Sweet tooth

I've decided this year that I'll learn how to quilt.  I know it's a dangerous hobby but I would like to say I've at least made one proper quilt in my life time and since Craftsy are doing a free course called The Craftsy Block of the Month, there's video tutorials and you can email for help and so since I don't have much in the way of fat quarters and I'm always game for a giveaway I'm entering Quokka Quilts competition with the Fat Quarter Shop.  So I've built a mosaic of pretty fabrics and hope I win it as it'll be a super sweet tooth quilt!

  1. Ooooh great news!! Get yourself on Brit Quilt too... there's always people happy to help answer questions, fix things, etc on there

  2. If your quilt is as cute as your mosaic it will be amazing! x

  3. Each time I get to the aubergine (that's an eggplant for any American readers) I keep thinking, is that the odd one out part of the competition?!! I'm liking your sweet selection!

    The crafty quilt class should be a great intro to different quilting styles, a bit like the sampler quilts people used to make way ack when ... and probably still do! I can't wait to try the different styles - I've seen some at quilt shows and the classics can still look fantastic!

  4. Thanks Sarah, I'll have a look!

    Thank you Charlotte, I really hope I win! hehe!

    Giles, only you could point that out! It is the odd one out as it's not as sweet as the others! hehe!

    Here's to quilting! Cheers!

  5. That's on my list to learn this year too! That and machine sewing. Your garments are very inspiring :)

  6. Also, sorry should have posted using my real name... xx Medha
