WIP Wednesday . . . on Saturday ; )

I finished off this little quilt for the shop this week. It is part of my new range called 'Take-a-long' quilts. It measures approximately 85cm x 100cm and easily folds up into a cute little bag. Great to take-a-long on play dates or to the park.

I also picked up some patterns to make myself some clothes for summer. I like all these styles of tops but very rarely wear a skirt so thought I might be brave this summer and make myself a skirt similar to the 'tilda' skirts I make for the shop as I have been getting a lot of request at the markets and online to make them in ladies sizes . . . hmmm, maybe - stay tuned for that one!

A sneak peak at the material I have picked out to use for the EB Bag Swap that is currently happening. The fabric on the left is for the outer and is a mid-weight furnishing type fabric which I hope will turn out lovely for the bag outer. I really need to get started on this - only 3 weeks left til opening day!

And a new quilt in progress. The three panels of strips already sewn together are stacked coins, with a creamy coloured homespun for the sashing and the green/orange/purple fabric for the backing. The binding I was going to use before I bought the backing is pink so may need to use something else now as I am not sure if this will go or clash with the backing.

And finally a pic of our little kiddies - it is so impossible to get a pic of them together! Miss M is always the frowner!


  1. Congrats on the new blog Anna - have loaded you into bloglines so I don't miss any news!

  2. Love the quilt, the size is a great idea! I have the pattern in the middle as well, there were a few of us on EB that were making them last year, I haven't gotten around to it just yet though!

  3. Nice new blog!
    I must admit, for a while there I considered having separate blogs, but happy I stuck with the one.
    Loving those Simplicity patterns. Oh dear, what if they were to accidentally fall into my basket next time I went shopping :-)

  4. Lovely new blog and lovely little quilt! I especially love the back, it is just so sweet.
