I received this pic recently form Nancy Arseneault with her version of my Mariners centre. WOW!
The applique is from a design by Erin Russek and the quilting is wonderful. Thanks Nancy. Check out her other quilts here.
Margaret from Gerringong was in a recent class for the Basic mariners Compass and made hers into a cutting board holder - great idea.

She also made the Friendship Ring quilt - beautiful combination of colours.

Annette from the Penrith Patchwork class has been sewing this Jacobean Star for a while but it was worth the wait! Just some borders to go.

 And Susie is so excited to see hers coming together too.
Check this stunner out - and it's mine! I recently won a giveaway on Martha's blog and if you know me you'll know how much I love vintage linen. Martha has made this from a cross-stitched tablecloth. Now I just need a dress from to put it on. There's no way I could ever wear it and get it dirty!
Thanks again Martha - can't wait to see it.

I've recently added five new PDF patterns of some of my best selling quilts to my Etsy shop. Instant download so you can get started sewing right away. Go on over and check them out.

Bloggers Quilt Festival

It's time again for the Bloggers Quilt Festival organised by Amy at Amy's Creative Side.
This is my entry in the Scrap Quilt category - Hatchet.
It's a remake of an old block reminiscent of the double wedding ring design but my curves are appliqued. Too easy.

As you can see it uses lots and lots of scraps - can't remember how many diamonds are in that sashing but it's in the hundreds!
The block measures 17" and the whole quilt is 71" square.
Thanks Amy for organising another great festival - have a look here at all the scrap quilt entries then the other entries in lots of different categories.
