A quilt for Kylie

This lovely lady became an aunts for the first time last month so of course a quilt was called for.

She went and picked out the fabrics for this very cute quilt.


All the left overs were used in the back, which meant that I only used one length of fabric for the back as the quilt is 58" square so no scraps from this quilt.


Of course it had to have a label.

I bought a sample pack from Maze and Vale, Leslie's fabrics are lovely.

Just enough in each sample to make some luggage labels, I like to have some of these on hand they make sweet handmade gifts.

A bit of sharing ...... I fashioned these out of wire coat hangers they are the most useful hooks when taking quilt photos I just use a pin to attach them to the back of the quilt and I can hang it anywhere.

Like in the tree above.

A bit of this and a bit of that

A few weeks back I was lucky enough to win a give away on Leslie's of Maze and Vale lesliekeating blog. I could pick 4 panels that was the hard part she has some amazing panels to pick from. These panels are the perfect size to make .......

One of these ...... the pattern for this is one of Nicki's Nicole Mallalieu Design / You SEW Girl! - 200mm Chunky Purse Kit

I made a couple of gifts for a blog friend in England Stitcherydo a shopping bags from my pattern

And this cute Koala a Rosalie Quinlan Pattern. Shirley has recently become a grand mother and I thought Maisie should have a Koala.

On one of my many walks I always love this view.

A couple of posts back I put up some photos of our beach without sand this snap was taken on Friday morning and the beach looked much the same on Sunday.
This photo was taken this morning
Mother Nature is amazing it would be tons and tons of sand moved in a few days.


You don't have to get up very early to beat the sun up at the moment. Day light saving ends this weekend end and I do love day light saving however I need a miners lamp to walk in the morning.

I love sun rise it is the best part of the day when everything is waking up and and we start with a clean palette.
