Something for Charlie

A little while ago a lovely friend of mine had a sweet baby called Charlie. I decided to make a quilt to welcome him to the world and have been a little sidetracked until now. My plan is now to get it done before he starts crawling (so I have some time up my sleeve).

A sweet little cot sized quilt made from the Apple Jack line from Moda.



Cappuccino decided to help during the planning phase.



A little chain piecing and the centre panel was done! So quick, I never knew what I was missing until I tried it, chain piecing saves an bundle of time.

Apples Part 2

Just in case you thought I had forgotten! (Well I kind of forgot to blog it, but I didnt forget to sew it!)

My first ever Jelly Roll Race Quilt top is done and waiting for a back before I can finish it off.



I am quite pleased – love the colour combo and its a super easy quilt top.



Should be the next to be quilted, and will be good for some straight line quilting practice.

Half Moon Modern Chevrons Part 1

And so on to the next project!

Chevrons are everywhere right now and this is a quick and easy quilt I am piecing up using this tutorial from the Moda Bake Shop

Progress so far



And a play with the layout

This will be sit in the UFO pile for a bit, while I wait for my free motion quilting foot to arrive. I’m a little excited to give FMQ a crack!

Umbrella Prints Trimmings Competition 2013 No2

I had a little time this weekend so I thought I would use one of my ‘just in case’ trimmings packets for a little project I had been meaning to do for a while. I loved the bunting themed pouch from and I followed the tutorial from the very clever Anna at Noodlehead here


And here is the result – my new tablet case. Lined with some gorgeous Umbrella Prints Floating Wild Grasses (of course)




Umbrella Prints mixed trimmings pack with Floating Wild Grasses lining and some denim from my stash. I think its all coordinated nicely. I also ironed some fusible fleece to the wrong side of the denim for some cushioning and stability for the applique.
