Well our Mega Sale Day went off with a bang. We had a steady flow of customers all day which meant not too much waiting for you all. The weather was kind to us too, as regulars will know, it gets pretty hot in here in the humidity! Here is a picture of the shop not too long after we opened with our first enthusiastic quilters of the day.
We made Gail hold up her lovely red, black and cream oriental style quilt - she was looking for backing and binding for it.
It got a bit hectic after this, so didn't have time to stop and pull out the camera again. Hope you all enjoy your purchases.
We have a couple of 'sit and sew' groups here at Quiltsmith and this was Geraldine's Group, as we call it, last week, their last one for the year. Here is Rose with her version of Kaffe's Jewel Squares pattern. Looks pretty good don't you think?
Geraldine and Sondra were busy at the machine and hand quilting. While Linda was working that rotary cutter. Linda just flew in to collect her quilt which Verna managed to get done for her before Christmas, look at that border glow! It is Kaffe's Ombre stripe in Pastel believe it or not.
Hello everyone. Everyone at Quiltsmith would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Hi there! My name is Lindy and I will be helping with the Quiltsmith blog world. Here are a few pictures of customers quilts which have passed through the shop. With their permission, we will be regularly posting them here for your enjoyment.
First up is Anthony's Yorkshire Coverlet which is almost finished. Fabulous fresh reproduction colours make this a stunner version of this wonderful pattern. We have the pattern in stock, just give the shop a call.
Anastasia produced this extra cute and fun quilt for Alexander. Isn't it gorgeous? The Day in the Country solids would be perfect to use for something like this. Have a look on the website under Fabric Palettes to find them.
This is one of Diane's wonderful quilts she picked up recently. A beautiful version of the Jacobs Ladder block with a reverse colour block. See if you can work out which part is the actual block. Easy when you work that out!
Here is Diane's black, white and red snail trail block quilt. This photo does not do it justice. It looked stunning in the flesh!
As promised photos from the weekend. Not perfectly styled by any means but a taste of what was on show. if you missed Sunday we will be doing this again next year. Enjoy and check back later in the week for more.
Flamboyance, flair, style, élan, and elegance are all words that can easily describe Rosemarie Lavin’s newest collection; Paisley Panache. An eclectic mix of colour presents a dashing sense of spirited style. With her use of intricate teardrop shapes and delicate line work, Paisley Panache is a true modern classic.
The fussy cutting options with this range are endless and of course we carry all the requirements you might need.
Regular visitors to the store would know Marje who works here. Marje is quite prolific and on the weekend she had several of her works in progress with her looking for the perfect pieces of fabric to take them the next step.
First up this lovely applique block. Two are finished and it was time to start to think about sashings.
Next up is the lovely centre panel surrounded by a border started in a class with Anne.
