Quiltmania, Cheddars, and Madders

The latest issue of Quiltmania arrived last week and after sending it to all our subscribers, we still have plenty for the shop.  We're always one issue ahead of the newsagents so you can stay up to date with news, views, and quilting projects from around the world.  Issue 114 includes an 18 page special on this year's a Pour l'Amour du Fil exhibition in Nantes, France with so many beautiful quilts to look at you'll need a cuppa and a sit down!  You'll also find Petra Prins' Mystery Quilt - Part 4, plus 6 other fabulous projects to inspire you. Order your copy now ~ just phone us on 54721881.


Our shipment of Kona Eggshell fabric for Corliss' Celebrating Mary Brown quilt has finally arrived! We are now filling orders for this background fabric used in the centre blocks ~ just phone us to order yours
Centre blocks of Celebrating Mary Brown by Corliss Searcey ~ pattern, fabrics available.

We've had a little bit of a re-shuffle of some of our reproduction shelves recently.  Here's the shelf of Madders and Cheddars ~ both were popular colours for fabrics and clothing in the second half of the 19th Century  These colours tend to come and go from our shelves, but we have a nice selection at the moment ~ well worth a look.

It seems this week Sam has decided that Corliss' old Dresden Plate quilt is every bit as comfortable to snooze on as her grandmother's 1930's butterfly quilt!  In my next life - I'm definitely coming back as a Spoodle!  Have a great week everyone.
