childrens quilts

This fabulous number was made by Tina for a little person who loves Mr Men. A mixture of applique, embroidery and some 9 patch blocks.

These quilts were made by the children at a local kindergarten as a fund raiser. A great idea....each child picked pre cut shapes and arranged them and decorated them. A very clever mummy sewed them and then made quilts to auction on the night. Things have progressed since my children were at kinder. I got smelly ( not in a good way) soap from the fundraiser stall and had to bake dozens of cakes!!

Love the Little Mister quilt! I would love to know where I could purchase either fabric or machine embroidery software for the Little Miss and/or Little Mister characters! Are they available only in AU or England? Thanks.... Sally

Sally, Tina just made these up using the images from the books and hand embellished them.

Then I am even more impressed with Tina and her quilt. I've done a little digitizing but not sure if I could manage to do several of the characters. I have the books so maybe I will try to applique some of them. Thanks for the info!

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…
