Stay Cool

As you can imagine, whenever we get a book delivery from Quiltmania we are always excited to see what has arrived.
"The Red and Green Quilts" from the Poos Collection by Kay Triplett is one of our favorite titles and if you haven't seen it before then this little look is sure to excite you.

 If you love red and green quilts and have ever thought of making one then this book is for you....as always the photos are gorgeous, lots and lots of stunning quilts, lots of quilt history and 5 great projects to make.

We also have "Quilts and Rugs" by Polly Minick and Laurie Simpson.  As the title suggests this book is full of projects for both quilts and rugs.  There will surely be a project in this book that you will want to add to your list.

We are sending a big thank you to Vera today for this amazing show and tell.  Vera really didn't want to show us this quilt until it was finished and so we have promised her another photo of her finished quilt if she would allow us to share her work so far.

We totally fell in love with it and just had to share it.  Vera is making her quilt using Di Ford's "Miss Porter's Quilt" from her book "Primarily Quilts" and we just love Veras choice of colours.

 She is using the "Heartfelt" starter packs we have in the shop, cut for Margaret McDonald's wonderful quilt "Heartfelt"

  Vera has used these starter packs to great effect in this stunning quilt.....Vera we can't wait to see more of your beautiful work.

We are having a bit of a heatwave here in Victoria with temperatures set to rise to 41 degrees today...Sammy has only one thing to say...."can you turn the air conditioner up please."
