I bought this Echino fabric when I went to the Darling Harbour Craft show, from an Amazing Fabric shop Kelani . You can still buy this fabric from Fabricworm
This Fat Quarter Bundle called Naomi Ito for Nani Iro 2010 Sampler, also came from Fabricworm Its an amazing 100% Cotton Double Gauze. It also has beautiful bronze highlights.... It is so soft and light, I think it will make a beautiful quilt... This is the quilt that im going to sew first.......
Next is for my son. As you can guess he is absolutely OBSESSED with dirtbikes. I found this fabric panel also at Darling Harbour. I have been so busy the past couple months I havent had a chance to sew this one up for him. The poor thing he has spent many night sitting in front of the TV with just the fabric panel draped across him. So i think its probably about time I make it into a quilt!... The Backing fabric?? Well not necessarily MY choice... but if you know Tanner, He goes hunting for spiders in hope one day a spider will BITE him and he will turn into SPIDERMAN!! Not a good thing being as though we live in Australia surrounded by THE most Deadliest Spiders!!
I sourced my Kona Cottons from Fabricworm, Canton Village Quilt Works, and Fabric Depot... some of the colours were a bit tricky...but with these 3 stores I was able to get the lot!
I picked up my 'Sand Castle' Quilt from the Quilters Yesterday....and with my little sister Jordy and my little Indi... they were too quick to snap up a posing opportunity!....
Ill show you some more pics of the quilting when ive finished the binding! xxx

I just love your sand castle quilt! I have plans of my own for your pattern:) I've also been hoarding Nani Iro prints for a long time waiting for inspiration to strike. Ever since I made a quilt from FFA1 I've wanted to make another double gauze one. Can't wait to see what pattern you come up with!ReplyDelete
I have some of the same echino fabric in your 1st photo that I'm going to make the sew liberated schoolhouse tunic from and I've just bought a stash of the spring 2010 collection too! I love it!ReplyDelete
I can't wait to see what you make from all of this! I love that Echino fabric, At the Melbourne Craft show recently I fell in love with the Kelani stand!ReplyDelete
That is so cute about your little fella draping the fabric over him!
What cute models on that quilt! You have been super busy. I'm trying to avoid buying new fabric but quilters like you keep showing fabric that tempts me beyond reason. Sorry family budget. Hello Paypal....ReplyDelete

What different fabric. Your son's picture on his dirt bike reminded me of my grandson. He's about that same age and just won first place in a dirt bike race this weekend. What perfect fabric to make a quilt for these boys.ReplyDelete
