Neon Bounce - Bloggers Quilt Festival

Neon Bounce - Bloggers Quilt Festival

This is my most recent finish - Neon Bounce. I finished it just in time to come on a recent day trip to Circular Quay in Sydney.  First stop was the Sydney Opera House.  This graceful, iconic building is celebrating it's 40th birthday this week. Happy Birthday Opera House!! From a distance the sail-like building gleams a bright white   but close it looks as though it's made of patchwork. We continued on our way and met a snail who fancied using my quilt as a scarf. On a ferry about to go under the Sydney Harbour Bridge... Happy Clowns , open mouthed in amazement Hard to belive anything is brighter than those neon fabrics but this radiant sun was shining brightly.  But this is my favourite photo of all. Fancy bumping into someone tall enough to hold an 80 inch quilt so effortlessly.  After having a fun day out seeing the sights Neon Bounce looks right at home in the place

Scrappyluscious Stars - Bloggers Quilt Festival

Introducing Scrappyluscious Stars This quilt has been finished for quite a while but I haven't shared it on my blog because it's been waiting for a special photo shoot.   I knew I wanted a location that was colourful and fun somewhere a bit different  A spot that would have a Sydney vibe. I knew the perfect place... So we jumped on a ferry which took us across Sydney Harbour. and soon arrived at Luna Park a place of bright colours and a carnival atmosphere.  I love how the big face is wearing a big pointy compass hat. It matches the points of the Scrappyluscious Stars. The clowns seemed happy to see such a festive quilt.  And these guys looked as though they wanted to run off with it.  Magic Mirrors! A bit of merry-go-round glamour. Scrappyluscious binding. So that's it ladies and gentlemen, Scrappyluscious Stars A quilt full of colourful adventures!!! Fabrics: All c

Pockets full of Posies

Pockets full of Posies

What do you think of my new header? I thought it was about time I had a change. Anyway, here's that little flower I showed a few posts ago And here is the rest of the garden. A lot of the flowers are just pinned in place and I'm slowly appliquing them down, and having fun decorating with stitches, so this is still very much a work in progress.  For the flowers I've mostly used wool felt and added some cotton fabrics for variety and pattern.  The pockets don't stand out very well in the photograph but are much more obvious in real life. I'm hoping my plans for hand quilting will help highlight them even more.  The fires continue to rage throughout the Blue Mountains. It's been truely heartbreaking hearing tragic stories about people losing their homes and properties. The firemen and rescue workers are doing an amazing job and although homes have been burnt down or damaged no lives have been lost. Lucky for us our area has been safe so
