Think Big cushion

I bought a copy of the Think Big book by Amy Ellis, who blogs at Amy's Creative Side, a while ago and finally finished this cushion. The book is great. I love that it has a table with what you need for 1 block so you can make any size project. I have also made a table runner from the book which is waiting to be quilted. The fabric in the cushion is the same as my zebra!

Modern Maples place mat

I couldn't resist making more modern maples blocks. I made one place mat but will make more  to match it and this runner occasionally when I feel like making this block.

Dog Gone Cute Quilt Along

Lorna from sew fresh quilts is having a quilt along which is the cutest ever. I cant resist. I have to be involved in this quiltalong. I know there will be 2 weeks in September when I wont be sewing but I think I can still get something done by October. I just love this little block! Click on the button at the side to look!

I decided to go a little wild with the Zebra. I love him but general consensus is that he looks more like a donkey. I think I will add thin borders and turn him into a mini, The block is a freebie from sew fresh quilts. She is doing a quiltalong next month of dog gone quilt which looks great. I wont be able to do it but might make the quilt or maybe a pillow for my nieces.

Pandamonium quilted

I wasn't sure how to quilt this so I looked at quilts made by Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts. I love her quilts and she does a lot of wavy line quilting so that's what I did. I love how it turned out. I am now making a Zebra block. You should see the fabric I am using!

A pillow case

I made this pillow case for a friends daughter. I love how easy and quick this is. I have made one before but used the tutorial by the crafty gemini as I couldn't remember exactly what to do. I love how this pattern isn't directional so the pillowcase looks good on its side. I made a really cute wombat one which I love but the wombats are sideways when the pillow is the right way
