A Finish - Strawberry Social

"Strawberry Social"

Pattern by The Pattern Basket

This was one of those patterns that as soon as I became aware that it existed I knew that I just had to make it.  Better still, it's been mostly made from my scrap basket of Bonnie and Camille Fabrics and entirely from Bonnie and Camille's fabric ranges.


Finished Size - 53" x 66"

I sent this one off to LadyBug Quilting here in Bendigo for to finish it off and then I spent last night hand stitching the binding. I do love hand stitching a binding.


I can't remember the name of the pattern that I've chosen but I do think I will be using it again as its so pretty and soft. Perfect for this quilt.

The backing for this Quilt was also my first play with the Fancy Fox Pattern.



I do love playing with Quilt backs. It is fun making each one individual and
its almost like have two quilts in one :o)



I've now left this one with Linda for a little custom quilting and I cant wait to see how it turns out.


Enjoy your Sunday.

Foxing around with Daysail


What does one do with an open Jelly Roll?

Make a "Fancy Fox"
pattern by Elizabeth Hartman


then make more


Sew them together


I have used an Essex Linen Blend for this project and I love how it makes the Foxes pop.

I plan on putting this one up in my new sewing space so it made sense to 
pin it up and see how it looks.


My sewing machine will eventually be set up under my new wall hanging.
Now to work out how to quilt it.

Amazing .....

Do you see it?


And it's here too.


Arn't these Layer Cake bundles so cute.

So what is it....

"Daysail" 
by Bonnie and Camille is in my house!

This week has been a great one for fabric goodies in the mail.
First off were these.


The next day there were these :o)


Can you see my new Red Crochet Hook?
It has Bling :o)

Oh these also arrived.  Just as well my new hook did too!


Did you  notice that there were 2 Jelly Rolls.
One for my "Tower of Bonnie and Camille" and one to play with.


I am in love with this range. I wasn't sure that I would like it but now, seeing it in person,
it is so close to becoming my favourite Bonnie and Camille Range to date.

What are your thought?

New bed means new quilt right?

"Big Game"

It's time for a new masculine quilt.
(In full disclosure, I started this one before we moved 
and it is currently in a box somewhere)

First the fabric pull.....


Lots of tracing, cutting .... that is a LOT of antlers!
and fusing.


I've had a play with layout.
Think I might leave some blocks blank.
Now to decide, quilt as I go, if so order in some batting 
or sent out to be quilted therefor just stitch down the deer.


Until next time.
Hugs Sharon

Ripple Love

My Ripple Blanket

Remember these?


I've been playing with them over the last two weeks.


Slowly but surely it is growing


I am nearly half way.



About to start my 42 colour change and loving every row.

So pleased that I've learnt to Crochet, it is highly addictive.
