WIP Wednesday: the one with a QAL!

Done: Quilt Backings!

I got four of them together and they're being posted this morning!

WIP: Snowflake Quilt

I think I'm going to have to draft a paper-piecing pattern for these blocks. They can be done in pieces, but it's finicky. The first block was pretty bad. The second block was a little better.


Of course, the block that has all the really wonky seams is the one with the really visible colours!


WIP: Passacaglia

Another Rosette done!


Just have to finish sewing the last one together, And then we'll start on the smaller part-Rosettes for the lower half of the quilt! Slowly, slowly, slowly!

SeaBreeze Mini QAL

I'm also instahopping one of the days - I think I'm the 24th July for the instahop. I'll need something to show by then, won't I? EEP!


And today is the start of the Sydney Quilt Show 2014 - ooh, and Kim Bradley's Creations has Cotton+Steel in and it's being cut at her warehouse today! Looking forward to getting my hands on that.

I went with a couple of friends, among them Jenn of Penny Poppleton, who won second prize for her quilt South-West Sunset!

As for purchasing things, I was pretty restrained, and only bought one 'jelly roll' of Reece Scanell, visible on the bottom right of the photo.


So what have you been doing? I'm linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced!


  1. Your rosettes are spectacular ! It's the first time I see something like that. I also really like your snowflakes (especially the color choice). It is somewhere on one of my want-to-do list.

  2. Your pieces are coming along beautifully. these are tedious blocks, they look great!

  3. They look great! Well worth the effort. Would sure love to see a paper pieced pattern for them as I don't reckon I'd be up to the challenge. Thanks, Jen

  4. What fantastic blocks! love your fabrics :)

  5. The snowflake blocks are stunning. Thanks for sharing!

  6. I love your rosettes. Great work, nice blog!

  7. Your Snowflake blocks are fantastic. How big is each finished block?

  8. Beautiful rosettes and wonderful snowflakes.
