These gorgeous stacks of fabrics are new into the shop and are a mix of Blueberry Crumb Cake by Blackbird Designs and American Banner Rose by Minick and Simpson. The delightful blues, creams and tans are a perfect mix of fabrics for your next quilt receipe. I have always loved two colour quilts but have never made one – red & white, blue & cream or pink & green. Looking at these fabrics you can only agree with the dynamic duo from Blackbird – they are tasty and would make the perfect Blueberry Crumb Cake, although I couldn’t help myself – I would have to make a Blueberry Crumble. So here is something you should know I am not a great cook – I wish I were – but I stumble through the week cooking the regular kid friendly meals. My DH has asked that I don’t experiment with new menus, especially when they are all hungry after a day of work and school. Why you ask – one night I cooked a new receipe given to me by my mum and instead of a teaspoon of chilli I used a tablespoon of chilli. It was so hot they couldn’t eat it and I had left them to go to class unaware of the chaos I had left behind. I think I could manage a blueberry crumble though!
So I may not be a great cook but I can sew ……… ta dah the modern cabin made with the scrumptious mix of blues and creams and in doing so have made my first two colour quilt.
Our superstar of the week is Christina, pictured below holding her gorgeous quilt, which her mum made for her. They were both in the shop today to choose borders and binding so it can be quilted to lie on her bed either at home or uni.
Also new in the shop is a collection of fabrics - Indian Summer from Laundry Basket Quilts. The moody blue floral is my favourite with the birds taking advantage of the fading blooms before they welcome the autumn months.
I have fabric lust for this following stack. Majella will tell you that I have never really loved yellow/mustard/gold and always reject it when sifting for my final palette. It wasn’t until a very clever customer (you know who you are) was mooching around the shop and started collecting some of these soft golden yellows for a friend. I had fabric lust – yes lust because I just couldn’t let go of them to put them back on the shelf – they have been sitting beside my cutting bench for over a week ..…some have been added and so they continue to wait I’m not sure why - but maybe they were just waiting to be shared…………I hope you fall in lust with them too.
Hope you are all embracing the joy of the Christmas season.........it is a most wonderful time of the year...........till next time.....lisa
