Beautiful Salt Lake City

 This is a really beautiful city. I open the curtains each morning and there are the mountains right in front of me.

 Quilt market is a busy place. Here we are day one all full of anticipation at what we may see within. I have purchased some great things to bring back so everyone can be excited

 The gorgeous Kellie and Jan from "Don't look now" were very busy and below is one of Kellies designs on display at a quilt shop I visited in the Utah Valley

 I also had the pleasure of spending time with my friend Sue, and her stand as always, stood out in the crowd.

 Sue has designed a wonderful new ribbon range, so have a look next time you are in our store as I have ordered the full range.

Thank you Jennifer, Elizabeth, Sue, Kelly, Melissa and Cathy for a scrumptious dinner and fun night in general. I bought a sewing project with me but I have been so busy socialising I haven't done a stitch. It has been a wonderful few days. I am sorry the photos are a little dull but I am working from my baby laptop and I have realised I don't have an editing program I can access

Delilah - Lucy's Journey - Part 1

A fair while ago, when working through the Delilah patterns I thought "yeah... I might just make this".
After a quick brain storm with the Boss Lady/Mum, I decided why not! But it has to be different, we thought because we have no use for 2 quilts that look very similar. So, what could I do? That's when my eyes landed on my always growing stash of Liberty.
March arrived and so did our stock of templates, and off I went...
My, my, my Delilah.

You have brought me to a few firsts so I think some confessions need to me made.

1. I have never pieced a curve.

Nope...  No sir! Not one.
Curves have always scared me. I could never wrap my head around them but the Boss Lady...

She loves them!

I mean... she really LOVES them!

Or maybe she just loves cruel and unusual punishment like this block?!
Just an idea.

Curves conquered.
But wait, there's more (confessions and curves!)

2.  I don't* own an iron.

Ha. Yup!
I managed to get to a few days shy of 30 years old without…

Delilah - Lucy's Journey - Part 3

Hello friends,
Half way into this quilt and with every stitch I fall more and more in love. With each block completed, I drag all my blocks out again and lay them out. I posted this image recently on Instagram (@lucycarsonkingwell) of my 'Design Floor' to gauge where it's all heading and it's looking okay!!

Delilah has been a test - I have learnt many new skills and it is definitely the most technical quilt I have taken on to date... but it's not hard! The templates are fantastic. I swear working with acrylic templates makes it quite challenging to go back to temp-plastic! These templates are ensuring my blocks come out correct, every time.
Month 5 brought us North Star. "Woo hoo. Straight lines!" I hear the masses cheer as they open their mail!
I knew it was time to start focusing on other colours other than pink and aqua. I tend to gravitate towards these two colours because they seem to go with everything to me... especially in the Liberty of London f…

A little eye candy

A very lovely, Susan, e-mailed us her version of JKD Green Tea and Sweet Beans.

We love it!
She made it at a shop in USA called Sewing Party. Amazing!
