Busy Busy Busy

April 3rd, 2017

Ann from Dorset has been very very busy and she's shared some photos with us of the delightful projects she's been working on.


(Clockwise from top left)

  • Ann's successful first try at this technique for her first grandchild. (if you want to learn how to make raggy edge quilts - check out our workshop with Gail Penberthy)
  • Christmas fun using foam for the first time - a fabulous addition to any Christmas table, I'm sure you'll agree.
  • This quilt was a lovely wedding gift for her daughter in 2015
  • This was the professional quilting (with thanks to her talented friend Frances Taylor) for the accompanying pillows to her daughter's quilt before binding.

Thanks for sharing Ann!

Birthday present

April 2nd, 2017

5_lyn-b-table-runner Lyn wrote to us today to share this lovely table runner that she has just finished. It only took her two days to complete and just needs a label on the back then it is ready to be given to her friend for her birthday on Tuesday.

What a gorgeous piece it is and a lovely idea for a present.

If you want some ideas - why not browse the table runners available in the Shop - we have some made using Thangles and others using English Paper piecing. View more+

Thanks for the inspiration.
This was almost as quick to piece as simple 5 inch squares but more visually interesting outcome.

Kind regards,

Tumbler scrap - Valerie's new favourite shape

March 3rd, 2017

Here are two quilts and the original table runner that got Valerie inspired;


4_tumber-tablemat - Valerie Nesbitt - valerie



4_tumbler-1 - Valerie Nesbitt - valerie


4_tumbler-2 - Valerie Nesbitt - valerie


these were made using the paper template BUT since filming Valerie has found a template designed for use with the rotary cutter which is multi-sized - including for use with jelly rolls - so obviously there will be more!!
