with my Single Girl Quilt...
  
When I started this Quilt Along with the Single Girl Support Group
 I was unsure how I would go,
 My track record with finishing Quilt Along's is not so good.

So with this in mind I went will a 4 ring version of the Quilt because I knew that any more would have been asking way too much!

This was the first Quilt that I needed templates for so I was apprehensive to say the least.

 I chose Just Wing It! by MoMo 


Then I set about getting everything in order 


 
Next to pick the background colour ...
My design wall  made making the Quilt so much easier, I don't know if it would have been finished if I had to keep getting up and down off the floor!

I quilted it with a Leaf and Butterfly design...
 Just Wing It!  is all about Butterflies if you haven't seen the Fabric up close.

I was so happy to finish the quilt in the time frame set out.
(never happened before!)

This Quilt has opened me up to choosing more involved patterns,
 instead of A Quilt in a Weekend
  After all it's all about the Quality not the Quantity right?

A big thank you to Amy of Amy's Creative Side 
for hosting such a Great event,
You bring so many talented Quilters together.

It's great, because you find so many Fabulous Blogs
that you would have never known existed before.

Supernova Finished......Yay!!!!!!


My Supernova Quilt is as per instructions on Lee's Blog Freshly Pieced Quilted and bound.


A big thank you to Lee who posted the instructions for
 such a wonderful Quilt for Free,
because if you had packaged it into a pattern
 you would have sold Hundreds!

The instructions were very clear and concise.

If you didn't join in on the Quilt Along, make sure you have a go at this Quilt sometime, It really isn't as daunting as it looks! 

The Centre block...


Love Hope Valley Too...
I have quilted it with an orange peel design.

I am so happy with how this has turned out!
 

 

I am so happy that so far this year I have been able to focus on one Quilt at a time.



Well not quite... I have finished a project that will be published in the next few months and also happily working on an alternative size for everyone. I have pieced it using my Favourite Central Park fabrics so when that’s quilted I will give you a small sneak peek!



It’s so hard not telling you about it, but the wait is nearly over...



I have finished last month’s birdie stitches but it is yet to have borders so when that happens I will post a photo.

Has everyone checked out the latest block? I think it’s the prettiest so far.

Happy Mothers Day! on Sunday to my Wonderful Mum, I love you Lots!ladybugquilting
