Sunday finds & another raggy quilt in the making

hi everyone!
checking in to show you what i found at the markets today.
it was our most chilly night/morning since last Winter here in Brisbane
- a minimum of 6 degrees.
my 1st find- some lovely bright fabrics. i'm always happy to add to my fabric stash ;)
and then i found this gorgeous vintage beauty in a box with other really boring stuff!
i couldn't believe my luck. and it's even in my fav colour!
2 large Royal Albert teacups.
i've already enjoyed a cuppa in one while sewing today.
i can never walk past a nice wicker basket.
a pretty floaty top.
an old ash tray stand.
thought i might glue a tray or plate on the top.
haven't decided yet, but like this look.
While Em was out shopping with a bunch of her girlfriends yesterday,
Kace and I hit Spotlight. She chose some fabrics for me to make her a raggy quilt.
I must say, i'm totally in favour of her fabric choices!
i've backed each square in the same fabric, so that the raggy side
will be an exact match to the flat quilted side.
it will be a queen size, so no finishing it off in several hours like this one!
This one took a little longer!!
not sure what's happening with my comments- they're not showing up for some reason.
and while clicking around trying to work it all out, i found a link to the original
blogger! not a good idea, as it's only prolonging the change to the new blogger!
i'm so much more familiar with it though ;)
i'll be back tomorrow with a furniture makeover!

  1. Your quilt is off to a great start. I love the bird fabric! And that hanger with clothespins - so cool. What would have hung from it originally?

    1. thankyou Bronwyn! i'm not sure about the hanger. would love to know if anyone else does!

  2. Love Kace's fabric too - polka dots and birds in one of my fave colours! That clothespin hanger looks easy to make too - for you, not for me, that is :) Would sell beautifully next time you do a stall!

  3. Hi Kate, I found your blog via a comment you left on Pam's blog Petals and Vintage, and boy I am glad I did..I look forward to reading more of your posts!
