What do you think Gran?

This is the cushion front I am planning to make for my dad. I used a panel I won ages ago from Emma At Sampaguita Quilts. I have been waiting for the right thing to do with it. Well, what do you think Gran?

Whew I did it

I didn't think I was going to finish the Aurifil BOM in time this month as the next couple of days are pretty busy but I did!

Project Quilting

I really like the idea of project quilting but find I don't have the time or the inspiration at the moment. Until this week. The challenge is triangles. I have been wanting to make new placemats inspired by this tutorial on Moda Bakeshop. I simplified it and used a single fabric instead of charm squares. I want to make 4 arranging the half square triangles differently for each one. I will make one first so hopefully will finish before the dead line.

Batman cushion

I decided on a quick and easy project a few weeks ago and made this cushion for my son. I used the rectangle squared tutorial from Film in the Fridge. I would really like to make a quilt with this block!
Last weekend I did a Sydney harbour challenge. It was between 20-25kms in Sydney Harbour past the zoo, cruise ships, the opera house and under the harbour bridge. It was an amazing experience but the race was gruelling to say the least!

Block 2

I have finished block 2 of the Aurifil BOM. I am using scraps with some fat quarters and a black Kona as it is hard to get black batik. My second block is too small at 12 inches finished because of the half square triangles. I might add a thin blue border if I need to.
