Blog hop giveaway

Hi, just an update....for my blog hop giveaway, I am offering two wonderful charm packs.  Each pack has about 40/42 fabrics and each square is about 5".  Great for small projects and saves on the cutting out!
I have made a couple of quilts for my woollies, aka the labradoodles with charm packs.  If you would like to win these charm packs leave me a comment telling me what you would do with them!  A lovely early Christmas pressie for someone!  I am so excited to be part of this blog hop!  I am happy to ship worldwide!
The draw will take place on 17th December so good luck!

Hunters star quilt....

Along with the lemoyne star ruler from the US I also acquired a hunters star ruler...and I made this!
What lovely stars are formed!
It came out so well, after lots of trimming and cutting!  Well worth it though.

Long time, no blog!!

Time flies by..December is here and as usual, everything is chaotic in the running chicken household.  Busy with last minute quilts for Christmas, making samples for classes taking place in the new year, and celebrating my Mums birthday!!
One of the quilts recently completed has gone to was such good fun to quilt

I hope it brings lots of smiles and warmth to the recipient!!
Meanwhile I have been experimenting with a new ruler by Deb Tucker to make lemoyne star blocks...I love them so much that I am teaching a class or two in the new year.  What do you think?
In this picture above, I used my Tilda fabrics and in the one below, I tried the other end of the ruler and used two colours for the star...
Wonderful rulers!!!  I am selling some on website soon...we are just updating our shop, so please take a look or call for more info.
