Every time I release a new fabric range I also design a few quilts using the new fabric.
This is the first time I get to actually play with my new fabric designs and it is always heaps of fun.

The first quilt I made using 60's Scrapbag is called the Peace Quilt.
I wanted to design a quilt that used the iconic peace symbol that was very popular during the 1960's.

Then I decided to sash the quilt using all the fabrics so the quilt had a flower power feel.

It was heaps of fun matching up the fabrics!

I love the way the quilt turned out and I think the simple quilting made the Peace signs really shine!

In my next quilt I decided to use some of the fabulous new Basics Range produced by Ella Blue.

These fabrics work perfectly with 60's Scrapbag!

I used a double pinwheel block which gives the quilt so much movement.
I also enjoyed pairing up the fabrics! I quilted the quilt myself using
my walking foot. I just did straight lines either side of the seams.
