We have been very busy making lots of delicious new quilts and small objects of desire for Precious Time At Abbie Lane.
Jess has made these gorgeous little cupcakes from the new Kaffe Fassett collection that has just arrived in store. Complete with a little covered Japanese fabric button on top they would make a lovely gift for a quilting friend.
Majella has finished quilting not one but two quilts - City Blocks is a stunning modern quilt that would be perfect for a young couple just starting out together and Stepping Stones made from Joel Dewberry's Notting Hill is just so lush, especially with his divine Poppy voile on the back making it ever so soft on your skin.
Kyleigh has been just as busy producing gorgeous samples for her next Gift of Love class. Class mate and Brigitte's Bagettes are new patterns to the shop and we have kitted them up in two colour ways (for the moment) - although every time I cut a fabric I think ooh that would be nice in the class mate set. If you would like to make these fantastic little additions for your sewing basket then join Kyleigh on Saturday 13 April for her class. This is a perfect class if you struggle with zips or are in need of a little refresher. You are always guaranteed of a lovely day with Kyleigh and her ladies. Please be aware this class will be held at Precious Time
David & Holberton Sts, I hope you can join us.
I hope that you had a lovely Easter weekend - I actually got some time to catch up on some sewing which was just wonderful. I had what seemed like a mountain of bindings to stitch, not only for customers but also for the shop - I do have to say it was still so nice to have needle and thread in my hand.
Sitting at the shop over the weekend I worked on a hexagon quilt that I have fallen in love with - it is an antique quilt with a delightful story that captured my heart - the only problem is that I can't find the quilt book at the moment (lost in the book case) - I am determined to keep searching so that I can share the story and original quilt with you all. Wish me luck!
The rain has started once again - where was Summer? Always longing for what we desire......... Happy stitching
