Finished Summer Breeze

I'm in looove with this quit right now. So happy how it turns out. The pattern is called Summer Breeze by Melissa Corry at Happy Quilting. Happy Go Lucky fabric line just perfect for this pattern.

I FMQ it on my Bernina 750QE. Some pebbles and swirls. And some square in a square

Five meter backing isn't quite enough as I use some of it for the border. So this is how it turns out!

Dee Dee's quilt

This one goes to Dee Dee.

A Sewing Day

I had a sewing day at my place two Saturdays ago. It was good to catch up with my sewing ladies.
We stitch, sew, knit over coffee, tea and some cake and bikkies..

From left to right. Thelma, Lin, Cheryl and Helen

And with I

We had some show and tell from Thelma. I only took this one picture. We got carried away chatting too much :P I love this fabric line.

And this is what (bacon+eggs+veggies quiche) we had for lunch :)

Some finished stuff

Happy Go Lucky Star quilt

I did some cross hatching in the middle and some stippling FMQ on the borders.

And a couple of Lacy Waves Ponchos

I bought this pattern a few years ago and have knitted many of them. When I feel I need to finish something quick after knitting some lacy shawls using 2ply yarn using 2.75mm needle with a thousand something yards of yarn, I always go back to this poncho. So quick to knit. This poncho is knitted using 80%Bamboo 20%Marino Wool on 8mm circular needles :)

Summer Breeze

Work in progress for this week... Summer Breeze

I'm using leftover Happy Go Lucky fabric line to make Summer Breeze quilt by Melissa Corry at Happy Quilting.

This was my first finished block and I got it a bit wrong. I cut the background strip for in-between the triangles 1/4" smaller than it supposed to be so as you can see it's not quite line up with the two corner triangles :(  but the size of the finished block is correct so I'm keeping this block in!

So far I'm loving it, the quilt pattern and the fabrics :))

Work in progress for this week

My Happy Go Lucky Stars

I got hold of some Bella Solid and... finally able to finish piecing Happy Go Lucky Star quilt. I just love this fabric line, so happy and cute. It is all now pinned and I'm thinking how to FMQ?

I had a bit of a problem attaching the sawtooth borders. I forgot that I was piecing the stars on my old Pfaff and after I bought more of the background fabric to continue, I started piecing sawtooth borders on my new Bernina. I just thought they are all 1/4" foot.... wrong! So I had to do a bit of reverse-sewing and piecing them back together.. voila... I love the sawtooth borders :)

And these are left-overs from the border HSTs... they just look so delicious!
I'm gonna make some more of them :)

Annabelle's quilt

This one is for my daughter, Annabelle. Fabric line is Wrens & Friends by Gina Martin for Moda picked by Annabelle.

It turned out quite big!!

Putting the final borders on, then off to find some backing :))
