Quilts, quilts and quilts.

I promised a blog post about the quilts on show at Houston Market 2012, but first a little update on the Charity Quilt.

This post is going up a little later than I hoped but life, as always, is chaotic. I made it back to Melbourne after Houston and it seems I was just in time to catch my flight to Abu Dhabi to visit my husband. I'll be spending the time there working on new patterns for Jen Kingwell Designs.

The Charity Quilt has been finished, and looks amazing. Thank you to Jenny Carmichael the Bayside Quilter for quilting it for us, and also to Judy Newman who did the binding.
The center star was done by me but the other blocks were donated by our lovely customers and followers. The blocks were all beautiful. Thank you so, so much for getting behind us and supporting such a great cause.

Sad to be missing out on such a fantastic night!

Now, quilts from the quilt show. These are just some of the many quilts that were on display in Houston. Please note: None of this is my work. Hopefully I have copied all the right information about each quilt.
Enjoy the show!

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.
PERFECT!
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 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!
