Sweet Prairie Pouch from "Quilting on the go ... English Paper Piecing"

This sweet zipper pouch is one of the projects in my new book,
"Quilting on the go ... English Paper Piecing".

Sedef from Down Grapevine Lane sent me some of her upcoming range 'Sweet Prairie" to play with and instantly I knew a project from my book that I want to remake as part of the Book Tour.


Such sweet small scale florals. I have teamed it with some gold fleck Cork Fabric and a gold dot background.  I personally love how it has turned out.


The original in the book is made from Tilda fabrics and it is teamed with a Rose Gold Leather.



I have also remade another project using this range but I will save that for another day :)



Thank you for stopping by and don't forget, if you leave a comment on one or all of my Book Tour posts through to 15th August you go into the draw to win a signed copy of my new book.


Happy Stitching,

Time to share some amazing creations ......




Things are starting to heat up now as we are getting into full swing for the Book Tour of my new book,
"Quilting on the Go .... English Paper Piecing"

Time again to share with you some of the amazing creations that have and are coming to life :)

Elise at Elise and Melie has been super busy. 



Elise has made both the Clam Shell Dilly Bag and the Zipper Pouch.


And .......


She has started her very own 'Celestial Star" and a super cute version of the "Be My Bunny Baby Quilt."  Both of these projects have papers kits available for them. They can be purchased from Paper Pieces in the US or local at your favourite Quilt Shop.


 The lovely Jennie from Clover and Violet  has made this adorable placement.


and has plans to make more. How cute are those strawberries.

Ange from A Little Patchwork 
has taken one of the blocks for the "Summer Star Table Runner" 
and turned it into a cute Mini.


Please visit the lovely blogs of the makers participating in the Book Tour. They all create so many amazing, inspiring and beautiful things.

Just incase you don't have access to or use Instagram here are a few more inspiring photos and a glimpse of what is to come.





Wynn is totally new to English Paper Piecing and appears to be enjoying it. Maybe I should say "Welcome to your newest addiction Wynn."  :)

Week one of the book your has kicked off with some amazing sneak peaks of whats to come.


Alex has been playing with "Celestial Star' for the last few months and I am so excited finally see her version come to life. Alex has such a fresh look to her work with her own signature style.



You can find Alex on Instagram by searching @alexouq.


Jess from Paper Pieces in the has also been playing.

Clamshell Dilly Bags from "Quilting on the go...English Paper Piecing" *Giveaway Alert*


Welcome, today is one of my days on the book tour for my new book

"Quilting on the Go ... English Paper Piecing"

and I am excited to share with you my two versions of the

"Strawberries and Cream Clamshell Dilly Bag"




The original was made in soft pinks and white with a touch of bold red, easy to see why I called it "Strawberries and Cream ..."

My new version that I have made is more a "Blueberries" inspired version.


For this one I have chosen to use the new range "Bloomsbury" from Franny and Jane for Moda.
This range is set for release in September in the US.

 

I instantly fell in love with the blue and pops of coral. I tried to tell myself that I wouldn't do any fussy cutting this time but some of the charm squares had perfectly placed/cut prints that they just had to be. :)








I can't pick a favourite. I love both versions :)


Sadly, and despite all my best efforts in the editing process 
there is an error in the lining instructions for this project. 
You can find the correction HERE
The error has been corrected for future reprints.  xx



**GIVEAWAY ALERT **

Would you like to win your own signed copy of my new book?

To go into the random draw please leave a comment on this post, maybe telling me what fabric you would use.  The winner will be announced at the end of the Book Tour on August 15. 

There will be multiple chances to enter, just look for the Giveaway alert at the bottom of my Book Tour Posts.

Open Internationally.

Good luck and Thank you for stopping by.



Hoary Stitching,

Blossom Love Winners and a little more ....


And the Giveaway winners of a copy each of my new 
Blossom Love
pattern are ........


KRISTY and JNW1016

Congratulations ladies. Please check your email inboxes as I have emailed you both this morning :)

Also ........

The lovely Alison at Cotton Factory contacted me after I posted my first Tutorial on the Scan N Cut and has kindly offered a discount for my followers should they be wanting their own Scan N Cut so how could I not share this with you.  

 In full disclosure, I do not benefit in any way from this code. It is a discount that Alison has provided for YOU :)  And again, in full Disclosure. Brother Australia are supporters of "Lilabelle Lane Creations" but all views on their products are my own and are not influenced in any way.

OK with that said :)

The discount code  ........
If you go to visit Miss Alison by clicking on her Green Button below and should a Scan N Cut "fall" into your basket, upon checkout enter the code of "Lilabelle" and you will receive an additional $20 off!  I do believe that this will also work for Lay-by purchases. It is valid for two weeks.



Better go now, it's school holidays here and my girls are still in bed so if I am quick I might get a coffee in before they decide the get up!

Happy stitching and I will be back Wednesday to share one of my book projects with you.

Quilting on the go .... English Paper Piecing - Book Tour

Welcome to the Book Tour for my new book,

"Quilting on the go ..... English Paper Piecing."


I am so excited to be sharing with you over the course of the next few weeks the amazing creations of some very talented makers from all over the world.
Each adding their own spin on various projects from my book.

In my book I share with you my love of English Paper Piecing and Fussy Cutting.
My book will guide you through all the steps of English Paper Piecing, starting with the basics. working your way from the humble hexagon to stars, curves and more.


My dream for this book is that, if you have never English Paper Pieced before, that you pick up your needle and thread and not be scared to give it a go. Learn to enjoy the process and the joy that can come from stitching something with your own hands.

If you are experienced, I hope that you are inspired by the projects within the book, and venture into the journey of fabric selection and create one of my projects in such a way that makes it your own.

There are 16 projects in the book so this is just a snippet :)


"Linen and Lace Fussy Cut Pincushions".

"Strawberry and Cream Clamshell Dilly Bag"                    "Sweet Woodland Bunting"




"Patchwork Block Keeper"


             "Placemats"                                "Summer Star Table Runner"


I am also excited to share that I have partnered with some amazing companies to bring you Full paper and template kits for three of the projects within my book.

Here in Australia, please ask at your local quit shop and they can order any of them in for you. 
(Shop owners please see below)

I also have the support of Paper Pieces in the US for my overseas followers.

Paper Pieces already have Pre-orders up for the three kits :)

First up is "Celestial Star" - the cover quilt, followed by Radiant and Be my Bunny.


 Please note that the paper kits DO NOT contain the pattern. 
You will need to purchase the book for the instructions.


 (Shop owners, these kits are also available wholesale through Paper Pieces, Creative Abundance and Imprezzio)
