Starstruck Quilt - new Quilt Pattern!

"Oh Boy"  is certainly right - this fabric range by Lori Whitlock for Riley Blake Fabrics is a winner for the boys. 
I am really excited to release my new pattern Starstruck.

Starstruck is a quilt to show off and feature those wonderful patterned and feature fabrics you have been eying off or dying to use. It is a fun and modern quilt pattern with the feature fabric or patterned fabric becoming the star of this quilt. 

Whether you are after a quilt for a baby, girl or boy this quilt pattern will be just what you are after and very versatile to suit different fabrics, colours and patterns.

This fabric range has just the right mix of the cutest patterns with aeroplanes, animals and cars as well as great co-ordinates to go with it. The range is now available and I am sure it will be a hit.

The quilt pattern is now available here at my- 

Etsy Store available for immediate download in PDF format. 
Happy sewing!  This quilt I had long arm quilted by Carol over at The Quilting Cottage.  I love the stars and loops that add to the design of the blocks.

Sweet Home - How sweet it is.

It is easy to create beautiful quilts when you start with beautiful fabrics.  I have been sewing with Melly and Me's latest range "Sweet Home" from Riley Blake Fabrics for Millhouse Collections.  

And it is just the cutest!  The range includes a beautiful feature Main print with just the right mix of co-ordinating fabrics with flowers, characters and geometric prints all to complement in three different colour ways.  Of course I had to go pink!

I just knew that my new pattern - Hop, Skip, Jump! would just be perfect for these fabrics with such a beautiful panel print to feature.

I pieced this quilt using Aurifil in #2024 - my go to white!  I used 50wt for the piecing.  Ta Da!

I machine quilted it using the lines in the quilt and echoed this through the feature print.  For the machine quilting I used Aurifil #2423.  Just the perfect shade of pink to work across all the colours and even through the white and pink spot background. For the binding Aurifil #4020 was just perfect to match the hot pink heart fabric.

I could not resist putting a strip of the feature print through the backing.

Melanie from Melly and Me has a new range that will be out in December called Wildflower Meadow - this range looks equally as beautiful.  

Head over to my Etsy store and you can download the PDF Pattern direct to get sewing straight away.

"Oh Boy" - such a fantastic range for the Boys!

I have to admit I find it much easier to pick "girly" things.  I have 2 girls, most of my friends have girls as do my family.  So when it comes to picking fabrics for the boys I do find it a little harder.  Well "Oh Boy" hits the mark.  This fabulous range by Lori Whitlock is for Riley Blake Designs.  I have been lucky enough to get my hands on some thanks to Millhouse Collections and is just super duper cute.

So off to create and sew with these great colours and patterns to design a new quilt.  Couldn't ask for a better job!  Stay tuned as this pattern will be available soon.
