Fabrics, magazines, quilts, and pyjamas

Sam has been going the extra yard this week here at the shop filing our back-orders for Petra and Nel's Indian Rhapsody Dutch Heritage Border.  If you missed out earlier in the year, the good news is we still have some on our shelves.  You can order through the website or by phone.

Dutch Heritage border $25.00m
 This week we received the July/August Quiltmania magazine Issue #108. As always there is lots to read and look at so phone us if you would like a copy sent to you.  There are still copies available in the shop.

New fabric this week is Sophie circa 1820 - 1840 by Mary Koval.  There are 19 in all in a mix of bright teal, cream/off white, brown, red and yellow.
Sophie c1820-1840 $23.00m

We always enjoy meeting customers from interstate and putting a face to a name.  This week, Vicki from Adelaide came to visit and brought us her stunning miniature hexagon quilt (among others) to show us. From memory, these are all half inch hexagons.  The pattern came from an earlier Quiltmania magazine.  Congratulations Vicki - it's a stunner.
Then this morning Lesley brought in her finished Bartlet quilt (pattern available from Threadbear) which she made from the Shenandoah Valley range.  We LOVE the colours and especially the border Lesley!
And this week we have a sneak peek at some of Corliss' how and tell.  She is still powering away on applique blocks for her new quilt. And as always, her fabric choices and attention to detail are just beautiful.  I think this is probably the loveliest applique bird I've seen and the BEST use of what was a bit of a  shocker of a fabric. We can't wait to see this quilt finished!

While spring is only a month away and the first of Kurt's daffodils is flowering here in the courtyard at Threadbear, the winter winds are still blowing.  And we all know that winter nights are perfect for hand sewing by the fire, curling up with a good book, sipping a warm chocolaty drink OR....snuggling up in your NEW JAMMIES!!  Here is Sam sporting a very fetching ensemble of pumpkin and navy blue stripes, ready for bed.  He looks pretty darn happy with himself too! Have a great weekend everyone!.
