 Laura has used the gorgeous Alexander Henry Christmas fabrics to make this beauty

 Karen and Glenda were picking borders for Museum Medallion in class. What a difference colour choices make. Same quilt but very different

 Jo whipped up the Side by Side quilt for her nephew. Lucky boy.

 The market skirt so beautifully modeled by our headless and nameless ( by choice) customer. How cute is her preggie tummy?

and this fabulous quilt made by Carolyn. Unfortunately the photo does not do the quilt justice. I am so looking forward to the Christmas break where I will have 4 days off in a row. As usual I am planning to get 45 projects done in this time!! It is so nice when there is not a lot to do after all the Christmas cleaning (boy do I have a lot of this to do before though) and cooking has been attended and we can all have a rest and relax. We will be closed only on the Public Holidays so if you are nearby please call in and say Hi. Our summer hours will be 10am -4pm mon-Sat.

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.
PERFECT!
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 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!
