A Happy Dance for Happy Quilts

We’ve done it, we’ve updated all of the patterns and they’re just waiting to be print checked. It was a marathon effort, one we don’t want to repeat anytime soon! Thank you to Terri and everyone who has been helping me out, I appreciate it so much. I can now get back to the job of making happy quilts! This is Jill’s Gnome Sweet Gnome quilt, isn’t it gorgeous! Thanks for sharing Jill. You can find loads of our ‘seconds’ (printed) patterns in the Esty store. Most of them are… Read more A Happy Dance for Happy Quilts

A pig in mud.

Well hey everyone, how has your week been? Mine has been one great big jumble of weird work schedules, uni (college) exams, end of semester parties, visitors from the US, and the horrors of the house being re-wired. Add nutty neighbours to the list and you get the gist. I sat down to have lunch today and woke up two hours later with my sandwich stuck to my shirt LoL. I worked like crazy today to get the final instalment of the This Little Piggy quilt done only to realise… Read more A pig in mud.

Scrapelicious failure?

The feeling you get when the scrappy, happy border you’ve been planning looks great in real life but absolutely garbage in the photos. I want this quilt to be so happy it makes your face hurt from smiling. I’ll add the third row/border and see what happens but I think I may have a date with a unpicker! In the words of my Grandmother… damn and blast! xx

Another trip around the sun…

Hey y’all, how was your weekend? I’m still on weekend time as it’s a public holiday here in Queensland – the Queen’s Birthday long weekend (even though it’s not her actual birthday). It was my birthday on Saturday, my real one LoL. It was nice to celebrate another successful trip around the sun. As is tradition (with us) we’ve spent the weekend watching the Lord of the Rings trilogy whilst eating cake. I will be having a celebratory sale and a few giveaways this week, so please check in mid-week… Read more Another trip around the sun…

The Gnomes in My Garden

Hello happy quilters, how has your week been? We’ve had some lovely Spring weather here in Brisbane and we even had our first storm of the season; it was absolutely fantastic to hear the rain on the roof. The warm weather has brought the wildlife out of hibernation. There are loads of butterflies, native bees, and lizards. Our nutty neighbour has been chasing snakes all week, so I suppose they are awake too LoL. Dave the scrub turkey is still tending to, and increasing the size of his nest; we… Read more The Gnomes in My Garden

The Keeper of the Quilts.

Remy-the-Lion, also known as The Keeper of the Quilts. The tongue out means he’s not moving for anything or anybody. He’s currently obstructing work on my scrap bin bears, the gnomes, and the fairy princesses. We love him even if he is a stubborn, furry, gorgeous, pain in the toosh. He’s also sulking because he was given chicken for dinner and he wanted fish LoL.

This Little Piggy #5

Hi y’all, how’s things with you guys today? It’s time for us to upload the next instalment in the “This Little Piggy” BOM. You can download this month’s instructions (Month #5) as well as previous month’s instructions here. This month we’ve added our farmers to the quilt. We’ve also put together a preview of the quilt (so far) for you. It should help you make a few colour choices and decisions. Please note that this is for illustration purposes only. The sun isn’t fused to the quilt yet and you… Read more This Little Piggy #5
