Winning in June, Shopping and Thrift finds

Well I had a lovely June, there were a few giveaway's happening and I won about 3 or 4. I have been very remiss in not blogging them sooner but I wanted to wait until I had a couple so here they are.
From left to right
1. A lovely set of Fat Quarters in the Fig & Plum range from the lovely blog Patches Indooroopilly

2. A very cute pincushion from the lovely Erica

3. A very cute little kit of hexagons from Lovely Lorraine

There are also 2 more that I have yet to blog but I am waiting on one to arrive so will post them later.


I won this lovely cushion pattern from the most beautiful blog you have ever seen. Kellie is a very talented Aussie who makes the most lovely patterns and quilts and cushions and I was a lucky winner on her blog, here is what I won. A beautiful cushion pattern. She is a bit of pioneer in easy ways to do lovely applique.

While I was there I decided to order a couple of her current patterns which you can see below. There are also 2 new ones that I have pre-ordered, check out her blog and her shop and I will be checking out her classes if they should ever come to my area.

Then I was a bit naughty and went shopping on Etsy at Fresh Fabrics and bought all these lovely Fat Quarters, there are 20 in total but they were so cheap and lovely and I now own some Anna Maria Horner, Amy Butler and Momo.

And last but not least I always enjoy a good thrift store and I found these lovely items in my local St Vinnies. A nice big bit of fabric that will look sooo cute in a pinafore on Jess in year or 2. a Lovely little girls pattern and a nice big double bed sheet that will look wonderful as a quilt backing.


Oh I nearly forgot. I also love this store: Karaku on Etsy. I bought some lovely Cotton & Linen offcuts and a couple of bits of fabric to use as applique and panels.

Well done! So you got your pattern from Kellie already?

I had better follow up as I haven't heard from her.
