Birds, Flowers and drop-dead-gorgeous Paisleys!

More wonderful new fabrics to choose from this week ~ this time from the 3 Sisters for Moda fabrics and all 29 of them are gorgeous!  "Mille Couleurs" is inspired by antique textiles discovered and collected by the 3 Sisters on their many visits to France.   Not only are there sumptuous flowers, birds, damask prints and stripes ~ the paisleys are stunning and Corliss and I both took a little bit home that night to fussy-cut straight away.  The colours are rich yet still gentle -biscuit, mauve/purple, teal, walnut brown and a warm red.

 Today we also have the eighth in a series of just 10 of Corliss' favourite blocks from her forthcoming "Celebrating Mary Brown" quilt.  All the 10 blocks will be repeated in the complete pattern which will be released when the quilt is finished early 2016.  But for those eager to make a start or to make just a few of the blocks, the individual block patterns are all available on our website here.

We've been busy cutting and packaging lots of new muffins this week using some of the newest pinks, purples teals, blues, reds, greens, blacks, and yellows from our shelves.
A reminder that we will be open Melbourne Cup Day Tuesday 3 November from 11am-2pm.  
But before that, Threadbear will be at the Ballarat Quilters' Exhibition this weekend and we have lots of tempting fabrics and packs, books and patterns all packed and ready to go. All the details are available here. 
 Of course Sam has been his ever helpful self this week helping in the shop,  but did manage to take a quick minute out of his busy schedule to give Gracie a big sloppy kiss!  Have a great weekend everyone!
