winners... yes, plural!

Thank you to everybody who played along in what I think is my first blog giveaway.
I loved reading all the comments so much. Got some great ideas and also a few laughs!
I got the Amitie Girl herself to randomly pick a winner out of the hat so here it is...

Congratulations FRENCHIE who said: Oragnisation is key. My girlfriends and I organise a monthly session dedicated to a nice homemade lunch and an afternoon of all types of sewing. We call it Crafternoon!

I loved this giveaway so much that I have decided to giveaway a SECOND PRIZE!
I have a Jelly Roll for this prize from the same range as fat 1/4 bundle. It's my favorite comment that will win this prize so...
Congratulations to KAREN WILSON who wrote: I think my survival tactic is: don't do the housework!! I only do things that need doing, hence we have a walk-in-robe that you can't walk in because there are clean clothes all over the floor and stuff like that. Means I'm a lot more sane!

We call that a Floordrobe in my house Karen!
Frenchie and Karen please e-mail us at with your address so we can get your prizes to you.

Thanks again to everybody who played a long. This might have been the first giveaway but it certainly won't be the last!

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 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!
