Moda Moda Moda

This week saw the arrival of a lovely big box of Moda fabrics, and as we tore open the boxes Paintbox Prints from Laundry Basket Quilts revealed itself.
Few words are required, except to say...feast your eyes on this GORGEOUS fabric.
Paintbox Prints is full of large rich florals, pretty pretty smaller florals, and is a stunning range

Imagine the excitement for all the fussy cutting fans out there. Your scissors will be itching to get into the large prints & florals in this look at all four colourways & you will be snipping away with delight.

Perfect Curved Scissors
 With the arrival of a fabric so perfect for fussy cutting it seems like a good time to mention an addition to the Karen Kay Buckley scissor range, new to the shop. They are the Perfect CURVED Scissors at $27.50. These are our new favourite scissors for clipping threads, and cutting curved applique shapes.perfect for fussy cutting. Their short, micro serrated blades are just right for clipping tricky shapes, trimming close to fabric seams, or cutting away stabiliser. They are comfortable,easy to handle, sharp and beautifully weighted scissors; well worth tying out next time you are in Threadbear.

Threadbear for bandanas
We had to take our mind off the fussy cutting potential of Paintbox Prints this morning when Christopher popped into Threadbear for some help in choosing his latest bandana. Christopher is a photographer,and was on his way to photograph a local wedding...he will have smiles all round from the wedding party with such a groovy bandana...great fabric choice Christopher..Threadbear is indeed the "go to" destination for all your bandana needs.

Castlemaine Appliqué Group will be meeting again tomorrow, and as always we expect another big day for all and the promise of some great photos next week from our show and tell and the launch of Di Fords book, "Primarily Quilts".  And of course another chance for Sammy to catch up with all his sewing friends.
Moda Moda Moda..what about a pat
