Additions to the stash and a new project for Lily

We made an emergency dash (read: any excuse for a visit to a new quit shop!) to Peppermint Stitches at Toowong today - what a gorgeous store! I highly recommend a visit. The woman there gave me a bit of iron-on interfacing to mend the nick in Mum's quilt top (thanks for the advice, Michelle!). So of course I had to say thanks by picking up a few fat quarters! I love the babushka doll print, it will go with the fabric I have left over from Lily's quilt. The pink one is Lily's...

A welcome addition to her stash!

These are Sarah's birthday present to me. She has the same fabrics and she has set me a challenge to make something out of them too. Can't wait!

I picked these up on Sarah's birthday quilt hop on Saturday from the Patchwork Tree at Alderley.

Lily did some sewing on my machine tonight while I started on the final six circles for Mum's quilt. She made me this quilt!


  1. Ooh must go and have a look at the peppermint shop. You are going to need a big box to put all your 'one day fabrics' in!

  2. Hi Melissa

    I'm so enjoying reading your blog.I've just stopped writing my blog (hestersgarden.blogspot.au)so I can spend more time quilting. Like you, I've become obsessed, but I am much less prolific than you and still very much a beginner. I can't even keep my "quilting in the ditch" stitches straight!

    I can't make Jo's quilting bee today due to a toddler with infected tonsils but hope to meet you one day!

  3. Oops...I got my blog address wrong but never mind.
