Today's Blog is Brought To You by The Letter H.

Yes....Hexagons, hexagons hexagons....we have all gone mad for hexagons.  We are all looking forward to a fabulous day tomorrow as we all gather together for our Spring Fling.  We already know that it will be a  huge day full of all sorts of fun, and hopefully some great photos for you next week of some of the fun.

In the goody bag everyone will receive on arrival tomorrow, will be three new patterns and starter packs for some small projects...and yes, you guessed it....they are all using hexagons...well of course.

A Partridge in a Pear Tree Notebook Cover by Corliss Searcey.

From Corliss we have this simply beautiful notebook cover, lots of great Hexagon sewing and a beautiful stichery for us to do as well...when this project is finished it will fit an A4 notebook....a very stylish way to keep all your design ideas and sewing notes in one place.

The Victorian Hexagon Bag by Virginia Enright.
From Virginia Enright we have the prettiest zip purse you will ever see....more gorgeous hexagons to piece using all your favorite colours... This bag is the perfect size for all our favorite sewing tools..and lots more besides...but be warned , if your friends know you have made this bag they will want you to make one for them too.

Annabelle's Handy Bag.
Annabelle's bag is designed to carry a medium sized plastic has carry handles so it will be great for just picking up your latest project and sewing where ever you find yourself....we all love a good container for our hexagons and at the moment we have a fantastic container in the shop...perfect divisions to separate colours and store lots of  hexagons ready for sewing and room for lots of sewing tools as well....and yes, this container does fit very nicely in Annabelles handy bag.

We have definitely saved the best for last...not only are we looking forward to our spring fling for hours of guaranteed fun but the big news of the day is the launch of Megan's newest quilt and pattern..."The Mary Stubbs Quilt".

The Mary Stubbs Quilt by Megan Carroll
Wow...this photo says it all...we can't wait to get our hands on this pattern.  Megan's quilt is named after Mrs Mary Stubbs of Harcourt, a local identity of the Harcourt Valley in Victoria, where Megan lives.  This quilt combines 19 th century design influences with beautiful  reproduction fabrics resulting in an antique style quilt befitting the great Mrs Mary Stubbs herself.

Megan's latest pattern is $35.00 and the starter packs with 60 fat 1/6 s of fabric, chosen by Megan in the colours used in her quilt is $95.00...
Megan has worked well into the night many times to have this quilt ready for us to enjoy...Congratulations Megan, your quilt is stunning.
All of our new patterns are available for sale and will be on our web site on next week.

We wish you all a wonderful weekend and we hope you all get lots of sewing time....maybe even sewing some hexagons. You can see that Sammy is in a hexagon mood along with the rest of us...but he thinks Corliss's hexagon notebook will be just perfect for his favorite doggy treat recipes.
