it's hot

and i'm working on quilt tops and trying to keep a baby happy.

pink & green quilt top

blues & purples

ps. i'm dying to do a maesey update but her 6 month "half birthday" is right around the corner so i'll save it till then. suffice it to say, for now, that she is heaps of fun these days!


  1. This may be a dumb question.. But I've been a lurker forever now and I am bad at commenting.. I just wanted to say that I absolutely LOVE your quilts. I was wondering if your sell your quilts??

    We are having our first baby, a girl, in early May and I just LOVE that pink quilt pictured above. It is beautiful and so perfect! You do such a wonderful job :)

  2. Love both of them.. cant wait to see the final result. I like the little square with animals on it in the pink one PS... today is Monday, January 19 (your entry say Tuesday, January 20)... thought you would like to know!!!!!!

  3. thanks ladies!

    candace, congrats on the upcoming baby! i do indeed sell my quilts. i've just had to raise my prices a wee bit as they take me so long to make, and if i want to keep making them i need to justify the time. they were $100 USD/$120 AUD and now are $120 USD/$150 AUD for the cot size. i'll post finished pics of this pink & green one in the next couple of days, let me know if you'd like buy it for your wee one : )

    monica, i live in australia so it actually IS tuesday here - weird, hey? it always seems like time travel when i fly between canada and australia, you miss a day here, gain a day there...

  4. It is hot here today. For once I am glad to be at work in air conditioning and not in my 'sunroom' on the sewing machine!

  5. they're both really lovely and I'm sure will be enjoyed by the lucky little ones who get to use them.

    I love the fabric in the first picture. Is it a charm pack?

  9. imaginethatquilts, no, just a chosen few from my overflowing fabric collection : ) i decided to work with pinks and greens this time after making a custom fleur in these colours, they just work so well together!

  10. I love your quilt tops, they are looking beautiful. Can't wait to hear about Mae's update!

    that pink and green quilt is perfect, i hope you make some more like it!

  12. i love the fabrics in both quilts, (& i love your blog too), i've got a little girl born just after Mae, and it's lovey to see how she's doing, i'm also very jealous of your weather - it's so gloomy over this side of the world. would also love to know when/if any more little fleurs are going to turn up in your shop

  13. funny you should mention fleurs, kelly, i was planning on working on some today! i should have some available in a week or two. now i'm off to visit your blog to sneak a peek at your baby girl : ) love babies.

    These quilts are lovely - so jealous. I have actually been wanting to make a basic machine-stitched quilt using a similar grid pattern. Do you know of any web pages/tutorials that give simple instructions on how to do this (I have basic sewing skills)?
    Love the blog,

  15. sorry, steph, i can't think of any off the top of my head but a quick google search might help? i bought a couple of books to ease myself into quilting as i thought it was going to be much harder than it is - i did a quick review of them here http://onegirldesignwrks.blogspot.com/2007/08/mini-book-review.html. good luck, it's super addictive!!
