Here's something new!

It's about time this quilt saw the light of day - it's been complete for quite a while now and just waiting for its moment with the long arm quilter! Only the other day I realised with a slight sense of horror that it's almost a year since I started it - in May 2011 to be exact. Sherbet Pips was one of those fabric lines that I waited on with great anticipation and chopped into almost as soon as it arrived in my letterbox.

The pattern is one I came up with myself, and I even went the whole hog with the pieced back (which took pretty close to forever, by the way), and which I think makes the quilt as close to a double-sided quilt as you're ever going to get!

It's destined for my little girl's bed, just as soon as the long arm has done its work - which will hopefully be within the next couple of week! I'm really not sure why, but this quilt makes me think of a box of chocolates... Or maybe that's just because it's Easter this weekend. Anyhoo.

If anyone is interested in a tutorial for this pattern, please let me know! It's really quite a simple pattern and very quick to throw together.

In other news... I've been busy Swooning. This is block number 6 and could be my favourite so far. Block number 7 is nearly finished and then we're a cool two blocks away from completion. Hoping to finish up pretty soon so that this can go to the longarmity place together with Miss Pips up there.

Linking up today to Our Creative Spaces and Work-in-Progress Wednesdays.

Happy Easter everybody if you're celebrating. Don't eat too much chocolate :)

PS Have you seen this? I love fabric, but this one has got my heart racing. Very excited - only another 6 months to wait...


  1. I love the sherbet Pips fabric, I love how you have put it together. I need to get a bit more creative than just squares when quilting.

  2. Yes you must finish it off! It's looking gorgeous!

  3. I love both sides of your Pips quilt and your Swoon block is stunning!

  4. Aw - that's such a sweet quilt! I have a pips roll - need to fin the PERFECT pattern to go with that. Still searching ...

  5. Beautiful quilting!! Love the colors - you inspire me. :)
