Quilts and Swancon

Have managed to get up to date with washing and sorting my fabrics!  Came across some interesting stuff while going through this process, which I think I might have bought with the Swancon art show (or maybe a market stand depending on time for production) in mind. :)
So opinions?  What sort of quilts/quilted products might you like to see at Swancon or just made up by Jemima Quilts?  (eg lap/baby/kids quilts, wall hangings, cushion covers, tote/library bags...)
To give an idea I have some other colour lines of "Thunderblossom" which I made a quilt out of a couple of years ago:
I also have steampunk style Alice in Wonderland fabric, Hello Kitty and My Little Pony, Russian dolls and cute Japanese fabrics...
Any thoughts, ideas, requests and feedback welcome!

Kinesthetic learning

As a teacher I have long been fascinated by learners who do not learn easily in traditional book, read, repeat, memorise kinds of ways but rather need music, movement or visual stimulation to made concepts clear or interesting.  I think it is valuable for all learners actually and have since discovered myself that while I do learn just fine in the traditional ways I actually learn well with musical and visual cues.
Anyway, this little blog entry highlights how much fun learning can be using movement and how the movement itself is very valuable.  So thought I might share...

Unicorn quilt

More info on my quilting blog to follow but the recipient may look there so for now will just share here...
Iordered some material from a lovely designer on Spoonflower for this as they wanted "unicorns and rainbows" for their soon to be born baby girl and do you know how hard unicorn (particularly juvenile) fabric is to get at the moment? :) The colours seemed really bright on the computer but were more muted in real life, however they were still really sweet and made a beautiful sorbet coloured quilt.  It was a quick project - it just needed a border and a backing which I had in my stash and some quilting to define the squares.  No wonder it is called a
cheater quilt!  I self bound it with the daisy backing just to make it come together even faster as it has a plane to catch with the proud grandparents very soon...


A read in inside cover (as others probably did) that Whitfords shopping centre made a bit of a faux pas by advertising the first appearance of their Santa at 11am on Sunday 11 November.  Oops.  Apparently a typo and it was meant to be 11.30am.  All well and good except we happened to be driving past the centre on Sunday and saw the following flashing sign. It scrolled:
Who says grammar isn't important? Or maybe they weren't that sorry about Santa turning up at 11am after all...:)
