Meet Hibiscus, new pattern release!

 

 

A very cute panel caught my attention some time ago

and I couldn’t wait to design a new quilt just for it.

 

 

 

This panel is from the Tropical Zoo range, part of the Devonstone Collection from

2 Green Zebras, also has some equally cute matching coordinates,

 

 

Along with some pretty Devonstone Solids.

 

 

To  feature the blocks I framed them with an easy sawtooth border.

Then added the same sawtooth border in a softer Devonstone Solid

in the surrounding blocks.

 

After quilting its time for lots of pics.

Have to have the right weather, not too sunny or windy.

 

 

Pattern now available through all good patchwork stores.

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.

New Quilt Sample!

A wintery version of Belle Rouge,

back from the quilters and binding completed.

I headed out to photograph it on a cold and blowy winters day.

 

 

 

 Although you can’t tell from the photos the wind was blowing a gale.

 

 

So close to Spring the wattle blossoms are flowering!
