Today is my day on the
I had the absolute pleasure of starting to playing with this new range from Sue Daley back in November last year. When you English Paper Piece you need a LOT of lead time!
I had this design sitting here waiting for the perfect fabric and once these arrived I knew it was the right time to dive in and write my first EPP Pattern - Southern Aurora.
Sue has designed this range with the fussy cutter in mind and has worked the colours to team beautifully with Riley Blakes Basics Range.
I find keeping my secret sewing to myself really hard and during the making of this quilt I did let the occasional pic sneak through to my social media :)
I designed this quit to allow for as much or as little fussy cutting as the maker would wish.
I also designed a NEW SHAPE!
I wanted the hexagons to stand out in their own right so I designed the "Lilabelle Polygon" to frame the 4" Hexagons perfectly.
Here are just some of the examples of the fussy cutting within my Quilt.
This Quilt is pretty special to me. Not only is it my first (yes there are more coming) EPP Pattern, with my own shape, this one also made it Debut at the International Quilt Market in Salt Lake City.
Linda at Ladybug Quilting has quilted this one for me.
Linda is very clever at choosing a design that works with the quilt.
This design gives Souther Aurora a nice flow and movement.
The pattern for Southern Aurora can be purchased with the templates and papers.
Ask at your Local Quilt Shop or visit some of the stockists that I have listed on my stockets page HERE. If you are a retail outlet that would like my Wholesale details please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I also have it available as a stand alone hard copy pattern in my ETSY Store HERE.
(No papers and Templates)
These photos were taken here in Bendigo before my quilt left for its adventure at Quilt Market.
If you are in the Ballarat area, my quilt is currently hanging at Cotton Factory and if you are in Queensland it will be on show on the 22nd and 23rd October in Roma and the following weekend at the Gympie Show. Just look for Janeene at the stand for "Fabric Patch".
