"Melting Away Quilt" and a {GIVEAWAY}

Riley Bake Designs have released a new book.

"Sew Colorful with Crayola"

"Sew Colourful with Crayola" has 8 fun projects too choose from.

... and I have a Quilt in this book :)
Allow me to officially introduce

"Melting Away"

This is my original quilt, made nearly 2 years ago!
You may notice that the pattern for the book underwent a few minor changes.

The amazing quilting on the original was done by Linda at Ladybug Quilting here in Bendigo.

The Quilt as pictured in the book made its first appearance at Quilt Market 12 months ago and here it is at the entrance of the Riley Bake Booth/Section at Quilt Market.

(I did not make this version though.)

Today I received some happy mail and I get to share with you :)

The wonderful team at Riley Blake in the US have sent me an extra copy of the book and a Crayola Box of 10 FQ's to share with one lucky blog reader. (Pictured Below).

Giveaway is now closed.

To enter you just need to have an Australian Postal Address and leave me a comment below, maybe tell me what you would make with the 10FQ's in the Crayola Box and you will be entered into the draw.

The winner will be drawn at Random, 8pm AEDST, Sunday 15th October 2017
and then contacted by email. 

(Sorry OS followers but the postage is just not feasible on this one).

If you would like to secure your own copy it can be purchased HERE on AMAZON 
and also at The Fat Quarter Shop

Good luck and happy stitching,
Sharon xx


  1. It would only be right to make some travel kits for pencil/crayons and paper inserts. The quilt may be inspiration on the design as it’s awesome!

  2. Sharon you're a superstar!!!! Congratulations! There is a star quilt made from solids that I've been wanting to make for ages so these would be perfect for it

  3. It's a fab quilt Sharon!! I am thinking fussy cut centres to a solid crayola coloured background Economy Blocks...... ❤️

  4. I love your Crayola Quilt. I would like to make a bright unicorn quilt for my granddaughter who is obsessed with unicorns.

  5. Congratulations, love the quilt and I can see one of the three granddaughter also loving it if I were to make one. 10 solid fatquarters would be awesome in any quilt including making your quilt, I love HST but have never made one out of plain solids

  6. This book looks so fun. Your quilt is great! I would love to have a go at making ‘Melting Away’.

  7. Love your quilt. Such beautiful colours. I don't use a lot of solids so this would be a great start to a lovely new quilt. lyn.robyn.smith@gmail.com

  8. I would definitely make something for my darling granddaughter who starts big school next year. Thanks for the opportunity

  9. The melting away quilt looks amazing. That's what I would attempting
