Pattern Repeat!

Another quilt in the making---to be gifted, once the binding is sewn on!
 I repeated a pattern I have used prior, this quilt pictured below is in constant use in our house.
MoMo wonderland fabric range
Pattern is Wild thing by Thimble Blossoms
I admire Vanessa's new colour range, so I quickly bought two charm packs from Kate.
Added in was some homespun in the Sand colourway.
Vivid and fresh colours
 The pattern I used is a favourite --Wild Things by Camille, quick to prepare, and the blocks sew up quite speedily using the chain piecing method.



I was too impatient too wait for yardage of Simply Colour-- to utilise for the borders to arrive via post, so I enlisted a friend to help choose the fabric for the two borders- at our local Spotlight.
Backing fabric, border and binding fabric
Borders added and passed onto Mrs WB for some of her precise quilting.
lovely quilting - yet again

Binding sewn on, in the process of completing the hand sewing.

I am pleased with the vibrant colours in this quilt, loving the pops of hot pink --I did not want it to appear too feminine when completed;  I was not disappointed at all.
Hoping that this will cheer up and cheer on the sports mad family- who will be the recipient of this quilt.  A splash of colour providing warmth at the cool mornings and afternoons of winter sport.


  1. Nice to see where fabric ends up! LOVE how the quilt turned out!! It's one of my fave patterns too.

  2. It is always to see a finished project, and I appreciated your super speedy post.

  3. Ohhhh...I dream of having a local Spotlight....why can't they stock DS in John Lewis???

  4. I was adding the quilt looks fabulous - full of movement, but the stupid ipad doesn't let me edit a comment...drrrrrr
