Houston

We're back in one piece after our whirl wind trip. It's been a busy few weeks so I am finally getting to a blog post!

 Our booth went from this...


To this...

Me chatting to Becky Goldsmith!

The Circle Game Pattern.

Steam Punk and Carnival Patterns.


Georgetown on my Mind Pattern.
The Aussie's were out in force.
The girls from the Quilted Crow were there with a beautiful booth.



Same with Sue Daily from Patchwork with Busy Fingers.



One of the things I love most about visiting Market is getting a chance to catch up with my dear friends Sue Spargo and Wendy Morris. They had the fantastic Cathy and Kelly with them. We shared lots of meals and really got a chance to catch up!

Sue's Booth was beautiful, with so much to look at (I placed a huge order. We love unpacking the fantastic wools, threads and velvets. Lots of ooo-ing and ahh-ing).




Sue and Wendy have been busy little bees creating a fabric range for Robert Kaufman called Fokeloric Blooms. The section presenting their new range at the Kaufman booth was incredible!








I had an amazing time at the Kaufman Party with the girls. A few wines were had and then it was off to the photo booth!

 Kellie, Wendy and Sue

Collingwood themed feathers!

I can't wait to catch up with them all again.

The Quilt Show at Market is always a highlight. I will post photos soon of some of the quilts that caught my eye!

Happy Stitching,
Jen

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!
