Schlep Bag

Sclep Bag I

Hello Everyone,

I came across a couple of schlep bags a while back and decided to make one. I found a free pattern here from Heirloom Creations. I made the outer bag and the handles according to the pattern from some forgotten fat 1/4’s I had in my fabric stash. But I added the batting to the outer bag instead of the lining. I also didn’t piece the lining, instead I cut out  two 20″ squares from cotton fabric. Read More

Card Trick Quilt Block

Hello Everyone,

One of my favourite quilt blocks is the the Card Trick block. My second wall hanging I did nearly 20 years ago was a big card trick block with a few borders around it. I won’t show you that one, but I made a wall hanging with four smaller card trick blocks a few years ago, that one I have no problem showing you.

Quilt Show, Black Dress and Applique

Today I went to the Australasian Quilt Convention (AQC) in Melbourne. I looked at a stunning quilt exhibition of quilts made by some very talented people. It was a lot of people so it was almost hard to move during the middle of the day. I listened to a couple of seminars and looked at a lot of cool and beautiful things. I didn’t do much shopping but I plan to go back on Saturday with my daughter. It will definitely be more shopping then. Read More

Happy Easter

20160316_032134139_iOSIt is almost Easter and I made some eggs earlier this week for my Easter basket that I made about a month ago, the tutorial is on my tutorials page.
I used a pattern I stumbled across while I was doing some blog reading last week. The pattern is by Retromama and the link to the pattern is here.
Have you done any Easter crafting this week?

The rest of the sewing I have done this week is working on a new pattern that I will share with you later.

Happy Easter and don’t eat to much chocolate. Take care!
