Pinks, Purples, Paisley and Pheasants!

Hello everyone, we hope you've been enjoying the change in season with the arrival of March, although here in Castlemaine the hot summer weather looks here to stay for a few more weeks. We were so pleased to receive the balance of our order of Bally Hall this week.  The last of our pre-orders have now been filled and we've replenished our shelves to complete the range again.  We now have the beautiful pink birds, borders, and pink background fabrics in stock  that we know so many of you were keen to order. Congratulations again to Di Ford-Hall on this stunning collection!
#1 Bally Hall $24.50m
#2 Bally Hall $24.50m
#3 a few from Bally Hall and Key West both by Di Ford-Hall.
Reproduction purples are often hard to come by so we were keen to add these lovelies to our shelves from Pam Buda's Antique Cotton ~ Old Plum Calicos .  The five we chose are all perfect stash builders with a mix of tone on tones and delicate prints of teal and soft red on plum/purple.

Is there any such thing as a bad paisley?  We don't think so!  Paisley prints are so useful for applique vases and urns, fussy cut piecing, birds and butterfly wings and tails, flower centres, or in larger setting triangles.  They even make a fabulous backing for any quilt.  This paisley is from The Golden Age by Nancy Gere and we can't wait to take a little piece home and start chopping it up!
#7 The Golden Age $25.00m
Don't forget our 25th BIRTHDAY SALE next week - in store and on-line. See our flyer below for all the details. Remember, the SALE lasts for 4 DAYS ONLY - Thursday 9th March - Sunday 12 March.

Did you miss out on these drop dead gorgeous pheasants and flowers last year when we had them in stock?  Well, we managed to get hold of another bolt of this timeless and much sought after fabric from Margo Krager's Pheasants & Traceries collection.  It's not likely to be repeated any time soon, so don't miss out!  
#8 Pheasant's & Traceries  $25.50m
 It seems everybody loves hexagons these days; big hexagons, small hexagons, and ridiculously small hexagons!  Their timeless appeal never seems to fade.  So Sammy enjoyed inspecting Virginia's beautiful half inch hexagons last week and offering his opinion on her color choice for her next border! Here's hoping you find some stitching time whatever your project may be. Have a great weekend everyone!
