Today I pieced my remade Shabby Roses blocks and I got all warm and fuzzy when I laid it out to photograph...
Over the next week I hope to quilt it! The fabrics are a mix of Tilda and Tanya Whelan - both gorgeous, but I am still deciding what fabric to use for the binding.
The layout is different to my original pattern, but to be honest, I like this one better because I have the two Shabby Roses blocks right in the middle.
This is my original...
Which version is your favourite, and why?
Some very lovely ladies have sent me photos of their completed Elefantz projects and I'm so excited to share them with you!
Last year Fiona asked if her quilt group could have permission to make a quilt using my Shabby Roses quilt blocks and raffle it for charity.
"Of course!" I said, "but make sure you send me a photo when it's done." - and now it is!!
Here is Fiona 'dressed' in the completed and ready-to-raffle Shabby Roses quilt ....
Haven't those ladies been busy!? I feel very humbled at all the work they've put into this project using my block designs. Please visit Fiona's blog HERE to see more photos and read about the raffle. You ladies rock, and may God bless you with the raffle!
Shez in Victoria spied my bag design in a magazine and made it up using the cutest of owl fabrics!
You know, Shez, my Blossom would run off with it if she saw it - she has quite a love for owls, especially since our 'owl rescue' earlier this year - because your bag looks wonderful!
Vickie has been using the Christmas Tree design from my Daisy Christmas Runner to make a runner of her own! Love it!!
As most of you know, I have been sharing a "Circles of Life" block each month in my Elefantz HOME magazine.
The very lovely Di Jobbins sent me photos of the blocks she has made so far, and they are *beautiful*....please visit her blog to see more, you'll be inspired.
Many people have emailed to ask if I am selling the complete pattern to make "Circles of Life". It will be available in January 2012, once all the blocks have been shared in Elefantz HOME magazine.
However, if you'd like to start making the quilt now, I have decided to offer Issues 1, 2, 3, and 4 of the magazine in a bundle for purchase HERE through my Etsy Shop for $20 AUD (about $21.30 USD).
Sold separately they are $7 per issue if you are not a subscriber, a saving of $8.
But, within the pages of those four PDF issues you will receive $64 worth of original and new "Jenny of Elefantz" designs! I have a limited number available in my shop so you'd best be quick. :-)
**Issue 5, the bumper Christmas issue, is also available now in my Etsy Shop for $7. You'll find it HERE.
Next Thursday our Sam turns 19, so we'll have the family all back under one roof for a celebratory meal, as well as Kezzie, Bert and the grandsons! When asked what our newly-living-away-from-home would like for his birthday he told us all to get him Woolworths vouchers so he can use them to buy groceries and keep his 'real' money for spending. Did I ever tell you our son was a bit of an oddball? LOL!!
