Turn on the Heaters

It's been a bit chilly in Sydney, that is an understatement.

This week we have a look at Anne Sommerlad's "Elizabeth Jefferson's Coverlet" class.  Anne has one border to go and her quilt top will be finished, I'll post a photo of the finished masterpiece.  But, have a look at the beginnings of six Coverlets from the class.

As with all good medallions you start at the centre and work your way out.  I think these centres are beautiful and can hardly wait to see the borders being added and the quilts growing.

Look at the close up of these two, the elegant reproduction and the funky bright.  Just shows how versatile a quilt can be.  This class runs every second Tuesday of the month if you would like to have your own version of beautiful Elizabeth's coverlet.

Now for something completely different.  Susan, in Anne's class showed off her batik Log Cabin. 

Up close the colours just glow.  Susan's daughter will be thrilled.

New in the shop this week are "Summer House" by Lily Ashbury.  Lily is a new designer for Moda and we like what has turned up.  The colour is just right.

"Sweet Emile" is Jo Morton's (Andover Fabrics) newest selection of must have Civil War blenders.  Overall, its a carmel brown collection, but with some lovely slate blues and warm pinks included.
