The Sunday Wrap 2 (……but on Monday)

This Sunday Wrap 2 on Monday, posted a day late….  ooops is full of colourful rainbows and fabric here !!  Michael Millers Glitz, more Kona Cotton Solids from Robert Kaufman – and I have sourced an online fabric store Clairs Fabrics that stock the whole range !!  Even more dangerous than this is, Clair actually lives only about 10 minutes from here !!

Quilts wrapped and sent with love

“Foxy with Style”

This Quilt was made with a lot of love and thought to the recipient – shhhh!  she/he still hasn’t received it, so I can’t say too much.  I just love using Elizabeth Hartman’s Fancy Fox pattern, and have promised my niece in the school holidays to help her make a cushion from this pattern.  Each Fabric gives the fox their own personality.  The Woodlands Fabric is a Riley Blake Print, and the striped binding is just perfect.

“Geometric Cowboys”

Geometric Cowboys is a custom made Cot Quilt (50×40″) , that filled the brief – fun, neutral tones, modern and cowboys !!

The Equilateral Triangles really POP in these neutral hues and the Cowboy Fabric on the back is Vintage with a modern fun feel !!  I have quilted this Quilt using 1 1/2″ straight lines which is stunning.As you can see I have used the same striped binding on this quilt as “Foxy with Style”

“Whale of a Time”

This Quilt top is made using Elizabeth Hartman’s Preppy the Whale Pattern.  This Cot Quilt will be 40×50″, an ideal size for a play mat, cot quilt or comforter.  I love the effect of the Rainbow Whales and the Smile it brings to everyone who has seen it !  This is an easy pattern to follow.  To make the 12×4 1/2″ block the pieces are small and fiddly but the result is well worth it  – all smiles here !

The Sunday Wrap 2 includes the creation of more Quilt blocks:

“Three in One” Heart Block

This is my first I am creating a pattern for !  It needs some tweaking – but it is a stunning 12 1/2″ block.  I will let you know when I release the pattern.

“Ribbon Star Block”

I love this block – as the contrast of the two colours (light and dark tones)  makes the impression of a gentle ribbon wrapping around the star – very clever !

Ripple Block

This block is part of the Bee Hive series by Blossom Heart Quilts.  The block itself is by Gnome Angel.  The centre square was initially negative space and I just had to see what it looked like with a fussy cut square in the centre !

This Sunday Wrap 2 shows just some of the work created by Sewn by Leanne.

From Friday 29th May to 31st May my Feather Treasures Quilt will be shown at the Modern Quilt Show in Kiama – my first quilt show – extremely exciting !!!
