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.
