Family Shaggy

Just Because i don't have near enough projects on the go ..haha i decided to start another one .
Every one in our family fight over using Lily's Shaggy quilt seen here
It was my first attempt at quilting and was completely self taught. The pattern in the magazine was for children to make so i thought i couldn't go wrong :)
So my is to make a super sized version with Bliss Flannels... i love flannel its just so soft and warm .
Another reason to make a shaggy quilt is too use some of the batting offcuts i have accumulated .. So win win !!!!!

Am off to start on the quilting very shortly, should get an hour or so in before we are off to the movies to watch Kung Fu Panda 2 a final holiday treat before the kids all go back to school/preschool on Monday.

Miss B's Quilt

We had a little girl come stay with us for a few months this year and she desperately wanted a quilt of her own as most little girls do.

So i pulled out my blocks from The EB Newbie Quilters swap from a couple of years ago sewed them together with some white sashing and after a quick trip to spotlight for some pink spotty backing fabric i was good to go :)

I love how it turned out the block that all the Eb Newbie quilters made are just lovely!!!!!

I cant wait to get it to her I'm sure she will think its Amazing :)

Quilt Show 2011

Last Sunday i was lucky enough to go to Sydney's Quilt Show and Craft Fair which was held at Darling Harbour Convention Centre.
It was a great day with lots of shopping and looking at some incredible quilts that others had made.
The top picture is a baby quilt with chenille from Margarets Fabrics, next is Sleepy sheep pattern by Monica Poole and Kit with some gorgeous fabrics .
Next is two "Bliss" Flannel Bundles which i intend to make a Shaggy Quilt for me from and last some patterns.
Cant wait for next year!!!!
