For my Birthday my mum and sister bought me quilting needs, in the form of a ruler, mat and rotary cutter. I have always borrowed mum's, so it is nice now to have my own. So I have been cutting out material, and adding to my square collection. I have nearly enough to sew this one together, just need to cut a couple more squares. I love a quilt as you can keep all your lovely bits of material altogether and look at them in a group, otherwise they are kept in a cupboard and you dont really get to look at them.
This is not going to be very big, I may add multiple boarders to make it bigger.
Here are my new tools, and here are my new bits of prettiness. I went to Wyong to the quilt shop, after what seemed like ages, and many decission changes later, this is what I bought. I think these will make a lovely quilt, I will get some more though. I think I will make it for myself, not Rubes.
I made this cushion cover with old bits of left over floral material.
Another trip to the Salvos, found this cute pig tin tray for $2. I also found a small cupboard for $10, perfect for storage and to keep things out of reach of little miss. Only I didn't take the car it was lovely weather for a walk, tomorrow morning I will head down and get it if it still there. Also off to Long Jetty to visit the op shops down there, so watch this space for any finds.
