A Quilt in Colour...

I've been waiting for the sun to come out to take these photos
 but by the time I get outside the sun has gone
so after a couple of tries I gave up and relied on my Flash!

The Fabric is A Stitch in Colour by Malka Dubrawsky by Moda.
This is a Quilt made using a stack and slash method.
I used 28 Fat 1/8ths, which I just Ironed stacked and the slash...

Once they were all together I then trimmed them down for a bit of uniformity!
Finished block size: 8 1/2" x 18 1/2"

It is the perfect size for a couch throw,
I'm thinking this is one for the husband not a flower in sight!!!!

Playing with Skittles...

Sorry, I haven’t been blogging lately,
 I have been flat out working on other peoples quilts...

But this morning I decided that today would be all about me!!!
Remember my Fandango Quilt made from the Kate Conklin Pattern off the rails from Last year, Well this is her little sister Skittles...
I have made her out of St Ives by Sarah Fielke for Lecien,
 I was lucky enough to get a Fat Quarter bundle for Christmas (as well as a Woodland Bundle too, but I can’t bring myself to cut that up just yet...)
Super Quick and easy quilt, took 3 hours from thought process to completion. Now I just have to wait for the backing to turn up so I can quilt it.

I have also finished my Come what may quilt...Pattern by Jaybird, made in a variety of Kate Spain Fabrics for Moda. Love this pattern too; have already decided on fabric for my next one...
I quilted in a bright Blue thread a perfect match for the Backing...

My Sew, Laugh, Love Stitchery I got at Urban Stitched last year has been crying out to be started , this is what I have done whilst watching TV lately.

It's a start... Long way to go 
Now I'm off to see what else I can play with...
