2010 Bring it on!

I hope you have all had a great start to the new year. I love this time as most of us can find a few spare hours to catch up on some stitching. Michelle popped in with her "camelot" BOM from last year. She changed her background fabric and added an applique border. It looked fantastic. Michelle is great with colour and design and we are lucky to have her join our teaching staff this year running studio workshops on Thursdays starting Feb. I will pop the new dates on the class list soon.

Brenda also has been busily working on her "camelot". A lover of red is Brenda and it changes the quilt incredibly. I really like the way people make these quilts their own.

Juliette deep in thought.

A littler help from Gwen. I think we will need to convince Gwen to do another class as the dress making is proving very popular. You need to book quickly if you are thinking of joining in. Hopefully you are finding some YOU time and enjoying the lovely summer weather.

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!
