busy weekend and a new baby

Spent the weekend visiting the guilds. Saturday, I was off to The Bay Quilters guild to hear Jinny Beyer speak and have a small stand to share some of our new favourite products with the ladies. Then on Sunday, Lucy and I were off to South Melbourne to participate in the Sit and Sew Day with the Melbourne Modern Quilt Guild. Lots of friendly faces at this one and lots of creativity!

The lovely Cathy who was working on The Circle Game BOM.

Cathy is piecing her BOM using the paper piecing method. Very clever!

A beautiful pile of spots.

Very sophisticated quilt - lovely soft colours!

Love the red gloves on this quilt.

I've started my doll quilt for the Down Under Doll Quilt Swap... here's a sneak peek!

AND... I've got a new baby (don't tell Amitie Girl). Yes! It's very exciting (actually, Amitie girl knows... and she's pretty excited too!)
Yes I have given birth to a Nikon D90!

It's been out of the box once, and it's very pretty! The battery is charging so I will do a post later in the week about my babies first steps.

 To Finish, I'd like to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY MEG. 29 years ago I gave birth to my first baby. I hope today is full of smiles of you Meggie.

Oh I'm so jealous. I would love to have a camera like that. I only have a point & shoot which does a great job but it's limited. Lovely quilts.

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!
