the circle game

One of my favourite singers from the 70's was Joni Mitchell and my favourite song was the circle game. It seemed a natural when searching for a name for this years Block of the Month program. So this is it. We have some places left if you would like to join us. It is $40aud per month and runs for 12 months. We have had a lot of interest form OS and yes we will post but it is usually $45 per month for international postage. The quilt measures 182 cms (72 inches) square. I am madly quilting so when finished the edges will be a bit neater hopefully!

Well the fabrics have made it to the UK and my first circle is up on flickr - I've posted it in the Green Tea and Sweet Beans group for the moment. If anyone starts a Circle Game Group, I can post there instead. Lynne in the UK (P.S. fabulous fabrics!)

Hi jennifer, I am going to blog the BOM and wanted to check it was OK to use this photo in my post? Thank you, Lynne
I have admired this quilt since I first saw it. I am in the US - how much would it cost to join in American dollars? Thanks.

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…

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!


Well, no. Not really! It’s more the truth about Amitie.

We never write on this blog. We want to but it’s always at the bottom of the very long to do list and it gets bumped. Bumped to the next day, next week (maybe even next year going by the last post… eeek!)

So why now? Why this post? We keep hearing things on the quilty grapevine. Things we mostly laugh at amongst ourselves because they’re so silly. But, recently there’s been a few that have made me think that some of these rumours could be a little damaging to our little fabric store so I using this platform to set the record straight.

Here are the three biggies answered straight from the horse’s mouth (neigh!)!
“I heard you’re closing?!”
Never been on the cards.
How this started I do not know. Maybe because the building we are housed in sold, which is the truth but the little rumour that followed is just gossip. We will be moving ag…
