"Show and Tell" is always exciting, we love it when we see a quilt come through the door, all ready for us to have a sticky beak at...so, thanks to Karin for sharing her very sophisticated eye spy quilt, made for her Grandson...Karin has designed this quilt with lots and lots of great images that will keep her grandson entertained for hours...plus it it such a happy colourful quilt.
And just look at this absolutely stunning quilt, made by Robyn...we have enjoyed Robyn's visits to the shop as she has collected all the fabrics she used for her "Civil War Sampler", made from Barbara Brackman's fantastic book. Robyn has put so much care into choosing all her fabrics and we bet you will all love the result as much as we do.....Robyn thank you for sharing, your quilt is just beautiful.
We still have Barbara Brackman's book, "Civil War Sampler" in stock if you have been inspired by Robyn's quilt. It is a great book, with patterns for 50 blocks and lots of great stories from the Civil War.
Have you ever been half way through a quilt and just wished you had a design wall so you could stand back and see your work in progress.....well look at this great fabric we have so that we can all have our very own design wall....this fabric is flannel so blocks will stick well as you stand back to admire your work, it has a handy grid print and is a good neutral colour.... at $24.00 mt is is a great affordable way to have a handy design wall and easy to store if you don't have room to leave it hanging.
We just want to say hello to Margaret and Sofia who came all the way from Brisbane for a visit...they wanted a photo to show all their sewing friends they had been to Threadbear...so here is the proof...thanks for visiting us, hope we see you on your next visit.
We have just received two new copies of Japan's famous patchwork magazine "Patchwork Tsushin". Both editions have lots of small projects including some really cute bags to make.
Well it looks like Sammy is checking out the diary to see what we have coming up.
