These creatures below are not quokkas. These are highly trained quiltdogs. Also known as Melody and Scarlett.
They take their work very seriously as you can see. (The tutorial/pattern for that bag is on my blog but be warned, it's NOT a normal pattern). When I'm not being disrupted by the Quiltdogs, I sew on a Bernina 820 and a HandiQuilter Sweet 16. I love extreme free-motion quilting, appliqué, making bags, and all things modern quilt related. I am President of the Perth Modern Quilt Guild and I run Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday (which Lee inspired) with MR from QuiltMatters.
Works in Progress
On the design wall
I've been slightly obsessed with the Quick Curve Ruler lately, so this is on the design wall in pieces. I've fallen in love with Kaufman printed quilter's linen, which is the grey background. The other bits in there are some Simply Color, Kate Spain, Tula Pink and Birch organics, which is a fairly good indication of my fabric loves.
On the quilting tableI have two dinosaur pillows in progress for an old school-mate's children who drew the dinosaurs themselves. This pillow is now finished, the other (in the inverse colour scheme) is just waiting for me to finish the quilting before being turned into a pillow .
I also have a quick little charm quilt (Sunnyside by Kate Spain) pinned and ready to be quilted. I've been a bit overwhelmed by green recently so looking forward to quilting something warmer!
I've also got a monster-sized Mondrian-inspired quilt which I am bashing away at bit by bit using templates and the S16.
Thanks to Lee for having me here! I'm looking forward to seeing what you link up!
