Koala Quilt

Koala wonky star blocks

I have spent the last week with a boring cold/sinus infection which has really slowed down my crafting (and everything else).  Right before I got carried away with Jodie’s Rag-Rug-Along, I started making these blocks for a new quilt, using the Koala fabric that I designed and had printed by Spoonflower.  The co-ordinates are all out of my stash – I am really enjoying this colour combination!

pretty scraps

Gosh, I even think the scraps look pretty, very restful.

This quilt is actually a commission of sorts – I am making it for my sister’s nephew, for his 1st birthday.  He lives in the country, and is from my brother-in-law’s side of the family, I have never met him.  I feel pretty safe putting progress shots here, because I doubt his family read my blog, my sister and brother-in-law do though, (I hope you like it Al and Scott).

Blue Wonky Star with Koala

This quilt is going to be the same design as my Fairy Tale Star Quilt, with almost all of the stars either blue or brown, with the blue koala fabric as the centre of the star.

Brown Wonky Star with Koala

Just one of the stars has a different coloured centre – another colour-way of my koala fabric.

Yellow wonky star with Koala

And here it is, surrounded by yellow.

Hopefully I will get a bit more done now that I am feeling better, but who knows – it’s the school holidays after all.

  1. Claire, it looks simply amazing. You must be feeling really proud of yourself and if it were me, a little smug too!!
