guess what

I've been busy.
Tied to my sewing machine, busy.


It's finally together. My next Block of the Month, Gypsy Wife.
This one has been a bit of a journey for me. I broke my shoulder about a quarter of the way through designing it, commencement was pushed back and I know people have been patiently waiting... but here it is. It's just the quilt top, I know and some loose thread are still popping out of seams but it's done!


This quilt is wild! Has a real vintage quality to it and reminds me of something you'd find in a Gypsy's caravan... hence the name!


Lucy is signing up people now for this one.
It's a 12 month program at $40 per month including postage and handling ($45 for our International fans), I have about 98% of the original fabrics put aside for this one so pretty much what you see is what you get!
It's designed to be put together by machine and the instructions will be written this way but I will also include hand piecing templates for my hand sewers!


If you're interested call the shop on (03) 95967225 or e-mail Lucy at amitie@amitie.com.au

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 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!
