Using 1 layer cake and 1 jelly roll (Love U range) and some chenille fabric this is what it looks like
Firstly i have been really busy making lots of litte projects which i will post five of them today.
This one below is my most exciting one, for a couple of reasons...1. it is new fabric range (Attitude Girls) for Moda which i do have in stock but have not had a chance to add to my website yet. I really think it is perfect for a teenage girl as it really does suit.
2nd reason is that i was very lucky to be invited to a wonderful ladies house so i could quilt it myself on her big quilting frame,
this is the very first quilt i have quilted myself, i had lots of fun and really want my own quilting frame.
Okey Dokey now for my next post...see you in five mins xox

What a beautifal day it is today, not only did i get up early and get all my housework done,
But its just having that feeling of everything falling into place :-)
Below is a table runner and placemats that i made for my kitchen table....
Using 2 pks of Charm Squares from the Boutique Moda Fabric Range !
( I sell on my website http://www.patchy-anne.com.au/)
Be quick if you like this range of fabric as it has sold quickly...
Using the Charm Squares worked really well as there was no cutting !
Same as the table runner..only used a pk of Charm Squares & also had a few left over.
Sorry there is no pattern for this set as it was a matter of laying down the squares and if they looked good just sew them together, quilt and bind..

School has been back for a few weeks now and we are starting to get our life back into a routine again....
This is one of my quilts that I started late last year (2009),
I am very happy to say that it is finished and now in for quilting :D
I decided that I should start using some of the fabric that I sell on my website !
And I was over the moon to have used one jellyroll and one layercake as I saved so much time on cutting......
Below is the Love U range of fabric I used !
I also used a couple of fat quaters of chenille !
This is a photo of it all layed out and ready to be sewn !
Which was a very quick quilt to put together !
All together and ready to be quilted :D
Fingers crossed that it wont be long and I will be able to show you photos of the finished result
I have also been working on the new Celebration of Life quilt BOM in this years Homespun Magazine.... I now have the first months blocks finished and have taken photos BUT my camera battery is now flat and I cannot find the charger....
Where would one put a camera / battery charger ???????
Any Idea's please post them below !!!
Bye for now and happy stitching xox

I am now back in BlogLand...
& will do my best to catch up with a lot of Blogging....
I have also been very lucky to have had two wonderful holidays.
Have taken our five kiddies on a P&O cruise the two weeks before xmas,
Then on boxing day we left for Mulwala on the Vic / Nsw boarder wakeboarding for a week with all my family and their families.
I can tell you one thing i am over holidays now and want to be a hermit and stay in the house for a while, and just sew sew sew !
I have been doing a bit of sewing though with lots of projects started and completed that i will post very shortly..
bye for now
