Schnitzel and Boo Mini Quilt - Part 2

Yesterday I shared the mini quilt I made for the Schnitzel and Boo mini quilt swap. I had so much fun making it that most of the time I forgot I also had an unknown partner who was also making a mini quilt just for me.
I was delighted when I did receive my surprise mini as it was this gorgeous envelope quilt. I'm in Australia and my partner, Kristin of gooba designs, is in America so it seemed very fitting to have a text print that has 'beyond the seas' featured.

I had mentioned my favourite fabric line is Carolyn Friedlander's Botanics in the sign up form for the swap. I didn't dare hope I would be lucky enough to be matched with a partner who would use it so well.

The quilting is so lovely I had to get close.


And in black and white you can really see how it finishes off this mini perfectly.


One of the extras I received was this little purse. I am saving it to use for best so it has only been out with me a few times so far. Each time I do use it though I get a lot of comments on how special it is.  I've had it taken from my hands a couple of times so it could be admired up close.


I am so happy I took part in the Schnitzel and Boo mini quilt and I can't wait for the next round.

  1. What a lovely post, thank you tremendously! I am SO overjoyed that you liked your package. I was extremely worried that it would not be good enough. Thank you again for all of the kind words!

Clementine Quilt Along: February Month 2 – Broken Berries

From January 2018 to July 2018 I am joining in the Clementine Quilt Along benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The exclusive charity quilt along pattern results in this gorgeous quilt that measures 70.5″ x 90.5″. 





To take part simply donate $5 to St. Judes for each pattern. Patterns are released on the 25th of each month from January 2018 to July 2018.





February's block is Broken Berries. Each month there are two sizes of the block to make, 12.5" and 20.5" unfinished.





There are a lot of pieces to organise but I've found cutting and prepping the block to be a lot of fun - especially as I was provided with the fabulous Clementine Quilt Along Quilt Kit and Backing Kit featuring Mama's Cottage by Moda Fabrics to take part in the quilt along.




Fat Quarter Shop kits are a wonderful way to join in a quilt along as everything is there ready for you. I have a box just for this quilt that I can pull out and make blocks from each month, no getting sidetracked while di…

Cotton + Steel Divided Basket

Today I have my very first guest blog. The Noodlehead Divided Basket sewalong I am co-hosting over on Instagram starts today and my co-host Peta is here to show you her gorgeous Cotton & Steel basket and share a tutorial on a handle detail she came up with which looks fantastic.

Thanks Kendra for letting me hang out on your blog today. Excited? Well yessiree I am!
How great is Instagram! I love checking through my feed each day to see what the wonderfully talented quilters and sewers have been up to around the globe. Instagram is such an inspirational and generous community and, of course, it’s how I met Kendra and how the Divided Basket Sew Along came about. I don’t have a blog (and really admire people like Kendra who do) but I’d love it if you came and said hi on Instagram, my user name is @shequiltsalot.
Now… onto the Sew Along. I love Anna Graham’s style and patterns. I’ve sewn a couple of items from her tutorials and have found the pattern instructions reall…

Noodlehead Divided Basket Sewalong

I have recently discovered Instagram (I know, I know I'm late) and that hasn't helped with my plan to blog more often but it has led to something quite wonderful.Reading the always wonderful Noodlehead blog on Saturday night I spotted Crafterhours were having a Friday Fiver offer on the Divided Basket pattern. I've longed to make a Divided Basket for quite a while now but I had a self imposed pattern buying ban as I have a million other patterns (at least) to make first. But $5 was too good to miss (craft economics at play here as the pattern is very reasonable even without the discount). So now we come back to the IG connection, I happened to mention I had bought the pattern and asked if anyone had any tips for me before I started or wanted to have a sew along. Well a few messages later my brand new IG friend Peta (we are in a birthday swap together too) suggested we open the sewalong to anyone who wanted to join us and check with Anna Graham if it was ok to use her pat…
