Scrappyluscious Stars - Bloggers Quilt Festival


Introducing Scrappyluscious Stars

This quilt has been finished for quite a while but I haven't shared it on my blog because it's been waiting for a special photo shoot.  

I knew I wanted a location that was colourful and fun

somewhere a bit different 

A spot that would have a Sydney vibe.

I knew the perfect place...

So we jumped on a ferry which took us across Sydney Harbour.

and soon arrived at Luna Park

a place of bright colours and a carnival atmosphere. 

I love how the big face is wearing a big pointy compass hat. It matches the points of the Scrappyluscious Stars.

The clowns seemed happy to see such a festive quilt. 

And these guys looked as though they wanted to run off with it. 

Magic Mirrors!


A bit of merry-go-round glamour.


Scrappyluscious binding.

So that's it ladies and gentlemen, Scrappyluscious Stars

A quilt full of colourful adventures!!!



Fabrics: All colourful fabrics are from different SisBoom ranges designed by Jennifer Paganelli combined with a mix of different white fabrics. 
Pieced: Me!
Longarm Quilted: By Tanya Croft , She used a fun all over swirly pattern. 
Size: 64 x 64 inches
Quilt Festival Category : Scrappy Quilt

  63. I'm plodding along, having a very busy life at the moment though, so not much progress. Just thought to let you know I absolutely LOVE your denim quilts and the fun ideas you come up with regarding them, I've only made cosmetic bags from denim, with lots of lace.

    This post's quilt is another winner and the photo shoot is both wonderful and hilarious. Same as the Neon Bounce, just WOW.
