Zoo Animals - September Block

And tada! It's September and we're up to the final block! I trust you'll forgive me for being a few days late posting this - I have only just returned from travelling overseas. But as an apology (and because it's my birthday), here's a discount code for my payhip shop! 25% off all patterns, valid until the 11th September.




Now onto the final Zoo Animals block. It's the lion! Roar! The most difficult of the 9 blocks but worth it in the end. You can find it for free in my payhip shop for the month of August.







Quick review of all the BoM patterns. All nine which have brought us through til September. Now you have the last few months of the year to get the patterns finished and put together into a fun quilt or wallhanging.

Zoo BoM

Each pattern makes a 10” block. The patterns range in skill level but there are no Y seams involved. You can buy each of these patterns individually or find the entire bundle in my shop.

I can’t wait to see how you make this pattern your own. Thanks for sewing along this year! Make sure you pop back and link it up here to share your version! Or post them on IG and tag me (@quietplay) and hashtag #quietplaypatterns

Zoo Animals - August Block

And we're up to August. Crazy. I nearly forgot to post this today! Days are going by so fast.  ! So let's go on with the next block in the Zoo Animals series. This month we're making the Monkey!  I look forward to seeing how you make your version of this pattern! It's the second last block of the BoM - we're quickly coming to the end. Hope you have enjoyed it so far!

You can find it for free in my payhip shop for the month of August.





A quick refresher on how the BoM works. There are 9 patterns which will take you through to September. That gives you the last few months of the year to get the patterns finished and put together into a fun quilt or wallhanging.

Zoo BoM

Each pattern makes a 10” block. The patterns range in skill level and I will be sharing the easier ones first leading up to the hardest at the end (I’m looking at you Mr Lion). Each month there will be one free pattern made available. It becomes a paid pattern on the 1st of the next month (Australian time because I’m Australian) and the next pattern becomes available. Or if you can’t wait for all of the patterns to become available, you can pick up the entire bundle in my shop.

Please note that while I’m sharing the easier ones first, these aren’t super simple basic paper pieced patterns. Mainly because of the eyes which tend to have small pieces. However I quite like the charm of the eyes in the patterns so I decided to keep them in and have a mid range skill level this year.

You can pop by my shop and pick this pattern up for free during April. I can’t wait to see how you make this pattern your own. Make sure you pop back and link it up here to share your version! Or post them on IG and tag me (@quietplay) and hashtag #quietplaypatterns

Zoo Animals - July block


July! This year is just flying by isn't it! So let's go on with the next block in the Zoo Animals series. This month we're making the Koala! Because who doesn't love a koala? Little hint - they aren't bears, and they don't like being called Koala Bears. So let's just go with Koala :) I look forward to seeing how you make your version of this pattern!

You can find it for free in my payhip shop for the month of July.  (PS for the next two days you can also get 25% off any of the patterns in my shop - just use the code "LoveFPP" Enjoy!).

Zoo Animals - June Block


June! This year is just flying by isn't it! So let's go on with the next block in the Zoo Animals series. This month we're making the Blue Macaw! Such a cheeky little bird - I can't wait to see your version of this pattern. You can find it for free in my payhip shop for the month of June.

Blogger's Quilt Festival - Geometric Sewing Machine

Those who follow me on IG know that I'm kind of loving geometric patterns at the moment. It seemed only natural that a sewing machine silhouette was on the list to go all geometric. With the great excuse of having to come up with something for a swap (#alisonglassminiquiltswap for the curious), I got busy and came up with this!


This mini quilt is just filled with things I love. A vintage sewing machine, geometric design, rainbow (rainbow! who doesn't love rainbows?!) and Alison Glass's Sun Prints.



I finished it off with some straight line quilting, bound with some pretty Bike Path print and called it done!

The pattern for this is foundation paper pieced (no surprise there) and you can find it in my shop. And here's a little mockup of how the pattern might look in single colours too. For me, rainbow was clearly the winner. Because rainbow.


 

I'm linking this up in the Mini Quilt section for the Blogger's Quilt Festival. You can find more details about the festival here. Go check out all that pretty quilty eye candy! Have fun!
