Seeing stars

We’ve finished a UFO!  We had completed the stars for our last pop-up shop but that was as far as we got before the pop-up shop popped!  We used a pattern from Moda’s Candy pattern book which is based on 2.5 inch squares and we combined some lovely French General with Moda Bella Solids .   It just needed the border added to finish the top.  We do seem to just ‘tweak’ patterns a little and this is no exception – we’ve added a small inner border to better frame our lovely stars.
We made our own 2.5 inch squares (which didn’t take long!) for the stars.  Making the points of the stars meant there were all these small triangles that were saying they needed to be sewn together.  Since they were already matched and ready to go, that’s exactly what we did!
We now have lots of these tiny squares (1.75 inches square) to use.  They would look good in the back of the quilt but we haven’t decided how to use them.  They’d look great in a cushion cover as well.  Decisions, decisions!
What would YOU do? – let us know!

Bundles of joy

We spent last weekend putting together a few new fat quarter bundles for the website starting with the most recent collections.

3bundlesCasablanca, Comma & Juggling Summer

Then we started to have some fun by mixing it up a bit…


with this Juggling Summer and Comma bundle – a great Zen Chic combo.

Then we added a few others …

You can see all our bundles here and if you come and see us at our next pop up shop at The Swan Hotel, Southwold on May 25th to 27th, you can make your own!

Salt Air & Tomato Soup

Here’s the latest in our bag collection – a little seasidey number from Kwik Sew made with Salt Air by Cosmo Cricket for Moda and a coordinating Bella solid in Tomato Soup.

Quiksew bag

As you can see the fabric is perfect for the beach and holidays and has a lovely vintage feel – here’s hoping for an Indian Summer!

We’ve also teamed up the three Salt Air fabrics and the Pond and Snow Bella Solids for a lovely fresh and breezy bundle.  The Bella Solids are excellent quality plain cotton with a high thread count and are also very competitively priced so when they’re added to a bundle it keeps the overall cost down which can’t be bad!

Salt Air with Bella Solids

There’s no limit to what you can get up to with solids –  this simple quilt pattern by Angela Walters would look great in these Bella Solids.

The new bag will be at our pop up shop in Southwold along with all the fabric and the Kwiksew pattern so come along and check us out if you can.  To all of you setting up for the Festival of Quilts today and all of you heading that way over the weekend – have a great time!
