Jelly Girl

Another quilt I love - "Jelly Girl" designed by Joanna Figueroa and made using fabrics designed by her (Figtree & Co).  This quilt is made with a jelly roll plus some background fabric and goes together brilliantly.

I added two rows to the length so that the quilt would sit better on a bed.

Once again I asked Karen to use "Orange Peel" quilting - it's such a great design.

I love the backing too - it's such a pretty print.

Cutting Out

I've been procrastinating lately and that has meant lots of cutting out 1-1/2" strips for some quilts"to be made in the future.

"Sweet Escape", a Thimble Blossoms design in Bonnie and Camille "One Fine Day" and "Sunday Stroll".

"Rainbow Connection", another Thimble Blossoms design, in the same fabrics and loads of Bonnie and Camille scraps.  I'm hoping there will be enough to start a Tiny Nine Patch quilt.

Lots of Bonnie and Camille and Thimble Blossoms fabrics have been used to cut out "Hello Sunshine".  I've been wanting to make this quilt for ages.

Last quilt cut out is "Flower Girl 2", another Thimble Blossoms design and I've used Tasha Noel's "Quilt Fair"for this quilt with Sherri and Chelsi's "Simply Delightful" fabric for the background.

I'm making myself finish the two quilt tops underway now before I start one of these new quilts.

Hannah's Garden

This is the second time I've made "Hannah's Garden" designed by Treehouse Textiles - this time I added and extra row of large blocks so the quilts sits well on a queen-sized bed. 

This was a good stash-buster.  I did add a border to the quilt top but made an error and the border didn't sit well so I cut it off before binding the quilt.

"Clamshells" is another favourite quilting design and it looks lovely on this quilt.

I love the border of smaller square-in-square blocks.

 Latest quilt finished is "Hometown" - another quilt made in Camille's "Lighthearted" fabric and designed by Camille (Thimble Blossoms).

Once again I asked Karen to use Orange Peel and I love how it looks.

I'd love to live in this house.

I have a dear friend in America and she sent a gorgeous parcel for Daisy - this sweet outfit for spring (it's so hard to resist clothing featuring daisies)

and the most wonderful vintage feedsack quilt top with loads of daisy fabrics.  

She also included a little present for Vinnie - great timing because I could take it to his party.  When I find a suitable backing, I'll send the quilt to Karen for quilting.

Flower Girl

A couple of years ago a friend sent me a huge parcel of fabric and in the parcel was an original kit for "Flower Girl"in Bonnie and Camille's "Marmalade" fabric - this is fabric range was so popular when it first came out and has become much sought after.

I always love Orange Peel quilting and it looks so good on this quilt - Karen quilted this quilt.

The quilt is now with my friend who sent the fabric and I have a loads of leftovers of the fabric to add to my stash.

Sugar Dish

I've wanted to make this quilt for ages and have no idea why I hadn't made it before.  I love Dresden Plates and these are so cute. 

The quilt is designed by Allison Harris of Cluck Cluck Sew and the fabric is Figtree and Company's "Stitched".  I added a border from another Figtree pattern, "Kiss Me" to make the quilt a bit larger.

The Baptist Fan quilting by Quilting on the Coast (Karen), looks wonderful.

The backing is a Figtree and Company wideback.


The first of my "Lighthearted" fabric quilts - "Edelweiss" designed by Camille Roskelley, Thimble Blossoms, who also designed the pretty fabric.  The background is Moda Bella Solid Ruby Ice.

Karen used "Modern Loops" for the quilting.
