Saw this on Shabby Fabrics You Tube last year and didn't have time to make one so with Christmas fast approaching again decide to give it a go. Was easy to make little messy with the glue but if careful you should have no worries.
You will need to make sure your rotor cutter is sharp. Quick project. Am planing on making another three for next year in different colour way.

Was planing a landscape quilt but began to overthink how l was going to accomplish this task.
So instead decided to make a pillow/cushion cover for his bed and come up with another quilt, in time.
Maybe a New York Beauty, as that quilt reminds me of tie-dye.
Only 5 month late, not bad.
I am sure he is going to love it as he did have some input.
He will take ownership on Friday when he returns from Sydney.
Now for son No.4's quilt only 2 years.

Then returned to Toowoomba along the coast road as far as Bundaberg then south west to GinGin, and eventually home again. Taking a total of 35 days.
The ship also managed to get into conflict island which is an island made up as a resort, where no one lives. It sole purpose at the moment is to bring in the cruise ships. It is owned by an Englishman who also owns 21 other islands.

All fabric from same range which was purchased a few years back now.
When l return from this trip planning on making matching passport holder, journal cover and overnight bag. Also in the throws of making a sun hat.
Needed fabric that stands out and that not many others passengers hopefully will have.

Made the rabbit first as l wanted to try out the pattern before l purchase more fabric for my bear. Rabbit still needs his nose and will probably give him away on our cruise, with the community quilts when we arrive in PNG.
Am also planning on making up a few little gift bags with coloring books notepads and assorted pencils.

I had spent weeks looking for a queen size bed frame only to be told by dear hubby that a queen will not fit the space with bed side tables.
So as l said prior came across this frame and only asking $80. but required a lot of work and to my surprise when we went to have a look, the lady was in the process of moving out and said we could take it for free. "BONUS".
Now l understand why hubby dislikes painting.
Not one drop of paint on me or my clothes.
Plan on having the bed room made up for my visits, will be girly and pretty with my new quilt and Leanne Beasley wall quilt, (project not started as yet).
As this house is set up for my boys so that they do not have to travel to work and back from Brissy every day, ( 2 hours each way). They are only 40 mins by train, 25 mins by car, depending on traffic.
