Cheerio Quilt

Whoops. I did finish her two weeks ago, but I've been swamped since then. But I'm so pleased with how she turned out.

I used an aqua print for the back. And of course red scallops for the binding. 

Might need to hang her on my bedroom wall!

Sales and New Products at Bella's Patchwork

It's been a busy time at Bella's Patchwork, with Quilt Market followed closely by Australian Quilt Market. There are so many great new fabrics and notions in the shop, and some great sales too.

First for the new stuff.

There's Gardenvale by Jen Kingwell

Fresh Cut by Basic Grey.

Somerset and Aloha Girl from Fig Tree Quilts.

Lots of gorgeous bundles from Art Gallery Fabrics.

And some from Dashwood Studios too.

And the new multi-coloured Clover Wonder Clips.

And Aurifil! We have a few designer sets like Wildflower Meadow from Melly & Me, and some basics as well.

Then there's the sale stuff.

Martinique from 3 Sisters is now just $11 a metre.

And Rainy Days and Mondays from Riley Blake is $13 a metre. These are wholesale prices!

Night Sky in Paradiso

This gorgeous bundle of Paradiso has been sitting by my desk for a few weeks now, while I've contemplated just which pattern will work perfectly with it. I put it to the vote on Instagram and Facebook, and finally decided on Night Sky.

I split the bundle out into its colour-ways.Then decided on which prints for the large stars.

And for the little stars (that lovely stack at the back).

I can't wait to see how it all comes together!

Binding Cheerio

I made the most of being on sick leave and got my Cheerio quilt basted and quilted.

Just need to finish the binding.

My next project which I'm really looking forward to is going to be with Kate Spain's Paradiso. Pink are blue are a winner for me. Then I'll probably head towards Horizon unless something else catches my eye before then.
