The happiest quilts…

Have you tried mixing and matching the templates from the ‘Happy Quilts‘ book to make new designs? Take the pigs and farmers from the Windyhill Farm quilt and the borders from the Princess quilt and voila! This little piggy went to market

How easy is it to change a pattern to suit the recipient? Easy peasy! Liz asked if I had a photo of a boy’s version of the Snuggle Bears pattern in the ‘Happy Quilts‘ book. I didn’t but it’s easy to adapt using the star template from the Hound Dog quilt.

*The colours are a bit off because I used Photoshop but I think it worked a treat.
*No lectures about pink vs. blue etc. please 

You can use the super heroes templates to make multiple Prince Charmings for the princess quilt. You will need to resize the boys a little using your printer options – try printing at 89% of the original size to begin with. Each printer will be different so experiment until you get it right.

And you can adapt the super hero soft toy to make a prince by using the crown from the Princess doll and changing the colours of the clothing! Aren’t my photoshop skills amazing! ROFLOL.

A Spooky Sleepover (Free Pattern)

Are you ready for a spooky sleepover? This quilt-quillow was designed specifically for the little humans that we all love. The pumpkins are friendly, the colours are bright, and it’s perfect for a Halloween sleepover.

A Spooky Sleepover is brought to you for free by the lovely people at Therm-o-Web, the company that makes my favourite brand of fusible webbing, Heat-n-Bond Lite.

The quilt folds up and into a pillow cover which is large enough to fit a cushion and a pair of pajamas.

small-ghosts-and-ghoulsI’ve updated the Little Witches pattern. Little Witches 2 is now available in our Etsy store for the special price of Aud$5 plus appropriate state/country/county taxes.

There will be some giveaways to go with this free pattern, but I’m running late with my deadline and I wanted to get the pattern up asap. I’ll be back early next week with details of the giveaway and maybe another free project.

A Spooky Sleepover.

After a few missteps I finally got the binding on the pumpkin quilt today. Every so often I make such a mess of things the only solution is to sit down and grab the unpicker!

The quilt folds up into a easy-to-carry pocket. There’s room for a small pillow and pajamas too! It’s the perfect sleepover kit for Halloween.

IMG_1378I’ll have a heap of giveaways to celebrate the release too, so stay tuned! xx

Ps. you can make this project as a normal quilt, you don’t have to add the pillow pocket.
