Here are my pieced Drunkard's Path blocks that I used as my round in the Girt By Sea Quilt.
A quilt that pays homage to everything Australian:
💥an 8 pointed star 💫to represent our country's 8 states and territories;
💥windmill blocks often seen on our rural plains;
💥appliquéd circles and leaves 🍃 reminiscent of fruits of the land;
💥rugged mountain log cabin ranges;
💥drunkards path Girt By Sea blocks 🌊and;
💥 a friendship braid that represents the multicultural heartbeat of Australia!

Just to let you know if you're not sure about curves and some of the other techniques used in this quilt there will be a monthly sew along starting in April and the all the designers will do a tutorial and give you tips to help you along.

You can now purchase the awesome pattern for $15 (USD - about $20 AUD depending on the exchange rate) by heading over to @modernmakersretreat and the link for the pattern is in the profile.

The fabulous Aussie designers involved: @talesofcloth, @keera.job, @downgrapevinelane, @blossomheartquilts, @emmajeanjansen and @shequiltsalot

Thanks you Sharon and Alison for such a fabulous day 😊

Have a look at this amazing version of Girt by Sea by @jackiegillies
Got to love a rainbow 🌈 ----------------------------------------------------
Repost from @jackiegillies using @RepostRegramApp

One of the reasons I've been quiet around here of late is that I've been secretly working away testing our new collaboration - Girt By Sea.

Of course, it was always going to be a rainbow 🌈 and since my love affair with @alisonglass fabric is going pretty strong at the moment, naturally I've used #sunprint2017 and some other AG treasures!

I'm so proud of this quilt - which I've dubbed "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" (you know, because we're in Oz!) - the colours are so gorgeous and I've poured my heart and soul into it...

I'd love to see how you guys interpret this awesome Aussie designed quilt - head over to @modernmakersretreat, click on the link in the profile and you'll find the button to buy the PDF pattern for instant download. Get ready for our sew-along starting 25 April!

A detail photo of my Boxes and Crosses Quilt, from By the Bundle, showing the quilting. I just used my walking foot and I quilted 1/4" either side of the seams. Nice and simple!!
I have a number of copies of my book, By The Bundle available to purchase from my etsy store. Link in profile.

My Boxes and Crosses Quilt from my book By The Bundle uses low volume fabrics to jazz up a simple nine patch.
