I'm In Print

This is the latest edition of Australian Patchwork & Quilting - my quilt is in here - I won the third prize for the Australian Machine Quilters Association - Pieced Star Quilt Challenge earlier this year.....It looks good - well I think so anyways. It is the last one on the page - I had such fun quilting this one - but was under time pressure because I decided late to enter the challenge - glad I did now.

New Quilts & stuff

This is a lovely little quilt I made with my "cat" themed fabric - got the pattern of Bonnie's "Quiltville" ...http://quiltville.com/ - she has some fantastic quick and easy patterns for stashbusting.

I am going to quilt this with a "Cat's Paw" all over pattern.

This is another quilt I made up with a "Jelly Roll" and " Charm Square" pack - I call it "Chocolate Strawberry" but I'm not sure of the fabric range name. My niece loves it and I'm sure would love to take it home when I have quilted it. Going to put funky feathers on this one.

I made this lovely little pin cushion - different colours for each side - one inch strips sewn into a log cabin block.

And these are the items I made with a Japanese theme at a weekend sewing retreat - it is so nice to go away with likeminded people and sew and leave all your everyday problems at home - it has been such a long time since I have been able to do this. But boy, was I tired by the time I got home.
