A blast from the past ~

What a lovely surprise when Jo Donelan arrived this week with her Show & Tell.  Out of her bag came her Bowtie Quilt - quilted and bound ~ Finished!  Jo started it 10 years ago when we met at a Waverley Symposium and I was stitching my tiny blocks.  We drew up the templates for her and off she went.  Mine was inspired by a gorgeous antique quilt owned by Jan Gessin Baker shown at Threadbear's Quilt History Study group many years ago.  Yep - it will be quite a while until mine is ready to be shown.
Well done, Jo.  Wish mine was done!

Lovely new fabrics from one of our favourite designers, Judie Rothermel's newest collection of 'Dressing Gowns'.  Eight bolts in this collection ~ they won't last long.
Dressing Gowns ~ $24 per metre

More fabrics just in through our front door ~ four pieces of 'Winter Blessings' ~ yummy reds & greens.
Winter Blessings ~ $23.50 per metre

Our clever Megan has assembled a very tempting kit for 'Jane's Garden' ~ pattern by Di Ford Hall.  As we are choosing a range of sashings & borders for this one we have two options: the pattern & pack for everything excluding the border & binding @ $250 plus postage; or add another 2-3 metres and receive the border & binding as well.

Congratulations are in order!  Well done Margaret McDonald for your prize at the Sydney Quilt Show last week for your stunning quilt:  'Unified'.

Still more Dad?  I'm ready to go home!
Have a great weekend stitching on your favourite quilt.
