Wombat Wonderland Blog Tour

Living in Sydney I sometimes bump into Saffron Craig - Saffron is incredibly approachable and full of enthusiasm for what she does.

I was lucky enough to have a peak at the new range Wombat Wonderland earlier in the year and loved it straight away - the pattern/ shapes and colours are wonderful (Wonderful-Wombat Wonderland!)

Anyway I'm honoured to be part of the Blog Tour & hope you like what I came up with

I'm the last stop on the 
Wombat Wonderland Blog Tour!

so far I have really enjoyed everyones projects.

          Friday the 31st of August Katia of Plushka

Friday the 21st of September Katy of I'm a Ginger Monkey

 and Now it seems its my turn

Friday the 28th of September Siobhan Rogers of 
Bespoke Quilts

I had the Wombat Wonderland fabrics sitting in my studio for a while - I like to look at fabrics and imagine what they can be.
I like making quilts with large piecing - its a nice way to show off great fabrics.

Above is the range of fabrics I had

I wanted to add in some solid coloured fabrics and make it into a large single bed quilt.

 My youngest Ms 6 has fallen in love with the Wombats and requested they go onto her bed.

This is the mix I ended up with 

To start with I framed some squares, randomly placing the solid colours and Wombat Wonderland prints.

I made 20 squares all up

It looked fine - But I wanted to mix up the colours again and decided to use a pattern I did a little while back called Eton Mess 

& Voila!
one finished large single bed quilt top

Its currently at the long arm machine quilters having the lovely final touches done.

I'll keep Saffron posted about the finished product - I cant wait to see it quilted and on Ms 6's bed.

I'm eyeing of the Blue Sunrays fabric or the garden stripes as the binding - maybe even both? 

Hope you enjoyed everyones creations & Thank you to Saffron!

Xx Siobhan
