childrens quilts

This fabulous number was made by Tina for a little person who loves Mr Men. A mixture of applique, embroidery and some 9 patch blocks.

These quilts were made by the children at a local kindergarten as a fund raiser. A great idea....each child picked pre cut shapes and arranged them and decorated them. A very clever mummy sewed them and then made quilts to auction on the night. Things have progressed since my children were at kinder. I got smelly ( not in a good way) soap from the fundraiser stall and had to bake dozens of cakes!!

Love the Little Mister quilt! I would love to know where I could purchase either fabric or machine embroidery software for the Little Miss and/or Little Mister characters! Are they available only in AU or England? Thanks.... Sally

Sally, Tina just made these up using the images from the books and hand embellished them.

Then I am even more impressed with Tina and her quilt. I've done a little digitizing but not sure if I could manage to do several of the characters. I have the books so maybe I will try to applique some of them. Thanks for the info!

Delilah - Lucy's Journey - Part 1

A fair while ago, when working through the Delilah patterns I thought "yeah... I might just make this".
After a quick brain storm with the Boss Lady/Mum, I decided why not! But it has to be different, we thought because we have no use for 2 quilts that look very similar. So, what could I do? That's when my eyes landed on my always growing stash of Liberty.
March arrived and so did our stock of templates, and off I went...
My, my, my Delilah.

You have brought me to a few firsts so I think some confessions need to me made.

1. I have never pieced a curve.

Nope...  No sir! Not one.
Curves have always scared me. I could never wrap my head around them but the Boss Lady...

She loves them!

I mean... she really LOVES them!

Or maybe she just loves cruel and unusual punishment like this block?!
Just an idea.

Curves conquered.
But wait, there's more (confessions and curves!)

2.  I don't* own an iron.

Ha. Yup!
I managed to get to a few days shy of 30 years old without…

Delilah - Lucy's Journey - Part 3

Hello friends,
Half way into this quilt and with every stitch I fall more and more in love. With each block completed, I drag all my blocks out again and lay them out. I posted this image recently on Instagram (@lucycarsonkingwell) of my 'Design Floor' to gauge where it's all heading and it's looking okay!!

Delilah has been a test - I have learnt many new skills and it is definitely the most technical quilt I have taken on to date... but it's not hard! The templates are fantastic. I swear working with acrylic templates makes it quite challenging to go back to temp-plastic! These templates are ensuring my blocks come out correct, every time.
Month 5 brought us North Star. "Woo hoo. Straight lines!" I hear the masses cheer as they open their mail!
I knew it was time to start focusing on other colours other than pink and aqua. I tend to gravitate towards these two colours because they seem to go with everything to me... especially in the Liberty of London f…

A little eye candy

A very lovely, Susan, e-mailed us her version of JKD Green Tea and Sweet Beans.

We love it!
She made it at a shop in USA called Sewing Party. Amazing!
