Shop Gossip

Have you seen the Sneak Peeks that Channel 7 has been running for its new Aussie drama Wild boys?  Well if you are inclined to watch the show, Quiltsmith was very much involved in dressing one of the leading ladies, we believe it is the mayor's daughter, as well as many of the extras.  The costume people discovered our shop and couldn't believe the reproduction fabrics they could purchase.  2m for a blouse and 6m for a skirt. 

So as you follow the story keep an eye out for the odd Judie Rothermel or Nancy Gere print.  This could add a whole new level of interest.  So far all the females in the Sneak Peeks appear to be in their underwear.  I wonder who the target audience is...

We are cooking up two new Block of the Months at the moment.  I can give you a Sneak Peek at one of them.

It is an applique tour de force, called Friends of Baltimore.  We are playing around with the normal BOM fabric format at the moment. I suspect anyone accepting this challenge probably has a bit of a fabric stash at home.  My aim is to have this new BOM up on our web-site over the next week.  I would love your feedback on how we structure the BOM.

On Saturday we had a small but fun Kaffe & Kim Workshop reunion.  Here are the photos.

I really like this quilting pattern.

All the above quilts are Ross's, and they are so nice.  The Bordered Diamond quilt below is Ross's from the workshop.

This is one of Janet's Garden party blocks.

Look what Catherine Butterworth did with her Bordered Diamonds.  Wow!

Catherine brought along her new quilt which she will be teaching in November.  (It has no name at the moment.)

Look at these quilts that dropped by and visited the shop.

Rosemary made this stunner based on a Sue Ross template.  Look at her current project, blocks for her Googley Eyes quilt she started in a workshop here with Catherine Butterworth.

See you in the shop.
