And the winner is........

My apologies for the delay on picking the winner as I'm sure you are all dying to get a copy of this book.

I set my girls to the task of cutting up the names and putting them in a bowl. (That's you out the back Ali.)


And with a bit of a swish around...


Lucinda pulled out a name.


But who is it?


The lovely Laura Jay of course - congratulations!!

Email me your address Ms LJ and I'll get the book on its way to you - I hope the mail from Australia to Canada is a little faster than the reverse!

Guess What.....

Sometime in 2008 I had a mini quilt design accepted for a Lark publication called Pretty Little Mini Quilts.

It seemed like forever to wait until 2010 for it to be published but guess what has just arrived.............


I am so excited and proud to be in one of these gorgeous little books as they are just lovely. The front section is filled with all sorts of fabulous quilt making information and then there are pages and pages of fabulous little quilts. From embroidery to applique, machine to hand sewn and traditional to abstract, there is something for everyone.

Here's mine.

Pretty Little Mini Quilts

And I'm in fine company. This one's from the very talented Kate from Two Little Banshees. I think it would make a great quilt for a baby given its slightly larger size.

Mrs Banshee's quilt!

And this one is from a fave read of mine Beki from artsy-crafty babe.

Artsy Crafty Babe

This is one of my favourites in the book but of course I have many!

My fave Pretty Little Mini Quilt

So simple and sweet.

And just because I know so many of you enjoy making these gorgeous little quilts I have one to GIVE AWAY. So leave me a comment and I will pick a name Sunday 21st March.

Doll Quilt Swap reveal time again!

Finally finished my quilt for the 8th round of my very favourite swap - the Doll Quilt Swap.

I absolutely LOVE this quilt and it was loads of fun to make too.


I think there will be more dresden plates appearing soon!


It is now flying to its new home far, far away and hopefully that person will love it as much as I do.

DQS8 Finished

Go and have a look at all the stunning quilts in this round. Seriously these just get better and better every swap.

And for all those who like making doll quilts, or any quilt for that matter I will have something special for you in the next couple of days so look out! And yes it does include the word 'giveaway'!!

Oh and did you notice that I have now completed two of those projects I had in my post the other week. That's not bad really. And the third I should be able to finish tomorrow so maybe you will even see that here soon!
