January's completed projects

Aren't holidays wonderful? I have spent part of January organising and preparing several projects so I can just pick them up during the year and work on them. In this way, I am hoping to keep hold of my sanity and actually complete several of the ones from the list at the side.

So far this year, I have completed:

A bag for Alana

I was given a beautiful blue and yellow bag for my birthday by my angel, Sue Daly. Alana was very impressed with it, and Sue kindly sent me the link to the pattern. I used the fabrics Alana is using in her Little Macca's quilt, and were both very pleased with the end result. These bags hold an amazing amount of goodies!

Next I made three little gift bags, but gave two away before I could photograph them! Here is the one still to be given...... you'd never work out what her favourite colour is, would you?

The third item completed was the mystery quilt top I made last Friday. I am counting quilt tops as completed because I need to save up for them to be quilted, and can add the binding quite quickly once they are quilted. The construction of the actual top is what is challenging for me, due to the time constraints of working full time.

All four quilts made on the day were effective and were laid out in different ways. It was an enjoyable activity to undertake!

(Liam always comes in useful when I need to photograph quilts!)

Do you have this fabric for sale?

I am supposed to be using this fabric next Friday to make a mystery quilt with some special friends, but because I had to be difficult and choose a directional fabric, I need to cut another 2 - 9" half square triangles.

The fabric is:Momoyama by Sentimental Studios for Moda, pattern # 15711.

If you live in Australia (due to the pressures of time!) and have this fabric for sale, please contact me .

Thanks for your help

The Winner Is........

Hello this is Liam.

I have decided that all of your entries were great and all were special for their own reasons so I decided that it was unfair to only give one prize away. So if you could email my mum via her profile with your snail mail address I will send you off something each. Thank you for entering i hope you enjoy your prizes.
