Rainbow Fizz Quilt Set all complete.

The custom order Rainbow Fizz Quilt/Playmat is all finished and has been delivered to its new home.

Lots of beautiful Kona Solids set against the white give the quilt a fresh and colourful look.

Playing with my new Macro Lens on my camera means I can now get some real close up shots which even show the weft and warp threads within the fabric.

The binding choice was easy - I knew it was going to need a stripe and when the backing fabric with the black swirls was chosen by the client it was hard to go past the black and white stripe for the binding.

A matching cushion was also ordered to go in the Nursery for this new impending arrival.

Rainbow Fizz custom order sewing

It is always exciting sewing up a quilt for a little baby soon to arrive.  This custom order was for a Rainbow Fizz.

Laying out and choosing all the shades of Kona to make the quilt a nice square quilt/play mat meant playing with lots of colours and shades to get the rainbow effect across the quilt just right.

Quilt top all ready now to be pinned, sandwiched and machine quilted.

School holidays over - sewing full steam ahead!

The custom Koala quilt I had been working has now made its way to its new home over in Canada!  This is for a new arrival expected in February.  I know it was widely received and hope it become a treasure for a little bundle of joy.

I used free motion quilting over the squares using a random loop pattern and could not go past this pink and white stripy binding for the final touch.

Sitting in my sewing room for a little while now has been this bundle of Lecien Flower Sugar.  I had started to make many months ago some Economy blocks but it had been put to the side with other deadlines and projects to complete.  Funnily enough over the school holidays when I pulled it out again I saw that there was an Economy Quilt-Along happening just by chance.  

So time to get on with making some more blocks.

With several of these Economy block piles made it was time to sew it all together.

Now time to quilt it.  Not sure yet how I will do this but I am sure as I start to sandwich and pin I will be inspired.

One project that was completed was this crochet Market Bag.  Over Christmas I had ordered some yarn for Tangled Yarns and whilst not having made a bag before decided to get one of these Kits to give it a go!  Well since making it I have now bought another 6 colours to make some more as gifts.  I was thrilled with how it turned out.  The Willmark Candy Pop yarn was quite different to work with as it is very textured and course - like string.  

And here are some of the flowers I have made for my Bobble Flower Blanket.
