Purple Pineapple

Finally sewing. I spent last week in Perth and now I am home and doing some sewing! Even though Psych has finished for ever, I still have a thing for pineapples. I have loved this mini for a while but not a big yellow fan so decided on a purple pineapple. Mix that with Kate Spain and you have a winner

Coffee

I love the Stars Hollow quilt by Amy at During Quiet time and thought I would make some coffee cups. I simplified the mug as I liked this fabric with only a band. I then chickened out when I looked at the pieces for steam. One day I will try again as I really the like the pattern but I still like it without steam.

March OMG


I have decided on a change of project for my OMG for March. I want to finish this flimsy that is going to be for a friend. It is the layer cake pop pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop. I love the pattern but I don't love this quilt. Hopefully my friend will. She loves Carolyn Friedlander and white so she should. I only have one row to do before so I might even get it basted.

I finished my monthly goal again. I am linking to Elm Street Quilts. I am very happy with how this looks and now I have to try and quilt it.  I really hate basting!!!!!!

Carolyn Friedlander


I want to make a quilt for a friend for her 50th birthday. She loves Carolyn Friedlander so I thought the outhouse quilt made with Carolyn Friedlander fabric would be perfect. Here are the first six houses. They are paper pieced and look great but they take me an exceptionally long time to do!
I am going to make the layer cake pop pattern as well as I want to give her a lap quilt too. I briefly considered a lap quilt with the outhouse pattern and then I realised I am far too slow to even consider this.

Layer Cake Pop

These are 4 blocks from the Fat Quarter Shops, layer cake pop. I love how they look when you put them together. I pulled the fabric for this from a layer cake of Kate Spains Latitude. This was a test to see if I should make one for a friend from some Carloyn Friedlander fabric. I think it will look great. I just need to buy some silver background fabric to start the new quilt.

February goal

I have started making a sliced coin quiltalong quilt using all the Melba fabric. I had to modify the tutorial from Don't Call Me Betsy as I did not have fat quarters. I want to finish the flimsy by the end of the month.
It is a gift for Dave so I have to make it when he is not around. He is off to Bathurst this weekend so I should be able to get a lot done!
