Twinkling Stars

My Twinkle quilt has been finished for a few months. Today I took it outside for a few photos.

It came as a kit from the Fig Tree Club at Patchworks Plus.

 and was made from a Breakfast at Tiffany's jelly roll ...

and lots of Fig Tree cream.

 I really like the combination of spots and florals.

Leanne at Esme's did the lovely all-over quilting. 

For a different look, I hung the quilt over the deck. Borders and binding are sometimes tricky to photograph so I was pleased with how they were highlighted. 

This would have to be my favourite picture from today. Although Oliver appears to be looking at the quilt, he is actually behind it!

This afternoon I worked on some Christmas swap projects. Sorry I can't share any pictures ... the recipients read my blog so there can be no 'sneaky peeks'!

All Wrapped Up

The last couple of weeks I've been piecing this quilt top.

 The fabric for the presents is Flurry by Kate Spain.

 I used a white fabric with little red dots for the sashings. It is from a collection called Sweet Shoppe by Michelle D'Amore for Benartex. I might just be collecting this range so look out for it in future projects.
 The pattern is called All Wrapped Up and can be found here in the Free Patterns section of Moda's website. 
Below are a few of my favourite blocks.


Today I plan to sew on the borders ... it is a public holiday in northern Tasmania and the weather is lovely. Hope you have a good Monday wherever you are.
