Some new fabric love, and a finish

Just had to share some of my recent purchases.
I dare anyone to walk past and not think these turtles and trees are the cutest things around. They just define cuteness in my book. And of course, being the selvedge collector I am, my heart went flip flops when it saw this one. 
Yep, this is "Little Apples" by Aneela Hoey for Moda, and it's just the cutest!

Now, if you haven't heard of Umbrella Prints, it's a South Australian textile company producing some gorgeous and yummy prints. Check out their blog and website for some more eye candy, but here are three of their lovely fabrics. I just adore the colours - so fresh, so yum.

And finally? Well, with Christmas only *counts* nine and half weeks away *gasp* I'm getting into the festive mood. This is such a sweet range of fabric, and I'm looking forward to making a lovely table centre from these goodies. 

These fabrics are from the range 'Countdown to Christmas' by the brilliant Sweetwater

Hope you're recent fabric purchases have been as yummy as mine! 
All these fabrics were bought from work, the wonderful Patchwork with Gail B in Bayswater, VIC.

And to finish off my little post - a little quilt! I made this quick and easy cot quilt last week, specifically as a donation for our church Youth Group fundraising dinner. It was auctioned off and sold for $200, so that's pretty sweet! 

I really like the colours and fabrics in this quilt, and had quite an enjoyable time making it. It's a simple stacked coins pattern, which looks great. But I think I love the border the most - it's just too darn cute.
