Blogger's Choice

This took ages but it was fun.  A blogger's bundle opportunity courtesy of The Fat Quarter Shop and Laura at Quokka Quilts- click to find out more.
On Christmas day as my mum and sister unwrapped their pillows from me, my brother was a little put out that there was none for him (he did have a very nice and requested present).  He had a pillow last year but he was rather taken by the Walk in the Woods pillow.  As a consolation I told him he could have something else. He suggested something inspired by the film 'The Life Aquatic'. I haven't seen this but the trailer alone set my mind whirring.  This bundle is selected for this project, a hypothetical quilt for Jamie.  I love the combination, hours spent searching through colours and themes and my mouse hand is jiggered.  Would love to make it. 
Go enter!  It is a very interesting creative exercise.

  9. Oooh, Going Coastal is one of my favorite lines from this year...you must be sure to check out the crabby prints tho! The crabs are in your bottlecaps but they are kind of creepy / friendly / wonderful on their own!

  10. What a lovely bundle. In a funny coincidence, my husband and I are in the process of redoing our staircase and just today he pointed out that we choose a Steve Zissou color palate. It must be very now. I'll be posting photos on my blog as soon as the project is done.
