It's a final goodbye

After a number of years I have decided to retire my blog. This has been decided by difficulties with hosting via Google who seem to think I am a business and want to charge me accordingly. I have tried to address this with them but in the end I feel it is easier to close the blog. 
Thanks to everyone who followed me and emailed me over the years. I pin over at Pinterest look for me by name Olivia O'Sullivan or Little Quilter. I hope to see you over there.
Best wishes

Busy few months

I have not posted here for ages mainly because I have had so many projects on the go at the same time. I have been working on lots of sewing and decorating projects. Here are a few photos of projects completed recently, including an upcycled dining table, a newly decorated guest room and a completed quilt!

The Quilt Festival Birmingham

Had a great day here on last Thursday. The quilts were inspirational and the shopping was jaw dropping. I was determined not to buy more than for one project but ......... That is not what happened.. I did venture a good way out of my comfort zone and I have got a wide range of projects including very modern, very traditional some Japanese indigos and of course just a little American Jane . There were quite a few famous faces round as well as you will see in the little photo show!

A la Carte!

I was browsing on the American Jane website tonight and I just cannot wait to make some of the quilts from her new line A La Carte. It is in really zingy colours and I love it as much as I loved A Breath of Avignon. I am eagerly awaiting its arrival so I can make on of these beauties from her website! 
Have a lovely weekend ! Liv xx

Little Red !

I bought the red work panel and some of the fabric from Sandy Klop while I was in California. It is designed to be a block from a larger quilt but I adapted it to make a little red and white flag waving American Jane quilt!
It is cot or wall sized I do not know know where it is going to end up yet but it is my first quilt finish since my holidays. I have finished the Dresden quilt top for Susan but I am waiting on a backing fabric from Hancocks of Paducah to arrive so I can quilt it . 
In the meantime I have started another quilt top a scrap basket quilt from a kit I purchased from Sandy a few weeks back. It is going up fine so far I would love to get the top finished and the Dresden quilted before the 7th August as I am off to the UK then for three weeks to see my wonderful grandchildren and children!

Home and quilting

I have been sewing almost daily since I returned from a wonderful holiday in California. I have already made inroads into my American Jane fabric purchases making a new red and white quilt top featuring the America Jane logo.
In addition to this I have commenced a Dresden quilt for a lady called Susan who lives in Boston USA. 
I am loving working on this quilt, I have not made a Dresden quilt before so I have loved the opportunity to use lots of colour in this quilt.  Have a great weekend ! Liv x
