Hello lovely quilters!


I’m very, very happy to say the ‘Who’s at the Zoo‘ quilt top has been finished, bundled up, and posted to the lovely Julie to work her magic. I’m extraordinarily pleased that I finished a quilt and didn’t bin it because I didn’t think it was good enough to be released. I’m hoping the pattern […]

Happy Sunday Yee-haw!


Good morning and Happy Sunday to y’all. I had to go and get a Covid test bright and early this morning, I’m feeling fine, I’m just a low risk casual contact from a shopping centre. To celebrate my early morning nasal probe I’ve put four PDF patterns on special for the next 24 hours! You […]

Fairytale Friday


Hey lovelies, due to tech issues there won’t be a Fairytale update today. Apologies to all, there will be a double issue next instalment day. It’s the perfect opportunity to catch up! Love to all, toni xx

Fun at the Brisbane Pole…


Howdy folks, gosh it’s cold, damp, and miserable here today. So much for the ‘Sunshine State’ LoL. It’s the perfect day for hot coffee, happy quilts, and more happy quilts. It’s been a busy week again, but this time a productive one thank goodness. Before I forget the ‘Fun at the North Pole’ PDF quilt […]

Fusible techniques.

I thoroughly recommend using an applique sheet when putting more complex shapes together, seriously it will revolutionise your applique life. The tutorial was mostly written to show […]

Fairytale Friday #9


It’s been another hectic week here at the Red Boots house. My hubby got his first Covid vaxx and the rest of us got our second. So yippee, we’re 4/5ths fully vaccinated now. We had a few side effects from the vaxx again – mostly joint aches, stiff necks, and foggy, headachey heads. Funny story […]

Never Smile at a Crocodile.


Hello lovelies, how are y’all this sunny Winter’s Monday? We spent a very busy weekend carving out a space in our garden where we can sit and have a cup of coffee without being seen or shouted at by our neighbour. It wasn’t easy, he has a remarkable ability to find where we are, but […]

Day One.


Hey y’all, thank you for your kind messages. I’ve had a talk to my VOC counsellor and we’ve come up with some ways to help me through this. I don’t want this nutter to define me anymore. He’s been in my head and in my space for far too long. I can’t do anything about […]

FriYay!


Hey lovely quilters how are you all today? I don’t have anything for you this week, I don’t feel much like doing anything happy, my neighbour is playing up again and we lost another contract on the house. The zoo quilt is coming along, I have so much to share, so many almost finished projects […]
