Fantastic Book

This is Pam and Nicky Lintott's newest book; Two From One Jelly Roll Quilts.
It is FANTASTIC!
Each quilt in the book is made from half a jelly roll (or 20 x 2 1/2 inch strips) plus a little extra yardage. The quilts range in size from 47 x 58 inches to 34 x 44, and there are instructions up the back of the book on how to increase your quilt size. Also up the back of the book is a chart for fabric requirements if you aren't using a jellyroll; and information on calculating the amount of backing required.
Such creative ideas, they takes the worry out of what to do with that jellyroll!

Gorgeous Rural Jardin fabrics....
and 3 sisters fabrics, so pretty...

This week I have been working on finishing a couple of quilts that are partially quilted, Happy Days by Anni Downs and a disappearing nine patch baby quilt. I am hoping to finish these over the weekend, and also get some work done on Matilda Station and Little Macca's Farm.

Sons. They grow up. Too fast.
My eldest is 10 now and he informed me the other day that he longer wants the quilt made from the kit I purchased last year for him (I have two others to make for my other two sons - better get a wriggle on!).
The fabric is Animal Party by Amy Schimler for Robert Kaufman - Amy creates fabulous fabrics for children. Anyway, if anybody is interested in this 'I'm too big for this quilt now' kit; then drop me an email. There is backing for the quilt, the quilt size is 43 x 52 inches; and cost would be $85 including postage within Australia.

It looks like a beautiful book, isn't it fun to read through quilt books, so many new ideas. Kids ... why do they have to grow up?
