I am so happy that the world still goes on today, I'm not ready to stop sewing yet. I wonder if any of the survivalists packed some fabric and kit in their bags?
Anyway, we can all get on with the business of Christmas now.
Everybody at Quiltsmith would like to wish all our friends and quilters around the world a very Merry whatever you are doing. Heaven forbid this could be the one week of the year the sewing gets neglected and we all eat to much. We hope you all have fun.
Now some shop stuff.
Two beautiful new fabric Collections from Barbara Brackman.
Yes its the new William Morris Collection which may be of interest for those of you doing Barbara's current block of the week.
Our shipment of new Kim McLean patterns has arrived, so if you have been after one they are in stock now.
My Applique Project No. 3
Kim McLean' s Flower Garden quilt
You may remember before the weather turned cold I was working though my enormous pile of half finished quilts. Then they were all packed away so I could hand quilt. (I can only quilt in winter, I also did a bit of knitting this year). The big news is I finished the quilt I was quilting (well except for the binding). One ticked of the hand quilting pile. I will be showing this quilt at the Darling Harbour Show next year. So no photos yet.
I had finished all the applique blocks in my version of Flower Garden. Up they went on the design wall to work out what sashing the quilt needs. It is sorted and putting in the sashing is one of my "Missions" for the holidays.
The decision has been made, hopefully I can show you something when the shop re-opens.
QUILTSMITH WILL OPEN ON THURSDAY 10 JANUARY NEXT YEAR.
SEE YOU ALL NEXT YEAR AT SUMMER SCHOOL
