Cooba Lane

Do you remember these fabrics I bought a few weeks ago?20140108-134958.jpg

And these piles that I’d cut and started to stitch?20140128-184600.jpg

They are now a quilt!

This is Cooba Lane!

20140226-153556.jpgThe fabrics are Emma Jansen’s first fabric range Terra Australis.

I adore this fabric! The colour saturation is perfect, the handle is soft and so easy to sew with, and the patterns…..the patterns!! They make me proud to be an Aussie! This has to be The Best Australian themed fabric EvEr!!

Just look at that border fabric… my colours!! Then there’s the Spinning Gums (my favourite!), Habour Bridge, Grevillea, and the Bush Sticks (hmmm, my second favourite I think!), plus the fabulous spots and stripes which round out the range perfectly!!

20140226-154432.jpgI loved using these fabrics, and loved making this quilt! And the best news is, there’s a second range from Emma on the way. Hold me back!!

Thanks Emma for designing a line of Aussie fabric that easily holds its own on the world stage!

Have you purchased any Terra Australis? What are you going to make with it?
