Sunrise Joy …. a secret I had to keep is here!

sewnbyleanne_sunrisejoy_secret3

I have a secret to share…

Shh……  Yes I have been anxiously awaiting this day for six months, but it has finely arrived !!

sewnbyleanne_sunrisejoy_secret1

My first pattern Sunrise Joy is PUBLISHED !!!   WOW !!  Can you tell I’m just a tad excited?  Homespun – A leading Quilting/ Craft magazine published my quilt pattern – wow – ok I’m a little over excited !!

sewnbyleanne_sunrisejoy_secret2

It certainly was hard to contain a secret like this for six months !!  Sunrise Joy is a 70×50 (180x130cm) pieced quilt that I designed and created last year !  It is such a happy and bright quilt – it still makes me smile when I see it :-).

sewnbyleanne_sunrisejoy_secret3Sunrise Joy is made from Kona Cotton solids……… Half Square Triangles and Flying geese units !!  I can’t tell you more as you need the pattern 😉 from Homespun – 2016 February edition.

sewnbyleanne_sunrisejoy_secret4The backing fabric to this quilt is a perfect match and was a wideback (how lucky was I ????!) – A Gutermann fabric Ring-a-roses Long Island – Bird Pink .

Thank you for indulging me as my excitement settles.  Please let me know if you create a quilt from my pattern I would love to hear from you and share in your proud moment !

Happy quilting and smiling 🙂

Robotic Triangles, with love.

sewnbyleanne_patchworkquilt_robotictriangles3

Robotic Triangles – my latest Cot Quilt Set has been a labour of love !  The colours blend into the robots and the navy striped binding is stunning !

I need to apologise for all the photos – yes I am going to bombard you for two reasons.  Firstly, I love this set and will be sending it off on Monday with mixed emotions and secondly, I am thoroughly enjoying taking loads of pictures with my new camera !!sewnbyleanne_robotictraingles3_patchworkquilt

Robotic Triangles was created around the backing fabric from the Riley Blake Fabric – Fun Robots by Ann Kelle.  I have matched the solid colours on the front to the robots with Robert Kaufman’s Kona cotton solids – Capri, titanium, white, coal, lipstick, ocean and azure !

The navy stripe binding is a Moda basic !

sewnbeleanne_patchworkquilt_robotictriangles1

The Cot Quilt is 60×40″  which I find is a great size for not only the cot, but also for a play mat, lap quilt and comforter.  This makes the quilt become more versatile and a longterm investment and treasure <3 .

sewnbyleanne_patchworkquilt_robotictriangles2

I have quilted Robotic Triangles with the lovely Aurifil thread 2600 light grey and 2021 white.  I have used a very modern geometric line and LOVE the secondary pattern these lines intersecting together have made.

IMG_0582

While I was quilting, I was reminded of one of those party games ” Guess how many triangles are in this picture ???  There would be A LOT in this one !!

This is just one example of what can be created to produce stunning nursery linen that is truly unique, yet modern and stylish !!

Thanks for letting me swoon over this quilt before I send it away to it’s new home.

Ready to Quilt…..

sewnbyleanne_farmerswife1930samplerquilt_readytoquilt2

Ready to Quilt ???

I think I am as ready as I’ll ever be and as I ever have been to start a Quilt-a-long.  I’m getting excited that it is only a week away !!  I’m itching to start making the blocks – especially now that I have opened the packages of beautiful fat quarters that arrived a couple of weeks ago !!

sewnbyleanne_farmerswife1930samplerquilt_readytoquilt2

Above are a gorgeous combination of 1930s fabrics, Ella Blue Basics, Lakehouse, Emma Jean Jansen’s Terra Australis and Kona cotton solids – OMG !! I am in LOVE !!!

sewnbyleanne_farmerswife1930samplerquilt_gnomeangelfatquarters_readytoquilt

This is the Gnome Angel’s Fat Quarter Bundle put together specifically for the Farmers Wife 1930s Quilt Along – and it is divine !!  Look at all those colours – just sooooo Pretty and Amazing !!  They are a combination of Ella Blue Basics, Lakehouse, Terra Australis by Emma Jean Jansen and a few of Rosalie Quilan’s designs as well !!  Aren’t we Aussie’s so clever !!!  Together these fabrics are as pretty as a rainbow !!

sewnbyleanne_gnomeangelfatquarters_readytoquilt_farmerswife1930samplerquilt2

Then I combined my own 1930s stash with them !!

sewnbyleanne_farmerswife1930samplerquilt_readytoquilt

I’m so pleased they all work together !!  My mind is working over time now at the fabric combinations possible !! Ahh ! It is going to be hard to hold on this week and not to start – but thankfully it is school holidays and all the kids are home to distract me !!

Then I opened Rita Hodge’s (aka Red Pepper Quilts)  Kona Cotton Fat Quarter Selection !!

sewnbyleanne_readytoquilt_farmerswife1930samplerquilt

Yay !!  The solids also work !!

I am Ready to Quilt !!!  Yay !!

I have even cleaned out a drawer next to my sewing machine, specifically for the Quilt-a long – so I know exactly what I have and where !!  (Just ignore the Give Way stickers my 4 year old has put on the chest of drawers – apparently they were too white and boring lol !!)

sewnbyleanne_farmerswife1930samplerquilt_readytoquilt3

They even fit perfectly into the drawer !!  OMG I can’t believe how organised I am for this one !!

One more week everyone !!

See you there.

The old meets new…

sewnbyleanne_octagonalquiltblock_oldmeetsnew

The old meets the new, has been the theme for this week !!

My #QuiltBlockBootCamp has been given the challenge of creating this traditional Cathedral Block.

I have used 5″ squares, as in the Missouri Quilt Company Tutorial which I think made the block a little easier.
sewnbyleanne_cathedralblock_oldmeetsnewI do love the effect the solid kona cotton colours make together as the background.  I used my 5″ charm squares of gilded Japanese fabric for the centres – and the colours are just popping out at you !  This Cathedral block has been on my to do list for a while and I’m so glad Alison gave it to us, as our fortnightly challenge – as now I can say I’ve completed it.  I’m not exactly sure what this WIP will become yet – a cushion cover perhaps or even a centre piece – although it is very bright !!

sewnbyleanne_cathedralblock_oldmeetsnew_beginning

This is how the blocks looks like together, before you start to topstitch !!  It is a fun block, but can’r say that it will be my favourite.

The following block is where the old meets new – octagonal blocks have been around for many years.  Traditionally they are foundation paper pieced, and were great way to use your scraps.  With todays quilt design programs, octagonal blocks are beaming more and more complex.  This month I have signed up for a work octagonal block swap – and the first block we create our own to show others our desired colour scheme.  So I spent the weekend thinking of what I would use my finished Quilt for – and decided I wanted it to be for my daughter !!  Her favourite colours are pink and red !!  Yay !!  Then I thought of the Ella Blue Basics range – yummy <3

sewnbyleanne_ellabluebasics_oldmeetsnew

Here is the Octagonal block I have created to show my colour scheme.  I have nominated the grey as my backing fabric !  This Quilt could be red or pink or a combination – it will be fun to open the box at the end of the 12 months to see everyone’s contribution !

sewnbyleanne_octagonalquiltblock_oldmeetsnew

The pattern cannot be shared as my work colleague designed it – but is it not BEAUTIFUL <3 <3  It is a stunning block of Ella Basics surrounded by some Tilda love (which we of course all need!).

This will be a long waited WIP !!

Have great week and on the weekend I will show you the beautiful fabrics I have stashed for my Farmers Wife Sampler Quilt – oh exciting – the 28th is getting closer !!

The Sunday Wrap 2 (……but on Monday)

sewnbyleanne_whaleofatime_preppythewhale

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

sewnbyleanne_fancyfox_collage

“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.

sewnbyleanne_geometricowboys_sundaywrap2

“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”

sewnbyleanne_whaleofatime_preppythewhale

“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:

sewnbyleanne_threeinoneheart

“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.

sewnbyleanne_ribbonstarblock

“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 !

sewnbyleanne_rippleblock_gnomeangel

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 !!!

Have a great Week

Sunday Wrap up

sewnbyleanne_sweetheartblock1

The Sunday Wrap Up ….

I’m starting a series of Sunday afternoon wrap ups, where I will be showing you what has been going on at Sewn by Leanne.

This week involved Quilt Tops, Quilt Blocks, receiving a gorgeous handmade gift for my daughter from KBS Designs, working with gorgeous fabrics, organising an 11 year olds birthday and just enjoying being a Mum.

Mothers Day 2015

sewnbyleanne_mothersday2015

There were lots of cuddles and kisses this morning, a sleep in and gorgeous sweet pressies to greet me today !!  Gifts that they had made at school and kinder, along with mothers day stall purchases and of course shh – my favourite Maltesers ! (Chocolate without being overtly chocolate!)  Candles, Zipper Purse, key ring, pens, chore vouchers – I can cash in on anytime – and cards to treasure …. all making a great Mothers Day.

Together with dear friends we spent the day, playing and chatting – with soup, bread and chocolate pudding !  Thank you <3

Quilt tops

This weeks aim was to finish 4 quilt tops that 3 gorgeous clients have requested !  The first two Quilt tops are part of my favourite Equilateral triangle Cot Quilt Range.  I love how the different colours pop, especially outside in the gorgeous sunshine that popped through the clouds in Melbourne earlier in the week 🙂  The colours are all from Robert Kaufman’s Kona Cotton Solid Range.

sewnbyleanne_equilateraltrianglecotquilt1

See how the second Quilt has the warmer colours – with a touch of Amber, Latte and Chocolate !!  These Quilts are stunning to brighten up a nursery <3.

sewnbyleanne_equilateraltrianglecotquilt2The third Quilt top is filled with loads of character….  Each fabric gives each fox, it’s very own personality ….

sewnbyleanne_foxyquiltAll the fabrics were created using fabrics within my stash, oranges, yellows and reds are some of my faves !  With a couple of contrasting colours to liven up the “foxy pack”.  Can’t wait for my client to receive this Quilt 😉  I have used Elizabeth Hartman’s Fox block Pattern to create the faces, and altered the sashing and layout to fit the Quilt dimensions I am working towards.

sewnbyleanne_glitzquilt

This King Single Quilt top is even more stunning and glamorous in person.  I have seen this Michael Miller’s Glitz Fabric range in online fabric stores frequently, but now having seen it in person – it is simply stunning.  Many would say “No, don’t put spots and chevrons together”  but I think these work perfectly.  And the white sashing allows this little girl to treasure her Quilt into her teens and beyond.  The pinwheel blocks create interest amongst the Squares.

Alice in Wonderland Clock by KBS Designs

sewnbyleanne_KBSdesigns_aliceclock

 

On Friday this gorgeous clock arrived for my daughter and it will look AWESOME on her wall.  Being in First Grade, she is obsessed with the time at present.  When I saw Alice I just knew she would be a perfect fit into Miss C’s Room.  Karyn has gorgeous high quality bespoke decor for all ages – make sure you go and have a look at her page  here !

Quilt Blocks

This week’s block was “The Busy Block” at Blossom Heart Quilts.  I am loving learning how to paper piece !  This block has an amazing transformation depending on how you organise the four parts of the block.

sewnbyleanne_busyblockcollage

In the end I choose the third arrangement, as I liked the way the light blue frames the “leaves”.  This Busy block would make an amazing Quilt, with the impression of leaves and wonky stars !

sewnbyleanne_busyblock3

My Hive’s May Queen Choose “The Double Star” block for her choice in greens and aquas.  This is one of my favourite blocks so far that we have created.  I am excited to send this one to my Queen and look forward to seeing her final Quilt top.
sewnbyleanne_doublestar_mayqueenAnd as I LOVED creating Elizabeth Hartman’s Foxes so much, here is a close up of a FOXY Fox !

sewnbyleanne_foxquilt2

 

Last night as I ran out of Kona cotton solid White – I played with a few scraps – and created this “Sweetheart Block”  it is not finished yet -I aim to get it to 12.5″, making it “Three hearts in One”.  but we will see how I go !  it is a bit fiddly with half inch blocks – and might be better as a paper pieced block – but I shall let you know !

sewnbyleanne_sweetheartblock1

I hope you have enjoyed the Sunday Wrap up – I hope to make this series a weekly post, so that you can see what is being created and designed at Sewn by Leanne.  Again I hope everyone enjoyed their Mothers Day.  Give your Mum a huge Hug……..

Blessings as always,

Leanne

Feather Treasures – A Mini Quilt

sewnbyleanne_feathertreasures_miniquilt2

Feather Treasures

My First Mini Quilt – Feather Treasures – this week was a delight to make.  This “Feather Bed Quilt Block” by Anna Marie Horner appealed from the first moment I saw it a couple of weeks ago.

sewnbyleanne_feathertreasures_miniquilt1

As I have been been at home most of the week with laryngitis and 4 small children on school holidays, the fabric delivery of these Dashwood Studio Fabrics from Wild Cotton Fabrics was a BIG highlight !!  The Combination of fabrics and the feather bed Quilt Block Pattern is simply stunning.

I have used Dashwood Studios Cuckoos calling as the backing – and just love those gorgeous Cuckoo Clocks and little birds !! (Please excuse the few threads I have just noticed in this photo !)

sewnbyleanne_feathertreasures_miniquiltbackingThere are a few hints I can give you now that I have made Feather treasures, to make your creations a little easier and without too much fabric wastage.

The link to the Quilt Block Tutorial is : www.annamariehorner.com/feather.bed.quilt.pdf

Tips:

1.  Strip piecing:  cut your PDF pieces out first.  Using WOFs  you need to have a length of 18″ for the pattern pieces to fit on the angle!  You can cut 3 Complete Feathers out of one WOF Strip piece.

In doing this there is quite a bit of fabric wastage, which is another reason why I have cut the four triangles of fabric left on the bias and created 2.5″ bias binding from them.

2.  Paper piecing:  This is the method I would choose next time I create this Quilt.  I think it would certainly decrease the amount of fabric wastage.  I think it would be a great beginners project to paper piecing!

3. Stem of the leaf:  Great for your little long scraps.  It is simply a 1″ strip. So look through your small scraps pile before cutting.

4. Background:  This Mini Quilt took 1/2 yard of grey Kona Cotton Solid.  At first Glance it doesn’t look like a lot of background, and I was surprised that it took most of the half yard.

sewnbyleanne_feathertreasures_miniquilt2

 

Feather Treasures Mini Quilt Details:

Size: 20×30″

Front:  Feather Bed Quilt Block Pattern x3, Dashwood Studios Cuckoo calling range of fabrics, Cotton & Steel Tangrams, Kona Cotton Grey Solid.

Back: Dashwood Studio Cuckoo calling in Navy

Batting: 100% Cosy Cotton

Quilting:  FMQ Designed by Sewn by Leanne, Gutermann Sulky Thread Navy 1044 and Silver 1011

Binding: Dashwood Studio Cuckoos Calling Range from Strip piecing.

 

My Thanks to Christine Healy for sharing this Block in Quilt Block Boot Camp, which is where is was this gorgeous Quilt Block first !!

Have a go, this Quilt block would be gorgeous as a Cushion Cover, Table runner, Wall Feature, Lap Quilt or Bed Quilt of any size !

 

Happy Quilting

Leanne 🙂

Quilt Blocks and more……..

sewnbyleanne_quiltblocks_churndash

Signing up to the Quilt Block Boot camp and The Bee Hive Swap  has been sensational.  I cannot thank Sew Delicious, Blossom Heart Quilts and Gnome Angel enough for organising them <3 <3  .  Please excuse the number of photos in this post compared to words, But I’m just having so much fun extending my skills, I have to show you.

Economy Quilt Blocks

These are just gorgeous.  They are simple but so effective !  I plan to create a couple of “I spy” Quilts with these Quilt blocks.  I love to fussy cut, so I have been enjoying these !  Which block do you like the most ???  The Sneetches holding hands is my favourite !!

11048672_743500402430600_4519901315735226680_n

 

Quilt Block Boot Camp

The rest week last week has allowed me to catch up:  Yes as you scroll through the photos you will recognise similar fabrics, and my aim is to build a Quilt with all of these Quilt Blocks or maybe even more than ONE !!

The SIMPLE FRIENDSHIP QUILT BLOCKS are first – I just love how the positive and negative images work together !!

Fabric :  Cotton and Steel Tanagrams in Indigo and Petit Street by Dashwood studios.

sewnbyleanne_quiltblocks_wonkystars

 

The CROSS-STITCH BLOCK by PileO’Fabric is gorgeous too.  I’m undecided whether this Quilt Block is actually suited to 2 fabrics that are patterned.  It may be a bit too busy.  What do you think ??

Fabric:  Creative Thursday Fabric on White and Aneela Hoey Little Apples Red.

sewnbyleanne_quiltblocks_crossstitch

 

From the same fabric I made the simple little HEART QUILT BLOCK by Cluck Cluck Sew.

When I first saw this photo I thought I’d forgotten to sew the left top corner piece to finish the heart, however I have I assure you – I just didn’t make sure it just has too much of the red heart in the small piece.  Something to always watch out for, especially when you are cutting 1″ blocks !!  It does’t take much for the cutting to go wrong !!

sewnbyleanne_quiltblocks_heart

 

Today, I enjoyed sewing the CHURN DASH QUILT BLOCK by Cluck Cluck Sew (another one of my favourite Bloggers).  I love the fussy cut middle Square.  Mixing Cotton and Steel fabrics with the more traditional pattern of Tilda is not something I would ordinarily think of.  But I think the pink highlights the pink tanagrams.

Fabric:  Cotton and Steel Tanagrams in Indigo, Tilda Damask Ruby Pink, Riley Blake’s Country Girl.

sewnbyleanne_quiltblocks_churndash

 

The Bee Hive Swap

These Blocks are more challenging, but the end results are stunning.

Firstly the block I made for the month of March was the WANTA FANTA by The Better Off Thread.  The requirements were any scrappy bright fabrics for the corners and fan, but the background was to be Chartreuse (green).

This is the result, the Quilt Block is currently in the snail mail to the Queen Bee, so hopefully she will like it !!

sewnbyleanne_quiltblocks_wantafantaThe challenging aspect to this block is to get your scant 1/4″ seams correct so that the fans will line up with the corners.

Fabrics:  Again I have used Cotton and Steel Tanagrams, 2 Creative Thursday Fabrics, and The light blue fabric is by Sue Penn for Studio B fabrics.

As well as creating my monthly swap Quilt Block, I am making the additional blocks, which will go into my Quilt eventually !!  This MINERAL QUILT BLOCK by Jane at QUILT JANE is gorgeous and great for those little scraps.

Again I have used my favourite Cotton and Steel Fabric, but included a great low volume black and White text Print called Vineyard from Riley Blake fabrics.  This is new to my stash and bought it from the Cotton Factory in the last couple of weeks.  Make sure you follow Alison on Instagram @Cotton Factory Destash as she has great deals on unusual stunning fabrics like this one !

I was very chuffed when @QuiltJane on Instagram shared this block over the weekend.  Thank you 🙂

sewnbyleanne_quiltblocks_mineral

 

QCA Bee

This is the last block I’m sharing today !!  It is called the X PLUS QUILT BLOCK.  I love the bright scrappy feel of it, and can’t wait to see this Quilt put together !!  A tutorial can be found on the Badskirt blog.

sewnbyleanne_quiltblocks_xplus

 

Using a bright fabric for the PLUS and then extending with a dark certainly works for this block.  Again I have used the Vineyard Low Volume Fabric .  I love the red centre of this block !!

As you can see hopefully these Blocks will come together in an awesome Quilt !!  Some are easy and others are challenging, but I think sometimes the easier ones are just as  stunning.  Let me know what you think of the blocks, and if you feel so inclined try one of out (or all of them !)  Just click on the links !

If you do try one of them, please share with me !!  Here in the comments or on Instagram @sewnbyleanne

Happy Quilting

Leanne 🙂

Kaleidoscope of colours

NB: The photos of my Kaleidoscope of Colour Quilt has been taken down due to an opportunity for publication.  Thank you for your understanding and I will keep you posted as to when and where you can see this gorgeous Quilt published xx

Introducing “The Kaleidoscope of Colour Quilt

My latest commissioned Quilt is just finished – the stunning  “Kaleidoscope of Colour Quilt”.

It was a privilege to deliver this Quilt to it’s owner this week, and am sooooo happy she absolutely adores it………….  I’m going to keep her identity a secret just a little bit longer as I’m going to play a little game on my Facebook page tomorrow !!  This bright and happy  Queen Sized Quilt (80×100″) has been the largest project I have undertaken to date and Quilted myself – it did help that my new sewing machine arrived in the middle of creating the Quilt top (thank goodness ).

 

 

It is so rewarding to see the design come to life…..  The Quilt top was inspired by  “Postcards from Sweden” by Jeliquilts  who was firstly inspired by an IKEA postcard.  I have extended the original pattern and altered the pattern of colours so that is still has a “kaleidoscope”  effect!

 

 

and from this sheet of graph paper coloured in – The “Kaleidoscope of Colour Quilt”  became this stunning, rainbow Queen Size Quilt.

 

 

and it is just stunning, bright and happy.

Stand by for further posts as it has inspired me to show you how this Quilt was created…………   From labelling the 38 Kona cotton solids by Robert Kaufman Fabrics (all purchased from “The Fabric Shack” in the USA, cutting the correct number of squares and triangles from each colour to form the blocks, more labelling of rows and columns ………..and the final decision to Straight line Quilt this gorgeous Quilt in neutral Grey (Gutermann thread).

Please indulge me in showing you more photos of the Kaleidoscope of Colour Quilt ………….

 

and another……..

and another:

 

Kaleidoscope of Colour Quilt Details are as follows:

Size:  80×100″  Queen Size Quilt.

Top:  Traditional Half Square Triangles, inspired by  “Postcards from Sweden” by Jeliquilts.  Fabric is an assortment of  38 Robert Kaufman Fabrics Kona Cotton Solids

Back and Binding:  Robert Kaufman Fabrics Kona Cotton Solids Navy.

Batting:  100%  Cosy Cotton.

Thread:  Neutral Grey 038 Gutermann Thread on top, and Navy 1044 Gutermann Sulky Thread.

Quilting:  Straight Line using a Walking foot.

Thank you for enjoying this Quilt………  Stay tuned for how this Quilt was made !!

Leanne xx
