A diamond finish.

Another finish from last year, this is from the Moda Bakeshop website and is called Sunnyside Diamond Zig-Zag quilt and was designed by Janice Ryan of Better Off Thread.  I used the same jelly roll as Janice did, Sunnyside by Kate Spain.




I just noticed that her picture and my picture are both taken on fences with greenery in the background - purely coincidental, the fence is the only tall spot I have that I can peg it up for a photo :)


 A closeup of the quilting, I used a pantograph called Forget Me Knot designed by Janet-Lee Santeusanio.


The backing is a sweetwater print, I think it is from their Sunkissed line.  The binding is Basic Grey grunge.




And here is Bazzill the quilt inspector at work.

The kids are back at school today, and Buggy is missing her boy slave!


Amazing just how difficult it is to pin long lengths of sashing on when there is a cat sitting on it!

Sailing catchup

Catching up a bit here :)

This is a quilt I made last year as a display sample for Millhouse Collections, the Australian distributor for Riley Blake.




And here it is in their booth at Australia Quilt Market in Melbourne!


The pattern is available as a free download on the Riley Blake website.

I'm a bad bad blogger!

But if you are following this blog then you already know that anyway :)

My goal for this blog for this year - more posts with more pictures and less writing.  Because I never have any idea what to write, but always have lots of pictures :)

So what am I up to this week?


Pattern bought, fabric chosen, and 525 seams sewn (not including those I unpicked and restitched!) in 3 days - a new record for me! Now for sashing, borders, and then I can load it onto Gertie to quilt it - yay!!
