We're adding to our collection of interesting Art Gallery fabrics for you to choose from. The fabrics are part of a collection called Nightfall, but rather than using them all together, I think they are so lovely on their own, you could easily pair these with other pieces such as spots, stripes, or even an interesting floral or geometric. Art Gallery fabrics are imaginative and so you can be too when it comes to choosing your fabric pieces.
We have some new advent calendars that have recently arrived. There are clear instructions on the side of the panels to help you make these lovely gifts for someone special this Christmas. The Sophie Advent Calendar has bright colours on a white background while the Snow Village Calendar is more earthy with traditional colours. Also arriving with the calendars were some new Christmas fabrics with gentle designs of trees, reindeers, and snowflakes. Now is the time to get moving on those special hand made gifts for Christmas because they really are the best gifts.
For the Bittersweet Blog Hop Hettie's Patch created the Hexagon Kite Quilt. To get your free instruction sheet (which includes your fabric requirements), please click the button below.
Sue Daley has a new range of fabric available called 'Bittersweet'. She has invited designers to create a project from this range and has organised a blog tour to show off everyone's ideas. Hettie's Patch is always up for a challenge and so we have created a quilt that includes paper piecing and applique. We love the luminescence of the florals and geometrics of this range and we have paired this with the Riley Blake basics and some thin stripes from the Bittersweet range to create a harmonious single bed quilt. Each block consists of a plain or thin stripe background with a starburst made from a hexagon and double kites. The joins are then overlaid with a dark six pointed star. The finished quilt size is 50" x 78" and we will have a free pattern available soon on our website (we just have to write it up).
Judy Newman is coming to Adelaide again to teach at Hettie's Patch. If you follow her on Instagram (judynewman), you can see a broader picture of her work over time and the beautiful details and ideas that she has. She is a fantastic teacher and you will come away from her class with a new way of looking at pattern and colour and some new techniques too. It's a lovely way to spend a weekend, and a great treat to learn something new. The weekend workshop will be held on 17th & 18th of September from 10am-4pm each day, and lunch, morning tea, and afternoon tea are included on both days. The total cost of the workshop is $220, and if you like, you can secure your place with a $50 deposit in our online shop, or you can contact the shop on 8346 0548 to pay by credit card. We would love to see you there!
