2012 has started with a bang. Now that Summer School is over most of our regular monthly classes have started up. There has been a lot of catching up with friends and show and tell. I am always impressed by the amount of quilting that can be done over Christmas.
So this week's blog is all about what's been happening in the shop.
New fabrics seem to be arriving a bit too often. Here are some photos to wet your appetite.
Barbara Brackman's new "1862 Battle Hymn" is a true representation of the period. This fabric would be great in the Civil War sampler quilts that are all the rage at the moment.
For something completely different, here is "Pam Kitty Morning" (interesting name) from Lakehouse. Channeling Cath Kitson. The black and red fabric is not part of the collection, but it's nice.
We have the latest release from A Day in the Country. Spots, checks and funny little patterns make up this collection.
All will be on the web-site shortly.
Had confirmation that the new Kaffe, Brandon and Phillip's fabrics will be delivered first or second week in March.
I have been sorting out fabrics for the last week or so to make new Civil War Fat Eighth Packs. I love this task (apart from the sore back) it is truly playing with fabric and colour. The photos are of my last colourway Brown. A big colour for Civil War fabrics.
Here is the end result. Check out our Civil War Fat Eight Pack Club on our web-site.
We had Linda Butcher's first class of the year.
This is Jenny's first quilt. Very impressive.
Get a load of these great African fabrics (bought on holidays, so no we don't have them) that Premilla loves.
This one is interesting, remember the pattern for the Sarah Johnson quilt, which was published in APQ at least 10 years age. Aileen has made her version using oriental fabrics, and it works really well.
This is a sneak peek at the quilt Linda is working on at the moment. Yummy.
There is more to come, I will post again tomorrow.
