Hi …. !!!

I’ve just updated my website !!!

I know, it’s about time right..!!! I’ve made it all pretty and easy to navigate. I have a link to my shop where you can buy my patterns and templates. I still have more to upload but I’m getting there…

There’s been loads happening behind the scenes this year. I have an assistant working for me one day a week. Rachael is great at getting all the things done that I just never get time to do… Rach is a sweetheart and great friend..!!!

Rach and I at a strategy meeting earlier this year….

On the Pattern front, I have been updating all my patterns and prepping new designs for release this year. I now have a range of acrylic templates to accompany some of my patterns… with others designs that use these templates currently in the testing process. I also have lots of other patterns that are a quick download and require no templates.

In the Quilting Studio things are rocketing along after a slow start to the year due to machine breakdown and some health issues. Both are recovered and, fingers crossed, we’ve put the bad juju behind us….

Zoom Zoom…!!!

If you would like your quilt professionally quilted by Leanne head on over to the Contact Page to send a message…

Thanks for hanging in there with me

I’ll be back with more news soon…

Quilting, for me, is all about texture. I love adding designs/texture that will enhance the quilt and bring it to life…

Different styles of quilting create different textures.

Edge to edge quilting creates an overall texture that blends or enhances the quilt top as a whole. It’s a lot faster to do this type of quilting and it suits all kinds of quilts… I will even edge to edge over some applique, especially on kids quilts…

Custom Quilting adds texture in specific areas of a quilt with different designs and fills… There is usually lots of stitch in the ditch, ruler work, applique outlining and freehand quilting… Some quilts require a lot of design planning and others I can just wing it….

I used the flower stem for the feather spine
Using the same filler design through the whole quilt gives it a cohesive look
The back always looks amazing on a custom quilt..!!

Quilting on my mind …. always …

My mind runs at a million miles an hour …. It’s always about quilting (and travel, but I can’t do that all the time)… designing quilts, making quilts, quilting quilts and teaching people about quilts.

In my studio right now I’m working on a clients interesting custom quilt that I’ve been given free reign on… there may be octopi involved … lol

On my design wall is my Sydney show quilt that I’m working feverishly to get finished… I thought this might be the year that actually get it finished with plenty of time to spare… but unfortunately I lost a month because of a car accident… we’re all ok but the car didn’t fair so well….

And in a total squirrel moment today, cause I don’t have enough on my plate, I pulled fabric for my next quilt. In my defense it is for an upcoming magazine project so it’s completely legit….

Until next time

Happy Quilting

Newcastle Craft Alive Show

After many days of preparation, today was the first day of the Newcastle Craft Alive Show. This is my first SOLO stand at a show…. it’s very exciting! I had some great friends working my stand with me. Thanks to Rachael, Laura and Emma for putting up with my scatterbrain. I am a Bernina Longarm Dealer so I have 2 gorgeous machines on the stand. I also have a bunch of my quilts for sale. There’s a bit of fabric and heaps of laughter ๐Ÿ˜ It was great meeting loads of quilty people and catching up with old friends.

We’ll be back to do it all again tomorrow

Pine Burr Blocks/ Circles

I see these gorgeous blocks on my Unicorn wall quilt every time I walk through to my studio…. they make me happy ๐Ÿ˜†

They are so much fun to make and great to use up lots of fabric bits ….

My friend Rachaeldaisy teaches this technique all over the place. If you get a chance to take one of her classes you’ll learn heaps….

The Explorer. ..

I had the great pleasure to join forces with the lovely Michelle Marvig to create this gorgeous quilt “The Explorer “. Michelle perfectly pieced the quilt top and I got to do my thing and quilt it to death with custom quilting.

I had loads of fun. There is tons of ruler work with both straight and curved rulers. I only used two fill designs, swirls and back & forth straight lines.

It is such a bold, bright quilt I didn’t want to take away from the design so I used matching thread and used designs to enhance the quilt.
