Cherish the Key

Today I finished the binding on this quilt.  I have had this Cherish Nature Jelly Roll for a while and never could find the right pattern, till Gail showed me this one.  Its called “Key to my Heart”.  So simple to make and works with any fabric (looks amazing in Pure)


Was thinking for giving it to my baby sister Karla (9 yrs.) for a Easter present.  But it goes so so well with my couch…  In my little stash I  still have a layer cake, a panel, charms and some fat quarters of cherish.  Maybe I could make myself something another time.

Another day, another dream.

Take care


Something for “Luke”

Late last year my good friend Shireen asked me if i wanted to do a little stitchery block from her to her BF in Toowoomba. Of course I said yes when I found out that these blocks were going to be made up into a Memory Quilt about her BF’s  son “Luke”.  Luke died at a very young age a few years back from a illness he was born with.   I personally did not know him, I was just captured by all the stories I have heard ( A small boy filled with love, laughter and dreams). 

There is a group of ladies in Toowoomba that are doing the finishing construction of the quilt using his favourite cloths . Hopefully Shireen will get a photo of it for me when it’s finish.  All the different blocks from stitcheries, applique, needle turn and ones with a bit of everything.

Shireen and I picked out the stitchery block together from the “Life is Beautiful” book from Helen Stubbings.  The BOTM I have not yet started (lol).  Luke loved butterflies, purple and the saying was just perfect.

So here it is.


We also had an idea to do a photo block with memories from Shireen’s children of Luke.


I loved doing this project.  It is just a great idea to cherish the memories of someone special that you have lost.

Well back to the sewing room to finish off the binding on a quilt.  I will pop back soon with a little pic.

Take care
