Behind the scenes

At the moment I feel like the rough water beneath the boat.  All looks calm on the top but here - behind the scenes I have been madly sewing and stitching working on lots of upcoming projects.  There are a lot of projects that I work on for the Magazines and other Publications that I can only show you sneak peaks and I have to keep things under wraps -  I love sharing and only showing bits and pieces kills me!

This big pile of projects left the other day - can't wait to share with you the actual fronts and all of these projects later down the track.  

Anyway something I can show you is a project that I have just started (in-between far too many other unfinished projects).  Green Tea and Sweet Beans by Jen Kingwell has been around for a little while and I have seen several interpretations of this pattern - all stunning.  Some people have hand sewn the whole project using the templates but I have decided to mix it up and machine sew some blocks and hand sew others using techniques that I like and are far more familiar with.

I started with a Starter Kit from Westwood Acres Fabrics for this quilt and then went through my stash pulling fabrics that I thought show off the types and colours of fabrics that are my favourites.  These are my blocks so far and I am pretty happy with how it is all coming together at the moment.

 Propellar Blocks

Berry Basket

Drunkards Path

Double Pinwheels
(which despite unpicking twice are still sewn together moving in the wrong direction)

Churn Dash


Anyway there are a few custom order quilts which I am about to start that I can share with you as I go - so looking forward to not being so secret squirrel about all that I am working on.
