Bunting of the quilted kind

Bunting made for an online market, quilted bunting none the less, who would of thought? Photo's taken at our local showgrounds, it was a surprisingly nice day, for the middle of Winter. I love the Dairy Goat sign, can't wait till we have some land and I can get a few more animals, but not planning on goats, I hear they are very naughty, get into everything and have been known to chew car tyres!
The frost the next morning? Not so nice. And the constant rain since? Awful. This weather is just perfect for sewing though, more tom come, this week has flown past with the public holiday Monday, thanks to the Queen, Happy Birthday to you!

Jungle Theme

Sneak Peak for an up and coming market night, theme is Jungle. Organised by WAHM in Melbourne Market Night 21st of June. Not that I am a WAHM, but I am in Melbourne, sort of, can get there in less than an hour if you do 110km an hour down the freeway at 3am. Not that I condone speeding.
Looking forward to this market, had to really think! Full pics to come, wet and wild here, no chance for a decent photo.

Snow clothes

Six weeks till our snow trip, kids are looking good. Still need to buy goggles, boots for the boys and some thermal underwares. And a few extra pairs of gloves, I hear there like socks.

Retro Flowers

I was all ready to jump on the Swoon wagon, but the sheer size of the blocks and the amount of cutting put me off for now, I need something a tad easier to manage. I've seen a few other patterns I like just as much, especially this one I am going to make for the boys.  However, for now I have settled on this one for me; Retro Flowers.
Using my 4" Drunkard's Path templates, I have made one block, but its come up a tad wonky so will perhaps try again, I need 16 blocks in total. Tip is to use a  small rotary cutter, the 45mm is to hard to navigate close to the curve and get a clean cut in one go. And invest in a curvemaster foot, no pinning required! Retro Flowers pattern here and some really good rotary cutting tips here.
