Last Monday I was tagged by Jodie of RicRac  to take part in the Round the World Blog Hop. A blog hop where bloggers talk about their creative process. It's been really interesting answering these questions as it's not something I think about, I just create. Hope you enjoy reading a bit about my creative process.WHAT AM I WORKING ON?For the last couple of weeks I have been designing and making new quilts out of my new range of fabrics, The Linen Cupboard. This range of fabrics is my third and I am totally in love with it. It is inspired by the vintage sheets from the 1960's and 70's and if you read my blog regularly you would have seen some of the projects that I have designed using the original sheets. Besides designing and making 4 quilts to promote this range at Quilt Market I have also been creating lots of cute things to have on my booth. They are all laundry inspired and should decorate my booth perfectly. I am on the home stretch now and leave to go to Houston on the 21st of October so I am starting to get a little bit excited now most of the work is completed.HOW DOES MY WORK DIFFER FROM OTHERS OF IT'S GENRE?This is a hard one to answer and I have been thinking about it all week. I don't think anything is totally original anymore in both fabric and quilt design but the way each designer puts colour and pattern together makes it original to them. I am very comfortable using bright colours in my designs and try to use new colour and design combinations.WHY DO I WRITE / CREATE WHAT I DO?I think the answer to this one is easy - it's because I need too. I have always loved drawing and colouring and made it into a career after doing a degree in Textile Design at RMIT. I don't think I would be happy if my day job didn't involve being creative. I am continuously thinking about new quilt designs and seeing patterns in everything around me. I am driven to come up with new block designs to create interesting and modern quilts. I have notepads full of fabric designs and drawings of new quilt designs and if I am not sewing I am drawing.HOW DOES MY WRITING / CREATIVE PROCESS WORK?As far as my fabric designs are concerned I try to find a hole in whats available at the time. My first two Terra Australis ranges were designed after noticing that there were no bright comtemporary Australian themed fabrics around. Australia had some fabulous iconic images and I just knew I needed to put them into a range of fabrics. The Linen Cupboard came from my love of vintage sheets and knowing that it was getting harder and harder to find them in the op shops. Also the quality of the sheets bought used can be a little inconsistent so I thought a range based around these was needed. When I design quilts I love to have restrictions as it forces me to be more creative. If I only have 30cms of 16 fabrics, I find I really push myself to create a pattern that uses those fabrics that showcases them in the best way possible. The next blogger I am tagging is Janelle Wind.  The is one of Janelle's lastest quilt patterns called "Hello Happy"

Welcome to my new Blog! Since closing Ballarat Patchwork it has been extremely busy, packing up the shop, moving house and designing new quilts. As you know I have a new range of fabrics due out at the beginning of December with the Australian company Ella Blue. So I have been locked away designing and making new quilts for it's release at Quilt Market in the US at the end of the month. The range is called "Terra Australis" and is a fresh and bright take on Australian flora and fauna.        There are two colourways, Eucalyptus and Outback. The fabric as well as the patterns I am designing will be available for you to buy in my online store.         You can also purchase all my previous patterns and related templates from the online store too!           I also wanted to say thank you to all the people that sent me emails, cards and popped into the store to say good bye. I will miss seeing you all but hopefully we can stay in touch through the blog and also facebook!
