Farmers Wife Sampler Quilt Week 6

So sorry it has been a while since we've checked in. I've had a few custom jobs weighing on me that really needed to get done as well as a craft camp to attend!

So at our craft camp I learnt the art of paper piecing. Something I wasn't sure how I'd go with. But I can honestly say that I am LOVING it. So here are some of the blocks from the book that I have paper pieced. 

The secret to such a successful time can be contributed to my teacher at camp, so thank you Clare, and this awesome tool. 

It's the add a quarter ruler that we have instock now and it is wonderful. A must for every foundation paper piecer out there.

ABC boys quilt FINISHED

Well, almost finished. It needs to be quilted and bound but the main part is done. 

30 little blocks later and it is done. My favourite is the B block. Sooo cute. 

Oh and did I say before I would get the girls version going once this one was finished? 

Ta-da. Kits are all done and available now but we thought it would be nice to have a store sample. So here goes. 

This is the pattern. Also available now. 

And here is what I've started...

Christmas Club project 2

Well hello March. Nice to see you. I can't wait for the cooler Autumn weather to begin.

It is a free pattern provided by

Fabric kits are now available, even if you aren't in the Christmas Club for just $22 each. (plus $3 postage)

February flashback!

We love to see a picture of you with your monthly project... Or even if you just send me a picture of your project would be lovely. 

Our lovely friend and Christmas Clubber Tracey. 

We have already had one sewing group inspired by our first project. So if you are looking for another of the star pincushion kits in fabrics other than Christmas, these beauties are waiting for you.

FWSQ Week 5

I hope you all have been having fun with these little blocks. 

For number 6 I used 3" thangles. I made 8 and then joined 2 HSTs together to make the quarter square blocks. 

This is our first tiny square block. These 1" HSTs are ridiculously cute. 

I had a bit of trouble getting this one. Let me know how you go. 

#11 has used 1.5" thangles. 

Have fun ladies

ABC boys quilt BOM progress

So I have spent the day preparing all the remaining blocks for this delightful little quilt. 

There is 14 left out of 30. But I figured the hard part is now done, so it is my goal to complete a block a day for the next fortnight to finish off this beauty. 

I do like to get all the prep done no matter what project I am working on at the beginning. 

So here's Sunday's block, check!

And of course because it's Sunday, it's yoga day and I thought I'd share my lnew mat bag I finished this week. It has an internal divider to keep my mat rolled and then has HEAPS of storage on the other side for towels, drink bottles, keys, wallet, yoga blocks and straps too!!

This is the link to the free pattern for this yoga bag. A great weekend sewing project.

Gum Drop mania

Everyone has gone a little gummy this month. In a really great way. We have been busy making Amy Butlers beautiful Gum Drop pillows. These are great for lazing around and kicking back. 

The pattern is available in store or by mail order. And comes with two different sized Gum Drops. 

Here are some that we have made and a lot that our class ladies have made over the last few weeks. Enjoy
