Modernising A Classic

I'm pleased to announce I think I've found my blogging powers!  After taking 'blogging without obligation' to a new level, I have heaps to write about!  I've been very busy completing some quilts and working on some others on my very extensive long list on my sidebar.  I also seem to have started a couple of new quilts!

I'm happy to share these photos taken at a recent Sunday sewing day with some friends.

We made Lisa Stipes Easy Peasy Felicity quilt, it's a lovely variation on a rail fence pattern.  I love rail fence quilts, and by varying the widths of the strips she's modernised this traditional pattern.  It's a free pattern on the quilt pattern resource site at Riley Blake, Cutting Corners.  They have some wonderful free patterns there!

This quilt is Chris's.  She made a Modrian inspired quilt.

Denise's quilt has the blocks laid out with the colours in diagonal lines.  The aqua, green and grey is such a lovely colour scheme and would look great in a contemporary home, draped on a lounge.

Diane used these cheerful fabrics.  This is a such a pretty quilt.


I made my quilt using some hoarded Tea Garden fabric by Dena Designs.  It's a riot of gorgeous rich colours, I'm going to give it to my daughter for her lounge room.


  1. Love all the different colour ways, what a great pattern, very effective.

  2. Wow, they all look fantastic, I think my favourite is yours, its a beautiful mix of fabrics

  3. They all look fantastic think I like your version at the end the best.
