L is for...

My new pattern is almost ready.

Just in time for Valentines Day.
But if you're not feeling the love this year, maybe this is more for you.

And then there's this one...

This pattern includes the whole alphabet so you can make your own creation, and although I turned my panels into cushions these could make fabulous wall hangings or even the beginning of a quilt.
Lucy took these photos yesterday in the sunshine, so this one must have snuck in between cushion shots!

I think these should be ready to go by tomorrow afternoon, so keep an eye out for them in store and online.

guess what

I've been busy.
Tied to my sewing machine, busy.

It's finally together. My next Block of the Month, Gypsy Wife. This one has been a bit of a journey for me. I broke my shoulder about a quarter of the way through designing it, commencement was pushed back and I know people have been patiently waiting... but here it is. It's just the quilt top, I know and some loose thread are still popping out of seams but it's done!

This quilt is wild! Has a real vintage quality to it and reminds me of something you'd find in a Gypsy's caravan... hence the name!

Lucy is signing up people now for this one.
It's a 12 month program at $40 per month including postage and handling ($45 for our International fans), I have about 98% of the original fabrics put aside for this one so pretty much what you see is what you get!
It's designed to be put together by machine and the instructions will be written this way but I will also include hand piecing templates for my hand sewers!

Desperately seeking

To all my creative and clever customers (I hear flattery will get you everywhere), I need your help is locating some fabrics and I am hoping that somebody, somewhere will help us out from their stash!

First, this lovely Liberty of London. Just a small 20 cm cut is needed.
Second is  a Kaffe Fassett.

This one is going to quite an incredible quilt we've shown before on the Amitie blog. Here's an update of Christine's 'Insanity'.

If you happen to have either of these fabrics in your stash, please get in touch with us either by phone or emails.
Thank you in advance!
