new BOMs

We will be launching our 2 new Block of the Month programs at the end of August - thought I might pop a bit of a sneak peak online for all to see.

My new block of the month isn't completed yet. For those that haven't heard on the grape vine, I have fractured my right shoulder so of course progress on sewing projects has come to a stand still. But I can show you what I have done.

This quilt has been designed so that you can either hand or machine piece it. It's called 'Gypsy Wife' and is $40 AUD per month ($45 AUD if you live overseas, which I know some of my BOMers do). It's a 12 month program.

The other BOM is called The Aunts Quilt and is designed by Gina Gregory, one of the many talented staff here at Amitie.
 This quilt is very beautiful with a lovely mix of applique and pieced blocks. It too is $40 AUD per month ($45 AUD for O/S) and is a 12 month program.

If you'd like to join either or both of these Block of the Month programs please call the shop on (03) 9557 8551 or you can e-mail us at
Places are limited so get in quick!

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!
