Visit to Calico Cat, Honolulu.

Currently in Hawaii playing field hockey in the world golden oldies tournament.

But, I did manage to find time to go to the quilt shop Calico Cat on Koko Head Ave, Honolulu. Met the lovely store owner Carol who was very helpful. 

Also managed to buy some beautiful fabric... He he 

Bought some kaffe fassett and Michael miller fabric... For some new projects.... And

Some Valerie Wells fabric to make a couple of dresses...
If your ever on the island of Oahu in Hawaii then you need to visit Carol..

My new applique butterfly quilt

From feedback when I was at the Canberra craft show early in August, I had a number of requests to make a butterfly quilt. Well I have had the butterflies drawn for quite some time, just working out how to put them on a quilt. 

I have even made one of my butterfly patterns for cushions for my daughter and some of her friends.

Anywho, I have finally designed the background and made the first butterfly. I am going to use a selection of 1930's fabric. I am a little excited!!! Just love this process. 

A small section of the background.

My 1930's fabric for the butterflies. Hope you will like it.
