A Christmas Present

I finally started my Charley Harper quilt. I have been a bit scared to start this as I love the fabric so much I was worried I would stuff it up and waste the fabric.

I used a tutorial by Hyacinth Quilt Design but I made the blocks a little bigger so I could cut larger fussy cut squares. This design really makes me think instead of mindlessly following instructions. I think I prefer mindlessly following instructions.

I finished the batman cushion I am was making for my son.
I still have quite a bit of this fabric left from the quilt I made 2 years ago, so I can see more batman projects in the future.

Bright Sun

I finished another quilt top! Work has been very quiet, a little too quiet but I think that will change soon. This was made with a layer cake of Bright sun and silver background. One good thing about living in Australia is we get some fabric early. I got the idea for this design from a kit a friend bought from Fifis Fabricology. Their pattern used 2 different half square triangles to make the flying geese but had some plain background interspersed which I liked ( and copied). I am making a mini that is similar with half square triangles.
