I couldn't go past designing a Teddy Bears Picnic playset. Meet the teddies, Billy and Pip.
This fabric range is perfect for fussy-cutting. I had so much fun choosing my favourite sections to fussy-cut for the picnic blanket blocks.
And what's a picnic without food? These teddies aren't your everyday honey-loving bears. They prefer Fairy Bread and Iced Vo-vos. (for anyone outside Australia, Iced Vo-vos are delicious biscuits. Read about them here)
I've called this pattern "Picnic Time". It will be available from walk-in and online patchwork stores next week.

I had so much fun over the Christmas break using "Wildflower Meadow" to design and create my latest quilt pattern, "Flower Patch".
This pattern uses simple strip piecing for half the blocks. The other blocks are flowers that are worked in invisible machine applique (though the pattern can easily be adapted to your favourite style of applique).
I really love the way this quilt turned out - I think it may be my favourite!
