Learning from a master!

I was lucky enough to attend a trunk show with 

Jenny Doan the other night!

What a delight she is- truly inspiring, generous with 

her time and knowledgeable!

 I don't own many charm packs and they were all 

given to me by friends...

So I decided it was time to make a baby quilt using 

the Window Pane Disappearing Nine Patch pattern.

More details can be found here

This range of fabric was called Bunny Tales by 

Darlene Zimmerman, long discontinued it seems.

I knew I wanted to make it larger than the 30" it 

finished up at this stage;

Pardon the heads, I was in the third row!

So I added a deeper blue 1" border and a 4" spotted one!

I really loved how it turned out!

I think Mr Tiger is pretty pleased too!

I have a few more ideas for the rest of the charm 

packs I have in stash....

Happy sewing!

Shadows of Love

I finished piecing together my Delilah quilt today.

Even my Ikea trolley is colour co-ordinated!

Here are month 12 blocks names Black Cockatoo.

I calmed the overall look by using a grey spot  

in the 3" filler blocks, rather than 30 different prints.

And why have I named it "Shadows of Love"?

The Tom Jones' song (Jen Kingwell the designer is a 

big Tom Jones fan!) is about domestic violence

Using a lyric from it would be 

might be more relevant.

I have had a love/hate relationship with this quilt 

hence the shadow that hangs over it.

I've already purchased my backing...

The one on the right.

and a few other fun fabrics!

And I've not been doing much sewing or blogging 

lately....because of this little fellow!

My beautiful grandson, Eli

I have a good excuse, don't you think?

Happy days!
