Last one for 2011...

Again, started many years ago (8 or 9) and again, stitched on Calico! Pattern by Barri of Bareroots. Now finished, but need to find somewhere to hang it!

Weekender bag

Bag pattern by Viv Robinson - Great bag for the weekend - just chuck everything in. Oh yeah and forget expensive leather bag handles - you can find them on an old bag at your local Op shop!

Oh wait, there's another one..

Rosie Quinlan's pattern - "Love is". The blocks were stitched several years ago (on Calico!!) and i finally put it together. I did not do the borders as the per the original pattern, opting to do a simple Black, White and Burgundy arrangement.

Log Cabin challenge

Above: Log cabin blocks purchased from the Mennonite Resource Centre in Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA on our trip earlier this year. Pieced by me as a mini quilt.

Crazy Log Cabin - Kit purchased from Material Obsession - Sydney. Pieced and hand quilted (simply) by me.

Both were made as part of our Patchwork Group challenge for 2011 - "Any thing/Variation Log Cabin"

Dear Jane.....

My Dear Jane journey started in 2009 and after abut 18 months I was over it! My patience ran out, so the project was shelved, until mid 2011 Sandra at Foothills - Tecoma showed me a pic of a quilt she saw on her US travels which incorporated a "DJ" style block. After a light bulb moment and some pattern drafting - Jane's School house was born. Each school house incorporates the finished DJ blocks.

Another creation.

Gorgeous Gingerbread house made by the very clever 5 yo Caitlyn!

Another one...

I made this one recently for a long time friend of ours.

More finishes......

Bunches of Origami flowers made from vintage music paper and vintage buttons and knitting needles. I made several bunches as Xmas gifts, but still have to make some for myself!
