A few months ago I made a quilt using 2 candy logs of Terra Australis.Candy logs are the same as jelly rolls, a pack of 2.5" wide strips.I really enjoyed putting the colours together in this quilt and the silver hanky linen really sets the diamond shapes off.Of course I had to call it Australis Diamonds! This pattern can be found in the current issue of Quilters Companion, No 69.

I think it is finally time for me to have a go at these hexigons. A nice little bit of handpiecing for me to take to sewing groups and while I am travelling.I have fussy cut some of the fabrics and love the look it gives.Just one question for all those hexi makers out there.Do you sew baste or glue the fabric to the paper hexigons?

I have spent the last week re-making two of Terra Australis quilt samples. All the samples we unfortunately lost on the trip back to Australia. They should be found but unfortunately not quick enough for the Australian Quilt Market which is on this weekend in Melbourne.Ella Blue has added all the designs from Terra Australis to their website. Pop on over and check out the range.One of the quilts I re-made was Nine Birds. The quilt just suits the Terra Australis range perfectly. Another quilt I re-made is Waratah Crowns. This uses the main print from Terra Australis which is perfect for fussy cutting. I also spotted a giveaway that had some Terra Australis Fat Quarters. Head on over to the Crazy Old Ladies Blog and comment for a chance to win!
