Inspired bloggy goodness

The lovely Marg,  over at Sunshine and Paradise has been very inspirational over this last year, and late in the year she produced a second raw edge appliqué quilt. So I decided then and there I was going to make this lovely quilt. I started this quilt last weekend and have to have it finished by this one....eeekkk. My daughters best friend is 18 on Australia day, and i thought that i would love to give this to her and with her party on the weekend I better get my skates on. So I have been busy sewing up a storm, and raiding  my friends stash. ( I happened to sneak up to the Retreat for a few nights with some girlfriends so didnt have my own stash handy.....)  and I popped into see Penny at the Patchwork Angel and she had a great deal on some Fat quarters she was clearing out. So I picked up some Kate Spain, and others and voila. It just needs some more borders and then some quick quilting.
The tutorial is from Cluck Cluck Sew go here.
I hope maybe I have inspired you to try this great pattern too.
Hope you have all been busy.

Cheers Stacey
