Table Topper and New Wool Project

With some of my stash and leftover fabrics from the apron I made a few days ago I made this table topper.

I have started a new quilt !
It comprises of 9 applique blocks using wool and pieced blocks. Cutting the shapes for the applique blocks is a bit time consuming and fiddly but it will be worth it when it's done.


Since Google Reader's demise I haven't had many comments or picked up any new followers that I can see... perhaps my postings are not too interesting or some setting is preventing people from making comments ???

Gift Quilt and smaller projects

Here is the quilt I mentioned in my last posting being presented to my work colleague on his 60th birthday.  He really liked it and has been using it with the cold nights we are having in Melbourne.

I have made a couple of other projects which I will post a picture when I present it to the recipient (if he allows it ... ).
I like novelty prints and my daughter likes cats, so when I saw this print with cats playing jazz I made her a notebook cover and a tote to carry her trumpet books when she goes for lessons.

I made an apron from novelty print I picked up a few weeks ago.  I could not possibly keep everything I make and the fun is in the making and using up my stash is always a good thing.  I still have a little bit left of the fabric to make something else.

While tidying up my scraps, I found a bunch of music fabrics from previous projects so I made this zippered pouch. 

 And with other scraps I made some gift card holders of slightly different sizes.

I need to load another quilt top (Queen size) on the HQ18 but this weekend I wanted to just play with my stash and make smaller projects...
