Tilda Plum Garden Designer Showcase!

 

 

Recently I was invited to participate in the Tilda Plum Garden Showcase

along with lots of talented designers sponsored by 2 Green Zebras.

 

This very pretty range was released on the July 1st and is now

readily available from many stores.

 

 

 

Its so hard to choose which one I liked the most as they are all so gorgeous

and as I used each one it became the new favourite.

 

 

 

The coordinates Berry Jam and the Tea Towel Basics are perfect

match not only for your Plum Garden project but for your other Tilda projects.

Keep watching for my project reveals in the coming days here and at @franceslillydesigns.

Road Trip to K & K Warehouse Sale!

Recently we took a road trip to attend Kennard & Kennard

Warehouse sale. I also met one of the very talented designers

of their Australiana fabrics Amanda Brandl it was wonderful to talk about her

current ranges and I look forward to seeing the new ones.

 

 

For some time I have  been working on some new quilt designs

for Kennard & Kennard

using their latest Australiana fabric ranges.

These fabrics are gorgeous and I can’t wait

to start making them up. I’ve also seen some of the new ranges coming

and have many new designs on the drawing board.

Contact Kennard & Kennard if you wish to purchase

any of the patterns below.

You can also view them on my pattern page.

Playing with a box of leftovers from previous quilts.

 

 

From leftovers to this stack of four patch blocks.

Still loving these colours.

Classes & Trunk Shows

So excited to have spent some time

teaching and having trunk shows

in country New South Wales recently.

Shown are a few highlights, as always should have taken more photos.

 

 

Always a favourite, my ‘Illusions’ quilt.

 

 

Another favourite, my ‘Heyfield Station Tote’

with the ever popular 3dimensional flowers.

 

 

A big thank you to everyone who made us so welcome.

 

 

On our way home, we stopped to catch up with family and friends.

This was the view from the road of Mt Buller, glistening in the glorious spring sunshine.

And below from a different road, with Mt Buller on the right

and Mt Stirling on the left.

Weekend Retreat!

Recently I was lucky to spend some time catching up with these

lovely ladies again the this year at the

Lily Lane retreat in Lakes Entrance.

 

 

 

Show and tell is always popular, this version of Illusions had just been quilted.

All hand pieced in repro fabrics and looks absolutely stunning.

The photo doesn’t do it justice.

 

 

Also progress from a previous class I taught at Lily Lane,

this version of Twilight Clematis. (Flowers in progress)

 

 

A  couple of my new quilts were also displayed.

Spring Song.

 

 

and a new version of Boathouse Tavern.

 

 

And whats a retreat without a visit to the local patchwork shop, Lily Lane Too.

 

 

Lots of goodies to temp you, just a few made their way home with me.
