Sometimes a bolt of fabric will be delivered, on it's own, and it's pretty special. Not only because we can't remember ordering it, but knowing that we must have because it's so interesting. It's like a little gift that we knew we'd love to have one day.
We think Margaret Sampson-George is a bit of a star and now we have the papers to prove it! The new Imprezzio papers, templates, and I spy templates to make 'Marg's Star' are in the shop. There are three different sizes 3/4", 1", and 2" papers. The 3/4" papers are in a pack that contains enough papers to make twelve stars, the 1" pack of papers will make eight stars, and the 2" papers will make four stars. Fabulous!
The quilt we will be making in the weekend workshop in August will be a brand new design from Kathy's new book which is coming out next year. I cannot divulge the finished project, but I can paint you a picture if you can spare a moment.
Imagine a small gathering of colourfully dressed girls in dappled forrest sunlight. The sky is warm, the leaves are green, the party dresses are their favourites. The trees are filled with birds and curiosities. Gather your materials with your own story in mind to make the creation your own. Is your forest path light and airy or is it sinister and dark? Are your party dresses ethnic, traditional, or modern? What lives in your trees? Let your imagination go wild!
When you pick up your requirements list, we will give you further details of the project. If you would like to join us, you will truly create a quilt that is filled with your choice, your curiosities, and your imagination.
Helen, who works at Hettie's Patch, has whipped up another quilt. Honestly, I don't know where she finds the time, I'm not sure she sleeps. Anyway, this quilt is from the new magazine we have called 'Creative Stash and Scrap Quilts', and the quilt pattern is called 'Funky Tumblers'. These fabrics (by AnnaMaria Horner, Amy Butler, and Alison Glass), look fabulous in this pattern. The pieces are big enough to show off the large prints and also the repetitive pattern of the small prints alike. All she needs to do now is quilt it.
This is a stabilising fabric spray that we have in stock. It will keep your fabric from fraying, making it paper-like, and then it will wash away so that your fabric is soft again. Useful for projects such as machine embroidery, inkjet printing on fabric, or art quilting to name a few.
