Geometric II

by Kate on April 4, 2012

The fabric for this geometric was cut for this top way back in January, how shameful but the gods aligned yesterday and I finally hauled out the juki. I have used a mix of vintage checks, liberty, linen, cookies and some kei – the result is bold but I think it works for both boys […]


A quilt for Tara

by Kate on January 28, 2012

My brother and his wife, Tara are expecting their first child in July. The kids are out at Mum and Dad’s this weekend so I thought it wise to get cracking on the handmade gift front. We know they are cooking up a little girl so I went with some lovely aqua and peachy pink […]

All hands on deck at Chez One Flew Over. Apart from quilting the capsule quilts…husbando came off his bike and broke both his collar bone and shoulder blade. Needless to say, we have had better weeks.

Pink Windows

by Kate on August 3, 2011

This was the perfect project to get my quilting mojo back – pretty fabrics, small size and quick to finish. I randomly pieced the blocks using fabrics from my scrap bin and for me, there really is nothing more statisfying than sewing with scraps. Given I don’t have a fabric stash, I ducked up to […]


Back to it

by Kate on August 1, 2011

Are there any quilters still reading? You would be forgiven if you have nicked off as there hasn’t been much sewing here of late… I did dust off the machine yesterday as a good mate is expecting a little girl, given they live in Singapore I knew a knitted or hooked gift was out of […]


Mini Mini

by Kate on June 30, 2011

A recipient of the Down Under Doll Quilt Swap is still waiting for her mini quilt which is pretty bloody disappointing when you consider the cut off was the end of May. *sigh* Normally, I would totally understand – life can get in the way but given I have had no response from the maker…well, […]
