Well its a new year and lets show you some of our first fabrics for 2012.
"Josephine" by Petra Prins for Windham Fabrics, beautiful reproduction 1800's Dutch fabrics.
This is the first fabric Collection by Petra Prins, who is the author of the very popular "Treasures from Holland" book. These fabrics are perfect for the quilts in her book.
"Haven" by Anna Griffin. Anna has started her own fabric design house, just called Anna Griffin Fabrics. Stay tuned for lots of new fabrics from Anna.
I just love this new Collection from the V&A Museum, its called "Benedictus". I'm not sure of its date, could be anywhere from 1920s to 1950's. The colours are wild, and the peacocks magnificent. There are three fabrics in each colourway.
These are the other colours.
Now for a Summer School update.
Day 2 of Anne Sommerlad's Antique Nine Patch. Looking very busy.
Not so very antique.
Here's Sharon's (who was in the class) quilt from Summer School last year. Her version of Liz Pinczewski's, No Tears Foundation Piecing quilt. Looks good.
Then we have Kim Bradley's, Fresh Flowers class yesterday. This class wins the busy award so far for Summer School. Everybody jumped right in and started sewing.
Here are some of their Hexagons.
Pene dropped into the shop to show us her completed Flower Garden top. She was in our Kim Mclean Workshop last February. I think it is just beautiful. This is one of the quilts on my
To Do list this year.
