Gosh!! I'm so blown away by the wonderful response for my Sew Mama Sew Giveaway!! It's still open until Saturday 14th Dec 5pm Aussie Time so if you've still got time to join the fun in my previous post. It's been so fun reading through all the comments and lots of great suggestions for the little lady's name. A huge welcome to the new followers of Blue Mountain Daisy. I hope you enjoy visiting.
Besides entering giveaways I've been sewing hexagons. Pat Sloan is making a birthday quilt and has requested blocks to include red and aqua. I know she admired my Sis Boom hexy blocks in the past so I thought I'd go for a similar style. When it came to the background I couldn't decide which red fabric to use so I went for a combo, and it's sewn off center so as not to be too predictable.
The blocks can be any size so I've left a lot of fabric around the edges that can be trimmed to what ever size is needed in it's placement in the quilt.
I couldn't help making another little one when I came across letter fabric and the happy birthday teddy bear was the perfect center. Once again I left lots of trimming fabric.
I've also been labelling quilts! Here's the label I made for Pockets Full of Posies.
I've always felt my labels were a bit boring. It takes the fun out of labelling quilts so it's a job I always put off and only label them when I really have to.
That was until now- I think I've really hit on a Rachaeldaisy label style with these hand drawn flowers.
I simply draw them with texta on paper.
Then print them onto printable fabric sheets.
It's fun coming up with designs that suit each quilt. I might even go back and redo the labels on some of my older quilts.
Last but not least, I'd like to introduce Mr King Parrot who comes to visit us sometimes.
He sits on our outside table and chirps about his adventures in the tree tops.
Usually he flies away if I go to get my camera but this day I happened to have my camera handy and managed to get some photos.
Fluoro orange and green , now there's some colour inspiration!!
