Playing with Angels Part 2

I have not posted any blocks as of late because they still have no faces on and it just doesn't look right without cute little button eyes and cheeky bunny smiles. But I have come to the conclusion that I'm sure I can get away with posting these 2 blocks as 'works in progress' rather than ta-da a finished block. Once I have finished all the 'blanket stitching' around the blocks I will go back and enter the cute little detail bits.
But for now...

Playing with Angels Part 1

I am so excited to be doing this BOM. We have had it on offer here at Cobar Quilt Shop for quite some time and I actually started it about 12 months ago when we made our first kit up, but I just hadn't had time to get it all finished. But since finishing the Toytime Circus BOM a couple of weeks ago, I have been tracing like a mad woman preparing all my blocks to begin sewing. I do not have girls but boy if I did... this would be the centre piece of her room! I LOVE this quilt, and I'm not even at the Ta-Da stage yet.
More blocks with no eyes... we'll just have to exercise that imagination again.

This is the PLAY block all finished. I am going to be quilting this quilt myself as well, so keep an eye out for that when the time comes!
Now there was no way that I could leave PLAY feeling all alone on the pile of finished blocks so I decided to give her a friend and got up REEEAALLY early today and did another one! It is very addictive and I couldn't tell you how many I will have for my post next Wednesday, maybe 1, maybe 2, who knows it could very well be the next 4! It just goes to show you that these quilts can take you a whole 12 months to do or they can be done in a matter of weeks (for some I could imagine it may be only days...) For anyone intereseted in signing up to the really sweet girls quilt please contact us on the information above or pop over here to our store.

Happy Thursday everyone. A great day to start something new!

Toytime Circus

I must admit that I did actually finish this quilt a couple days after my last post but had given it back to colleen without taking a picture first. I guess I was just so excited that I forgot. So today I grabbed it back before she sent it off to the Quilter and snapped a couple of shots.
Firstly there was that last block, you know the one... with all 'those' letters! I have to say that it really wasn't that bad. I ploughed through them surprisingly quick. You will have to imagine the eyes on the ringmaster and his wagon of friends though, as I can't sew them on until the Quilter has done her magic.
 It was very bright outside when I took these pictures and as such has shown the fabrics to be a little lighter than what they actually are. Luckily I had snapped pics of them all as I went and you can click back to see each block up close. Well I guess this is it for Toytime Circus. I have had alot of fun creating this masterpiece and hope that you have enjoyed it with me.
Don't forget to leave a comment with a link to your BOM progress so I can check you out too!

New Month, New Year, New " KIT OF THE MONTH" for club members

Hello everyone, happy new year to you all and I hope 2011 brings us all some wonderful times. I get a good start to the day when I click here OneTwoSew. There are some precious moments caught on camera!
Our Quilt of the Month Kit  for January is RETRO. If your not familiar with it, it's one of our own designs. This quilt has been taught here at the Cobar Quilt Shop with beginner stitchers, some as young as 12. It is a very easy to read pattern and goes together in a matter of hours (for the more experienced quilter).
It's a nice size at  49" x 56".

Toytime Circus

Wow, time flies so fast! I have been very busy this past week finishing off ALL of the outer blocks. That's right, I'm up to the last block, the big one in the centre, with all those letters. I love doing all the animals but the letters require so much turning. It is not my most favourite part but as soon as I am past those rascally letters... it will be a quick (but accurate) tidy up of all the blocks and piece the whole beautiful thing together! I am so excited and I hope that my next post will have a final quilt top to show, if not it will be just one more week away!

Block 6
Block 2

Block 1
Awww they are so cute! Just a reminder that the kit that you would buy from our store over here, includes all the fabrics you see here. I stole (ha ha ha) 1 of the pre-cut kits, so what you see, is exactly what you'll get!

If you're working on one of our BOM why not leave a comment with a link to your progress. I would LOVE to see what you're up to. Until next Wednesday...

Happy Sewing
