Three Personal Finishes.................


I have been a happy quilter as I have managed to finish three of my own quilts! I know exciting right.
A friend reminded me of one quilt I hadn't shared here on my blog, although I have shared on my Instagram and Facebook pages, but I think there are some of you who only follow me here on my blog.






Quilt Information:

Pattern - Atomic Starburst by Violet Craft
Measurements - 72" x 76"
Batting - Wool.
Backing - Tula Pink.
Quilting - Custom Quilting.
Threads - Glide.

This was the perfect quilt design to showcase Tula Pink's All Stars, PomPom's & Stripes fabric ranges. I used a Robert Kaufman white fabric called Animal Kingdom and Kona Solid in the colour Pea Pod.




Quilt Information:

Pattern - Mandolin Quilt - English Paper Piecing paper & pattern from Tales of Cloth
Measurements - 75" x 75"
Batting - Wool
Backing - Pieced from two vintage embroidered tablecloths and other fabrics.
Quilting - E2E Quilting - Soft & Sweet.
Threads - Glide.

I started this quilt in January 2018 as a sew along with Tales of Cloth. I had enormous amounts of fun choosing fabrics. I wanted an eclectic look which I created with the middle hexagon's from vintage linen's (yes I cut them up!) then just played with fabric from my stash.


look closely, what looks like all straight lines, there is a custom quilted block!





Quilt Information:

Pattern - Chic Picnic by Sew Kind of Wonderful.
Measurements - 79" x 79"
Batting - Wool/Polyester.
Backing - Pieced from two Alison Glass panels, two of her other fabrics and some word fabric.
Quilting - Custom Quilting.
Threads - Glide.

Another great pattern to showcase some scrumptious fabrics, this time a good selection of Alison Glass fabrics. Finished off with a flange binding.


For all my New Zealand readers wanting to have some E2E (all over ) Quilting on their quilt tops, this special is running until the end of the month. So it's not too late to pop your quilt tops in the post for some E2E Quilting.

Three personal finishes.......................


Welcome and Happy New Year! I hope your festive holidays were wonderful. Mine have been great, I have seen family and friends and started a new project and managed to quilt three of my own quilt tops.





Quilt Information:

Pattern - Moda Cake Mix Papers #2
Measurements - 53" x 67"
Batting - Wool/Polyester.
Backing - Blue Paisley.
Quilting - E2E Quilting - Geo Tiles.
Threads - Glide.

I started this quilt at a class at The Country Yard using two Kona Solids and a Moda Layer Cake - Road 15 by Sweetwater. I had a couple of spare blocks left over so one was snapped up to use as a label.




Quilt Information:

Pattern - Strawberries Forever - By Natalia Bonner
Measurements - 61" x 61"
Batting - Wool/Polyester.
Backing - Pieced from scraps.
Quilting - E2E Quilting - Snow Globe.
Threads - Glide.

Natalia asked me if I would do a pattern test for her, she gave me a choice of three patterns, I went with this fun quilt using my 2.5" squares. I haven't put a label on it yet as I haven't decided if it's a keeper or to give as a gift.






 Quilt Information: 
Pattern - Scrap Vomit
Measurements - 53" x 53"
Batting - Polyester.
Backing - Pieced scrappy.
Quilting - E2E Quilting - Frilly Hearts
Threads - Glide.

Another quilt made from my 2.5" scrappy squares, this one is for my gift box.


I made three zippered pouches while my granddaughter stayed, they are addictive to make and likable as  my granddaughter has taken all three home! Again using my 2.5' squares people!


We went pony riding, visiting friends alpaca's, made muffins, did sewing together, went to the beach, not always taking a photo, simply enjoying and being plugged into the moment.
