Rambling Rose is the latest fabric range from Moda designer Sandy Gervais - soft, muddy pastels with delicate designs that will take you back in time to your Grandmothers garden.....
This range is the perfect accompainment for Natalie Bird's new pattern due in store this week called "Bluebird Lane"
Also arriving this week was a funky range from Maude Asbury titled "Geofabulous" - a celebration of shapes and symmetry in a range of vibrant colours grounded with touches of grey and taupe. The designs include happy chevrons, dimensional prism prints in a rang of turquoise, pink, navy, orange and lavender. Great mix and match prints that you will just love using in your latest project.
and just because I can here is a giant size piece of my absolute favourite print.....
I absolutely love it and can't wait to use it.....
This past week we have seen some gorgeous quilts come through the store....
Margo has made Laundry Basket Quilt's fabulous Umbrella quilt - measuring 90" square there are 100 happy, vibrant umbrellas flying around this quilt.
Anna celebrated her 21st birthday in the past week and brought in Raspberry Slice made by her mum Patrina...
Made from Le Bouquet Francais it is a very elegant quilt that will hold much love and many memories from sharing Anna's life.
Anita brought in her stunning half square triangle quilt to choose a backing in readiness for quilting - it is a gigantic 115" x 90" - made for a friend for her King size bed....
Also on her design wall (ours when this image was taken) wall this week is Figgy Pudding made from Treelicious - another great range from Maude Asbury.
We made this quilt a few Christmas' ago in country colours and it is so lovely to see it made in these fresh, happy colours. Super quick and fun to stitch up - it will look fabulous hanging in Anita's house celebrating Christmas with her and her 6 boys
I have been working on some of my Marg Sampson quilts and am extremely happy to have all the handles appliqued down on my baskets.....
There are a million flowers to be be appliqued down so I am sure that will slow me down a little.
I have also been working on my Not Levens Hall quilt and have my 7 centre hexie lozenges complete and ready for the pathway to be chosen - something yummy may have arrived at the store today - yes I will be sharing later in the week.....
With Christmas not too far away we have started working on decorations, projects, quilts for the store window.
This was such a pleasure to make and if you would like to make this bunting here are some quick measurements and basic instructions to help you along the way
Background Fabric - 10.5" square
Tree Fabrics are all 1.5" wide and measure
I attached the strips of fabric to the background using a 1/4" double sided tape. I didn't want to use vlisofix and make them to stiff.
I then quilted them - I wasn't too particular about being perfectly straight or evenly spaced - after that I squared them to 10" and with some ready to go binding I stitched them ready for hanging.
I can't wait to see them in the window with all the other Christmas projects that we are working on - if all goes to plan we should be ready to share on December 2.
These little piles of deliciousness belong to Jenny - she is off on an adventure in a few weeks and is taking her Chapman blocks to alleviate that itch to stitch.
Here is hoping that you can stay cool and enjoy creating those projects that make your heart sing
Until next time happy stitching.......lisa
