Just a bit of a blog post to catch you up on some Amitie related subjects.

I have a lot of new quilt patterns coming out soon. I am still in the finishing off stages and Lucy is currently getting the patterns organised for you so stay tuned!


You've probably read about it on Lucy's blog but we have a new look to our website, and I think it's a lot easier for customers to use. Lucy thinks that it's easier to load onto as well so this means we'll be able to load new product for all our not-so-local customers to see!

All the new Liberty of London is online, and today we finished loading our range of solid colour voiles and also our range of Flea Market Fancy (what's left of it)!

We've also added a sale section to the website where we will be putting discounted stock occasionally. We've decided to sell of some of our cute novelty prints at $15.00 per meter to celebrate our new website!
We're no longer offering free postage on online sales, but we strive to keep our postage and handling fees as low as possible. This means we'll be able to offer more online sales so it's not all bad news!

Now, an update on our Stash Club and Liberty Addicts. We've received lots of e-mails asking if you're still able to join and the answer is OF COURSE! This is an ongoing club, so you can sign up at any time! It just means you may have missed the first mail out, but you'll get the next one and so on!
Stash Club happens every second month, so the next mail out is in August.


Liberty Addicts happens 4 times a year, and even though the we only mailed out the first every Liberty Addicts mail out last month we're already planning the next one!


I've saved the most exciting news for last.
It's been a long journey to this point but I am so excited to say it's at the printers.


Hope you all enjoy your weekend.

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!
