Sarah and I worked on this quilt together and it was lots of fun. There are 21 different fabrics featured and fabric selection was made much easier with two of us finding prints that we thought would work. We shared the piecing and binding load between us but Sarah did all the quilting ties, she [...]
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 [...]
The Finders Keepers market was fantastic, such a great mix of stores and it was the perfect place to start my Christmas shopping. I had a great time hanging out with Shaz (which made me miss Melbourne even more) and loved pimping her Aunty Cookie wares. Speaking of wares, I was thrilled that only four [...]

Given my sewing mojo is well and truly back I thought it best to strike whilst the iron is hot. Enter the 90 Degree Quilt. Made up of hot pinks, teal and pops of grey, it is one of the brightest quilts I have made in a while. I could bang on and on about [...]
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 [...]
