Port Fairy Tales

Mr. PnP have been away for a short break, 

down on the Shipwreck Coast in western Victoria,

hence the name "Port Fairy Tales".

I had a great opportunity to finish binding my 

Heather Ross/ Sawtooth Mania quilt,

And to get some pretty photos of it!

I had a very willing quilt holder, but this backdrop was 

in the shade!

It was only when we returned to our accommodation 

that I noticed the log with the ocean in the background!

Finally some close-ups of the quilting...

 straight lines on the machine,

and a little Perle handquilting!

Quilt #6 for 2020
Lifetime quilt #124
47" square
"Sawtooth Mania" pattern by OPQ

I only have two quilts at the "WIPs" stage, but before I 

start new one, I have some clothes to make!

Happy sewing!

Starts and Finishes

I love my Alaska sweater!

It is so very cosy and warm.

And this flimsy is finished....

My friend Elizabeth @ Occasional Piece Quilts 

recently released this Sawtooth Mania pattern

8" blocks
There's a good variety of centres to choose from but

 I made 16 blocks with one-inch strips and a 

four-inch border.

I love this block- the green leaf shapes look like 

lilypads for the frogs to sit on!

I pieced the backing from leftover bits and pieces.

I went across to Darn Cheap with the intention of 

purchasing fabric for a skirt.

And I found the perfect wool to match a recent yarn 


And a trip to GJ's found the perfect lining ...

and these 

pretty little rolls of patchwork fabric.

Not sure what I will make but those cool 

wintery tones were calling me.

Now to get knitting...

Happy days!
