Mini Flower Pin Cushion FREE Tutorial

On a trip to America last year I cam across a cute little pin cushion at the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky. The quilts were also Amazing!!

Anywho......, as you would know I always make presents for my sewing friends and I made some of these super cute pin cushions. They are used as a little travelling pin cushion and fit in the top of your cotton reel..... I just love them!

Whilst working with my good friend Val and her shop My Patch Fabrics, at the Rosehill Stitches and Craft Show last week I also taught these at make and take classes. The ladies had so much fun making them... and let me tell you every person I had in the classes (about 50 people all up) finished their project in a 1 hour class. Val also has some great little kits for sale.

So click on the link for my FREE tutorial for the pin cushions. Spread the love and give them to your beautiful sewing friends.

Happy Sewing

Quiltmania Projects - My Owl Love Quilt and My Kimono Blossom Quilt

I have been very busy over the last couple of months trying to finish projects and of  I was very lucky to be requested to design two quilts for the Quiltmania Kids Issue 2015.

I met the girls at Houston Quilt Market in October 2014 and they requested two quilts with inspiration from My Owl Quilt and My Kimono Girls Quilt. Okay so I was very excited and then I realised I had to get my act together and design and complete two quilts to be sent to France. (yep... that's right)

So keep a look out for the magazine... I am very happy with my design.... here is a sneak peak... Hope you like them!

Happy Sewing,

My two owl's in My Owl Love quilt were made from the Cotton + Steel Basics range..... I just love the brightness.

My kimono girl in My Kimono Blossom Quilt was made from the Amy Butler Hapi range.
