Sunday Crafternoon WIP

wip, originally uploaded by drewzel.

I know, I said I’m over this craft blogging for a bit, but you want to see this, right? For ages I’ve been hoarding fabric from Aunty Cookie and Lara Cameron. Last week I ordered some from Hollabee too, so I thought I’ll make something for ME with it all. So I just joined sections together to make a throw for the couch. After Easter I’ll have to get some quilt backing and finish it off…but I’m rather pleased with it. It’s hard to go wrong with such beautiful fabric!

    That’s really beautiful. I think the best type of quilt is one that is thrown together with pieces of fabric that you love.

    Hey Steph,
    It looks great so far! I like your mix of local girls fabric too.
    Hope to see you at brown owls soon.

    That is coming out great! I really want to make a quilt. I love all of your fabric choices and patterns. Lucky couch!

    About 10 minutes after I took the pic, the cat came and sat on top of the quilt and proceeded to make pudding. That’s why I keep having to make couch throws, Sebby keeps claiming all the blankies in the place. :)

    Thanks for the nice comments peeps, there’s links to the fabric makers blogs in my sidebar if you want to check out their stuff.

    This looks great. What a nice way to use up some special hoarded fabrics!

    (and thanks for your comment on my blog- I’m not *that* bad with the shyness thing- more when I’m rocking up to a group of new people, that sort of thing… I would LOVE to go to Brown Owls, but it’s hard to get there. My partner does shift night work, and doesn’t always know when. (and there are three small people to look after) It’s so bloody hard to commit to anything. When the next casual spots come up, I will see if he’s working or not, and will try to come.:o) )

    maybe come to the mother’s day one on may 3rd…you can bring the kidlets (if they’re over 6 though.) ??
    Shift work is a pain, I remember when I used to do it I had to organise myself from fortnight to fortnight as i couldn’t do anything further ahead because I had to wait for the roster to come out. Bah!
    Not sure which bit o’ Melbourne you’re in…we should “do” coffee :P

    Definitely glad to see this. Andy hey, you’ve given me an idea for a project to put some of my newly collected fabrics that I just don’t want to cut into right now.

    It’s very very nice! Great fabrics, and you’ve put them together really well. Thanks!
